    Product Description

    This beautiful Squier FSR Classic Vibe electric guitar pays homage to the earliest semi-hollow Tele Thinline models from the '60s, but with a slight contemporary twist thanks to a cool silver anodized pickguard! Providing all of the vibe and character of those coveted, classic instruments but without the ridiculous vintage pricing — this is your chance to grab a brilliant, bang-for-your-buck guitar with elegant style and scintillating sonics.

    Boasting a stealthy metallic black finish, crisp-sounding single-coil pickups, a player-friendly "C"-shaped neck with a 9.5" fingerboard radius, nickel-plated hardware and 1960s-inspired headstock markings — this is a spellbinding instrument that you really don't want to miss out on!

    Key Features

    • Semi-Hollow Nato Body — Promises an "airy" and resonant sound with rich overtones. Lightweight design makes it perfect for performing onstage with!
    • Bolt-On Construction — Produces a snappy note response for an immediate playing experience.
    • "C"-Shaped Neck — Slim profile provides comfortable playability, suitable for both traditional and contemporary players.
    • Vintage-Tint Gloss Neck Finish — Gives the guitar an aged look reminiscent of true '60s instruments.
    • Narrow Tall Frets — Offer a controllable feel for wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.
    • Fender-Designed Alnico Pickups — Two single-coils deliver the iconic "spanky" sound synonymous with Telecasters. 3-way switch provides a wide tonal palette too!
    • Strings-Through-Body Bridge — 3-saddle bridge captures the legendary look and sound of '50s and '60s Teles, with string-through design boosting body resonance.
      Bone Nut — Classic, low-friction material minimises unwanted tuning slips and enhances sustain.
    • Vintage-Style Tuners — High-quality, old-school tuning machines allow for precise string pitching.

    The FSR looks and plays great. Only problem, the neck pickup was really lame. It sounded way too dark, underpowered and muddy. Consequently, it ruins the middle position as well. Only the bridge pup provided the power and clarity a Tele should have. Andertons refused to discount me or replace the pickup. So, basically, I have a guitar with only one sound and one usable position. I will have to upgrade at my own expense. Other than that, the axe is nice. I look forward to replacing the ****** pickup so the guitar can come alive and perform the way it should.

    Andertons did a full inspection, everything was set up well and ready to play right out of the box. Fit and finish are flawless, smooth fret edges and a well-cut bone nut. Black sparkle finish has to be seen in person to really appreciate it. Was surprised to find a higher-end selector switch. This one really captures the 'Bakersfield' sound.

    Seems I got really lucky with this particular squier, probably the best out of the box squier ever had my hands on (and that's quite a few!), beautiful guitar and flawless, frets, finish, everything - very happy and feels better than some expensive guitars. Amazing!

    A brilliant FSR offering from Andertons. I saw these on YouTube when they first arrived and the recent sale discount meant I could not say no any longer! If I could give 4.5 stars I would - its nearly perfect Build quality, looks (honestly so good) and playability are all great. As close to a certain Texas Tea Thinline model as you can get without denting the savings! My only two (minor) issues are the finish on the frets (they just need a final polish but not unexpected on a Squier) and the tone of the neck pickup - the pickup just sounds muffled and a bit lifeless. None of the mid range 'honk' expected HOWEVER this guitar is so good elsewhere that I am going to simply upgrade the pickup in the future. Again something I often find on the lower budget ranges so not unexpected. No issues with the tuners / tuning stability, intonation was pretty good and the truss rod / action only needed a minor tweak once unboxed and allowed to settle. I can see this guitar being played and gently tweaked over the years to become a serious everyday player.
