The Squier® Standard Stratocaster® is a great playing guitar with a traditional vibe, slick style and modern feel. Player-friendly features like a 22-fret fingerboard and a slimmer neck make for smoother playing and choke-free bends. Alnico single-coil pickups provide plenty of punchy, rocking power.
What a great playing Squier! A hand friendly C Shaped neck is toped with a 9.5" fretboard radius and 22 medium jumbo frets on an Indian Laurel Fingerboard. Never before have Squier's been this playable! Add a Large Late 60's headstock to boot and you have the coolest $250 guitar that money can buy!
A trio of Alnico single coil pickups are installed with a Master Volume control and two tone controls. A 5 way switch allows for 5 different tonal combinations right off the bat, all of which are quintessential. This isn't just a cheap imitation of a Strat it IS a Strat in tone, looks and playability.
A beautiful Cherry Sunburst sits over an Agathis body which is nice and light weight at just 7 lbs 9 oz. The Burst looks great, amplified by a full gloss and a mint green pickguard, this is a slick looking guitar with a classic vibe.
