I bought one of these on the SDOTD a while back. I actually prefer my Classic Vibe Squier Teles, but it is a quality instrument. Except for one thing. It refuses to play cowboy chords. I have messed with the intonation and got it right on. And if I play barre chords it's fine. But try and play something with some open strings and it just has that sound that makes it sound horrible. I saw somebody had the same issue with the same guitar. He said the problem was the location of the nut, or the fact that it was leaning. Someone on that forum recommending he set the intonation using the 1st and 13th frets. Then if the 1st fret is sharp or flat, the nut is just in the wrong spot. I have had this kind of issue with a nut that wasn't slotted properly. I haven't checked that yet. It had some fret creep, so I fixed that and played it for a while, and I remembered it had this issue. I can't stand a guitar that won't play chords in tune.
