The Squier Mini Stratocaster Limited Edition Electric Guitar in Olympic White offers the same sublime playability, tones and style of a Strat in a 3/4-sized version with shortened scale length for smaller-handed players and youngsters. Thanks to Squier's solid build quality and scaled down dimensions, the Mini Strat is also perfect as a travel guitar for guitarists on the go.
Sophisticated Strat style
The Squier Mini Stratocaster is shaped to the same ergonomically designed profile that has become a firm favourite with guitarists through the decades. Featuring figure-hugging curves that establish a supremely comfortable playing feel, the Mini Strat lends itself to being cradled during performances for a freeing experience. Whether you're starting out or have plenty of experience under your fingertips, the Mini Strat is a joy to perform with.
The body is crafted using laminated hardwood, which is finished in polyurethane to give it the qualities of resilience when handling changes in humidity and temperature, as well as marrying a lightweight feel with impressive rigidity. The result is the perfect travelling companion that can take the general punishment that comes with life on the road and standard guitar playing enthusiasm - you can confidently let rip during performances.
Supportive maple neck
Connected to the body via a sturdy 4-bolt construction is a durable and responsive maple neck. The neck is shaped to a "C"-shape profile, which allows it to sit comfortably in the hand. The neck is also finished in polyurethane to equip it with resilience whilst preventing unwanted tackiness from impeding your fretting hand as you play. The shortened scale length of 22.75-inches produces a warmer response from the strings than that of a longer scale length without sacrificing on articulation.
Paired with the neck is a smooth maple fingerboard, which is home to 20 medium-sized frets, which are decorated with pearloid dot position inlays to guide your way. Thanks to the double-cutaway body profile, the highest of frets are within comfortable reach to give you total freedom of the neck. The 9.5-inch fingerboard radius encourages you to exercise and hone your technique, making such flourishes as string bends as smooth to execute as possible.
Versatile pickup arrangement
The Mini Stratocaster features a classic setup with a trio of Standard single-coil Strat pickups fitted in the neck, middle and bridge positions. Switching between them can be done using the 5-way pickup selector switch, whilst a duo consisting of a master volume and master tone controls allow you to deftly attenuate your output to suit any musical style. Whether you're tackling clean country licks, running through saturated blues solos, performing elaborate jazz or crushing hard rock riffs, the Mini Strat allows you to segue between anything and everything with ease.
Stable hardware setup
The Squier Mini Stratocaster is home to a 6-saddle vintage-style Strat strings-through-body hardtail bridge, which anchors each string securely for optimised intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to standard die-cast tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with steadfast precision as you play.
