These are pretty good guitars certainly better than the bullet and affinity, but I have compared them with the standard strat and the classic vibe is not a better guitar. it is the best Squire label guitar. The tuners, neck, pup's and electronics on my MIM are all better, but that does not diminish the good quality of the Classic vintage. I must say that I have found the G & L guitars very high quality compared to all strat like guitars and I would choose a G & L over these guitars, these are competitive.
The Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s is an electric guitar that leaves no doubt as to its true Fender identity. With its cool finishes on an alder body and 21-fret vintage tint gloss maple neck, this beauty definitely has that '50s vibe. But you also get the modern playability of a 9.5" radius neck and medium jumbo frets. The tone is unmistakable as well, with a custom set of AlNiCo 3 single-coil pickups. This Squier guitar's tone is clear and bright with terrific sustain even in crunch mode! Custom-staggered pole pieces provide improved string-to-string balance.

Bray Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings (09 - 42) Perfect For Fender, Gibson, Ibanez, Yamaha & Squier Electric Guitars - Includes Vinyl Sticker
This is a very cool guitar. It looks great and the Duncan pickups sound really good. The neck on this guitar is feels great. The only problem is the bridge rattle and buzz. I order a new bridge it is an easy drop in and it fixes the problem. The extra cost for a new bridge is why I gave this Mustang 4 stars instead of 5. I love Squier guitars and I think this is another winner.
