The Squier Vintage Modified '70s Stratocaster delivers late '70s style Strat tone, and feel at a very affordable price.

The Squier Vintage Modified '70s Stratocaster gives you all the vibe, tone and feel that will take you back to the late '70s when rock & roll was moving into new frontiers and continuing to revolutionize the music world. This Stratocaster sports a basswood body with the legendary ‘comfort contour’ design that was way ahead of its time. The body is outfitted with a trio of single-coil pickups specially designed by Seymour Duncan to deliver those bell-like, bright Strat tones that were the driving force behind an endless list of guitar legends. Period correct black plastic parts give this Stratocaster that look that says “1979”.

The Vintage Modified '70s Stratocaster sports a traditional maple neck that is also equipped with the modern features that today’s players demand. The neck boasts a rosewood or maple fingerboard with a flatter radius of 9.5” with 21 medium-jumbo frets which makes for effortless, clean string bending. A vintage style synchronized tremolo completes the package. The headstock is carved into the iconic large headstock which the Stratocaster featured throughout the 1970s. Case not included.

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified '70s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I was looking for a MIM Fender Strat on the used market and my friend who works at a small music store told me to look at the Squier. I was against it 100%. I tried maybe 40 Fender MIM and Korean (Koa) used Strats. I wanted a rosewood neck and anything but a Squier. After getting frustrated and trying about 5 shops, I finally tried this one as he recommended - I was blown away! Was not what I was looking for but took less than a minute of playing to know it was the one and all along it was what I was looking for in terms of tone, feel, and playability. This guitar does not feel cheap, does not sound cheap, does not play cheap - it feels like a $700 Strat, I know, I have one. I play it to this day and have upgraded nothing. The bridge and trem probably need to be upgraded for really serious players (I am but this is not my main guitar), but is fine for probably 99% of most hobbyist or budget guitarists out there. Pulls of David Gilmore tones in spades with the right amp - a nice clean Fender or Vox would do, I prefer solid states for my clean amps and only play vintage Lab Series amps the the clean side of my rig and they sound amazing. I highly recoommend this guitar to anybody wanting a Strat but is on a budget. The Duncan pups rip on these things, no need to replace them at all!
