Everything that makes a Strat a Strat

Like many Strats that have come before, the Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s sports an alder body with a period- correct 2-color sunburst finish. The traditional maple neck is tinted to resemble a vintage Strat neck with a maple fingerboard. The long-familiar Strat tone is managed with a trio of single-coil pickups powered by alnico III magnets for clear, bright Strat tones with the perfect amount of sustain. A vintage-style synchronized tremolo rounds out the feature set.

Unique touches

Squier's Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s is also equipped with the features modern players demand. The maple neck is loaded with player-favorite medium-jumbo frets on a modern 9.5" radius neck. Aged plastic parts lend a vintage vibe to the aesthetics, and black dot position markers run the length of the neck.
