Fender Squier Sonic HSS Lime Green and 2-Color Sunburst

These new Fender Squier Sonic HSS Lime Green and 2-Color Sunburst models offer one very bright and one very traditional new colour option.

Poplar

They have a poplar body paired with a maple C profile neck. The Lime-coloured version has a laurel fretboard, whereas the 2-Color Sunburst model has a maple fretboard instead.

Lime has white plastics and the 2-color Sunburst had black plastics throughout instead. They both have a 6-saddle vintage-style synchronised tremolo with block saddles.

The HSS pickup configuration has a ceramic Squier humbucker in the bridge position, paired with two single-coil pickups. All are wired in a traditional Strat layout via a 5-way selector switch.

Surf Green

Next up are the two new Surf Green models and these look great for the money. They offer a more traditional Stratocaster model with three single-coil pickups or a Telecaster.

Again, these are both poplar-bodied models with maple C profile necks, and this time the Telecaster has the laurel fretboard and the Strat comes with a maple fretboard.

Both these Surf Green models have white plastics and pickguards, which really suits that ’60s style finish. The Strat also has the 6-saddle vintage style synchronised tremolo with block saddles, whereas the Telecaster comes with a 6-Saddle Top-Load Tele bridge, so no string through the body here.

Verdict

Always nice to see new colour options on these affordable ranges of guitars. I think these three new colour choices should please a lot of potential buyers, as they all look really good.

A bit of classic ’60s Surf Green and that bright Lime Green should be popular and then there is a more traditional 2-Color Sunburst, so something for everyone.

Overall, the Squier Sonic Series has been a great upgrade to the old Squier Bullet range and I’m looking forward to seeing what they do next.
