          Comments about Squier Affinity Series Telecaster, Rosewood Fingerboard:

          I play contemporary music at our church and it does everything I need it to do, had a really good set up , good tone , good quality and sounds great especially through my Line 6 Spyder 4. I have owned more expensive Fenders in the past but honestly the difference is minimal if any. Squier has really put good quality and workmanship into their instruments and it shows. For the money you would be hard pressed to find a guitar for a better deal and MF was very helpful with fast shipment.

              Nice set up right out of the box. I won't have to send it to my luthier friend for anything. I like everything about it. I am sold on the quality of the Squire Affinity line. And the price, are you kidding me?

              Comments about Squier Affinity Series Telecaster, Rosewood Fingerboard:

              So I got this guitar as alow cost option for modding, Discovered the Bridge pickup is fantastic, especially tuned for OpenG/DropD.I really like the Blue color, however the paint chips very easily, very disappointed with quality of it. The Action/playability is fantastic, very fast. Otherwise everything else is pretty good. Solid body, no other issues other than plastic jack which needs to be replaced with metal. Thinking about replacing Neck pickup with a Fitted humbucker with fatter sound. Proabbly going to change electronics package out with 4 selection switch, Tonestyler and stacked pots. If the paint continues to chip probably goin to strip the paint and clearcoat it.

                Comments about Squier Affinity Series Telecaster, Rosewood Fingerboard:

                I purchased the Squier Gun metal Grey telecaster Affinity to modify the pickups and to have a tele in my arsenal of guitars.The tele right out of the box is beautiful ,great finish the gunmetal grey is as nice as any mexi standard tele I have owned .The rosewood fretboard is really nice. The neck pick up sounds great the bridge pickup is a bit harsh. I will be keeping the neck and replacing the bridge pup. Over all you can not beat this guitar for weight, finish and playability' For the money how can you go wrong. I have been playing guitar for over 25 years have high and lower end guitars. I have always played squiers for gigs when I was younger they play great and you dont have to worry about them getting reliced. One Last thing Play through a tube amp for best results!

                  Comments about Squier Affinity Series Telecaster, Rosewood Fingerboard:

                  i bought this guitar to play at the beach and for a second instrument. i was prepared to return or modify it, but my squier tele was tops out of the box. neck was straight and met Fender specs. i chose to reset the action and put on new strings (Dunlop), according to Fender instructions, with the tools provided. now i cannot stop playing this instrument and showing it to my friends. i put on a nylon web strap and straplocks and it sounds great. the sunburst finish is beautiful. it doesn't sound quite as good or play quite as smoothly as my American Deluxe Tele, but the difference is minimal. When i think of the guitar i tried to learn on, it makes me cry. Players who are learning or want a second instrument, take note.
