The Squier Mini Strat solidbody electric guitar makes a great instrument for beginners, younger players, and travelers. This 3/4-size instrument might be cute, but it’s also capable of becoming a tone monster when you plug it in. Like its big brother, the Squier Bullet, the Mini Strat uses three single-coil pickups, volume and tone controls, and 5-way pickup switching to give you an array of great sounds. It also includes a comfortable maple neck, an Indian laurel fingerboard, and a chrome-plated hardtail bridge. It’s perfect for smaller hands and sized just right for taking on the road.
Whether you’re a parent who’s outfitting your budding rock star with a first electric guitar or a seasoned player looking for a travel-ready Stratocaster, the Squier Mini Strat is a fantastic 6-string option. The guitar’s 22.75″ scale length makes finger stretches much easier. Little hands will love the slimmer neck profile. And the Mini Strat’s body is about 3/4 the size of a full-size Stratocaster, making it comfortable and easy to fit into overhead airplane compartments.
Big Strat tone
Like its bigger cousins, the Squier Mini Strat is loaded with the bell-like tones of three single-coil pickups. This electronics arrangement offers some of the most popular and iconic guitar tones in history. Combined with a 5-way pickup selector, a single volume control, and one tone knob, you’ll be nailing the familiar tones of legendary Strat players, such as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Ritchie Blackmore.
