Build and features
We’ve already reviewed and admired the Squier Telecaster Custom II (as have you - check out your list of the best electric guitars under £300) and we can happily report that it’s still great - the neck is a nice ‘C’-shape, the finishing is top-notch and the vintage/modern aesthetic is spot-on. We’ve found these Vintage Modified Squiers to be consistently well-built, great sounding guitars.
The Custom II has been tweaked slightly, though. We have a pair of Duncan Designed P-90-style pickups, with Deluxe-style independent tone and volume controls and a large Tele Deluxe-like scratchplate.
Other specs include a vintage Fender 184mm (7.25-inch) radius ’board and 648mm (25.5- inch) scale-length. Regular Tele players may or may not be pleased to see a six-saddle bridge that gives more accurate intonation than the vintage-style three-saddle unit.
