Exploring the Squier Sonic Series Stratocaster Models | Fender


collapse expand iconDescription

Squier brings the iconic Fender Stratocaster into reach with the Sonic Stratocaster HSS. This stylish, versatile and affordable instrument features the classic double-cutaway shape, with a lightweight body for playing comfort. The C-shaped neck has a smooth satin finish and the maple fingerboard is primed for fast playing.

Versatile Pickups Produce Both Bold and Bright Tones

A humbucker in the bridge position delivers high-output tone, perfect for heavier styles of music. The single-coil neck and middle pickups chime with crisp clarity, ideal for genres like rock, blues and country. With this combination, the Sonic Stratocaster HSS can produce a wide range of tones to suit any musical adventure.

Tremolo Bridge Adds Expressiveness

The six-saddle tremolo bridge allows players to bend notes and add vibrato effects. By rocking the tremolo arm, notes can be gently undulated or dramatically swooped for lead lines that sing. The tremolo bridge provides a fun way for new players to experiment with different sounds and techniques.

Sealed Tuners and Durable Hardware Provide Reliability

The Sonic Stratocaster HSS features sealed tuning machines that help keep the guitar in tune through hours of playing. The chrome-plated hardware, including the bridge saddles, pickup covers and control knobs, is built to last while also giving the guitar a stylish shine under the stage lights.

Made for Comfort and Built to Inspire

With its lightweight body, slim neck profile and smooth fingerboard, the Sonic Stratocaster HSS is made to play comfortably. An ideal first guitar, it provides an authentic Fender experience at an affordable price.
