Everything that makes a Strat a Strat
Like many Strats that have come before, the Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s sports an alder body with a period-correct 2-color sunburst finish. The traditional maple neck is tinted to resemble a vintage Strat neck with a maple fingerboard. The long-familiar Strat tone is managed with a trio of single-coil pickups powered by Alnico III magnets for clear, bright Strat tones with the perfect amount of sustain. A vintage-style synchronized tremolo rounds out the feature set.
Squier's Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s is also equipped with the features modern players demand. The maple neck is loaded with player-favorite medium-jumbo frets on a modern 9.5" radius neck. Aged plastic parts lend a vintage vibe to the aesthetics, and black dot position markers run the length of the neck.
