Squier Classic Vibe '60s Stratocaster, Lake Placid Blue
Squier Classic Vibe '60s Stratocaster, Lake Placid Blue Overview.
A tribute to the 1960s evolution of the Strat®, the Classic Vibe ‘60s Stratocaster creates incredible tone courtesy of a trio of Fender-Designed alnico single-coil pickups. Player-friendly features include a slim, comfortable “C”-shaped neck profile with an easy-playing 9.5”-radius fingerboard and narrow-tall frets, as well as a vintage-style tremolo system for expressive string bending effects. This throwback Squier model also features 1960s-inspired headstock markings, rich-looking nickel-plated hardware and a slick vintage-tint gloss neck finish for an old-school vibe.

Great beginner guitar in a really nice colour
Really great instrument for the price. Love the colour although the blue is slightly lighter in real life than it is in the photographs. Would highly recommend.
Absolutely love this guitar, I had seen a number of Youtube reviews about the Squire Vibe 50's, 60's and 70's, I opted for the 60's Strat, Lake Placid Blue and it really doesn't disappoint, for the money (a little over £300.00 including the delivery), you would have to go a long way to get better value for money. Highly recommend it.
Very, very good quality / price ratio. I am very pleased, plays like a dream.
Bang for your buck. What else do you need a Strat to do if you’re into noodling about at home?! Probably gigable too...
