At Music Experience, we love the chance to explore the reimagined takes on classic instruments that define our musical odyssey. Squier has taken their ubiquitous Telecaster and done exactly that. The 27-inch baritone maple neck lets you combine the historic look of an iconic Fender design with heavy-hitting riffs and down-tuned licks. Presented with a trademark 3-color sunburst finish, nickel hardware, and '60s-inspired headstock details, this vintage design is the perfect contrast to the grumbling lows of the Fender-designed alnico single-coil pickups. The “C”-shaped neck is accompanied by a 9.5-inch Indian laurel fingerboard, boasting 22 narrow-tall frets for smooth, accessible play and offering a swift transition to the tenacious tuning of a baritone axe. Make no mistake, the Squier Classic Vibe Baritone Custom Telecaster pulls no punches with its bevy of bass.
This baritone behemoth draws from the iconic Telecaster models of the 1960s, including a 3-color sunburst finish that is complemented by era-influenced headstock detailing. The nickel-plated flourish gleams across the hardware, from the vintage-style tuning machines to the barrel-saddled string-through bridge. Additionally, the Indian laurel fingerboard sits atop a vintage-tint, high-gloss maple neck, embellishing the darker hues of the sunburst finish. Ultimately, these design cues culminate in an unmistakable, deeply desired look just waiting to take you by surprise with its sonic spread.
Don’t let the familiar design fool you. Beneath its bright veneer, this solidbody hits low and heavy. A robust nyatoh body forms the backbone of this baritone’s bass-y breadth. This tonewood is often used for its similarities to mahogany, making this ideal for a powerful midrange, bringing out full heft of a baritone’s aural offerings. Two alnico single-coil pickups — wired to a sturdy 3-way switch — are anchored to this lighter-weight body, allowing for comfortable play and reliable resonance, without losing that desired low end.
The neck is where you really decide if an axe is worth being your daily driver. This baritone Telecaster boasts a 27-inch, “C”-shaped neck, built to accommodate low tunings while preserving timbre, promising the sound you want, minus the muddiness of traditional scale at similar tunings. There are 22 narrow-tall frets that divide the 9.5-inch radius fingerboard, making for smooth play accessible at any range. To take full advantage of its Fender-designed roots, the string-through-body bridge — sporting barrel saddles — is designed for optimal resonance, ensuring that everything from your deepest drone to the hottest high register has plenty of room to ride.
A nod to the double-bound Tele® models of the 1960s, the Classic Vibe Baritone Custom Telecaster has the extended 27" scale length needed for baritone tuning. With incredible tone courtesy of the Fender-Designed alnico single-coil pickups, this Tele features a “C”-shaped neck profile with an easy-playing 9.5”-radius fingerboard and narrow-tall frets, as well as a vintage-style Telecaster bridge with barrel saddles and string-through-body design. This throwback Squier model also features 1960s-inspired headstock markings, rich-looking nickel-plated hardware and a slick vintage-tint gloss neck finish for an old-school vibe.
