The legendary Stratocaster guitar has graced the hands of some of the biggest names in music for decades, becoming symbolic with rock music. The Squier Classic Vibe 70s Stratocaster HSS Left-Handed in Black combines vintage aesthetic with modern features to make a guitar that emanates style and tone in equal measure.
Vintage for the masses
The solid Poplar body is finished off in classic Clapton-style Black and is protected by a slender layer of Gloss Polyurethane, preserving it for a long as possible and allowing it to age gracefully. The Poplar provides a deeply resounding character with emphasis on the upper-midrange. Poplar is a balanced tonewood that gives you full-bodied tone and clarity of sound. Coupled with the distinctive Strat double-cutaway the Classic Vibe 70s sounds immense with great upper fret access.
Fitted to the body is a Maple neck joined with a Maple fingerboard. This classic combination gives you a sharp and snappy tonality that's as equally suited to blues licks as it is to hard rock riffing. The comfortable 'C' shape profile makes this neck incredibly easy to glide along, whilst the Tinted Gloss Urethane finish ensures that playing feel is consistently smooth. 21 Narrow Tall frets coupled with Black Dot fret markers ensure you never lose your way. A large-style Strat headstock with 70s-inspired markings gives even more vibe to this classic style Squier Strat.
Rock Steady Hardware
The three Fender-designed Alnico pickups give you an impressive range, from sparkling, shimmering cleans to lush and warm lead tones, with a humbucker in the bridge position you get extra grunt that's great for heavier styles. The 5-way selector, with master volume and two tone control knobs, allows you to cut pretty much any sound from this guitar with a little tweaking, leaving you to concentrate on your playing. A vintage-style Tremolo system lets you add expression and texture to your sound with raises, dips and flutters. Coupled with a 6-Saddle bridge and Vintage-Style tuning machines you can be assured of rock-solid tuning stability whether on stage, in the studio, or practising at home.
The Squier Classic Vibe 70s Stratocaster HSS Left-Handed plays, sounds and looks amazing giving you vintage demeanour with modern playability at a price range that won't break the bank.
