New for 2021 are:
Contemporary Stratocaster Special
This guitar sports a few interesting twists on the Strat format. Mainly, the middle pickup has been moved closer to the bridge for “a unique variety of dynamically responsive settings.” It also features a roasted maple neck and sculpted neck heel, along with a two-point tremolo.
The guitar comes in either black or Sky Burst Metallic lists for $429.99 / £349 / €399.
Contemporary Stratocaster Special Hard Tail
With the same unique pickup arrangement as the other Contemporary Stratocaster Special, only with a string-through hardtail bridge this time, and two different available finishes: Pearl White and Sunset Metallic.
$429.99 / £349 / €399
Contemporary Stratocaster HH FR
When there’s Neon Pink on display as well as a floating Floyd Rose Tremolo, things are of course going to be geared towards shred. Bright, classic rock tones can be achieved thanks to the coil-tapping five-way switch, and upper-fret access shouldn’t be an issue thanks to the sculpted neck heel.
The guitar is offered in Shell Pink Pearl and Gunmetal Metallic, and lists for $449.99 /£369 / €429.
Contemporary Telecaster RH
The bound roasted maple neck isn’t the only eye-catching thing about this Tele – with black hardware and a painted headstock, as well as a rail humbucker in the bridge and a Squier Atomic humbucker in the neck.
It’s available in Pearl White, Shoreline Gold, and Gunmetal Metallic, and lists for $429.99 / £349 / €399.
Contemporary Jaguar HH ST
This guitar is a rock-solid take on the Jaguar, with two Atomic humbuckers and coil-tap and series/parallel switching on its upper control plate. A sculpted neck-heel also adds a touch of contemporary playability to the design.
$449.99 / £369 / €429
