Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster 60's Wins MIA Award for Best Guitar Under £600!
And the Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '60s costs under £250, which means it beat much more expensive guitars - Now that's value-for-money!
The new Squier Classic Vibe series is, bay far, the best and most exciting releases from Squier in years. So good, in fact, that it gives Fender a run for their money - at very least Fender's Mexican guitars, no doubt about that.
If in the past, Squier was more associated as a "student" or "starter" brand - which it still does immensely well, as proven by the Bullet Series - in 2009 Squier took a brave step and released some truly great guitars that any pro on a budget (or not!) would be proud to use. Each Squier Classic Vibe guitar conjures vintage cool, and reflects that simultaneous commitment to excellence, value and "vibe".
Mirroring classic Fender designs, the "Classic Vibe" offerings are not intended to be era or vintage correct, but rather try - and achieve - to impart with the "vibe" of classic Fender designs, with distinctive features that add up to classic looking instruments with great sound, vintage looks and unbeatable value - pure Classic Vibe!
The MIA Award 2009 that went to the Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster 60s, voted "Best Guitar Under £600" crowned this great year for Fender. And, let's be frank - in the vast under-£600 bracket there's a LOT of great instruments! Think Vintage V100 Lemon Drop, Epiphone Les Paul Custom and Epiphone Black Beauty, Brian May Red Special, Gibson Melody Maker...hell, even Fender Standard models such as Fender Standard Stratocaster and Fender Jaguar!!!
This is the market the Squier Classic Vibe is in for - the "proper" guitarists who know what's really good! If you're looking for a really great guitar that offers unbeatable value for money...well, think Squier Classic Vibe!
