Squier revamps the Contemporary series with new unique Stratocaster, Telecaster and Jaguar models
Squier has revealed its revamped Contemporary series, its line of electric guitars that bring classic Fender designs and modern, heavy-focused features together.
New for 2021 are:
Contemporary Stratocaster Special
Image: SquierThis guitar sports a few interesting twists on the Strat format. Mainly, the middle pickup has been moved closer to the bridge for “a unique variety of dynamically responsive settings.” It also features a roasted maple neck and sculpted neck heel, along with a two-point tremolo.
The guitar comes in either black or Sky Burst Metallic lists for $429.99 / £349 / €399.
Contemporary Stratocaster Special Hard Tail
Image: SquierWith the same unique pickup arrangement as the other Contemporary Stratocaster Special, only with a string-through hardtail bridge this time, and two different available finishes: Pearl White and Sunset Metallic.
$429.99 / £349 / €399
Contemporary Stratocaster HH FR
Image: SquierWhen there’s Neon Pink on display as well as a floating Floyd Rose Tremolo, things are of course going to be geared towards shred. Bright, classic rock tones can be achieved thanks to the coil-tapping five-way switch, and upper-fret access shouldn’t be an issue thanks to the sculpted neck heel.
The guitar is offered in Shell Pink Pearl and Gunmetal Metallic, and lists for $449.99 /£369 / €429.
Contemporary Telecaster RH
Image: SquierThe bound roasted maple neck isn’t the only eye-catching thing about this Tele – with black hardware and a painted headstock, as well as a rail humbucker in the bridge and a Squier Atomic humbucker in the neck.
It’s available in Pearl White, Shoreline Gold, and Gunmetal Metallic, and lists for $429.99 / £349 / €399.
Contemporary Jaguar HH ST
Image: SquierThis guitar is a rock-solid take on the Jaguar, with two Atomic humbuckers and coil-tap and series/parallel switching on its upper control plate. A sculpted neck-heel also adds a touch of contemporary playability to the design.
$449.99 / £369 / €429
