WIN a Metallic Red Fender Squier Stratocaster!

Nov 1, 2013 at 2:16 PM | Rock Square News | By Rock Square

This month we’re rolling out the red carpet and offering up a brand new Fender Squier Affinity Series Metallic Red Stratocaster to our Community!

Since its debut in 1954, guitarists have relied on the Fender Stratocaster for its bright tone, comfortable body shape and playability to produce that distinctive Strat sound. From the 1960s to the 1980s to present day, Stratocasters have been a fundamental part of nearly every genre.

Exceeding musical limitations presented by its six-string predecessors, the Stratocaster has become the guitar of choice for many rock icons, past and present. While the list is essentially infinite, the handful of legendry guitarists who forever changed the music industry while employing Fender’s famous axe is worth noting.

Buddy Holly was one of the first rock ‘n’ roll musicians to strap on a Strat. After appearing on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1957, he inspired future players including members of the Beatles and the Monkeys.

While Buddy introduced the Stratocaster, it was Jimi Hendrix's virtuosic stagecraft that revolutionized rock ‘n’ roll. Paving way for guitarists to come, Jimi’s incendiary playing style educated the world on what exactly could be done with an electric guitar.

Whilst Hendrix was executing his audible assault on the music world, guitar god Eric Clapton was coaxing an equally arresting barrage of notes from his Strat. And although Clapton played numerous guitars throughout the 1960s, he cemented the Stratocaster’s status the moment he thrummed the opening riff to Layla.

It’s clear that these powerfully gifted musicians are inextricably connected to the legacy of the Strat and have produced many of their best works holding Fender’s classic axe.

While several variations of the Stratocaster have been introduced over the years, the traditional design has remained primarily untouched, and our Fender Squier Affinity Series offers that distinctive Strat construction with all of its legendary tone.

Modeled after the original solid body Stratocaster,  this Metallic Red Affinity Series Squier features Fender’s classic double-cutaway design, one humbucking and two single-coil pickups with five-way switching, smooth-playing rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets, six-saddle synchronous tremolo bridge and large '60s-style headstock – retailing for a sizzling $279.99.

Now, we know you’re wondering exactly what you have to do to paint the town red with this classic axe:
