FDP Forum / The Squier Forum / Just ordered a Classic vibe Tele...

...in Vintage Blonde! I want a beater guitar something that I can take to my rehersal studio, to a picnic, camping or a bbq at a friends. I love my 52RI Tele and all my other guitars but they are too precious and delicate to take out on a frequent basis (Gretsches, Gibsons, Fenders etc).

I LOVE Tele's for their tone, versatility, simplicity and they can take rough handling well and are durable. So this led me to a cheaper Tele and after research all fingers pointed towards the classic vibe. My 52 RI is a Butterscotch so I ordered the Vintage blonde. I think it will look really nice with a three ply white pickguard! Hope I made the correct decision. Looking forward to hearing your love stories with the Classic Vibes!

You can't go wrong with the CV's imo.
I'd have a hard time thinking of one as a "beater" though. Just 'cause they don't have a MIA price tag doesn't mean they're an inferior instrument.

I'll be interested to hear what you think about its beater status after you've played it for a while :^)

Congratulations too!

I think Deep’s “beater” application has nothing to do with inferiority. I think it has everything to do with cost/risk ;o)

The CV Tele is a fantastic guitar. It just might be the best Squier ever made.

This guy has done a couple of videos on CV Teles.
This one is on this guitar only.
In another one he compares it to an AVRI 52.

FWIW, he has a ton of videos on YT, and IMO they are among the best.
Not a lot of yakking or wanking.

Outstanding choice. Give it a good setup and don't be surprised if it becomes your No. 1.

Peego is correct. I'm not dissing the CV as inferior in anyway. Just that I'd feel more at ease leaving it in rehersal space or anywhere unattended or for younger kids to bang on etc.

I'm quite excited about changing that black pickguard to white and if the neck is a tad too small for my taste then get a rosewood neck and make it look like a classic Steve Cropper and Mike Bloomfield type mid-60's Tele!

These are nice guitars, but the necks are smaller, including a narrower nut. Depending on you tastes, this might not be an issue.
