A vintage style beauty that anybody can afford.

With a body based off of one of the most notable guitars in history and dressed in vintage white, 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.

The Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster electric guitar is constructed of basswood which has excellent sustain and a great resonance at mid and high frequencies. Three Duncan Designed SC-101 single-coil pickups with black covers spruce up the look and sound of the guitar. Squier also included a rosewood 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.

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

    I bought this guitar so I wouldn't risk my high-end LP while traveling. I'm surprised at how well made this Squire is and how good it sounds. My only complaint is that there is one dead spot on the fretboard. Overall a great deal.

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

        Yeah, It's true. Squier is definitely onto something.


        As a younger man I was mainly a Ibanez, charvel/Jackson style player. but now into my 40's
        I thought I'd go LOOK at some strats.
        I went to a music store and started looking at AM.strats.. After a few test runs I wasn't jazzed enough to drop that kind of Cheese... So I thought I'd just stick to my RG's.
        Then on my way out I saw this blonde VM in the corner looking all Blackmooreish.
        OK so I take a look, .. First thing I noticed and liked about it was the neck!!!. Soooo smooth, and set up perfectly. The body was sweet also. deep contours.(deeper than the AM stats). Smooth flawless finish. Light easy to play.
        I took it home , made a pickup change in the neck and bridge, then POW!! My dream guitar for under half the cost of the AM.
        But don't tell anybody. lets keep this on the down low. ( kidding.. Go get one now!)

            THe is guitar is one step below the Squier CLassic Vibe series, but that's not a bad thing. The guitar looks nice, I adjusted the truss rod to remove some underbow. Plays great. I have never seen a tremelo set like this, it felt blocked. But I adjusted it some and now it's okay. The guitar stays in tune too. Nice guitar for a very ncie price.I have no issues at all with this guitar. A better fret job then my recent MIM strat. Get one. I like it.

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

              Just last night I sat with this guitar and my 2012 American Standard Stratocaster. I A/B'd them for about an hour. Same songs, same riffs. I wanted to do an honest comparison on the sound and the feel. The pickups on this Squier are better than the fat 50's on the American strat. The build quality is the same. Maybe the materials are much cheaper on this Squier but you can't tell by the look, feel, and playability. My Amer. Strat cost 4x what this Squier costs. It's nice but not worth that vs this guitar. I feel much better about the money I shelled out for this. All strats are production line guitars anyway, so why not save some money and pick up one of these. You won't regret it. I've been playing guitar since 1978 so I'm not blinded by "professional" guitars over "beginner" guitars. This guitar could be traveled with and gigged regularly same as any "professional" guitar. I know it's hard to get over brand names, and I struggle with it myself sometimes, but this Squier is a very nice guitar overall. There no such thing as a beginner guitar, just beginner players.

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

                I have been playing for 27 years and was at one time a guitar snob, spending thousands on American made guitars. I sold all that in the past to get out of debt and decided to reenter the market in the "affordable" guitar range.
                That being said I love this guitar just as much as any American Fender. The neck is fast and feels great, set up was great, the blonde finish is super sweet and the black knobs and PU covers add a nice touch along with the big headstock. I'm using this strat through a Line 6 HD300 for recording and through a VOX amp live and it's quiet as a mouse. The Seymour Duncan pickups sound great. You can get all the great "spanky" strat sounds and they handle OD well too.
                The only slight imperfection is a barely, and I mean barely noticable place at the neck joint where the body wasn't cut perfect, so you can see just a sliver of wood between the neck and where the paint starts, it's not even a deal though, could happen to any strat.
                BEST PART-I could buy four of these for the price of one American strat!

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

                The neck has a few spots where the gloss has chiped off. Nothing to bad but still annoying. Also one of the tone pots gave out after about a month.

                That said I would buy another one in a heart beat if this were lost or stolen. The feel and tone of this guitar beat any of my strats (squiers, mex Fenders and American Fenders). Even my Friends who ONLY play American Fenders can't believe how great this guitar sounds.

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

                  I always liked the style of the 70's Stratocasters. As an owner of a Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS, I wanted a SSS model, but did not want to spend another $1600 on it. I just happened across this model and thought I would give it a try based on the good reviews it has received from others. They were right. Gives me the 70's vibe without the cost. Granted, the American Standard is better quality overall, but for what I paid for this and what I wanted it for, it is definitely good buy. It is amazing how the quality of the Squier's has gone up the last few years.

                    I am amazed with my vintage modified stratocaster. I cannot believe how good it sounds and all the different sounds I can get from it. The paint job is fantastic. It's a beautiful guitar, the only thing I might change is the pickups just to get rid of a little bit of the (infamous) strat hum. Other than that it stays in tune, plays smooth, and can get almost any sound from funk to Heavy metal and anything in between. And musicians friend service was excellent.
