I bought myself a new guitar for my birthday. It’s a little early. My birthday is not til October but I couldn’t pass up the chance to own this guitar. It’s rather special.
It’s a Squier Classic Vibe 70s Telecaster Custom Maple Fingerboard 3-Color Sunburst.
Squier are relatively cheap guitars made in Indonesia (I think) under license from Fender.
It’s based on an early 70s design with a single coil pickup in the bridge position and a wide range humbucker in the neck.
Keith Richards had one of the originals and played it on all those classic 70s Stones albums.
It sounds stunning. The back pickup nails the Keef tone perfectly. The front is beautifully mellow.
I’m off to put the guitar into a G tuning and make a bloody racket 🙂
