I start with a solid foundation – good neck, comfortable and light body, quality tuner keys, well-machined screws for saddles, intonation, etc. – then I go to work to make this the best cheap Stratocaster you’re ever likely to find..
Your new Squier Slayer Stratocaster guitar will have all the features of a Fender Squier Affinity series stratocaster –
5 pickup positions
1 master volume control
1 tone control for neck pickup
1 tone control for middle pickup
2 extra pickup positions (neck + bridge & all 3)*
Treble bleed circuit
Tone control for mid pup also controls bridge pickup
Mylar capacitor for tone controls instead of cheap ceramic cap
Full-size CTS 250k volume control instead of cheap import
Bone nut instead of Squier’s plastic nut
Roller string guides instead of flat friction guides
D’Addario #9 strings (stretched and intonated)
All frets are ensured to be level
Fret ends filed smooth
*- Those 2 extra pickup positions include neck + bridge pickups to give that Telecaster sound! The other extra pickup position is the ability to play with all 3 pickups for a voluminous, room-filling sound – great for when that second guitarist doesn’t show! 🙂
And most importantly –
Your Squier Slayer Stratocaster will be personally setup by Hank Castello.
IMPORTANT – If out of stock, you may backorder, but please allow up to thirty days before we ship. Demand has been heavy and we’re having trouble keeping the Squier Slayer in stock. Thank you for your patience!
