Everything that makes a Strat a Strat
Like many Strats that have come before, the Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '60s sports an alder body with a 3-color sunburst finish. The traditional maple neck is tinted to resemble a vintage Strat neck with a rosewood fingerboard. The long-familiar Strat tone is managed with a trio of single-coil pickups powered by Alnico V magnets for biting, aggressive tones with a strong midrange presence. A vintage-style synchronized tremolo rounds out the feature set.

Unique touches
Squier's Classic Vibe Stratocaster '60s 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 with a rosewood fingerboard. Aged plastic parts lend a vintage vibe to the aesthetics, and white dot position markers run the length of the neck.

Awesome Strat

Plays brilliantly. The pickups sound more like old Strat pickups than just about any expensive aftermarket pickups I've tried. A really nice 60s-style Strat.
5/5

awsome

I Have owned ALOT of guitars and Strats in particular and this little Stratocaster has build quality that rivals its Made in Mexico cousins! The amber gloss tint on the maple neck is absolutely gorgeous, many i have seen have subtle but visable flame in the maple, the alder body is very light weight with beautiful woodgrain shot in a vintage 3 tone sunburst (on 60's model) and the vintage style fender tuners really top it off! There are a few concerns though, as with any instrument.. The electronics are rather cheap with dime sized pots and thin sounding pickups on any setting, especially settings with moderate overdrive where the sound tends to become shrill and muddy even with boutique quality tube amplifiers. If the electronics are swapped out for quarter sized pots and your favorite single coils this guitar is a dead knockout in value! With very mild modifications this axe will be your go to instrument for years to come! Guaranteed! You will never put it down! My Gibson SG Standard had taken a back seat to this little beauty! Kudos Squier! I think you have gotten it right!

Amazing guitar!

This is one fantastic guitar! The pick-ups are awesome, qulity is unbeleivable and sound is crystal clear! DO NOT be fooled by the Squier name because the quality is far beyond it's price. I think this Stratocaster is better then any guitar that is twice or triple the price of this guitar. If I were you, BUY THIS GUITAR!

where the h3ll did this guitar come from?

Played on last weekend. Cant wait to own one. I sold all my gear about a year and a half ago and have been kicking myself for it. The sales rep suggested this axe and I wont even consider another. Ive played for over 20 years and worked for a few years at a world reknown vintage string instruments store, have played strats that were priced at over five thousand bucks. I will never pay that much for a strat as long as fender keeps putting out guitars such as this. My styles range from bluesy to hard core metal. This axe handled everyting (as far as my taste goes)!!! I cant believe they are under four hundred bones. now if only I can find an affordable orginal Plexi.
