Does anyone here own, or have played extensively, any guitar from Squier's "Vintage Modified" series?

I am interested in the '51, and the Jagmaster. Any feedback? I haven't been able to try any of them out.

I'm considering a Squier Tele or Fat Strat also.

I don't own any other guitars. I owned a Squier Strat, and then a Fender Mexican Telecaster, but had to sell all my gear last year because of finanical woes.

I like/used to play AC/DC, Zepplin, The Stones, The Who, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Scorpions, VH, Judas Priest, stuff like that.


I do plan on modding. I posess a decent level of mechanical ability.

I'm not sure what amp I'm going to buy. I had a 15 watt Fender and thought it was a great amp for the price.

if u want to get a more heavy rock sound for ACDC type music, make sure the guitar has a humbucker (like the Fat strat.)
yamaha 112J for $200, is also a nice guitar for $200.

make sure the guitar u end up with is made of Alder or Basswood, and it will hold up better for u when u decide to upgrade the pickups.

and if u want a good classic rock amp with effects, check out the Vox DA5.
a higher gain amp with effects, the micro cube from roland. both around $130.

as of right now, I'm planning on a Squier Tele, modded:

Fender Texas Tele bridge pickup

Seymour Duncan JB mounted in the pickguard between the stock pickups

some sort of 7-way swiching system


what do you think?

however I am still considering other guitars.


thanks for the amp suggestions. any experience with the low-end Fenders with the built-in effects?

yeah, not crazy about low end fenders. ive got a 25R, its fine for cleans but fender has trouble with anything heavier. even the moddling amp they make, i forget the name, is kind of alot of money for its use.

ull need to rout out for the humbucker. if ur into it i guess thats cool. JBs (which i also have) are kind of high treble, u might want to look at dimarzio.

also if u get a squier tele, make sure its the affinity (yeah ive got one.) any way they are alder. just cheaper cause the pickups are weak but great for modding.

I liked the distortion on my little Fender, but I will try out those suggestions.


Routing isn't a big deal for me. I don't have a router, but I'm sure I'll figure out some way to make clearance.


What's the difference between an Affinity and Standard Tele, becides the Affinity having a maple fretboard, which I like more than rosewood

we're just talking squiers right?

anyway, they are the same except affinities are alder with weaker pickups.

and the standard is agathis (dead sounding alder) with better pickups. (still sub par tho)

so ur spending more for the electronics ur going to swap out anyway. spend less and get the better wood.


i dont have a router either so i bought a forstner drill bit and dug holes in the back of my epi with a hand drill to make a cavity.




also fender reliability isnt there in their small solid state amps. they typically pick up a buzzing from shoddy electronics.
their small tube amps are great tho.

Thank you. I couldn't see there being a huge difference in the Squier line.


That's similar to how I was planning to create clearance, but with a power drill or with a dremel tool.

dremmel wont cut thru alder. mine starts to burn out way before making a dent in the wood.
its good for cleaning up a hole like the one i made tho.

How about a handheld drill and one of those two-piece bits for cutting holes for door knobs and ****?

yeah that's what a forstner bit looks like.
think it cuts up the guitar a little better and they have different sizes.
google it, thats what i did, then bought a 1" bit for about $8.
