Fender has announced three new finishes for the Squier “Classic Vibe” series guitars for 2009 and we’ve got ’em! Check ’em out: Lake Placid Blue 50’s Strat, Olympic White 50’s Strat with Gold Anodized Pickguard and Candy Apple Red 60’s Strat.
Since our first batch in early 2008, the Classic Vibes have been a runaway success. We fell in love with the AlNiCo pickups for their authentic vintage tone and of course, the vintage look and feel of the guitars. What surprised us the most was the exceptional quality! These guitars truly hearken back to the age of Pro-Tones or, more recently, Vista Series models in terms of overall fit and finish.
And of course, the only way to get the Musicmaster-esque Duo-Sonic in any form from Fender is in the Classic Vibe series. Trust us, the new Duo-Sonic beats the heck out of the old 90’s models (even the ones that said Fender on the headstock).
Which reminds us – don’t buy the headstock, buy the guitar!
