The Squier Vintage Modified ’51 Electric Guitar offers a completely new design using a conglomerate of other famous Fender models; giving you a truly unique look and musical voice.

The Vintage Modified Squier '51 delivers all the style and features of the original value-priced screamer of the mid 2000s. A multitude of Fender guitar styles all come together to create a hybrid that exudes total retro-styling yet packed with features that will satisfy both vintage buffs and modern stylists alike. The '51s tonal versatility is back with a powerful HS pickup configuration and updated, robustly flexible control scheme. Comfortable to play seated or standing, the Squier '51 adds a unique aesthetic and sonic touch to any guitar collection.

The Squier Vintage Modified '51 starts with a basswood Stratocaster shaped body, but its appearance is drastically altered by the pickguard, which covers both body horns and is based on the original 1951 Precision Bass pickguard. The electronics feature a single-coil Stratocaster neck pickup that delivers bell-like, blue tones you’ve come to expect from Fender. A hot Fender-designed humbucking pickup sits in the bridge position. This high-output humbucker will deliver all the power you need with tone to spare. The Squier '51 features a unique chrome dual-knob control system with one volume knob that has a push-pull feature that serves as a coil-splitter. The second knob serves as a 3-postion rotary pickup selector.

The Squier Vintage Modified '51 also features a one piece satin-finish maple neck with a Telecaster-style headstock, and a "C"-shaped profile. The maple fingerboard features a fast-playing 9.5"-radius with 21 medium jumbo frets. Rounding out the chrome hardware on this package includes a six-saddle hard-tail bridge, die-cast tuners. Case not included.

  • Stratocaster body shape
  • Maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and 21-fret maple fingerboard
  • Single-coil Stratocaster neck pickup, high-output humbucking bridge pickup
  • Three-way rotary pickup selector switch, master volume knob functions as push-pull bridge pickup coil-selector switch (full humbucking or inner coil only)
  • Hardtail bridge
  • Case not included

The perfect guitar for me!

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified ’51 Electric Guitar:

For me, this is the perfect guitar.
That includes price, features, and overall value.
The experience with Sam Ash was top notch
and that includes the help I received from David Weintraub
who provided the highest level of customer service.

My only concern was the shipping of the guitar in a single flimsy box
which I understand is how Fender ships them.
And while the guitar arrived damage free,
I would think a double box would be the better way to ship an instrument,
even an inexpensive one.

After having the guitar for a week, and playing it at least two hours each day
I must say, that it is quite surprising to think that a guitar at this price point
having been shipped over 12000 miles from half way across the world (Indonesia)
had perfect intonation,action was correct, perfect relief in the neck, no buzz, and smooth fret ends.
Even the factory strings are still full of tone.

No perceivable flaws in fit or finish,
and Fender has confirmed they are discontinuing the 2 tone sunburst model
so I am glad I got this one when I did.

While many choose to modify this guitar,
mine will remain stock with the simple goal of trying to wear it out
with many many hours of enjoyment.

So thank-you David,
thank-you Sam Ash,
and thank-you to Fender/Squire for a great guitar.

A versatile, good sounding axe for pennies

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified ’51 Electric Guitar:

The '51 is a budget-priced combination of many fine Fender features:

-The most comfortable solid body ever designed, the Stratocaster.

-A smooth and slippery maple fretboard on a comfy Telecaster neck. After decades playing rosewood, at last I know why Clapton prefers maple!

-A humbucker that coil-splits plus a Strat single coil to give many tone combinations.

-No whammy bar, encouraging you to bend strings with your left hand.

Just pick one with a good out-of-the-box set-up and action, and it's a perfect for anyone from beginner to pro, and espcially for yourself!
