    I was beginning to think there was no love at all for the Vintage Modified Telecaster. I love mine. Plays great could not be happier with it.

    Did you change the bridge on that guitar, it's just you mentioned it was a VM and my esquire in my signature was a VM telecaster special with the duncan design JM neck pickup and tele bridge pup. (Mines modified now, obviously)

    Yes I replaced the bridge with a Fender 6 saddle.

    What is your opinion on that lovely Tele? Would you recommend it? There is one in my local classified and I am debating buying it.

    I like it a lot, it's Jazzmaster neck is a little thicker than my Strat or Jaguar, but not as thick as my Les Paul. Seems just right to me. I think it has a great sound depending on what you like to play. I haven't noticed any change in the twang since changing the bridge. If the price is right I think you will be happy with it. It's my most played guitar at the moment, but that changes with me.

    If you like the Jazzmaster neck pickup then go for it (if not, mod it haha), it's my best player and a lot of others will agree, check out it's reviews here,

    http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/squier-vintage-modified-telecaster-special-electric-guitar

    seventeen 5 stars and two 4 stars reviews, bargain at what they sold for.

    (Mines in my signature, has a white blonde finish.)

    I've left all the hardware on mine and really like the bridge, tuners and has a great neck profile for me. The only thing I've really done is swap the pickups, I took the neck pickup out because I don't really like dark sounding pickups and put a fender '62 bridge pickup in it because I had one spare for some reason. Other than that I've messed with the electronics but that's the same on all my guitars. ;)

    Is the Jazzmaster neck pickup really that dark? I thought it would be less than a normal Tele pickup.

    It's darker than a tele neck pickup but not as dark as a humbucker. I really like JM pickups in a jazzmaster with 1 meg pots, a 0.033uF tone cap and an available strangle switch, just not with 250k pots and a 0.047uF tone cap. I just think JM pickups don't work as well with tele electronics, also I really wanted an esquire at the time haha.

    Wow. I'm glad I saw this post. I was given this tele this summer and I couldn't figure out what model Squier tele I had. The decal was sanded off and replaced with the Fender style one. I had no idea of the year of this. Is this what I may have too? Its 2 piece ash body string through style. Classic style tuners. Wires have been re-soldered. I have no idea if the pups are stock. Intonation was not set as you can see. Buzzed like crazy. Simple bridge adjustment and.. its awesome!

    Well it has an electrosocket jack cup so I guess the previous owner liked to tinker so my guess the pups are stock. Are you sure the body is ash I've never seen a squier with an ash body. I think deciding what model it is going to be difficult, that's the most common tele colour around, no serial number, probably has a number of parts swapped out like the pickguard, pickups, other electronics (Probably?), jack cup, maybe tuners. I mean there could be very little difference between that guitar and some partscasters out there but that doesn't mean it's a bad guitar it just means it has no credentials haha.

    The black strat on the right is an E7 mij Squier that I inherited. A great guitar, it doesn't get played much as my wife is extremely sentimental about it but man does it sound fantastic, better than any mim or Mia strat I've had. I really want to crack it open and see what's inside it.

    More pics of it. The cream colored tele is an Ash bodied Harley Benton. The pic clearly shows where the 2 pieces meet at the neck joint. Prob just a partscaster indeed.. but still requires more work. The input jack i thought was an upgrade but ... it couldn't be a Fender body could it?

    You'd have to remove the pickguard and the neck for clues to find a specific brand for the body but yes that looks just like ash. That jack isn't found on fenders as far as I'm aware so I don't think it would be wise to ID the body on that point. Anyway my advice would be to remove the pickguard and see if you can find any clues, then take the neck off to check the pocket.
