    Hi I want to thank everyone for helping me. I appreciate all your feedback. You all are the best! Well, like I stated earlier, I just a got a Gladiator Telecaster Copy. I believe they have Wilkinson Pickups. Has anyone ever owned the Gladiator Telecaster like the one I have see below. Would you say they are par with the Classic Vibe 50s Butterscotch or Vintage Blondie Tele's? Correct me if I am wrong but are the Wilkinson Pickups Ceramic? I know the Classic Vibe series has Alnico 5 in them. I havent been able to compare and/or try them side by side. If it is a toss up between the two would you all get the Classic Vibe Series or the Gladiator Guitars. Any info you can provide would be helpful. Again thank you all very much.

    Not seeing any pics.....but as to would I buy CV Squier or Gladiator? I've never touched a Gladiator, so I have to say the Squier. Seem to retain SOME re-sale value.

    The classic vibes come with two different pickups, the blond has alnico 3 I think.
    I have never seen or heard of a gladiator tele so can't comment on that.
    I think the classic vibe series are hard to beat for the dollars.
    Great guitars regardless of price imo.

    Thanks, but what I SHOULD have said was, "I haven't held or played a Gladiator." I'm kinda funny, but how a guitar FEELS and PLAYS is more important than how it LOOKS. ;)
