How do I connect my Squier® by Fender® Stratocaster® Guitar and Controller to a guitar amp?


In addition to gameplay and MIDI use, what makes your Squier® by Fender® Stratocaster® Guitar and Controller so revolutionary is that it’s also a fully functional electric guitar that can be played on its own through any guitar amplifier.

Simply plug one end of a standard guitar cable into the Squier by Fender Stratocaster Guitar and Controller’s recessed 1/4” output jack, and plug the other end into the amplifier, just as you would with any electric guitar (see the diagram below).

Guitar to Amp Connection

When played through a guitar amplifier, it is not necessary to engage the string mute or to turn the Squier by Fender Stratocaster Guitar and Controller on using the rear power switch. Just plug it in, turn it up and start playing.
