    Got this 2008 Squier Telecaster Custom from a local shop .

    I've had it on layaway for a few weeks and dropped by yesterday and brought her home

    I opened her up for inspection last night and everything was great . Just had to snug up the jack a bit . It had what feels like new strings on it ,so I put them back. Easy breezy with the Sperzel lockers that are on it.

    Everything is factory except the tuners.

    When I polished the frets I couldn't find any wear at all on them. I honestly don't think it's been played much at all . The action was high and the intonation was way off. I figure someone just goofed around with it ,then just put it in the bag til they needed cash , then sold it to the shop , or traded it.

    She plays easy and has a fantastic 22 fret neck with the satin finish. It's just a tad chunky ,but I'm cool with that .

    The humbuckers are sweet on this thing too. The tones are just schweeeeeeeat !

    Is that like lp wireing? Can the p/u's be split?

    That looks killer. Cheers, Barrie.

    The 'banana' colour was only used on the Custom II, with P90's, which is one of the best sounding squiers around, IMHO

    But I like them both, they are fantastic. And yes, the neck has a great feel to it.

    Congrats!

    Man, HNTD! That's a beaut! I've always wanted to try one of these, but as of yet, the only Teles I've played have had single coils... I'm not a L.P. kinda guy, but I need a guitar that'll do heavier stuff too... Maybe this'd be the ticket... Congrats!

    Yes . It's pretty much like having an LP tonewise ,but you can get twang in there too :0)
    It's a 3 way switch and no pop up tone knobs.


    My other Tele is single coils ,so this one is definitely a different experience. It will definitely do the heavy lifting ;) .. The neck is fantastic and it's what convinced me to get her. The round edges on the body make it very comfy to play as well .

    I'm over my limit on Tele's right now. I've got a Fender Player Special, a Squier Std. a Monoprice green monster and one that I built from scratch using an unfinished body and a MightyMite neck. However, looks like you got yourself a humdinger there. I would probably go weak in the knees if I came across one like that at the right price.
