OVERVIEW

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.

    Fit and finish a step above your average Squire. Might upgrade tuners and bridge one day, but not a priority.

    better than I hoped

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

    I don't write reviews but thought I would for this guitar to cover a few things I haven't read as well as to say how much I like this guitar. I heard the pickups might be high output but found they match very nicely with the tone and volume of my Classic Vibe Telecaster, it makes switching between the two nice and easy. The pickups were clear and articulate and the sound of the guitar was a few ticks sweeter and creamier than my Tele really just what I was hoping for plus a bit more. The color of the guitar was a little richer than the pictures, very close but in person I like it more. The last 3 guitars I have purchased have been Squiers something that would have surprised me not that many years ago but the quality is pretty spectacular and on a slightly different note, the bars I play at are not paying anymore than they were 20-25 years ago, some are paying less. So when I look at some of the amazing vintage guitars and amps that were around 300-500 many years ago are 1500-2500 today. I love that I can still get such a nice guitar for the same amount that I was paying 25 years ago. Makes me think that Squier is looking out for the folks still plugging away in their basements, not getting rich but still in love with music.

        I picked this up as a Xmas gift, had a hard time giving it away. This is an incredible value I have multiple American strats and this keeps up with them. Some parts are not the same quality but it plays and sounds comparable. I've always believed you get what you pay for and purchase expensive guitars but this ones an exception. I never leave reviews but felt this deserved one.

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

          First off kudo's to Musicians Friend for such a great deal on this guitar. That being said I purchased this guitar as a mod platform but i won't bore you with how great tho art. Let's talk about the out of the box experience. The guitar arrived in a timely fashion and when I first inspected it was pleasantly surprised there were no major concerns. A couple of things to know about though. I have read some reviews saying this guitar came all set up. You might get one that comes that way and I might win cash three tonight. Mine had some fret ends that needed dressed. After that the neck was amazing. The guitars intonation was considerably off and the truss rod way too tight. Another concern was the bridge saddle set screws that are of different lengths to allow for the saddles to be radiused were mixed up and in the wrong spot. after addressing those concerns the guitar is fantastic. Fit and finish are much more than you would expect for a guitar in this price range. The Duncan Designed pups sound awesome. Buy a vintage Modified and either set it up your self or have it done. You wont be disappointed.

            Great guitar after pro set up and new strings were added. Stays in tune and has a great sound, seems like the guitar should have cost much more but pleased it did not.

            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.
