I have come so close several times now to pulling the trigger on a Classic Vibe. I've played the blonde Tele with maple neck, the sunburst Tele with rosewood, and sunburst Strat with rosewood. For the price the quality seems great on these and I've read some great things about them. All of the ones I've seen and played have great sounding pickups, nice finish and craftsmanship, and nice setup and playability. However, the same thing has held me up every time from making the purchase or trade - the neck. Every one I've played has a thin, heavily poly finished neck with the truss rod access at the nut with the thick plastic insert. Deal-breaker for me. I just can't get past it. I know I could buy the Squier and then purchase a replacement neck with vintage specs - vintage thickness, heel-access truss rod, and lacquer finish. But that neck would cost almost as much as the entire guitar. If they were really wanting to make these guitars have more of a vintage/"Classic" feel, I wonder why they did this. Everything else is vintage specs - tuners, bridge hardware, color options, etc. Surely it's not that big of a cost-cutter to put the truss access at the headstock vs heel and make the neck thinner. Are all models the same? Any suggestions on getting around this?
