    I have always loved the look of these tele's but never puled the trigger. I have been browsing the web in the few past days and have found an ad from a shop stating that the guitar was new.
    They went out of production so I couldn't understand why they put it this way. Long story short, I have called the shop this morning and the guy told me that they simply forgot (better: lost) this Squier in a hidden corner of the shop :eek::eek:

    They didn't even know what it is worth, they actually had to look for the old invoice and calculate a selling price. I asked him if he could weigh the tele for me and when I called the shop back I discovered that this little Squier weighs in at about 2.850 kg. The seller also confirmed that the neck is quite substantial ("not Les Paul 59", he said, "but you really feel it in your hand).

    Do I really need to say that I bought it immediately? :cool::D

    The guitar should be here before the weekend, can't wait!
    Will post pics when I get it.

    I know that - despite the overall quality - this telecaster can benefit from a little help such as a new nut, maybe electronics etc. I will play it a little and after I will discuss it with my tech.
    I am so happy, always dug this way cool guitars!

    Post yours and show us them with pride!

    Cheers.

    Congrats, I bought a black one with p90's new back in 2009? The neck was a very pale medium c but I sold it due to not liking the sharp fret ends and feel of the neck. If I could go back I would have worked on the neck or sold the neck and replaced it with my preferred Allparts neck. I really like the pickups, the hardware, pickguard and knobs etc were pretty low quality that would be worth considering upgrading down the track.

    In hindsight they were a bargain for what they cost at the time. I sold mine on ebay after 6 months for what I paid for it new in store.

    When properly set up, including any work the existing nut needs, the Custom II needs nothing else to be a good player. All the electronics are fine, as-is, and changing them won’t make the guitar sound or play differently. The neck is substantial, compared to most Squier models, and the Duncan Designed P-90s sound good.

    Sweet. Grabbing a NOS, 6.3-pound Squier Custom II was a real coup! Congrats, mimmo!

    Well done. They're very nice guitars and the neck is really good. I've had a couple and wish I'd keep them.

    My 2008 is bone stock and downright dirty from overplay. The only thing that will need eventually “modding” are the scratchy pots. They’re cheap, but still functioning just fine, albeit slightly crackly. What a great guitar- congrats!

    I like it when I have to open another window just to see which guitar we're speaking of. ;)

    These are sharp.

    I had the chance to buy that one when an audio/music store I worked for was closing. Regrets? I has them.

    Had it in black. Started thinking it was “surplus to my needs” despite how awesome it was, at the same time as I was jonesing for something else, and had a friend telling me how much he liked it. He still has it. I don’t. I don’t have the guitar it helped pay for, either. He wins.

    Enjoy that Custom II, it’s one of Squier’s best!
