2014 marks the diamond jubilee of the Stratocaster, but you'll strike pure gold when you get your hands on Squier's 60th Anniversary Classic Vibe '50s Stratocaster. The instrument celebrates six decades of the world's greatest electric guitar with a truly gilded model featuring an Aztec Gold gloss finish and gold hardware.
Other features include a maple neck with a comfortable "modern C" profile, 9.5"-radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets, three custom vintage-style single-coil Stratocaster pickups with five-way switching, three-ply parchment pickguard, vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge with six saddles, and vintage-style tuners.

I know it may sound odd but this Strat is a true Strat. Often times a Strat won't capture the real tone and feeling that a stratocaster should have however this one is spot on. In a blind fold test I would assume this was a fender labeled guitar as in no way does it feel that the quality or design has been cut back. The design may not be appealing to all, however I love the gold color scheme of this thing. Overall the best way to describe this guitar is to say it's a true stratocaster all the way through.

I bought a Classic Vibe 50's the week they first arrived in stores and immediately like the feel of the neck, playability and overall quality of the instrument.. Last year I decided to upgrade and bought a Classic Players 50's Stratocaster in burst and sold the CV. I quickly missed the easier profile of the CV and didn't find the pu's appreciably better and so rather than fight with the guitar, I traded the players in and bought this 60th anniversary CV and I'm once again more than impressed with the guitar and its value for money spent. I love the neck on these guitars and the Aztec gold is just the right kind of tacky. All in all, they might have spent a bit more time on this guitar because of the 60th anniversary association as it was perfectly set up right out of the box with absolutely no finish flaws or problems with the fit and trim. Squier's can be hit or miss but this one is definitely a hit. Should have left well enough alone and kept the first one!

I've been playing top-line guitars for over 55 years including 5 Strats before there was ever "Americans" and "Mexicans" and I have to tell you, this specific instrument beats every single guitar I've ever owned. Fender/Squier has really nailed this guitar - it's perfect. Everything about it is top quality. It plays like a hot knife through butter and can be setup any way you'd like without compromise.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for such an incredible quality guitar at such an unbelievably low price for the value. I compare it as equal to if not better than a full priced "American" Strat.
