Squier brings an early-2000s design out of the time capsule with the Paranormal Strat-O-Sonic, a rip-roaring electric guitar with a bold twist. With its alnico soapbar single-coil pickups, Vintage Blonde finish, and shorter 24.75" scale length, this Strat offers players a new and exciting take on a classic design. If you're a Fender fan but want something with a little more flare, look no further - the Paranormal Strat-O-Sonic is an excellent choice.
Unlike traditional Stratocasters, the Paranormal Strat-O-Sonic boasts a dynamic pair of soapbar single-coils that deliver a wide range of hot and sizzlin' tones. Don't be deceived by the absence of a third pickup, though. This model's 3-way pickup selector, push/pull controls for series/parallel operation and phase switching, and master volume and tone knobs grant it unrivaled sonic versatility. Whether you need sweet, mellow tones or something more throaty and aggressive, this guitar can adapt to any musical environment effortlessly.
In addition to its distinct sound, the Paranormal Strat-O-Sonic offers enhanced playability. The shorter 24.75" scale length provides a faster, more responsive feel, making blistering solos and intricate leads feel natural and intuitive. For players who prefer a traditional playing experience, the "C" shaped maple neck and silky-smooth 12"-radius laurel fingerboard offer a comfortable and familiar playing experience.
Spec'd out with 22 narrow tall frets, a compensated wraparound-style bridge, and vintage-style tuners, the Squier Paranormal Strat-O-Sonic stands in a league of its own. Adventurous players, lookout - once you start riffing on this one-of-a-kind Strat, you'll never want to put it down.
