An affordable homage to one of the most iconic electric guitars of the past 50 years, the Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '60s sports updated modern features combined with vintage-inspired appointments. The result is the sound that made the Strat a stage and studio staple for generations. With three alnico single-coil Strat pickups and essential 5-way switching, you get thick, warm Strat tone. At Music Experience, we're particularly stoked about the addition of a bone nut to the classic C-shaped maple neck and 9.5"-radius fingerboard — something we don't normally find on such an affordable guitar. Add to that a Vintage-Style Synchronized Trem, and the Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '60s is an amazing deal.
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.
