FDP Forum / The Squier Forum / So who has the Squier 72 Vintage Tele?

Contributing Member

Pueblo, Co

Okay, I took the sticker off....

Played one at GC yesterday and really like the neck shape, I have really started enjoying the 50's Tele neck feel and that is what I determined this one to be near exact to. The polyurethane finish really seems a bit too much though.

It almost felt like it was imobilizing my hand...

The other one I like was the Mascis Jazz Master, really impressed with this Squier too, a liteny of tone options and a great feel. I did not get to play with the tremolo tho. WHat do these trems feel like compared to a strat trem?

I have been very happy with mine. I have no issues with the poly finish on the neck, myself. I have several guitars with the poly finish so I guess I'm use to it.

The only issue I have is the the vintage style tuner on the high E string. The string keep slipping out trying to tune the guitar up to pitch. My work around was to just string it the way I normally do with my other guitars. That seem to work for me.

The JM/Jag trem is similar to a Bigsby or Kahler (not as extreme on the latter, assuming one has the Kahler set fairly tight, it's very, very close to a JM).

You won't be doing epic divebombs but it excels at warbles and subtle control.

Hey froggy,
Sorry if I'm telling you something you already know but, if you hit the backside of that neck with 3M Scotch Brite pad (green one) you can turn it into a satin finish in 2 minutes.

Go with a light pressure and frequently check the feel until you get it to where you like it.

Done this on a few necks with great success.

Oh, and mask off before the headstock to your desired point first. this prevents you from over-running onto the back of the headstock.
