Anyone have any experience with them? I'm looking at the surf strat. Just wanted some opinions on them. Thanks.
Just ordered a surf green VM Surf Strat. For $263 (15% off @ GC), I figured why not? Looks cool and sounded decent in the clips I've heard. Should be here near the end of the week. I've already thought about swapping the neck for a maple one and upgrading the bridge and pots. I'm hoping the lipstick tubes are decent enough.
If you can, please post your impressions. Im quite curious about this new Squier surf strat. Id like to try out some lipstick pickups. Ive got a strat that I could put some lipsticks in. Not sure which ones to try (Duncan? GFS?). If I were to get the Duncans, thats 3 x $70 each = $210. Then again, this new Squier is only $300. Plus it comes in the very cool surf green color.
Because of this new surf strat Ive been reading around about the Vintage Modified Squier series. General impressions seem to be that they are just OK, not super. Whereas the Classic Vibe series seems to be universally loved.
I had the Tele Thinline...loved it. I did put Texas Specials in it. One of the nicest playing guitars I've had.
I just played a couple of the Vintage Modified Telecaster Specials with the Jazzmaster neck and pickup, and I have to say that they're definitely on-par with the Classic Vibe models.
