If you asked a member of the public to draw an electric guitar the chances are they would try to hash out what they remember of the classic strat body. That's how ingrained the strat body design is in the subconscious of all of us. The Start had to wait for its day in the sun but once that day came it dominated for six decades and is now the byword for that two offset horned carved top body shape. From Hank Marvin and Jimi Hendrix to Nile Rodgers and Steve Vai have played or still play this most versatile of instruments. The neck pickup has the most distinctive guitar sound in rock and roll and this Squier Classic Vibe has all the elements required to get that tone but at a fraction of the cost.

Pining for classic sound

It is an unusual and bold move to use Nato as the body wood and goes to show how far Fender has come in developing the instrument. Nato is a form of Mahogany and is regularly used for electrics and provides natural resonance and good sustain. The pickups are freer to output the natural characteristics of the guitar when married to a Nato body. The one-piece maple neck and fingerboard are a Fender staple and the hard maple provides a searing tone. The gloss finish to the body and headstock give the classic vibe a modern look.

Alnico pickups

The three Alnico pickups give the Classic Vibe a versatility not found in many guitars from driving tones in the bridge to funky clean in the middle and the distinctive bubbly tone at the neck pickup the pickups have a high output sound. Set in the classic Fender formation where the bridge pickup is offset the Classic Vibe is a guitar for all seasons.

Vintage tremolo

The hardware is kept authentically vintage with a vintage style 50s tremolo ideal for subtle vibrato. The tuners are Fender classic tuners with a history and reputation for strong accurate tuning. The nut is pure bone and adds to the tuning stability. The bridge has adjustable saddles for customising string height or correcting intonation.

Good Vibrations

It's not hard to get excitations about a well built, cost-efficient Squier Strat. They have been a versatile tool in the hands of some notable players such as Simon Neil (Biffy Clyro) and Jeff Healy (Jeff Healy band). They have a searing tone and often share the same components as there much more expensive Fender counterparts. Whether you are a beginner looking for a first or upgraded electric guitar or a more experienced player looking to add a versatile weapon to your arsenal the Squier Classic Vibe is ideal, well priced and exquisitely finished at an amazing price.
