Classic Body Style With a Fancy Top

This Squier has the same double-cutaway body style that Fender made famous in the ’50s. It’s made of poplar, a balanced tonewood that allows the pickups to shine. The flame maple veneer top gives this Strat extra elegance.

Easy-to-Play Neck

The FMT HSS has a maple neck with slim C profile, which means the back is shaped like a rounded oval. It’s a comfortable fit for the fingers, making it easier to form chords and solo. The maple fretboard adds snap to every note. Check out that headstock logo, too—the chunky block text is straight from the ’70s.

Versatile Pickup Combination

This Squier Stratocaster FMT HSS is loaded with three pickups for sonic versatility. The “H” stands for “humbucker”—it has a more aggressive sound suitable for classic rock to slow blues, metal and more. The “SS” refers to the two single-coil pickups, which have a brighter, tighter tone. This HSS configuration makes the Squier Strat fit into all genres of music.

Updated, Fail-Safe Hardware

The Strat FMT HSS has updated hardware that makes it easier for beginners to play. The tremolo unit mounts to the body in two points, rather than the traditional six. This creates less friction for more tuning stability. Thanks to their split-shaft design, it’s a cinch to change strings—just thread each through the body of the guitar, insert the loose end into the tuners and turn to tighten. Unlike other guitars, this design eliminates sharp string ends that can poke fingers and damage gig bags. A case for the Squier Stratocaster FMT HSS is available separately.
