Overview

The Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster FMT HSS proves that great style doesn't always come with a heavy price tag. Featuring a flame maple veneer top, the FMT HSS is a striking first guitar, offering plenty of room to grow. It's also a solid backup for more advanced players, and an excellent platform for DIY mods. Loaded with two single-coil pickups and a humbucker, this Squier Strat offers versatile sounds for any genre of music. Available now at Guitar Center, the Stratocaster FMT HSS is an affordable ticket into the Fender family that punches well above its weight.

Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster FMT HSS Main Features

  • Flame maple veneer top over poplar body
  • Maple neck with slim C profile, maple fretboard
  • Dual Affinity Series single-coil pickups, bridge humbucker, 5-way switch
  • 2-point tremolo, sealed split-shaft tuners

Classic Body Style With a Fancy Top

This Squier has the same double-cutaway body style that Fender made famous in the ’50s. It's made of poplar, a balanced tonewood that allows the pickups to shine. The flame maple veneer top gives this Strat extra elegance.

Easy-to-Play Neck

The FMT HSS has a maple neck with slim C profile, which means the back is shaped like a rounded oval. It's a comfortable fit for the fingers, making it easier to form chords and solo. The maple fretboard adds snap to every note. Check out that headstock logo, too—the chunky block text is straight from the ’70s.

Versatile Pickup Combination

This Squier Stratocaster FMT HSS is loaded with three pickups for sonic versatility. The "H" stands for "humbucker"—it has a more aggressive sound suitable for classic rock to slow blues, metal and more. The "SS" refers to the two single-coil pickups, which have a brighter, tighter tone. This HSS configuration makes the Squier Strat fit into all genres of music.

Updated, Fail-Safe Hardware

The Strat FMT HSS has updated hardware that makes it easier for beginners to play. The tremolo unit mounts to the body in two points, rather than the traditional six. This creates less friction for more tuning stability. Thanks to their split-shaft design, it's a cinch to change strings—just thread each through the body of the guitar, insert the loose end into the tuners and turn to tighten. Unlike other guitars, this design eliminates sharp string ends that can poke fingers and damage gig bags.

A case for the Squier Stratocaster FMT HSS is available separately.
