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 smooth-playing 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.


  • Maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and 21-fret fingerboard
  • Three Duncan Designed SC-101 single-coil pickups
  • Five-way pickup switch
  • Vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge
  • Vintage-style tuners
  • Case not included

First guitar for my son


Sam Ash and my sales Rep did a great job. When this guitar showed up my son was so excited. I opened up the box and even I was surprised. I have been in the music biz for 38+ years. The quality of this guitar is amazing for the money. The frets were perfect, The neck was super clean and smooth, intonation was correct and even the action was right on the money. You do not get that kind of quality out of the box from the local shops, sorry to say. I was expecting to buy the guitar then have to spend an hour or two giving it a complete setup. Well It's been about a month now and it hasn't even needed strings yet. My son plays every day about 5 to 6 time a day and this thing has not had one issue.




As good as my Fenders


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!

this is a great guitar...! i was very surprised about the squier quality, and the indonesian quality..! right out of the box the action, and intonation were great..! great looking, great feel, the frets are a touch big for me, but still good, pick ups have good tone on all 5 settings, kinda funny, but i'm glad they went with the 60's style tuners, i don't care for the 70's style.. the guitar is a nice weight at 7lbs 6oz. nice paint too.. the amber tint is a bit orange, but a nice contrast with the black... the hardware is also good, dang.. i've played a lot of guitars, and this sits next to the mexican guitars easy.. i'm just a bedroom musician by the way, but i think this would hold up great for gigging.... this is great news that you can get a great guitar for under $300, way to go fender...! i think i'll get a classic vibe custom tele too, and see how the [*] quality is on those, i've already heard good things about that series...A++
