Back in January, Fender kicked off the celebrations for the 40th anniversary of Squier in style, announcing a raft of cost-friendly electric guitars and basses, all of which pay homage to the “timeless classics that have defined the brand as a household name." And now, they're officially available and on the market.

The drop comprises 10 models in total – a Strat, Tele, Jazzmaster, P Bass and Jazz Bass, all in both Gold and Vintage Editions. The instruments incorporate a selection of sleek features, including anodized aluminum pickguards, Fender-designed alnico single-coil pickups, vintage-style hardware and more.
