When Squier releases baritone guitars, guitarists tend to get a little… excited. Maybe it’s because a baritone is that perfect ‘other’ electric – ideal for laying thicc overdubs or the occasional doom track – but previous offerings have attracted huge cult followings, not least the Vintage Modified Baritone Jazzmaster, which at one point was selling upwards of $2,000 on the used market.

All of which explains why we’re stoked that Fender is releasing a new Squier baritone for 2022, the Classic Vibe Baritone Custom Telecaster.
