Stratocaster FAQs

What's the difference between '50s, '60s and '70s Stratocasters?

Fender and Squier offer many variations on classic designs, but the general differences between '50s, '60s and '70s Strats are:

  • '50s - Chunky U or V neck profile, 7.25"" radius, ash bodies, single-ply scratchplate
  • '60s - Slimmer C neck profile, rosewood fretboards, alder bodies, slightly hotter pickups, multi-play scratchplate
  • '70s - Slimmer C neck profile, ash bodies, medium output pickups, chunky headstock

How do Stratocaster controls work?

Strats typically have a 5-way pickup switch. Position 1 is the bridge pickup, 2 is the bridge/middle togher, 3 is the middle pickup, 4 is the middle/neck together, 5 is the neck pickup. Positions 2 and 4 are noted for their poppy 'out of phase' tone. The volume knob controls the volume of all pickups. The first tone control (lowest) affects the middle pickup, while the second tone control affects the neck pickup.

What's the difference between Fender and Squier Stratocasters?

Squier make great affordable/beginner-friendly guitars based on genuine Fender designs, including the Stratocaster. The company is owned by Fender, and they use different materials and components, and manufacture overseas - this makes them more affordable.

What's the difference between a Stratocaster and a Telecaster?

Apart from their differing designs, the main difference between Strat & Tele is the sound. This is mostly due to different pickups and electronics. A Strat usually has 3 single-coil pickups and a 5-way selector with 2 tone controls, while a Tele usually has 2 single-coil pickups, a 3-way switch and a single tone control. Because of this, Stratocasters offer a broad range of sounds, from bright to spanky, while Telecasters are known for their twangy tones.

Is the Stratocaster the most versatile guitar?

Stratocasters are often considered versatile because of their pickups and controls. A typical Strat design features 5 pickup positions and 2 tone controls, offering a wealth of different sounds. They've been used by players across the musical spectrum, from classic funk to modern metal.
