Where are Squier Classic Vibe guitars made?
Up until at least 2022, Classic Vibe guitars were usually made in either Indonesia or China.
Which is the best Classic Vibe guitar?
This is a near impossible question to answer as there is a huge range of Classic Vibe instruments. Do you prefer Strat or Tele? How do you like your guitar / bass to look? Which eras ('50s / '60s / '70s) resonate with you most?
Which is better, Squier Classic Vibe or Fender Player?
Squier Classic Vibe guitars are made in China and Indonesia, while Fender Player guitars are made in Mexico, with arguably improved construction methods. Classic Vibe guitars also have a gloss C-shaped neck and narrow high frets, while Fender Player guitars have a satin modern C-shaped neck and medium jumbo frets.
The Squier Classic Vibe series necks feel slimmer compared to the Fender Player series, and the narrow tall frets on the Classic Vibe can make it difficult to play up and down the neck, while the medium jumbo frets featured in the Player series make it easier to hold chords.
The Fender Player series also has several important enhancements, such as better pickups and bridge construction, although the nut material is plastic, while the Classic Vibe nut is made of bone.
Needless to say, it's all very much a matter of personal preference!
