This Squier '70s Stratocaster is from the Vintage Modified range and with the black on black style it looks amazing. The Vintage Modified series sees both old school and modern design to create a best of both electric guitar that sounds, feels and plays very, very well. If you're looking for a great first guitar or even a second guitar then this is a great option. The Stratocaster is very versatile and you can use it to play Rock, Jazz, Blues, Country or anything you want, there are no rules!


The Basswood body is finished in gloss black which gives a mean look when coupled with the black scratch plate. With black plastic hardware too it's a seriously good looking guitar! The maple neck and fingerboard contrast the dark body amazingly giving a finished look that you can be proud of.


With the oversized headstock and the vintage tint gloss it looks like a new guitar from the '70s. Plus, the addition of vintage style hardware such as the tuning machines really capture the essence of that era. 


The pickups on this guitar are Duncan Designed, yes they really are! This is an amazing feature to have on a guitar of this price. They truly sound great and it's easy to get your favourite sounds using the 5-way pickup selector. This guitar features 3 single coil pickups, just like Strats always have!


Overall this guitar is just fantastic and for the money you can't go wrong. Easy to play, biting tones and great looks... What more do you need?!
