Squier Classic Vibe 60's Stratocaster CAR 2009 & new hard case


This Squier Classic Vibe 60's Stratocaster finished in Candy Apple Red has had very light use. The Classic Vibe range from Squier has established itself as a very popular guitar. Excellent build quality & playability mean that it has become a firm favourite & it holds its price very well. Aged parts & superb alnico pickups (Made for Squier by Tonerider) result in a guitar that not only plays well but sounds great when you plug it in too

This guitar was made in China in 2009 and has been little used. The frets, trussrod & neck are all excellent. There are a couple of minor marks which have been photographed and are shown in the gallery, post repair. I did notice some slight corrosion marks on the bridge saddles & screws but these are minor points. The neck is good and the guitar is a great player. 

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £30 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that I won't ship a guitar in a gigbag

Here's what Fender say about the Classic Vibe Stratocaster

The rough-and-tumble Classic Vibe Stratocaster® '60s evokes that musically adventurous decade, adding a few modern features. The thick tone comes from the alnico V single-coil pickups—quick attack with a bit more midrange force. Custom staggered polepieces provide improved string-to-string balance. The 60s-style neck hosts a modern 9.5" radius for comfortable playing and string bending.
