2014 marked the Diamond Jubilee of the Stratocaster and to mark this milestone several models were released, including Squier’s 60th Anniversary Classic Vibe ’50s Stratocaster. The instrument celebrates six decades of the world’s greatest electric guitar with a truly gilded model featuring an Aztec Gold gloss finish and gold hardware.
If you’ve ever picked up a Squire Classic Vibe you know just how incredible these instruments are especially when taking into account the price point. This particular model is a limited edition 60th anniversary featuring a decadent gold motif that covers the body and hardware.
Other features include a maple neck with a comfortable “modern C” profile, 9.5″-radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets, three custom vintage-style single-coil Stratocaster pickups with five-way switching, three-ply parchment pickguard, vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge with six saddles, and vintage-style tuners.
