Squier Contemporary Series

The Squier brand has always been a great way of getting a very reasonable quality guitar for a lot less money than a US or Mexican/Japanese built Fender. These Contemporary models offer some enhancements over the standard models, but still come in at a relatively affordable price point.

Contemporary Features

Modern-voiced Squier SQR pickups power all the models in the range. They also feature roasted maple necks, along with sculpted neck heels for better upper fret access. And, finally, painted headstocks with chrome Squier logos, where appropriate. The bass models get an active 9-volt preamp with controls for volume, blend, tone and bass/treble boost. All nice little tweaks to the formula and enough to set them apart from the regular Squier models currently on offer.

Colour Options

Colours on offer include Sunset Metallic, Shell Pink Pearl, Pearl White,

It is always nice to have more budget options available for musicians, though it’s a pity Squier compromised a little on the colours available. You can see all the new Squier Contemporary Series models in the official demo videos below.
