OVERVIEW

A vintage-inspired beauty with sustain to boot.

With a body based off of one of the most notable guitars in history and dressed up in black, the Squier Vintage Modified ‘70s Stratocaster electric guitar looks wonderfully familiar. Squier tweaks the classic to give it a custom look and feel. Modified means adding new twists to familiar designs. Squier's Vintage Modified series excels at just that, imparting hot-output chop-shop sound, feel and value to traditional instrument designs.

Squier also included a maple fretboard, five-way pickup switch with black tip, three-ply pickguard, numbered volume and tone control knobs, vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge with vintage-style tremolo arm, vintage-style chrome tuners, chrome hardware and an engraved neck plate.

      Best feeling guitar I've ever owned. Comfortable in the hand and sweet on the tones. My expecatations were exceeded for the price. Quality thru and thru. I've put my ES335 down and picked up the magic with this Vintage Modified '70s Strat.

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster '70s Electric Guitar:

        Super guitar for the price! Sound, action, feel are all 100% in my opinion. I have owned alot of guitars over the years and this one is a perfect example of what a strat should be for a small amount of cash. Its far better than any Mex strat I have owned and a favorite amoung my Squires. The acton is nice and the highgloss finish on the neck is sweet and smooth. Pickups goe from bell tone clean to nice overdriven metal tones. Get one, you wont regret it.

          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster '70s Electric Guitar:

          I've owned around 15 guitars including American made Fenders and I've got to say this guitar is one of my favorites. The Seymour Duncan pickups cut through the mix very well while still maintaining the strat quack that we all love. I keep looking at the headstock thinking.. This is a Squier? I've retired my custom MIM Strat for this one.

            I use this with my line 6 pod ux1, the fretboard is extremely smooth. there are a fair amount of hum that goes along with the pick ups (which is expected in single coils) all the parts are solidly made. the tone is very bright and crystal clear. overall this is a very nice purchase for the price.

                  All my friends are musicians and I really can't play at all. This guitar seemed like an excellent value from what others had said. I was not disappointed. Everybody loves it. I have 2 more ordered that I am going to give as gifts!

                  I started with a FENDER 61 candy apple red strat, great guitar and let it slip on by...stupid me. WELL, this guitar plays as well and then some. MINE....well it is a bit different than those sold here. OLDER...by a few yrs. Mine made in INDIA...Indian Cedar body...great tone. like a cross between mahogany and ash....great. neck with rosewood fingerboard..same duncan pickups...super pups. very responsive. good fret work on necks. I think all the tone pots and whammy bars same same as MEX fenders?? tuners same too. all in all...why pay so much more for a name? If you are ERIC CLAPTON and have $1200 to spend ok, if not, why pay it? I sure do not have it. MINE>...well here we go...vintage red burst finish, rosewood fret wood, smaller style headstock....glossy neck finish....superb workmanship. Dont know squat about the basswood. I have seen squier strats with basswood, played em at local store here in St Joseph MO...had a orange brown finish...not sure of paint name...butterscotch?? had a tortoisshell pickguard..nice guitar, almost got it, but got this one instead. Mine has a tiger maple top on the indian cedar....really classy look...here is what I think, been playing FIFTY YRS NOW...NOT A PRO, BUT FOOL AROUND ALOT....BUY this guitar if you want a great guitar...if you find an older one with the indian cedar body I would suggest that first...also they have the tiger maple top on them even the black ones...owned a HSS version of that too..great tone there as well....for the money,,,get this over a MEX fender...nuff said...but get the one made in INDIA...you wont be sorry, trust me on this one ok?

                  I have played a 1994 PRS EG3 for 20 years and have some minor electronic and other minor issue to resolve. I play out and needed a stop gap guitar to play and seen this one and got it. Passed all the test needed to use this instrument and a couple gigs I will add to the mix and look to get another Strat.

                    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster '70s Electric Guitar:

                    I love the late 60's and 70's strats. My first pro guitar was a 68 strat, and I have always loved them. I came upon these here at MF and loved the look of them, and watched some reviews on you tube. So after all that I ordered one. I was more than surprised at the playability of this guitar...pretty amazing if you ask me. Everything works great, the fit and finish is close to perfect. I ordered the black one because that was the color of my 68.I'm gonna replace the pickguard and knobs and pu covers with white ones then it will look like my first one, but if you looking for an affordable strat that plays and sounds great, you owe it to yourself to go try one out.

                      I bought my first brand new guitar in high school, a 1964 Jaguar so I've been playing for a while. I have a lot of high end axes PRS Gibson American strats etc. I got this guitar to take to jam sessions and have a cheap guitar for a beater. I got the black on black. Sound was pretty good, but I installed a Dimarzio fastrac prewired pickguard because I like high gain QUIET pups. Wow, what a difference. This "beater" is now my main go to guitar. The maple neck is smooth and fast. I bought a Jimmy Vaughn MIM strat and used it for 2 hours and never got it out again. This guitar blows my MIM away big time. Great sustain and tone. I play thru a Blackstar soloist 60. This is the best bang for the buck out there bar none. Do not hesitate get this!
