Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster ’60s 3 Tone Sunburst Overview by GAK
The rough-and-tumble Classic Vibe Stratocaster® ’60s evokes that musically adventurous decade, adding a few modern features. The thick tone comes from the alnico V single-coil pickups — quick attack with a bit more midrange force. Custom staggered polepieces provide improved string-to-string balance. The 60s-style neck hosts a modern 9.5" radius for comfortable playing and string bending.
Featuring a Maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and 21-fret rosewood fingerboard, Three custom vintage-style single-coil Stratocaster pickups, Five-way pickup switch, Vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge.
The neck on this model sports a vintage-tinted gloss finish for a highly desirable aged look.
These pickups use classic Alnico V magnets for slightly hotter output with enhanced string balance and warm midrange — great for lead guitar.
This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary "C"-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) and a smooth back finish — ideal for those who play with the thumb on the back or side of the neck.
