With a body based off of one of the most notable guitars in history and dressed in vintage white, the Squier Vintage Modified ˜70s Stratocaster electric guitar looks wonderfully familiar. Squier tweaks the classic to give it a custom look and feel. Modified means adding new twists to familiar designs. Squier's Vintage Modified series excels at just that, imparting hot-output chop-shop sound, feel and value to traditional instrument designs.

The Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster electric guitar is constructed of basswood which has excellent sustain and a great resonance at mid and high frequencies.

Squier also included a rosewood fretboard, five-way pickup switch with black tip, three-ply pickguard, numbered volume and tone control knobs, vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge with vintage-style tremolo arm, vintage-style chrome tuners, chrome hardware and an engraved neck plate.

Unique, and an incredible value. . .

By Patrick Fitzgerald _ _ _ _

from Paradise, CA

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster '70s Electric Guitar:

There seems to be some confusion out there about this guitar. It is NOT a standard Squier VM Strat, nor is it a cheap reproduction of a Fender 70's USA Strat. It is a unique and excellent guitar that pays homage to, but in some ways surpasses, the 70's Strats, but at a very low price point. Also, it is likely that your local GC does not stock it, and the staff there may not know much about it. This guitar plays, feels and looks fantastic, and the Duncan designed pick-ups provide all the "real" Strat tone you'll ever want or need. The black/maple neck version and the white/rosewood neck model look and sound so different that I bought them both - for less than $500 total! The Squier line now includes quite a number of very interesting, inexpensive guitars, and I've even noticed that a few pros are starting to use them. Keep up the good work Fender! Note: The guitar was unplayable out of the box. I immediately took it to my local GC and had it set up and re-strung. I've since tweaked the string height and neck tension a little bit, and the playability is now first-rate.

A True Tone Monster ,For A Fraction Of the Price Of A MIA Model !

By Jeffrey Osgood

from Woonsocket, R.I.

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster '70s Electric Guitar:

I happened to scoop up one of these used,last week from one of the GC stores online. It just came in a couple of days ago and it was worth every penny I paid for it. Squier has really upped their game, first with the Classic Vibe series and now with these Vintage Modified models. I couldn't find a single flaw with this guitar at all. The frets are perfectly rolled, along with Kluson style tuners that are IMO, much better than what are on Fender's MIM Standard Strats. The Duncan Designed pups sound absolutely great and can handle any genre of music with ease. The setup and intonation were spot on and I have to say that this baby would give any MIA Fender strat a run for it's money. That's how good it is,but at a fraction of what a MIA would cost you.

Great Value, Real Strat!

By Joe Paradise

from Toms River, NJ

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster '70s Electric Guitar:

This Strat holds its own with the American models, surpasses the Ensenada models, and costs a lot less than either one. It doesn't have the fancy rolled edges of the American, and the pickups are "Duncan Designed" instead of Custom Shop '69s, but whatevs - the beauty of Leo's design is that even with budget materials, a Strat is a Strat it still plays and sounds like it should. When I became a casualty of the Bush recession 4 years ago, I had to sell my USA-made Malmsteen Strat - and I think I like this one more. I bought a no-name Strat copy to hold me over till I could replace the Yngwie, and it did the job, but never felt right. Unlike that guitar, this feels, sounds, and plays like a Strat in every way, and bonus, it looks just like Ritchie Blackmore's form his The neck feels perfect, fretwork has no issues as all (and I quite like the small vintage frets after having played on Medium Jumbo for so long), and the finish looks great. Pickups are nice and raspy, ver little noise, and sound great thru my Pignose 7-100, aka the greatest guitar amplifier ever. One thing I did when I got this guitar was change the trem block - Squiers come with this thin zinc trem block that just feels flimsy when you use the bar- but a $18 steel GFS replacement block solved that issue and was a stupid easy fix that anybody can do. But this is a great value, and if you're a fan of the big-headstock Stratocaster, this is a great way to go.

Great Guitar at a Great Price!

By William

Verified Buyer

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster '70s Electric Guitar:

I am primarily a bass guitarist but wanted to pick up a versatile electric without spending a fortune for use in my home studio. I was a bit nervous about purchasing a guitar sight and touch unseen but after reading several reviews and watching several more on YouTube, I decided to give the Vintage Modified '70s a try. Out of the box this guitar looks and feels amazing. The set up was extremely comfortable and the intonation was near perfect. I invited a "real" guitarist to check it out and he was also very surprised. He said that if it did not say "Squire" on the head stock he would not have known that it was not a much more expensive Strat. Bottom line, great guitar at a great price!


Very impressed

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster '70s Electric Guitar:

      I am incredibly impressed with this guitar, even more so at this price; I can't tell the difference between the tone/workmanship/playability of this relative to any Strat I've played. I really cannot recommend it strongly enough. Playing it through my beloved Vox AC15 and finding so many great tones. Thought I was insane to buy a guitar without playing it first, then reasoned that it could be returned anyway. If you're on the fence, I say go for it.

      Wasn't too happy with it, neck was narrower than I thought and came with truss rod issues. I'm sure it was this specific one though that had manufacturing issues. Good sound though
