I found a squier cv 50´s tele with dimarzio twang king pickups for 270 pounds is it worth buying or should I buy a fender telecaster instead

It is an excellent choice, though I might look into a new one and pick out one that sings to you instead of buying a used one w/ upgrades you may not need or want. I personally love the stock pups on my two CV guitars.

No need for upgrades here from the stock guitar.

Agreed Jimmy. Just got a 50's Tele in Butterscotch Monday. Can't put it down! And best of all I got from a M&P Store!

If I remember correctly, Twang Kings are highly regarded. Just my opinion, they'd be a bonus on a guitar that already feels great.

I own a Fender Standard Tele which is a nice guitar, but my Squier VMs (a Special and an HSS) get more play time. The pickups in the VMs are Duncan designed--good sounding. CVs have Fender designed pickups.

CV's are good.

I own one of these as well. To be honest, there's not much difference in feel and tone from my Fender '52 reissue.

I picked up one during the August Fender promotion. Playing it thru my 25R. I'm very pleased. Well worth the money (350.00 CAN)

It took a lot of restraint to not buy one of these today. Plugged it in through a 66 Pro Reverb. Goodness, I couldn't find one thing wrong with it, from playability to tone to fit and finish. The shop had two, one natural the other white. Both were consistent in quality.

There really aren't anything wrong with most of the Squier stuff these days that's not $100.

I've gotten a Mascis Jazzmaster (first of the cheap offsets to emerge), a surf green Jaguar, and a Sonic Blue Mustang (courtesy the man who ordered exactly the color I wanted before he flipped it to me!).

The only two problems I have with any of them (other than both the surf green and sonic blue are a lighter hue than I'd like in a perfect world, but within what Fender sells typically) is the pickguard screw holes on the Jaguar were very rough under the guard, and the Mustang has a slightly uglier piece of rosewood than would have normally cleared QC than what I've seen.

Both very minor things that do not affect playability at all.

For once even the necks are decent and don't cramp up my arm too.

@reverandbob, I've had good luck even w/ the $100 squiers. Most just need a little nut lube and strings stretched and they are good to go.

They're playable, don't get me wrong.

Worlds better than what was a starter instrument for a hundred bucks when I started 20-something years ago...it's just that well, thankfully, I don't have to stay that low on the food chain.

I tried out a few Teles recently, and was very impressed with the tone, feel, and playability of the Classic Vibe 50s. It was the most "Telecaster-like" of all the ones I tried.

Ther's a nice used one at the local pawnshop. Owner apparently "aged" the hardware and did an excellent job. The body has a few minor dings so it looks like a closet classic.

Wha? I thought that you were the King of Squiers? Or is it just the newer ones that are "low on the food chain"? ;o)

I have a 50s cv and another tele with a twang king. Stock cv pup sounds almost identical to the twang king into.

I havent been playing long and am a new learner, but I bought one the other day.

All I can say is WOW WOW WOW, these things can really sing, even the finish was immaculate. I tried the Mexican Tele, Mexican Strat and was (of course) really impressed. Then the salesman brought out a Classic Vibe 50's Tele. In my mind I was thinking, na, not Squier, but then I played a few chords and a few licks and the thing just had "buy me" written all over it.

I think for what you get with the budget price is astonishing as opposed to forking out the extra £120 for the Mexicans.

Really impressed, every time I walk past the damn thing I just have to play it......
