SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Jan. 25, 2014) – Squier announces the release of the Squier 60th Anniversary Classic Vibe ‘50s Stratocaster and Eva Gardner Precision Bass.

This year marks the diamond jubilee of the Stratocaster, but players will strike pure gold when getting their hands on Squier’s 60th Anniversary Classic Vibe ‘50s Stratocaster. The instrument celebrates six decades of the world’s greatest electric guitar with a truly gilded model featuring an Aztec Gold gloss finish and gold hardware.

Eva Gardner has lent her formidable bass talents to artists including the Mars Volta, Lyra, Veruca Salt, Telstar and P!nk. Now Squier introduces the Eva Gardner Precision Bass, which features special graphics, Gardner’s clipper ship tattoo recreated just above the bridge, special 12th-fret inlay graphics and a thumb rest.

Other features include a basswood body with a gloss Black finish, maple neck with “C”-shaped profile and matching headstock, 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets and white pearloid dot inlays, split-single-coil pickup, tortoiseshell pickguard, domed control knobs (master volume, master tone) and Hi-Mass bridge with four brass “barrel” saddles.
