New Squier Artist Series Deryck Whibley Telecaster

Squire has a new Artist Series model, the Deryck Whibley Telecaster. For those who don't know (and I didn't) Whibley is the leader of Juno-winning Canadian punk-pop trio Sum 41. Okay, so I know Sum 41, my little sister is a fan, just not any of their members. I'm not completely out of touch afterall.

I have a pet hate of guitars with the following graphics: The letter X, A red hospital +, and the anarchy A.

Squire says “His new Squier signature model nails the vibe of a classic ’70s Fender Telecaster Deluxe model, with features including Whibley’s signature red X graphics, a single ferocious Duncan Designed humbucking pickup and retro-cool 'blackface' amp control knobs.”

    one problem of this dangerous stuff is the pick-guard that looks easily scratched for the color is black.This guitar had been hanging on for years in the ‘guitar shop’ until I took it out.
    Most people choose ibanez or fender just because they think squire has bad quality, but anyone who has heard the sound will change their opinions. I think Tom delonge’s guitar sounds similar to this guitar.
    I really love it. I play it almost everyday, yeahhhhhhh.

    this is a great guitar i baught it like almost a year ago when it first came out at sam ash music store it has ben a great guitar for me i have had no problems with anything my dials are still fine and every thing sounds great i like the x’s i think they give it its own style if you dont like them then dont buy it no ones making but i give it a 10

    1. Yes, his does have a neck

      Yes, his does have a neck pickup, but its not wired. He disconnected it. So since he only uses one pickup, there would be only the one on his signature. But this is a very good guitar, i have the black one. It sounds great, especially for punk/rock/metal, which is what deryck plays. It also looks AWESOME. Those red Xs are sweet. This is a very unique guitar. Yes its a Squier, but the thing that usually sucks about Squier is the pickups. Theyre usually trash. But this is a specially designed Duncan pickup, Which Deryck helped make. Its a sound he likes and uses, so if youre into his kind of music, then this is an awesome guitar for you to have!! 😀
