Squier Contemporary Stratocaster Special HT
The Squier Contemporary Strat HT (hard tail) delivers a selection modern features paired with bold looks that will appeal to today's forward thinking players.
At the heart of this Contemporary Series Strat HT, you have the iconic Fender Strat foundation, but things start to take an interesting twist with the pickups. It comes loaded with 3 single coil pickups, just like a regular Strat, but these Squier SQR Alnico pickups have a unique position configuration, with the middle pickup set further back, nearer the bridge allowing for a unique variety if switcahble settings. The 5-way switch takes you across the following, position 5 - Neck, position 4 - Bridge, Middle and Neck, position 3 - Middle and Neck, position 2 - Middle, and finally position 1 - Bridge and Middle. Simple master volume and tone controls complete the electronics setup.
Its not only the pickups that are unique to this model. A roasted maple neck delivers superb tone and stability, whilst a sculpted heel design allows for improved access to the upper frets. Players will also appreciate the modern 12" fingerboard radius and jumbo frets, making for a great playing guitar whether hitting powerful riffs or nailing those lead lines.
Other appointments include a rock solid hard tail bridge with block saddles and string-thru body design, a set of sealed-gear tuning machines, a black painted headstock with chrome logo, and stealthy black hardware.
