Very good guitar for the money.

11.03.2016
I bought this as I've only heard good things about these guitars. For those who are familiar with cheaper Squier's this guitar is totally different. The pickups are great and the neck is lovely to play on and the guitar is well finished on the whole. There was a wiring problem when it arrived but that's been fixed. I will be upgrading the electrics later as they are not good quality (apart from the pickups).

Chinese-SQUIER vs. Mexico FENDER - 3: 1 !!!

Eberhardo, 20.03.2015
I could (thanks to Thomann shipping!) This Squier model against the following red Mexico-Fender: 'Fender standard Strat MN CAR' - As a hind I had finallyhhhh times' ne 'real' Fender to own.
[Both guitars came by the way well set with me; At the Squier, however, the tremolo was set too tight, but after a phone call with the Thomann guitar specialists I knew how to change this]

Sound and appearance are, of course, pure taste; But in my eyes and ears the 'Squier Classic Vibe' is the winner!
(For the tube-deer / -rehe: I've done the test on a modulation combo - I know, yes, yuck!), Sorry about that, but I do not have the money for an original fender combo, but I Still have that dream!)

It is true that both of the Klampfen necks are C-shaped, but the neck of the 'Classic Vibe' is more pleasing and, in my view, easier to play; The neck of the Mexico fender is generally chunky and also thicker.

While the Mexico Fender with its standard singlecoils has a pretty wumms and therefore probably the Hard faction satisfies, the Vintage Singlecoils of the Squier offer a very wide range, which is in no frequency range too obtrusive and nevertheless characteristically enforces itself.
And the strat typical sounds are the same as Stratocaster fans expect from the 5 switch positions on the 'Squier Classic Vibe'!

The bass of the Mexico fender is too bold and obtrusive in most pickup circuits, and when you try to reduce the amp's power, the sound instantly lacks dynamics and enforcement.

The Squier has already played dry (so unreinforced) already a bass, which goes really nice in the belly; Nevertheless, you do not need to fiddle much at the amp in the bass section, because the balance of the strings is balanced (well, strat-like!) So that you get even differentiated 6 string strummings and basses even with distorted overdrive sounds -trees can play.

Well and then there is the price; For (at my purchase time !!) round 150, -? Less to get a better Strat, is also not without!

Only the artificially aged "aged" design of pickup caps, controls and tremolo lever cap are combined with the darkened painted fingerboard. For this I would not necessarily have a pure-white pickguard mounted (but here I already have a change idea ...)
For me, all this is not so much in the weight - And therefore:

VERY CLEAR RECOMMENDATION FOR THE 'CLASSIC VIBE STRAT 50'S SWG' !!!!!
