Squier Contemporary Active Strat HH with Floyd Rose - Flat Black
The Contemporary Active Strat HH boasts a host of features that make it the perfect rock or metal dream axe. Featured is a Floyd Rose Tremolo, a unique reverse headstock design and powerful Squier active electronics.
Introducing the Squier Contemporary Active Strat HH with Floyd Rose! Seen here in Flat Black, this progressive model takes the classic Stratocaster design and combines it with a host of powerful upgrades to become a true thoroughbred hard rock machine.
Although the classic Strat stance and Squier contoured Poplar body is present this is where the similarities with the traditional Stratocaster end. The Contemporary Active Strat HH adopts a set of mean black chrome hardware, black plastic control knobs, a matching painted reverse headstock, a 3-ply pickguard and a 3-way pickup position selector switch - this is a certainly a guitar for those who want to stand out from the crowd!
For the neck Squier adopted a Maple neck with a 'C' shape profile, this is then joined to a rich Rosewood fingerboard decorated with cream dot inlays and adorned with 22 jumbo frets. This more modern spec lends itself to more intricate, fast playing styles and is ideal for those times when intense string bends come into play.
For heavy rock and metal shredders the Floyd Rose is in itself an essential tool for both achieving extreme vibrato and maintaining reliable tuning stability at the same time. Fitted to this Active Strat HH is a genuine Floyd Rose Licensed Double Locking Tremolo.
Another key feature and the icing on the cake for this devestating Squier weapon is of course it's Active electronics and pickups. This high output humbucking duo boast a hot output meaning that those high gain, crunchy tones are always on tap with crushing lows and aggressive highs.
