Squier Classic Custom Telecaster 3TS 2016 & new hard case


The Classic Vibe range from Squier really are very good. They have been building them for around 10 years now & they just seem to get better & better. This particular model is styled like the Fender 62 custom telecaster. They have done an excellent job & the only main differences I could see were that the binding is white rather than creme & the transfer on the headstock. That's about it! Classic Vibe guitars have always had Tonerider pickups fitted which are excellent. Check out the reviews

This particular guitar was built in 2016 & has barely been used. I gave it a restring & a quick setup & it plays really well with low action.  The guitar has no chips, scratches, dents or anything else & truly is in "as new" condition. A quick check online will show that these guitars can be bought new for around £460.00 but that is without a case. This guitar is supplied with a new Thomann hard case, so it's a really good buy.

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

Squier Classic Vibe Custom Telecaster 3 Tone Sunburst

Here's what Fender say about the Classic Vibe Custom Telecaster

This beautiful 3-Color Sunburst over Alder model features a double bound body and mint green pickguard. The vintage tint gloss maple neck with rosewood Fingerboard has 21 medium-jumbo frets and a modern 9.5” radius—other features include vintage style tuners and a 3-saddle bridge with threaded saddles. A custom set of alnico V single-coil pickups provides warmth and clarity and enough punch for country, blues, rock and jazz.
