Squier Classic Vibe 60s Stratocaster by Fender
I am playing this guitar straight into a Fender Blues Jr III Gold Rush FSR Amplifier.
This demo is literally straight out of the box. I haven’t set the Classic Vibe up and the original strings are still on it. I will also do a new demo once the set up is complete through different amplifiers.
The rough-and-tumble Classic Vibe Stratocaster® ’60s evokes that musically adventurous decade, with a few modern features added. The alder body has a Three-Color Sunburst or Candy Apple Red finish; the ’60s-era vintage-tint gloss-maple neck has a rosewood Fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets and a modern 9.5″ radius. The thick tone comes from the alnico V single-coil pickups–quick attack with a bit more mid range force and a knockout bridge pickup. Custom staggered pole pieces provide improved string-to-string balance.

I did need to make a few tweaks out of the box which included – New Strings, small adjustments to the nut (had to clear some debris out of there), one half turn on the neck to straighten it out and I also lowered the action on two of the strings. The Intonation was spot on, so I didn’t need to do anything with that. The video below is the same guitar after I made some adjustments to the Squier Classic Vibe 60s Stratocaster.
The video above is a testament to how the Squier Classic Vibe 60s Stratocaster will sound through two professional tube amplifiers.
