PRESS RELEASE: Squier is proud to introduce three new guitars for 2010 - two exciting new versions of classic Telecaster models and a practical, no-frills Stratocaster model with the roar of a humbucking pickup. All deliver great Squier look, sound, feel and value.

The two latest additions to the award-winning and best-selling Classic Vibe series - the Classic Vibe Telecaster Custom and Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline guitars - are based on a pair of classic Telecaster designs from the 1960s that were prized among rock, blues, country and jazz players alike.

The Classic Vibe Telecaster Custom is a beautiful Three-color Sunburst model with a double-bound alder body, vintage-tint gloss maple neck with 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard and 21 medium jumbo frets, custom alnico V single-coil pickups, mint-green pickguard, three-saddle bridge with threaded saddles and vintage-style tuners.

The Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline boasts a classic semi-hollow design in a rich natural-finish mahogany body with an f-hole and white pearloid pickguard. Other features include a gloss maple neck with 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard and 21 medium jumbo frets, custom alnico V single-coil pickups, three-saddle bridge and vintage-style tuners.

Squier's new Bullet Strat with Tremolo HSSis a simple, practical and affordable guitar designed for students and beginners, with classic styling that includes a slim body profile, maple neck with 21-fret rosewood fingerboard, single-coil neck and middle pickups, humbucking bridge pickup, five-way switching and synchronous tremolo.
