Peach Guitars | Squier 40th Anniversary models!

20 Mar 2023

1982, what a year! Chariots of Fire won the Oscar for “Best Picture”, Prince William was born, the Falklands conflict, Aston Villa beat Bayern Munich to win the European Cup and Michael Jackson released “Thriller”, the greatest selling album of all-time. Pivotal moments in time that, in their own way, helped to shape what came next.

But what has all of this got to do with guitars though? Great question. Well, 1982 also marked another important moment in time, the reinvigoration and re-birth of the now legendary, Squier brand!

Founded as the V.C. Squier Company way back in 1890, Squier were an authority on string production, crafting strings for violins, guitars and banjos from their Battle Creek, Michigan property. In 1965, Fender took ownership and eventually halted production and put the brand on the back burner. That is until 1982!

Since then Squier have been consistently bringing price sensitive versions of classic Fender guitars to the mass market. Crafted in various factories across Asia, Squier captures the timeless design and tone of Fender without the made in the USA premium. They have an enviable product line and a range of designs exclusive to the Squier name, they are a real force to be reckoned with and they show no signs of slowing down!

To celebrate 40 years of Squier Guitars, 2022 saw the release of the incredible 40th Anniversary Squier range, a selection of high spec Telecaster, Stratocaster, Jazzmaster, Precision and Jazz bass models.  

Packed to the brim with features normally reserved for much higher priced instruments, the 40th Anniversary guitars boast Fender designed pickups, engraved neck plates and anodized aluminium pickguards. For further spec information, make sure you check the listings to the side, you’ll get all the details you need there!

The perfect gateway to full-fat USA Fender guitars, the 40th Anniversary Squier’s punch well above their very modest price tag and offer a playability, tone and feel often reserved for much more illustrious guitars. We’ve got a great selection available in stock right now and we’d really recommend that you check them out!
