Basswood Stratocaster Body
The Stratocaster body shape has been shouldered by many guitarists over the decades. Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Ry Cooder, Buddy Guy, and George Harrison are just a few names among many who are associated with this iconic look. As a tonewood, basswood will keep your tone from sounding too dark or too bright with its evenly balanced resonance, and, as a lightweight wood, basswood won't weigh you down if you're a lively player and enjoy moving around on the stage.
Duncan Designed SC-101 Single-Coil Pickups
Housed inside this guitar's basswood body are three Duncan Designed SC-101 single-coil pickups. All three of these pickups boast a clear sound with that classic Stratocaster sparkle that shines nicely when you brighten up your tone controls. You have five different pickup combination settings to choose from: bridge pickup only, bridge and middle pickup, middle pickup only, middle and neck pickups, and neck pickup only. Experiment with the 5-setting switch and see how many tones you can coax out of this axe.
Maple Neck with Bolt-On Joint
The maple neck on your Squier Vintage Modified '70s Stratocaster features an inviting rosewood fingerboard and 21 jumbo frets with cozy and addicting action. Maple necks keep your sound nice and bright, and bolt-on neck joints add a little bit of extra twang to the table -- a solid combination to yield that bright and vibrant Stratocaster sound.
Vintage Style Synchronized Tremolo Bridge
Anchoring your strings down securely is this axe's Vintage Style Synchronized tremolo bridge. A secure bridge system provides greater longevity of intonation and sustain. Be sure to take advantage of the tremolo arm to add another dimension of expression to your performance.
