A Vintage-looking, Custom-sounding Value!

The Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster is a solidbody electric guitar that gives you the classic style of a vintage Strat, with a few different features thrown in to give it that special personalized look and feel. The enduring look and shape of a classic guitar are evident in the Vintage Modified Strat, but the addition of hotter Duncan Designed pickups, a rosewood fretboard, and chrome hardware gives it the vibe, playability, and tone of a personally modified instrument. Vintage vibe meets customized cool in the agile and affordable Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster!

Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • The timeless appeal of the Stratocaster
  • Vintage touches
The timeless appeal of the Stratocaster

The Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster sports a basswood body, a maple neck, and a 9.5" radius rosewood fretboard. The traditional maple neck is tinted to resemble a vintage Strat neck. The long-familiar Strat tone is managed with a trio of Duncan Designed single-coil pickups for clear, bright Strat tones with the perfect amount of sustain. A vintage-style synchronized tremolo rounds out the feature set.

Vintage touches

From top to bottom, the Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster features vintage touches that make this guitar feel like an old friend from the past. It's got a '70s-style headstock - larger than the modern style - and vintage-style hardware looks period-correct, too. The tinted maple neck, the parchment dot inlays, and the aged white pickup covers all add to the vintage vibe.

Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Classic Stratocaster design with vintage-style appointments
  • 3-tone sunburst
  • Tinted maple neck looks carefully aged
  • Large '70s-style headstock
  • Trio of Duncan Designed single-coil pickups for true Strat tones
  • Great-looking chrome hardware

Love it!

I bought mine used without a scratch on it with plans to install a set of Tex-Mex pickups I'd bought. After playing it as it was, I had a very difficult time deciding to replace the Duncan designed pickups! But that's what I bought it for, and I added a black pickguard so that it now looks just like the SRV signature model. But those Duncan designed pickups are definitely going in my Squire Standard!

Best bang for the buck!!!:)

I was just looking for a cheap strat that I could do a little recording with, and wouldn't be afraid to take to an occasional outing. This thing surpassed all of my expectations! For the price point I truly don't think you can do better...no it's not an american strat, but it is sweet! The fit, and finish are top rate, and the pickups sound good enough not to change. My favorite thing about this beast is the neck...it just feels right in my hands...maybe it's just me, but it's one of the best neck profiles i've ever felt. Thanks again to Nate Edwards, and the sweetwater staff...for yet another satisfying purchase!!!:)

Excellent Value

I own several Fender Stratocasters both MIA and MIM. I purchased this Squier VM Strat with the intent of modding it. However I am so pleased with it I decided to leave it stock. The finish is excellent, I love the vintage tint neck, and the Duncan designed pick- ups which are very bright. The quality between the higher end Squier guitars and their Fender siblings is very close. I was so pleased with this guitar I also purchased a 70's Vintage Modified Strat in black and maple.
