Fender Squier Mini Strat for just £123!

Do your kids fancy learning guitar but when you ask they say “I want a Fender!”, well here’s your answer. For just £123 you can grab this 3/4 size Squier Stratocaster and that’s Christmas sorted!

Fender Squire Mini Strat (v2), Rosewood

This beautiful rosewood mini strat is perfect for any children beginning to learn the guitar. With a shortened neck and smaller body, it gives ease of access and playability to youth players. Not only does it feel good to play, but it also sounds nice with three classic single-coil pickups and a smooth 20 fret neck along with a 5-way tone switcher.

The really incredible thing here is the price – Fender is one of the best names in the field and its Squier brand guitars are the perfect gateway in for people who may not want to spend the big money just yet. This guitar is in every way, a bargain and I would totally consider lapping it up!
