Want a timeless Stratocaster without busting the bank? Enter Squier’s Classic Vibe ‘60s Strat, a faithful recreation of the classic Strat design.
Body & Neck
Squier have managed to equip their Classic Vibe ‘60s Strat with all the mojo you’d expect while keeping the price point accessible. For the body, they’ve opted for Nato. Not commonly used as a tonewood, it’s resonant and durable, ensuring comfy playability and woody sustain.
For the neck, it’s a C-shape maple construction with a 9.5” radius laurel fingerboard. Laurel is a more affordable alternative to rosewood offering a similar look and natural-feel.
Hardware & Electronics
Expect incredible tone courtesy of a trio of Fender-Designed alnico single-coil pickups. Alnico magnets provide classic twang, perfectly complemented by the treble-friendly Maple neck.
To round it all off with old-school class, Squier add a vintage-style tremolo system, ‘60s-inspired headstock markings, nickel-plated hardware and a slick vintage-tint gloss neck finish. Classic Vibe indeed!
