Squire Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom Black 2011
Squire Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom, black on black, made in Indonesia 2012. The Cort factory in Indo makes some great guitars for a heap of different brands; these Vintage Modified series guitars punch well past their price bracket and are some of the best guitars Squier have made in recent years. This is a take on the classic Tele Custom; the Keith-style neck humbucker and bridge single coil are a great combo. The thick juicy plonk of the neck pickup balances the chiming twang of the bridge pickup nicely. The neck is a tasty chunky piece of maple, it's easy to get along with. This is a handy little guitar for a killer dollar; can't go too wrong there!
