I've been circulating this report on the newest Classic Vibe offerings across all relevant threads… Just last weekend, I picked up a brand-new Squier Classic Vibe '70s Jazz, one of the new generations built in their Indonesia factory. In a word…fantastic! Specifically, I grabbed one in a natural finish with a bound & blocked maple neck. Here's the iron-sights… The fit and finish is great. I tried slipping a single post-it note into the neck pocket. On one side, it only made it halfway in and on the other, it couldn't even gain entry. The frets are pretty good. They could use a microscopic waving of a file on a few of the ends, but it doesn't interfere with playing. Call it 9 out of 10. Interesting thing about these new CV's, the binding does not cover the fret ends. Personally, I have no beef with that, I'm just reporting. The body's grain is very nice. From the front, it almost appears to be a single piece of soft maple. Looking at the back, it's definitely a two-piece body, but the matching was still nicely done. The neck is also a two-piece. The back has an interesting grain, but the fretboard has this amazingly beautiful-but-subtle quilted look. The finish has a slightly amber, vintage tint. Sonically, it's super-sweet. Deep lows, but with the growl you expect from Jazz pickups. Plus, it's quiet as all hell when both pups are dialed up to 100%. I could see FMIC making damn sure the rollout of their newest Classic Vibes are held to very high quality control standards. If that is the case, I hope they maintain it for years to come, 'cuz this one's a beauty. …and some pictures I snapped earlier today! It's kinda hard to make out, both due to the lighting and the slight amber tint to the finish, but this model's Squier logo has a gold border.
