Description

Squier Simon Neil Strat with a 10p-sized ding near the output (see photo) and a loaded pickguard upgrade featuring UK-made AxesRus Texas Blues pickups and blender mod wiring that utilises the middle pickup tone pot to include 2 extra pickup combinations (Alll 3 at once and Bridge & Neck together). This loaded guard was £175, so it's a great price! Includes soft case.

Here is what Squier said...

'The Simon Neil Stratocaster guitar puts the Biffy Clyro guitarist's own  personal touch on a Squier Classic Vibe series instrument. Based on Neil's Fender® Custom Shop Time Machine '60s Stratocaster, features include an alder body finished in Fiesta Red, vintage-tint gloss maple neck, Neil's signature on the back of the headstock and Biffy Clyro logo  on the front, three-ply mint green pickguard, vintage-style tuning machines and tremolo, aged plastic parts, and three custom vintage-style single-coil pickups with a mix of alnico III and V magnets-perfect for rhythm parts and rich, clear leads.

Scottish alt-rock trio Biffy Clyro is known for complex and interwoven guitar riffs, chord sequences and melodies, and an intense and exciting live show. Formed by guitarist/vocalist Simon Neil and twins James Johnston (bass/vocals) and  Ben Johnston (drums/vocals) in the mid-'90s, the band achieved  mainstream U.K. success with 2007 Puzzle and a subsequent string of chart topping singles.'
