Details


The Squier Contemporary Stratocaster Special HT brings modern features and bold aesthetics to an iconic Fender platform to satisfy today's most discerning and daring players. At the heart of this guitar is a set of Squier SQR alnico single-coil pickups positioned in a "special" configuration with the middle pickup near the bridge pickup for a unique variety of dynamically responsive settings. The roasted maple neck was chosen for its optimal tone and stability, and a sculpted heel design allows for improved access all the way to the 22nd fret. High-performance components round out the feature list and include a string-through-body hardtail bridge for ideal body resonance, and a set of sealed-gear tuning machines with split shafts for smooth tuning action and easy restringing. Eye-catching styling cues include stealthy black hardware and a sleek painted headstock with chrome logos for a premium look.
