    Specially the one with the Bigsby. Thexred one is superlight with thick strings for slide, and the creamy one is a fender telecaster guitar. Thats what i play most in my little band. That bigsby and a bit of reverb makes the lamest cowboychord shine. The Silverfaces gather dust thanks to the Tonemaster.....

    I have 5 Squiers. Four of them don't count because they are the Sheperd Fairey Obey Family. But I have a Squier II From Korea I bought for $65.00 about 15 years ago. The neck on this thing was made by someone at the top of their game. I love that guitar and will never sell it. Yours look great and I like the fact you put them up front and use them.

    Love my Squier guitars, playing my CV Starcaster now. I got the Cab with two Fideli'trons and like it as well. Digging the SF amps, too--that Pro Reverb is one of my bucket list amps.

    If/when I was playing small clubs with smaller stages (or an feeble excuse for one), I'd usually take my modded CV Thinline (Microcoils, Deaf Eddie 5 way switching), and guitar nerds out there would be surprised as to what I could cover with it. And, minimal worries if something nasty happened to it! Of course, nothing ever happens to the cheap ones...

    I became a Squier convert about 10 years ago thanks to the Classic Vibe series. There have been a few mods, over the years, but they are still first call.

    I got my vintage blond Classic Vibe 50 pinecaster in 2009, after reading all the positive comments on this forum... It is still my only tele - the only mod I did was install a 4-way switch - it doesn't need anything else doing to it!

    I have several Squiers.:)

    I especially like the logo (“spaghetti?”) on the red one! In what year and country was that one crafted?

    My Tele is a MIM, my Strat is MIJ.
    I have had to work on both of them to make and keep them stage worthy.
    The results have been well with the effort and expense.

    Admittedly, I will never get out of either what I have paid in to them.
    But, they are both ready to go onstage at any given time.

    I paid less than $200 for each of them.
    Over the years I have put around $400 into each of them.
    Pick-ups, pots and switches, cases, fret jobs ...

    LOVES me some Squeirs!

    Love Squier's. I've had a few over the years, but my current one a CVC is the best yet, and a keeper.

    Love my Squier Affinity. $130 off Craig’s list. Bubba Mod, a couple Cavalier pups, new pots/switch. Gets a lot of use. E1B885A4-BB16-43BB-9C23-928EF478F630.jpeg

    A few of my Squiers. The Teles are stock and the Strats are heavily modded.

    The Strats are both SEs. The white one has a beautiful neck from an '89 Korean Squier II.

    Sweet. Is that a Gretsch pickup at the neck?

    It’s a Korean neck. The rest is very partscaster.
