Some say this is arguably the best playing guitar under $300.
The look, sound and feel of a guitar much higher priced.
There are guitarists who like the sound of something old but would want the feel of something new. It can be a very tricky thing to find but Fender believes it has the answer to that with the Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster. The Duncan-designed single coils provide the classic '60s Fender single coil sound while its modern-day construction makes it a very comfortable guitar to play. You couldn't help but be amazed that a Squier can produce a sound that can even rival an authentic vintage Fender Strat.
With great sound, great feel and great value, Squiers Vintage Modified Stratocaster returns with all-new features including a vintage-tint gloss neck, 70s-style large headstock, classic triple-single-coil tone and a striking new Vintage Blonde finish option in addition to timelessly cool Black and Three-color Sunburst.
Other features include a basswood body, maple neck, 9.5-radius rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets and parchment dot inlays, three Duncan Designed SC-101 single-coil pickups with aged white covers, five-way pickup switch with white tip, three-ply pickguard (white-black-white), white numbered volume and tone control knobs, vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge with vintage-style tremolo arm, vintage-style chrome tuners, chrome hardware and engraved neck plate.
