Squier Paranormal Toronado® Laurel Fingerboard
Lake Placid Blue
Originally introduced by Fender in 1998, the Toronado® became a fresh face in the crowd of offset-style guitars with its unique curves and crushing tone. The Paranormal Toronado delivers several player-friendly features including a slim “C” shaped neck with a slick gloss finish, a string-through-body bridge for solid string stability, individual volume and tone controls for a wide range of tonal variety, and an easy-playing 24.75” scale length. With its otherworldly looks, transcendent playability and earth-shattering tone, this model will transport any player into a Paranormal realm.
Squier's Paranormal Toronado features a lightweight Poplar body that serves as a balanced tonal foundation for its potent humbucker pairing. The body is joined to a comfortable 'C'-shaped Maple neck, which brings out plenty of upper mid-range bite and top-end vibrancy - giving notes a snappy and immediate response.
Playable 24.75" Scale Length
The original Fender Toronado was unique for its 24.75" scale length; a feature associated with guitars made by Fender's main rival brand. Shorter than Fender's customary 25.5" scale length, a 24.75" scale gives the instrument's strings a more forgiving feel as they have less tension. The Squier Paranormal Toronado adheres to this formula, meaning that its strings feel easy to bend and apply vibrato to!
Squier Atomic Humbuckers
The Paranormal Series Toronado is a fat-sounding electric guitar, thanks to a double-dose of Squier's Atomic humbucking pickups. Delivering a full and harmonically-rich sound with plenty of output, these powerful pickups can handle overdrive and even crushing high-gain, yet clean up beautifully when you roll back their independent volume controls.
Use the 3-way pickup switch to select the barking bridge pickup, the warm neck humbucker, or both for a more balanced voice. Further control is provided via the dedicated tone controls for each pickup too, letting you dial back any harsh treble frequencies.
