Celebrate the first decade of the Fender Stratocaster, with the Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s. This vintage-style solidbody electric guitar offers the sound and style that made the Strat the iconic instrument that it is today. This updated model features many cool revisions that make it a better value than ever. It includes a trio of Fender-designed alnico single-coil pickups (including standard 5-way switching) that really capture the traditional Stratocaster sound. At Music Experience, we're particularly impressed by the Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s' 1.65" bone nut — an exceptional addition to the classic C-shaped neck and 9.5"-radius fretboard, which provides the kind of sustain and performance you don't typically find on a budget-friendly guitar.
These Fender-designed single-coil Strat pickups feature alnico magnets for that signature Strat snap. And with a five-position blade, Master Volume, and two tone controls, you have a wide array of sounds to dial in, and near-infinite stylistic colorings to explore across genres.
The "C"-shaped maple neck on this Classic Vibe '50s 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.
Squier's tapped into something really cool with their Classic Vibe series — hot mods of classic Fenders, all sporting top-shelf materials and components, with primo fit-and-finish. If you're a guitarist or bassist, you'll likely agree that vintage Fender guitars and basses are heavily lusted-after items, so it's great that Fender, in their infinite wisdom, have set their Squier subsidiary free to create hot-rodded and affordable versions of the classics.
