Not many instrument makers have gone through as much of a transformation as Squier. In the 19th century, the company was founded as a violin manufacturer. Eventually, Squier expanded its operations to making strings for a variety of instruments, and by 1963 they had become the official maker of Fender's guitar strings. That prompted Fender to bring Squier into their family of companies, eventually re-introducing the name for a line of affordable electric guitars. Of course, a Fender by any other name is still a Fender, so the Squier brand of left-handed guitars heavily features the legendary Stratocaster and Telecaster. The basic Affinity-series Squier Strat is a perfect guitar for any beginner or hobbyist, with an impressive list of features like an alder body and maple neck, die-cast tuners and the standard Stratocaster layout of three single-coil pickups. It even has a tremolo bridge making it a full-featured instrument capable of intense expressiveness. If you'd like to take things up a notch, the left-handed Squier Standard Stratocaster ups the ante with Alnico pickups and one more fret than its little brother. Or, if you prefer a more vintage style, take a look at the Classic Vibe '50s and '60s left-handed Stratocasters, which are designed to bring back the unique character of those early decades in the instrument's history.
If you really love that vintage look and sound? The Telecaster also comes in a Classic Vintage '50s model, complete with the timeless butterscotch-blonde finish. This Tele comes with two original-style Alnico pickups for an authentic classic rock sound. If you like this guitar but are looking for something even more accessible, there's also the Affinity Left-handed Telecaster Special for your consideration.
Whether you prefer the Stratocaster or Telecaster, Squier's specialty is clear: putting Fender designs in the hands of every guitarist. Thanks to Squier left-handed electric guitars, it's easier than ever for a southpaw to get these historic guitars into your collection in an orientation that's made just for you.
