Squier Paranormal Strat-O-Sonic Guitar, Laurel Fretboard, Black Pickguard, Vintage Blonde
Making a comeback from its early-2000s Fender® origins, the Strat-O-Sonic brings several satisfying ingredients to the Stratocaster® recipe for a truly special Squier®. Featuring dual Fender-Designed alnico soapbar single-coil pickups with 3-way switching, push/pull controls for series/parallel and phase switching in position 2, a short and easy-to-play 24.75" scale length and a compensated wraparound-style bridge, this Paranormal model delivers bold, new flavor to a Fender favorite. Other player-friendly details include a slim and comfortable "C"-shaped neck profile with a fast-playing 12” radius fingerboard, a gloss neck finish for a slick yet confident feel, and vintage-style tuning machines for smooth, accurate tuning.
