Squier’s Gold Edition series celebrates four decades of history with blinged-out models of all Fender’s classic guitars and basses. From the pickguard to the bridge and even the washers, the 40th-anniversary Gold Edition Stratocaster is studded with striking all-gold hardware. It also boasts a stunning bound Indian laurel neck with pearloid blocks, a late-'60s feature that Music Experience guitarists find complements this guitar’s decked-out cosmetics. A trio of Fender-designed Alnico V single-coils gives this guitar a classic Strat quack, with round lows, full mids, and bell-like highs. Stunning looks, comfortable playability, and incredible sound: the Gold Edition series is a gold mine of 40 years of high-quality Squier instruments.

Vintage-inspired pickups

These Fender-designed single-coil Strat pickups feature Alnico V magnets for that signature Strat snap. And with a 5-position blade, a Master Volume, and two tone controls, you have a wide array of sounds to dial in, in addition to near-infinite stylistic colorings to explore across genres.

That neck!

The "C"-shaped maple neck on this 40th-anniversary Gold Edition Stratocaster sets a great foundation for practically any style of player. We know that the feel of a neck is one of the most subjective parts of a guitar, but it's worth noting that even seasoned Strat players are impressed with this neck. It's everything you need to make you fall in love with that distinctive Strat feel, the one that players like Clapton fell in love with.
