Squier Contemporary Stratocaster HSS

The Squier® Contemporary Stratocaster® HSS is an outstanding choice for the modern player seeking progressive features in a guitar that has authentic vibe and style.

Player-friendly features like a slim “C”-shaped maple neck give this guitar a slick, smooth feel, while the 12” fingerboard radius and narrow-tall frets are ideal for speed and effortless bends. The ceramic single-coil neck and middle pickups provide crisp, clear and dynamically responsive character to complement the ceramic humbucking bridge pickup, which boasts hot output for powerful tones perfect for crunchy rhythms and soaring solos. Premium styling cues include zebra humbucking pickup bobbins and an eye-catching matching painted headstock to make this guitar stand out from any crowd.

With its combination of timeless Strat style, player-centric features and incredible tone, the Contemporary Stratocaster HSS is the perfect hard-rocking addition to your arsenal.

Features

  • Ceramic zebra humbucking bridge pickup; ceramic single-coil neck and middle pickups
  • Maple neck with slim "C"-shaped profile and matching painted headstock
  • 12" fingerboard radius; narrow-tall frets
  • 6-saddle synchronized tremolo with block saddles

Ceramic Zebra Humbucking Bridge Pickup

For fat, high output rock tone with excellent clarity and punchy low-end, this instrument features a ceramic humbucking pickup in the bridge position.

Six-Saddle Synchronized Tremolo with Block Saddles

This Stratocaster features a six-saddle synchronized tremolo bridge with block saddles for superior intonation, sustain, tuning stability, tremolo action and ease of adjustment.

Matching Painted Headstock

In addition to its many other fine features, this Stratocaster features an elegant matching painted headstock.

Narrow-Tall Frets

The largest of the fret sizes, narrow-tall frets are tall and narrow, letting you get a better grip on the strings for more control and easier bends and vibrato.

Slim "C"-Shaped Neck Profile

This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a slim "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.

12" Fingerboard Radius

This instrument features a 12” fingerboard radius—a very slight curvature that’s flatter than a vintage-style 7.25” radius and even a modern 9.5” radius. This fingerboard radius allows for low action and is especially well suited to bending notes and soloing.
