Contrary to popular belief, electric guitars are an instrument that requires you to master two very different things. One is, of course, the playing technique, but the other is utilizing the hardware of that guitar and that of the amplifier in order to dial in a great tone.
Often imitated but never matched, the Strat is a classic American guitar design. Why buy a no-name knock-off when Squier offers a real Stratocaster, designed and backed by Fender? From its look and feel, to the quality of its components, these are guitars that value-conscious musicians have been waiting for!
The Squier Standard Stratocaster plays great with a traditional vibe and modern feel. Recently upgraded throughout, these classics boast player-friendly features like the 22-fret fingerboard and a slimmer neck for easier playing and choke-free bends. Plus, Alnico single-coil pickups!
The die-cast tuners are lifetime-lubricated for years of trouble-free service and tuning stability. A twin-pivot bridge with satin-anodized saddles provides smooth tremolo action.
