IT FUCKING SUCKS
IT FUCKING SUCKS

The fret ends feel like they're coming off - I can stick a pick between the fret end and the board. The pole pieces' locations have absolutely nothing to do with the locations of the strings. The nut is terrible and everything buzzes when played open. The neck pickup sounds like absolute trash.

My disappointment is immeasurable. I'm sending it back for a refund, not a replacement.

EDIT: Classic Vibe, not Custom Vibe. ty nick

Y'all bastards lied to me. Squier custom vibe guitars were supposed to be the best guitars ever manufactured, but this is the worst guitar I've played in 10 years.

That’s cause you bought a Custom Vibe instead of a Classic Vibe.

This is really disappointing because I've always stood by and recommended Classic Vibes. Hopefully a one-off and not an overall decline in quality for the range.

My Thinline is fine. Was a bit buzzy at first but I bought it from actual guitar shop and got them to fix that shit beforehand.

Did the CV production move from China to Indonesia?

I've heard the quality dipped when they merged the VM and CV lines, but they look better all around. but I've also heard they're the best guitars you can buy without the fender decal at their price range. I always try to try before I buy.

prolly just got a stinker tho, it happens, sucks to hear, I was eyeing those up too.

I expect that for 450 S's, I get a guitar where I can't use the frets as pickholders.


And I don't know if you guys noticed but there's a global pandemic rn that makes going to guitar stores kind of a pain.

You really think Jeef Bezus is going to take a $300 guitar out of the box and do a pre-shipment inspection?

Those were Fender iirc. This was the Squier CV black on black one.
