If you’re after a Fender Strat but can’t stump up the cash, the Squier Standard Stratocaster is more than a viable alternative. Designed and backed by Fender, this is no imitation.
The Squier Standard Stratocaster Left Handed Electric Guitar gives you the legendary Strat body shape that has graced the hands of many iconic players over the decades, and in this case is crafted from agathis, rather than the usual alder, to keep cost down without being too detrimental to tone. This is finished in the gorgeous Antique Burst, which along with the 4-ply tortoiseshell pickguard give the aesthetics of a much more expensive guitar.
Joined to the body of the Squier Standard Stratocaster Left Handed Electric Guitar, and kept in place by an engraved, 4-bolt neck plate, is a maple neck, carved to the slim, highly playable C shape. Topping this is a 9.5” radius, rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and dot inlays. At one end of the neck is a large '60s-style headstock outfitted with a set of standard die-cast tuners, while at the other is a twin-pivot bridge with satin-anodised saddles; providing smooth tremolo action.
The Squier Standard Stratocaster Left Handed Electric Guitar gives you the sound and versatility that you’re after for when you looking at a Strat. This comes in the form of three Standard Single-Coil Strat pickups, controllable via a master volume, and two tone control knobs, alongside a 5-position pickup selector switch.
