    Arrived today and I'm stoked. Just pulled it out of the box screwed in the tremolo arm and washed my hands and had a bit of a play. Very nice indeed. The neck feels like coming home and the factory setup is excellent.
    I'll check to make sure all of the electrics work okay but given their all good I'm one happy camper.
    First time I've seen Antique Burst in real life and I really like it.
    Planning to swap the pickups for a set of SD Antiquity Texas Hot that are in my Bullet and upgrade the pots and switches and change around the tone wiring.
    Can't believe how good these Squiers are.

    she sure is a beauty - always liked that unique Squier "Antique Burst"! HNGD! :)

    The Standards have some nice alnico on board already -- no real need to swap those (unless you dig tinkering - like me!)

    Yeah I like it. I was really not keen on getting another Burst finish but this one is different. As far as I know it's only available on this model too. I can't find it on any others in the Fender or Squier range. (Apart from the equivalent Squier Standard Tele)

    Lovely! I have an antique burst Strat which is stock at the moment, but will soon(ish) be getting a black loaded pick guard from a standard fat Strat.

    HNGD! I’ve never seen that finish in person, but it sure looks good in the pictures. I think the black guard would look awesome!

    This isn't a good picture, but it's the only one I have without digging it out of the closet.

    Congrats! That is a beautiful finish.

    Yes! Give those pickups a chance. I bought a Squier Standard Tele, intending to put in a set of Rose pickups, but the stock ones are so sweet that I left them in.

  19. This must be NOS as I believe the Standard line was dropped. Maybe I'm mistaken. o_O
    Nice Standard. I had two, but sold the narrow neck one. Kept the 42 mm maple one piece.


    Cheers, Barrie.
