This guitar is an absolute feast for the eyes. I originally considered the "Satin Sonic Blue" with a gold pickguard, but mainly because of the vintage hardware and the satin finish I chose the "Satin Wide 2-Color Sunburst" and it is gorgeous.
- appearance - overall gorgeous color matching. Satin treatment of neck and body. Aged vintage hardware.
- sound - the reviews don't lie. The sound is wonderful in all positions. I originally thought, that I would replace the pickups with "Fender Tex-Mex" in the future, but now I am convinced, that I will save money here.
- tuning - the guitar stays tuned well (but I don't use a tremolo, see the Cons), so only the strings will change.
- setup - the guitar is playable right out of the box. The neck is straight, nothing rattles. Sensors are one poem.
- playability - I enjoy every minute that I have it in my hand.
- tremolo - it holds like a charm. It cannot be moved. I've read on the forums that this happens with the Squier Classic Vibe, so I'll try their advice and see how it affects the tuning / sound.
- weight - the guitar is heavier than my Epiphone Les Paul Special II.
- details of the processing - there is a small splash of paint on the body where it connects to the neck - it doesn't bother me personally, but I noticed it.
- processing of frets detail - for me the only disappointment on this guitar. You won't scratch on the frets, but they are not particularly comfortable, compared to my "cheap Les Paul", and if you look closely, you can see small unevenness at the fret ends and also a glue in some places.
One does not expect that in this price category, especially when my significantly cheaper Epiphone is without a single flaw. However, it certainly depends on the piece.
A beautiful vintage machine, with a perfect sound. If I move the tremolo, I won't let it go from my hands.
