Inspired by the Fender Contemporary series of the 1980s, today's Squier Contemporary Stratocaster HSS proves that a rocker-ready superstrat can be had for not a lot of dough. A set of high-gain ceramic single-coils and a supercharged humbucker, each with their own voice and output, run the gamut of party rock tones — from compressed '80s cleans and soaring leads to scorched-earth modern crunch when you need it. The Slim "C" neck with 12" radiused fingerboard provides a comfortable transition to higher frets and plenty of room for chording and bending. Meanwhile, the eye-catching zebra humbucker, trem bridge, and matching painted headstock give the Squier Contemporary Strat HSS the right look for your brand of hard rock and high-energy music.
With three distinct pickups and a 5-way toggle, the Squier Contemporary Strat HSS covers a good range of tonal ground, from violin-like leads to aggressive crunch.
Onboard tremolo readies the Contemporary Strat HSS to add texture to chords and movement to solos straight away — no mods required.
Lead players will enjoy exploring the Contemporary Strat HSS's quick, comfortable maple neck, whose 12" radiused fingerboard flattens out toward the body to facilitate faster playing styles. Narrow tall frets make bends and vibratos a cinch, too.

For fat, high output rock tone with excellent clarity and punchy low-end, this instrument features a ceramic humbucking pickup in the bridge position.
This Stratocaster features a six-saddle synchronized tremolo bridge with block saddles for superior intonation, sustain, tuning stability, tremolo action and ease of adjustment.
In addition to its many other fine features, this Stratocaster features an elegant matching painted headstock.
The largest of the fret sizes, narrow-tall frets are tall and narrow, letting you get a better grip on the strings for more control and easier bends and vibrato.
This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a slim "C"-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) and a smooth back finish – ideal for those who play with the thumb on the back or side of the neck.
This instrument features a 12” fingerboard radius—a very slight curvature that’s flatter than a vintage-style 7.25” radius and even a modern 9.5” radius. This fingerboard radius allows for low action and is especially well suited to bending notes and soloing.
