So, apparently, the Vintage Modified series aren't the only new thing Squier's got. Several new guitars are either out, or will soon be out, under their "Classic Vibe" name.

Of particular interest is the fourth link I've provided, which is apparently a reissue of the Fender Duo Sonic, something similar to a Mustang.


Opinions? I'm already lusting for the Duo Sonic as a slide guitar...

that telecaster is tasty as hell.

black-sabbath, it's true it's easier to gain a reputation than lose one but give the new squiers a chance instead of ****ting on them because of the name on the headstock and chances are you'll be pleasantly suprised

I think they need to reissue the Musicmaster personally, I own an original from 1965, and it is a perfect blues guitar. It's beat to hell and I'd like to get another to preserve what's left of my original.

Wow, I might just purchase that Classic Vibe Tele =)

I was played a Squier Tele today, and was really impressed with it. Loved the tone!

I've always hated Squire for their cheapness. Especially the stop dreaming start playling pack. but looks like they've really improved however.

I've got a VM series and to be honest I think it's pretty crap... but to each his own.

These look pretty interesting. It's a bit of an odd mix though as a series - the two Strats being made with alder and the normal smaller headstock shape (thank **** for that, I can't stand the huge headstock Squiers normally use - which is the only reason I bought the VM Strat in the first place), then out of nowhere the Tele is made of pine
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

So you TDPRI or Fender forum much?

I'm GASing for that Pine Tele! Lots of the Tele collectors at the Tele forum are giddy like little school girls. But then, most peasants noobs aren't familiar with the history of Pine Teles.

please enlighten me on the "pine tele" history...

Well, from the short amount of research I was able to do in the last five minutes, Leo's first guitar was made of pine.

Apparently, if it's not plywood, pine is a pretty fair tonewood. not as cheap as it may sound, at least.

They all look tasty ... next step is to audition them and see how they stack up.

Anyway, check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fender_Esquire

The first prototype for the Esquire (and the later Telecaster) was completed by Leo Fender in the fall of 1949. The prototype shared with these guitars the now-familiar slab body shape with single cutaway to allow easier access to the upper frets. It likewise featured the distinctive combination bridge and pickup assembly, with a slanted pickup with individual pole pieces for each string, and three bridge saddles which allowed adjustment of string length in pairs and individual string height. The neck, like the first Esquires manufactured in 1950, was made from a single piece of maple without a truss rod. The neck was attached to the body with four screws and an anchor plate, unlike in traditional guitar construction, where a tenon on the neck is glued into the body. Unlike the Esquire, the neck was wider at the nut, and the head had 3 tuners on each side. The prototype differed from the later production guitars in several other respects: the body was made of pinewood, it was painted opaque white, its scratch plate covered the lower bout only, it lacked a selector switch, and its volume and tone knobs were mounted on a slanted plate. [2] Like the production models, it had a removable pickup cover, but unlike on the production models, the cover had straight sides. [3] Like all Esquires manufactured from 1951 onwards, the prototype had only one pickup.

Both the Fender and Tele (TDPRI) forums have PineCaster collectors and fanatics. Check out Guitar Mill, USCGA, etc. for Pine Tele bodies.

thank you mighty Ippon

you always make a thread more interesting... seriously

Yeah, I honestly thought they meant plywood when they said pine.....but, after finding all this out, I may have finally found my Telecaster....

I knew the first Esquire prototype was pine, but I didn't know they still use pine in guitars at all. Actually, the old Gibson Melody Maker (with the single P-90) was a pine/cedar combination I believe.

I've got a Spanish flamenco guitar that is made of pine (the back and sides, at least). It sounds excellent.

I assumed it was another low grade agathis guitar with nice parts, but low end alder, this makes it even tastier (though not a huge improvement) I'd love to try one of these!

Squier’s Classic Vibe Telecaster ’50s puts classic “blackguard” Telecaster vibe into a gorgeous Vintage Blonde-finished pine-body guitar—you’ll be hard-pressed to tell whether or not you are holding a premium ash-body instrument.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
