The Squier '51 returns in a hot new Vintage Modified model that delivers all the great style and features of the original value-priced screamer of the mid 2000s. All the 51s enormous tonal versatility is back, with a powerful SH pickup configuration, rotary pickup selector, push-pull coil tap and more.

Features include a basswood body, satin-finish maple neck with "C"-shaped profile, 9.5-radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets, single-coil Stratocaster neck pickup and hot humbucking bridge pickup, knurled "chrome dome" master volume control knob that also functions as a push-pull bridge pickup coil-selector switch (full humbucking or inner coil only for single-coil bridge pickup tone), knurled "chrome dome" three-position rotary pickup selector switch (in place of a tone control knob), single-ply white pickguard (black pickguard on Vintage Blonde model) and six-saddle hard-tail bridge. Available in Two-Color Sunburst, Candy Apple Red and Vintage Blonde.

I'm very fortunate to have one from the first run and I'm in the process of upgrading. Before I took it apart, it seems to have a Strat like flavor to it. The '51 represents a hybrid (to me), the best of both worlds if you will. I like Teles the most. Strats are cool too, but for some reason they don't move me. Got the bridge from GFS. Heard good things about it. We'll see. I've already got the neck pickup (V60 Suhr), but had to order a Tusq nut and a Seymour Pearly Gates for the bridge. My stuff gets here tomorrow, can't wait to put it back together.
