As part of their Contemporary range of models, the Squier Standard Stratocaster HH Electric Guitar delivers sophisticated style, comfortable playability, and a powerful tonal charge. For all the rockers who like to play loud, this is the Strat for you. Thanks to the pair of humbuckers in this active dream machine, you're guaranteed to be heard - loud and clear!
Classic Strat Style
Since its release back in the early 1950s, the Stratocaster has become a hallowed icon that has helped to guide the evolution of music across the decades. From Jazz to Heavy Metal, no genre has gone untouched by the Strat's influence. With its smooth, contours crafted out of sublime alder, the Strat has the enviable properties of being very light in weight, easy to wield, and produces an energetic yet balanced tonality. The model has been completed in a sleek finish, which is complemented by a 3-ply pickguard. In order to preserve the finish, a gentle coating of matte polyester envelopes the body, offering protection against premature damage.
Married to the body is a slender maple neck that is shaped to the very comfortable fast-playing slim "C" profile. Paired with the neck is a responsive rosewood fingerboard that carries 22 medium-jumbo frets. The white dot position inlays add a stylish navigational aid, whilst the delicately shaped 12" radius makes it a joy to perform on. The neck and fingerboard combination works together perfectly, creating a crisp and articulate character that cuts through the power produced by the humbuckers. The back of the neck has been treated to a coating of satin urethane, which helps to prevent the neck from feeling sticky or tacky during performances.
The Contemporary Strat HH is equipped with a pair of Squier active ceramic humbucking pickups, which are fitted in the neck and bridge positions. If you're looking for a Strat that can execute smooth warmth in the cleans, and can quickly produce a ferocious bite when tackling high-gain musical styles - rock and metal -, then this model is the one for you. As well as a 3-way pickup selector switch that allows you to access each pickup individually - or both together -, Squier has included simple master tone and volume controls.
Floyd Rose Bridge
A superb Floyd Rose dual locking tremolo system has been fitted, which enables you to infuse your performances with extreme vibrato - as well as maintaining intonation accurately. The standard cast/sealed tuning machines dutifully uphold tuning integrity, whilst the synthetic bone nut maintains string tension to guarantee a uniform playing feel throughout.
The Squier Contemporary Active Stratocaster HH Electric Guitar offers something special - timeless design that includes modern appointments that enhance rather than diminish. This beauty plays like a dream and offers the same comfortable feel that has made the Strat such a cherished design. The inclusion of powerful active humbuckers gives it the roar that is needed to tackle high-gain genres including heavy rock and metal, as well as ensuring a smooth and confident clean tone for more laid-back styles.
