        Squier Contemporary Active Stratocaster HH - Flat Black

        What Fender have to say:

        The Squier Contemporary Active Stratocaster HH is an outstanding choice for the modern player seeking progressive features in a guitar that has authentic vibe and style. Player-friendly features like a slim "C"-shaped maple neck give this guitar a slick, smooth feel, while the 12" fingerboard radius and narrow-tall frets are ideal for speed and effortless bends. A dual-locking Floyd Rose tremolo system invites the most extreme vibrato by maintaining reliable tuning stability. The dual Squier active humbucking pickups boast hot output for powerful tones perfect for crunchy rhythms and soaring solos. Premium styling cues include black chrome hardware and an eye-catching matching painted reverse headstock that's sure to turn heads. With its combination of timeless Strat style, player-centric features and incredible tone, the Contemporary Active Stratocaster HH is the perfect hard-rocking addition to your arsenal.


        The Squier Contemporary Active Stratocaster features a Poplar body which not only makes it durable and strong but also lightweight and comfortable to play sat down to stood up. Finished off in a classy flat black Satin Polyurethane finish it looks fantastic! Paired to the Poplar body we have a Maple neck sporting 22 Jumbo sized frets, Slim C neck shape, and a 12" fingerboard radius. This fingerboard radius not normally associated with Fender guitars allows you to set the action extremely low and is perfect for those tough note bends.


        Where this Stratocaster stands out from the rest of the Squier range is the pickups. The contemporary active Strat comes fitted with a set of Active ceramic Humbucker pickups. These pickups are designed for a lot of low-end growl. Ideal for anyone wanting to play Rock and heavier music the pickups have a higher output than most. Whether you are wanting a tight rhythm sound or soaring lead tones this strat is a fantastic choice for anyone looking for a quality high-gain sounds. You have control over these pickups with a 3-position blade switch to switch between the pickups with ease, a master volume and a master Tone control.


        The Squier Contemporary Active Stratocaster boasts the ever popular Floyd-Rose tremolo which is designed to allow you to excessively use the whammy bar as aggressive or as subtle as you like without having to worry about encountering tuning issues. With precise tenders at the bridge you can easily adjust the tuning by fractions easily without moving your hand away from the bridge. Paired with a locking nut which provides fantastic sustain, and un-matched tuning stability. Whether you're using light tremolo action or even massive sounding dive bombs you can be at ease knowing you tuning and tension is stable.
