Fender’s iconic Antigua Burst finish returns to the USA, courtesy of Squier’s latest venture into vintage-inspired designs.

Squier, Fender’s budget-friendly subsidiary, introduces four exclusive Classic Vibe models featuring the divisive Antigua Burst finish. Initially launched in Europe, these limited-edition instruments are now exclusively available in the US through Chicago Music Exchange.

Drawing inspiration from the 1970s era, Squier’s Classic Vibe lineup includes two electric guitars and two basses. They all exude retro charm. Among the lineup stands the Antigua Bass VI, bridging the gap between guitar and bass with its unique six-string configuration.

This revival mirrors the resurgence of the Antigua finish itself, gaining traction among heavy rock, metal enthusiasts, and Beatles aficionados.

While the original Bass VI and Antigua finish overlapped briefly in Fender’s history, this exclusive pairing marks a new milestone.

Acknowledging the Antigua Burst’s cult following, Squier’s venture nods to its previous success with the Vintage Modified Baritone Jazzmaster. Despite varying tastes in ’70s aesthetics, Squier maintains consistency in its builds, featuring poplar bodies, maple necks, and Fender-designed Alnico pickups.

Squier’s reintroduction of the Antigua Burst celebrates nostalgia and innovation, catering to musicians seeking a vintage-inspired yet contemporary musical experience.

Squier’s Classic Vibe lineup has consistently garnered praise for its quality and performance. Each model offers exceptional value for money. With the Antigua Burst edition, this reputation remains intact, promising players pickups that exceed expectations for their price. Whether it’s the vintage-inspired ’50s Strat or the ’70s Thinline Tele, Squier’s commitment to delivering premium sound without breaking the bank shines through.

For those eyeing the limited-edition Antigua models, pricing details have been unveiled. The Classic Vibe Antigua Stratocaster comes in at $449.99, while the Telecaster follows closely at $469.99.

Meanwhile, the Bass VI, offering a unique six-string bass experience, is priced at $499.99. These US MAPs ensure accessibility for musicians eager to add a touch of retro flair to their collection without straining their budget.

Excitement abounds as the limited edition Squier Classic Vibe Antigua lineup becomes available for pre-order exclusively through Chicago Music Exchange.

Whether it’s the timeless appeal of the Tele Custom, the iconic design of the Strat, or the versatility of the Bass VI, enthusiasts can secure their piece of musical history.

Additionally, for those seeking a Mexican-made alternative, Fender introduces a limited-edition Antigua-finished Player Series Strat as part of the Strat’s 70th Anniversary celebrations, priced at $1,499.
