How good can a Squier Telecaster sound?
That's a Squier Classic Vibe 50's Telecaster in Butterscotch Blonde you see being played.
Now if I didn't tell you that at first, you probably would have thought the player was playing something really expensive. He's not. It's a Squier, and from the looks of it, it's all-original and hasn't been modified - not that it needs to be, because it's more than good enough on its own.
Several have called the CV 50's Tele the best guitar Squier makes. Looks right, feels right and sounds right. With certain other Squier axes there are some components that could be upgraded. But on the CV 50's Tele, it doesn't need a damned thing as it is one of those "needs nothing/just plug in and go" guitars.
I may one day get myself another Telecaster, as I did own one previously. While I do love the Jazzmaster, the best bang-for-the-buck Tele is the Squier CV 50's. Nothing else comes close to how unbelievably good the CV Tele is. It's the classic Telecaster formula all the way through, front to back and everywhere in between.
I'd be very happy to own a blonde one just like the kind seen in the video.
