Revamped series welcomes brand new model types with distinctive hot-rodded features.

Scottsdale, AZ (Jan 10, 2012) - Squier announces the debut of the all-new Vintage Modified Series. The new Vintage Modified series introduces new model types fully outfitted in retro-inspired, chop-shop looks, along with rich, roaring tone. The new series includes five models.

New to the series is the Vintage Modified '70s Stratocaster, a model that delivers the distinctive look of the 1970s Fender guitars. Available in all-Black maple-fingerboard and Vintage White rosewood-fingerboard, both models feature a large headstock, vintage-tint gloss neck and black plastic parts typical of that era.

The all-new Vintage Modified Telecaster Special puts a special spin on the model with truly modded features, including a full-sounding Jazzmaster neck pickup, and a vintage-tint maple Jazzmaster neck. This guitar is available in White Blonde and Butterscotch Blonde.

Also new to the series is the Vintage Modified Surf Stratocaster, a guitar made to crest the perfect wave of Squier sound. Features include tube-style pickups and classically colorful Surf Green, Sonic Blue and Candy Apple Red finishes that evoke the sand, sun and fun vibe of Fender's early-'60s golden age.

The Vintage Modified Stratocaster HSS comes with new features, including a vintage-tint gloss neck, '70s-style large headstock, powerful humbucking bridge-pickup tone and a new Charcoal Frost Metallic finish option in addition to Black and Three-color Sunburst.

The revamped Vintage Modified Stratocaster arrives with all-new features and its classic triple-single-coil tone. Other features include a vintage-tint gloss neck, '70s-style large headstock, and a new Vintage Blonde finish option along with the Black and Three-color Sunburst finishes.

Muse returns to self-producing on Will of the People, an album teeming with formidable anthems that navigate themes of fear, politics, dystopia, compliance, corruption, and other topics concerning the world order.

Decked out in black ninja-like uniforms with mosaic mirrored masks obscuring their faces, Muse opens their current shows with the powerful, sing-along chant of “Will of the People,” the anthemic title track off their latest album. From that song’s infectious shuffle until the very end of the concert’s encore, people are jumping out of their seats, and appear to be completely mesmerized.
