Squier Contemporary Stratocaster Special - Black with Silver Anodized Pickguard
The Squier Contemporary Stratocaster Special puts a new twist on a Maxwell's House of Music favorite with several novel, unique upgrades. Starting with eye-catching black hardware and a painted headstock with sharp chrome logos, the Contemporary Stratocaster Special makes it known that this isn’t your ordinary Strat. But where things get really interesting is in the unique pickup configuration, which puts all three single-coil pickups on a slant and shifts the middle pickup closer to the bridge, for a totally new Strat sound. On top of that, the Contemporary Stratocaster Special boasts an eminently playable roasted maple neck, with a speed-promoting 12-inch radius fingerboard. Surely made for adventurous guitar players, the Contemporary Stratocaster Special is a bold addition to the Strat lineage!
