Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline

Long name for a guitar, right?

I just call mine Veronica.

So far my favorite. The sound of semi-hollow goodness gets me every time. After playing it for a while I quickly understood why so many reviewers recommend it, and why so many consider it as good as more expensive guitars. The tone is great. Clean, twangy, and gutsy when I need it.

What I like about the Thinline:

The sound. Even unplugged, it just sounds so damn nice.
The look. It is gorgeous. The mahogany is covered in a very nice clear finish. Everything just looks great.
The feel. Maybe I got lucky, but this guitar feels fantastic. The neck, with it's modern 9.5” radius, and smooth fretwork is a joy. It simply glides.
It is light. Being semi-hollow has more advantages than just good sound.

What I don't like about the Thinline:

Nothing. I won't be changing pickups or pegs. I won't change the bridge. I love her just as she is.
I think Tammy (my better half) is a bit jealous.
