The Squier Stratocaster is a tried and tested favourite for first-time Electric Guitar players around the world. Much like its Fender counterparts, the Squier Strat features an iconic double cutaway body, 3 pickups and a host of classic finishes to choose from.
If you're a fan of the classic rock and roll sound and want to pick up and play, chances are a good Squier Stratocaster will fit the bill. Famous Stratocaster players from recent past include Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and Jeff Beck, to name 3 of thousands across the globe!
The common Stratocaster will often feature 3 single-coil pickups (SSS). Squier also frequently release Strats with the HSS configuration, offering a little extra tonal horsepower and versatility from a humbucker pickup alongside 2 single coils.
