    Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

    I've had bad experiences with squier in the past, but I'd like to say that this was not one of them. This guitar easily merits a price tag triple what it has. It's smooth to play, and has an amazing finish. I can bear the squier logo proudly.

    For the cons:
    Bad stock strings - They can be replaced easily so it's no big deal.
    Poor factory intonation - Another simple fix, nothing worth skipping this for.
    The little hole that you put the whammy bar into smells REALLY bad, so I don't recommend getting to close to it unless you hold your breath. Honestly though, if you find yourself in a situation where your nose is continually getting that close to the bridge, you might need to reconsider some life choices. Other than that, the thing is nearly flawless.

    Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

    I can review this guitar with just five words UN-BE-LIEV-A-BLE. The fit and finish of this guitar are every bit as good as a Mexican Strat, and the neck and frets are better! The Surf Green finish is flawless. As soon as I received it,I already had my files out to get ready to dress the fret ends,like I have to do on a Mexican Strat,but I didn't even need to,they were perfect! The pups are a little bright, but you can always roll the tone off,easier to take it out than put it in. I was thinking of sanding off the Affinity and Squire decals from the headstock, but I'm going to keep them on because I want people to know how good these guitars are. The Chinese have guitar building down to a science. Yep, they beat us once again.

    Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

    I bought my Affinity Strat in 2006 and I have always liked it. I am a big Eric Clapton fan so a SSS Stratocaster was a must for me. I was 17 and broke so the Squier was the most affordable option and I have gigged hard ever since with it but it has just kept on plugging. It's got good tone and plays fairly easily. The pickups are not as high output as many Fender vintage noiseless but if you want a guitar to put hotrod pickups and any other custom touches too...this one is affordable and perfect. Mine has NEVER disappointed me so if you want an affordable strat then look no further. Perfect first electric and gigging guitar for the seasoned player alike

        Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

        This was a very well built Squier, absolutely nothing on it to fix. I bought it in order to finally have a Fender based Shell Pink guitar, the color is good but not what old pics of shell pink had me expecting - I still wouldn't give it up though because it is a subtle pink that looks nice.

          Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

          What a beautiful color guitar. This makes a great gift for a budding guitarist friend of mine. Her favorite color is Purple.I have adjusted all the action and intonation as well as check the neck alignment before I present it to her. I do not want to let it go. I am sure updated pickups would make it sound like its American Standards Brother! The quality and sound as well as the way it plays is fantastic for the price. I would recommend this quality guitar to anyone, novice or professional.
