Squier Stratocasters are Fender's line of affordable imports. Since the Strat is one of the most iconic and best-selling guitars in history, the Squier Stratocaster has a lot to live up to. It that does nicely, with several models to suit the budget and playing style of any guitarist.
Beginners and students should look at the Squier Bullet and Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster guitars. Squier Bullet Stratocasters are well-built, no-frills guitars that still rock all the typical Strat features. That includes a vibrato, or whammy bar system (sometimes also called a tremolo bar). Most Squier Bullet Strats come with the three single-coil pickups. You will also find them with one or two humbucking pickups. Humbuckers mean thicker, beefier tone that is less prone to feedback.
The Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster is also for beginner guitar players. They mimic the classic Fender design. Like the originals, Squier Affinity Strats have either single-coil or humbucker pickups. But, there are many more choices of body colors. The Squier Affinity Strat Pack includes everything you need to get started. The Affinity Strat Pack has a 15-watt Fender amp, cable, strap, gig bag, picks and tuner. It also has a lesson DVD, so you can start learning at home.
The Squier Standard Stratocaster is based on the Fender American Series Strat. It kicks things up a notch with upgraded hardware and finish options. The Squire Deluxe Stratocaster hot-rods the classic designs. It has tasty touches like Duncan Designed pickups and aged plastic parts. The Squier Classic Vibe Strat is based on the iconic axes from the '50s and '60s with modern upgrades. Those upgrades include a 9-1/2 neck radius and medium-jumbo frets. The Squier Vintage Modified Strat expands on the hot-rodding theme with a '70s-era axe. It offers humbuckers on some models. You’ll also find the new, retro-cool line of Squier Surf Strats. They have specially designed vintage-style Seymour Duncan lipstick tube pickups and groovy colors like Surf Green and Sonic Blue.
The Squier Artist Stratocasters feature customized signature models from notable players from around the world, with some models available only in select regions or for limited runs. No matter which Squier Strat you choose, you can't go wrong.
The Strat has been a favorite among players since it was first made in 1954. It is one of the most iconic-looking guitars ever produced. Its distinctive tone and smooth playability helped make hits for Strat players from Buddy Holly to Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn to Eric Clapton.
