Squier Simon Neil Stratocaster
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. Highly anticipated album Only Revolutions was released in November 2009.
