What we say:
At A Glance:
Squier's Contemporary Stratocaster Special in Black is one of their more imaginative offerings. At quick glance it may look like a regular Stratocaster but there is a lot more going on here. The Contemporary Series features many premium appointments for the modern player such as a roasted maple neck and sculpted heel. What sets this model apart is the special pickup configuration which gives way to a whole host of possibilities. If you are looking for a well playing instrument that defies tradition, we recommend giving this a try!
Features We Love:
Roasted Maple Neck
Rarely found at this price point, the roasted maple neck is certainly a special feature. The roasting process of the wood increases stability and makes for a very reliable and tonally rich neck. It also looks pretty amazing too! We are thoroughly impressed.
Special Pickup Configuration
This trio of Squier SQR alnico single-coil pickups are laid out in a way that creates some mesmerising tones. The middle pickup is closer to the bridge and allows for a unique variation of sounds which can be selected via the 5-way selector. Position 1 for example uses the bridge and middle in series with hum-cancelling.
Another asset usually only found on high-end guitars, the sculpted heel provides easy access to the upper frets. The smooth carve is incredibly comfortable and also adds to the overall classy look of the instrument.
