Squier 40th Anniversary Stratocaster, Gold Edition, Lake Placid Blue

GAK Overview

Celebrating 40 golden years of accessible, high-quality, stylish guitars.

Over the years, Squier has become renowned for their cost-effective substitutes to the Fender range, offering superb tone and legendary Fender design at an affordable price point. Celebrating 40 years of accessible entry-level guitars, the Gold Edition Squiers add an extra amount of glam and style to your playing with their luxurious matching gold hardware and alluring gloss finishes.

Stylish Construction

The Squier Stratocaster Gold Edition’s body is crafted from solid Nyatoh. This tonewood offers smooth highs, warm mids and punchy lows that are akin to Mahogany. The resonant Nyatoh body is paired with a durable Maple neck that boasts a comfy modern “C” profile, a smooth Indian Laurel fretboard, 21 frets, and vintage-style Stratocaster headstock. The Squier Gold Stratocaster is a truly addictive instrument to play, thanks to its exceptional playability, contoured body shape and comfortable neck profile.

Classic Strat Electronics

The Squier Stratocaster Gold Edition features three Fender Design Single-Coil pickups with Alnico 5 Magnets that deliver the beautifully crisp and articulate tone that you’d expect from a genuine Strat. The 5-way selector switch, volume and tone controls allow you to conjure a versatile range of tones that can be tweaked on-the-fly.

Quality Hardware

The Squier 40th Anniversary Strat is built with a 6-saddle string-through-body bridge and sleek vintage-style tuners, ensuring exceptional tuning stability and precise intonation on stage or in the studio. The tremolo bridge features a smooth action for expressive vibrato effects.

Other visual appointments include the Gold Anodized Aluminum Pickguard, gold hardware, a special 40th Anniversary neckplate and a vintage-inspired headstock logo.

If you’re looking for a seriously stylish Strat that looks and feels every bit as good as it sounds, the Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Edition Stratocaster should be on your must-try list.
