When Fender originally launched the Telecaster Custom model in 1972, they set out to create a rock guitar that would appeal to a new generation of more aggressive guitarists. That’s why they outfitted it with a humbucker at the neck and a hotter bridge pickup. To capture that same spirit, Squier equipped the Classic Vibe ’70s Telecaster Custom with a rockin’ Fender Designed pickup duo. First, there’s the Wide Range humbucker at the neck, for beefy tone with serious impact. To complement that, an alnico Tele single-coil bridge pickup delivers the classic, biting Telecaster lead tone you’ve heard on countless hits. Top that off with a full set of volume and tone controls for each pickup, and the Squier Classic Vibe ’70s Telecaster Custom makes dialing in the perfect sound a piece of cake.
Since its introduction, Squier’s Classic Vibe series has been the go-to source for affordable takes on original-era Fender guitars. From the Fender-voiced pickups and reformulated vintage colors to the modern neck profiles, fingerboard radii, and narrow tall frets, Squier has gone back to the drawing board to bring you a vintage-inspired guitar with the smooth playability and tonal versatility today’s guitarists demand. Take it from Music Experience: From its cool vintage visuals to its great tone and playing feel, there’s pure magic — and tremendous value — in the Squier Classic Vibe ’70s Telecaster Custom!
Squier's tapped into something really cool with their Classic Vibe series — hot mods of classic Fenders, all sporting top-shelf materials and components, with primo fit-and-finish.
