    What's nuts is I bought a neck ADVERTISED as unfinished, but it was still water sealed.

    And of course, if you ever decide to do this, kiss your Squier logo goodbye.

    I got no problem brandishing a Squier logo. damn neck is blinding white. The guitar plays and sounds like a Tele should. Was just curious about making the neck darker...just a was hoping there was an easier way to make it darker. Damn thing is so light...

    Here she is with her new mint pickguard. I set the action and rocked out for 2 hours (just sailed by, was having such fun). I love this guitar!!

    A tad dark on the exposure, but it's such a subtle difference. 8$ from musiclily on Amazon, fits perfectly!

    Aye Spider! I have had awful luck with pickguards fitting (on my Rondo partscaster), pleasantly surprised here, $8, had to give it a try...really looks great in person. I admit my photography skills are sub-par.

    Aaahhhhrrghhh! Sweet with mint ($8!) guard!!!
    I'm pulling the trigger- can't pass this price point up
    Anyway- I need a beater to keep out while grandchildren are around!!
    This will be my first straight tele, so I can add a stripe to my TDPRI sleeve as well
    I'll post with pics when it arrives to the high desert
    Curse You!, Squier!!! You're making this hard by making it so easy!!! How many guitars will be enough!
    ...Epiphone Dot, anyone???

    I'm in. Just needed the usual truss-rod tweak and action adjustment out of the box. Frets are nice with no sprouting; fretboard looks good. A good deal (and for $45, an absolutely insane deal).

    Thanks richey88. I had $82 worth of Musician's Friend green stamps to turn in, plus they gave me 15% off.

    What are your thoughts on the rosewood fingerboard?
    Mine has the tightest grain I have ever seen.
    These are sweet guitars.
    After having mine for a month, I am amazed at the value,
    price vs. overall quality.
    Enjoy yours :)

    Fretboard on mine looks pretty good, I think, especially for the price. The board is definitely on the thin side, as pointed out previously. Overall, the neck, while by no means "chunky," is still fatter than the one on the Strat version of this they are also selling--I picked up one of those for a sec, and the neck was so thin it felt like it was going to break.

    A little guitar honey (i forget the brand name) and mine is lovely. Back and 'stock are blinding though.....plays amazing.

    Just hammered mine at practice. Came through like a champ. Wish I had just started playing, my "affordable" axes in the 70's weren't nearly as good. Think I will rock this at my gig this weekend...

    killer tele @ $134.99/shipped (yes, MF shows $149.99, but do an online chat for a coupon code). heck, i bought one, it'll make for an excellent tele for beginner or pro alike. yep, i'll be tweaking it just a bit, too ... 'cause i can. :lol:

    fwiw, it's "surf green" (light mint) not "seafoam green" (darker green).

    Darn it! I'm out for now-
    Grabbed a project at a pawnshop when GC didn't have one of those teles in San Antonio when I dropped in-
    Only in town for a bit, so grabbed what I could- should be fun-

    At least I end up with a Squier bullet!!
    Sound is OK, intonation and two bridge screws gets it there I think.
    How about a set of red,blue,gold Lace Sensors and a nice tortoiseshell pick guard?? that might be fun!!
    Darn!!!- I'm still thinking I NEED that tele now...

    I went for mint (to match my Duo-Sonic). Gigged with 'er today, neck pickup is slightly microphonic). Will address shortly. Overall I tore it up mainly on the bridge and riding the volume knob. Great stuff for little coin! View attachment 441761

    Love the color, I mean I LOVE it, but I just can't get with the rest- tried two of 'em, just felt cheap to me, as though you're tallying all the replacement pieces you'll need to buy as you plink your first horribly intonated semi-chord. I believe a Squier can play for hire, I do, but this one didn't stand up to my first blush test....
