    Thought it was a classic vibe 70 but the tuners are throwing me for a loop all the tuners i see are vintage 20201024_095705_01.jpg 20201024_095746.jpg

    I'd guess Tele Deluxe. The 70's I've seen have fat headstock and the poles on the pickups are 3up 3down.

    Edit: Looks a lot like a model called Telecaster Custom.

    I thought the deluxe had a larger headstock and a cut away body

    You might be right.

    I'm seeing one called Telecaster Custom that looks exactly like yours. Does your headstock say Custom on it?

    Maybe I'm hallucinating (entirely possible), but every Tele Custom I've seen had a standard Telecaster bridge/single coil pickup with a Wide Range HB at the neck. The Deluxe has a large 70's Stratocaster headstock and two Wide Range humbuckers. This guitar is more a mash up of the two with standard humbuckers. Some kind of "Alternate Universe" Squier model perhaps?"

    I found this page on Squier Wiki with more details. It's classified as part of the Vintage Modified series here, if it isn't a special limited run that is.

    Can you get a full picture of the front of the headstock?

    It's a Tele Custom. I have the Squier by Fender Telecaster Deluxe. Strat neck on the same body.
