This Strat® features several player-friendly refinements such as a thin and lightweight body, a slim and comfortable “C”-shaped neck profile, a 2-point tremolo bridge for superior tremolo action and sealed die-cast tuning machines with split shafts for smooth, accurate tuning and easy restringing. Loaded with a trio of Squier single-coil Strat pickups with 5-way switching for genre-defying sonic variety, this model is ready to accompany any player at any stage.  

  • Upgraded hardware
  • Updated headstock logos
  • Satin neck finish for smooth fretting
  • Gloss headstock for a renewed appearance
  • Newly-voiced Strat pickups for improved tone
  • 2-point tremolo bridge for improved intonation and smooth action
  • Improved sealed-gear tuners with split shafts for precision tuning

The Fender Stratocaster first appeared in 1954 and incorporated many design innovations based on feedback from professional musicians, Fender staff, and Leo Fender himself. The Strat's third single-coil pickup offered more tonal possibilities than the two on the Tele, and its sleekly contoured body made it more comfortable. The double-cutaway design of the Stratocaster made access to upper registers much easier.
