Crafting the Standard Stratocaster
Agathis has been used to craft the signature Stratocaster body shape with the double cutaway design giving you easy access to the higher frets; great for working on those guitar solos.
Attached to the body is a Maple neck with a satin finish making it extremely smooth and fast to play.
Atop the neck is a highly playable Maple fretboard with a modern 9.5” radius and 22 medium jumbo frets.
Giving the Squier Stratocaster the versatile sound which has made this guitar so popular over the years is a trio of standard single-coil strat pickups, one each found in the bridge, middle and neck positions.
These iron alloy, alnico magnets are the main source behind the Squier Strat’s warm and balanced vintage style tone.
A five-position blade allows you to choose which pickup or combination of pickups you’d like to use to get the sound you’re looking for:
- Position 1. Bridge Pickup
- Position 2. Bridge and Middle Pickup
- Position 3. Middle Pickup
- Position 4. Middle and Neck Pickup
- Position 5. Neck Pickup
There are also three control knobs allowing you to further customise your sound; Tone 1 for the neck pickup, Tone 2 for the middle pickup and a Master Volume.
At the top of the neck, you’ll find a synthetic bone nut aiding string alignment and sustain with six standard die-cast tuning machines on the headstock allowing for quick and precise tuning.
Down on the body of the Squier Standard Stratocaster is a two-point synchronised tremolo with block saddles.
The included tremolo arm allows for some great whammy action; essential for many styles of music.
