Stepping out of the early 2000s Fender lineage, the Squier Paranormal Strat-O-Sonic is back, redefining the quintessential Stratocaster outline with a bevy of appealing attributes. Cloaked in a chic Vintage Blonde gloss poly finish, this model is a modern tribute to a Fender classic, blending familiar design cues with bold new elements.
At the heart of this guitar's distinct identity is its pair of Fender-Designed alnico soapbar single-coil pickups. The onboard 3-way toggle switch and push/pull controls grant access to a wide range of tonal variations, with series/parallel and phase-switching options in position 2 enhancing the guitar's tonal versatility. From the sweetly ringing tones of traditional Strat to the hearty growl reminiscent of humbuckers, these pups cover a broad sonic spectrum.
Adding to the allure of the Strat-O-Sonic is its comfortably compact 24.75" scale length, which facilitates ease of playability and quick, nimble note transitions. Complementing this feature is the sleek "C"-shape neck profile paired with a swift 12" radius laurel fingerboard. The marriage of these elements delivers a playing experience that's smooth, comfortable, and inviting to intricate chord work and rapid-fire lead lines.
The meticulous attention to detail is reflected in the Strat-O-Sonic's hardware as well. The vintage-style tuners provide precise and dependable tuning stability, coupled with a graphite nut that further contributes to sustained note resonance. Moreover, the instrument sports a unique compensated wraparound bridge, promising superior intonation while lending a charming vintage flair to the overall design.
The Squier Paranormal Strat-O-Sonic stands as a testament to the seamless fusion of retro charm and modern ingenuity. This guitar represents an exciting journey through the Stratocaster's illustrious past into the future of guitar innovation, offering a rich, adaptable sonic palette that caters to the needs of today's explorative guitarists.
