Squier Paranormal Series Toronado Lake Placid Blue

£349.00

The Toronado was originally introduced by Fender in 1998 and discontinued only a few years later. It has since gained a bit of a cult fanbase for its originality and unique looks and style. 

This year, Squier has brought it back from the dead as part of their Paranormal Series. It has retained a lot of the original features that made the Toronado so unique but this time it has a much more affordable price tag.

Body & neck

the Toronado features a lightweight Poplar body and is joined to a very comfortable "C" shaped Maple neck with Laurel fingerboard. The combination offers a very balanced tone with plenty of snap and vibrancy from the top end. Staying true to form the Squier Toronadfo features the unique 24.75" scale length which can be a little more forgiving as it has less tension so it's easier to bend and add vibrato.

Pickups and Hardware

Squier has installed two incredibly big and fat sounding Atomic Humbucking pickups on the Toronado. These offer harmonically-rich tones that handle everything from light crunch through to serious high-gain and also clean up beautifully with the use of independent volume controls. Other features include a string-through-body bridge, 3-way pickup selector and dedicated tone controls.
