The Squier Paranormal Strat-O-Sonic makes a triumphant return from its Fender origins in the early 2000s, incorporating a medley of captivating enhancements to the classic Stratocaster blueprint. It's a bold reinvention that brings a refreshing spin to a Fender favorite, now coated in a dazzling Crimson Red Transparent gloss poly finish.
The centerpiece of this innovative offering is its dual Fender-Designed alnico soapbar single-coil pickups, equipped with a 3-way toggle switch and push/pull controls. The options for series/parallel and phase switching in position 2 create a palette of rich, diverse tonalities. From the classic Strat chime to a thick, humbucker-like roar, the Strat-O-Sonic offers a multitude of sonic personalities.
One of the most striking features of the Strat-O-Sonic is its slightly shorter 24.75" scale length, which makes it exceptionally easy to play, perfect for fast runs and wide bends. The guitar's neck carries a slim and comfortable "C" profile, paired with a laurel fingerboard with a swift-playing 12" radius, facilitating effortless transitions and complex chord formations.
The Strat-O-Sonic's hardware is no less impressive. It features vintage-style tuning machines that ensure smooth and precise tuning adjustments, along with a graphite nut that contributes to sustaining the string vibrations. The compensated wraparound-style bridge, a unique fixture, ensures reliable intonation and offers a distinctive vintage aesthetic touch.
In conclusion, the Squier Paranormal Strat-O-Sonic is a testament to the blend of vintage and modern, celebrating the Stratocaster heritage while exploring the cutting-edge of guitar design. Its unique features and versatile sonic capabilities make it a standout choice for the adventurous guitarist.
