A stunning example of Squier’s Classic Vibe Stratocaster in Natural, equipped with a laurel fingerboard. Fresh out of service from Leighton’s Guitar Workshop this guitar plays like a dream and is NOT to be missed.
Experience retro seventies style with the Squier Classic Vibe ‘70s Stratocaster. A true homage to the early days of iconic Fender guitars. Those of you after vintage tone and looks will love what this Strat has to offer.
Unlike the originals, the Classic Vibe range is equipped with modern hardware and custom electronics, making this the perfect instrument to see you through your guitar journey.
Body and Neck
A four-screw bolt-on neck connects the Poplar body and Maple neck – a relatively lightweight yet sturdy combination. You’ll feel right at home on the C-shaped neck profile with an easy playing 9.5” radius. Extremely comfortable for the fretting hand and great for chords.
The Indian Laurel fingerboard evokes true classic vibes and feels smooth underneath the tall and narrow frets.
Is there anything more iconic than a triple single coil Strat? This configuration is laced all over records from the sixties and seventies, and you get the same vintage sound here. The Classic Vibe range has a completely revamped pickup design from Fender, accurately recreating retro tone.
Expect brilliant clarity, cleans and dynamics. Add some overdrive and you’ll hear the unmistakable twang that put the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Pete Townshend on the map.
The Strat utilises a classic floating bridge system for strong bends or subtle tremolo effects. You can get truly creative with your playing. It also features a 1960s inspired large headstock, nickel-plated hardware and a tinted gloss neck finish to get you in the experimental seventies’ mood.
