You can't beat this pickup configuration

For a perfect combination of classic Strat tone and modern output, Fender outfitted the Sweetwater Mod Squad '62 Stratocaster with a Seymour Duncan TB-4 JB humbucker in the bridge position and Fender Custom Shop '60s Strat pickup in the middle and neck. You get all of the quack and high-end sparkle the Strat has become famous for since it first appeared in 1954, plus the robust signal strength you need for different styles of music. The controls of the Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Mod Squad '62 Stratocaster feature a single volume control that doubles as a coil-tap switch and dual tone controls.

Alder body with a nitrocellulose lacquer finish

This Sweetwater Mod Squad Stratocaster is a classy looking guitar thanks to the premium alder body in a rich color. To enhance the look and allow the body to more freely resonate, Fender uses a special "thin" nitrocellulose lacquer finish on this guitar. The perfect complement comes in the form of a color-appropriate pickguard and a matching headstock.

Fender Custom Shop precision and quality

Every detail on the Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Mod Squad '62 Stratocaster reminds you of the historic lineage of the Stratocaster, from the lacquer finish to the vintage hardware. But this Fender Custom Shop Strat isn't just built for looks - the neck of the Mod Squad '62 Stratocaster is made from maple for strength and maximum vibration, and the alder for the body was hand-selected for maximum quality.

Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Mod Squad '62 Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Killer Vintage looks with modern hardware
