    Comments about Squier Affinity Telecaster Electric Guitar Pack w/ 15G Amplifier:

    To put things in perspective, my last electric guitar was a Gibson SG, which I purchased new in the spring of 1963, and sold a year later, when I went to college. OK, so I made a stupid mistake, but I needed the money for college.

    The affinity Tele is not a Gibson SG, BUT I have to say, I love this guitar and amp! It's perfect for a guy who wants a Tele for some country picking' and doesn't want to spend more than a grand to get started.

    Fit and finish is excellent on the made-in-Indonesia affinity Telecaster included in the pack (It's not the made-in-China Affinity Tele you can purchase separately). The Tele included in the pack with the amp, has a string-through-body bridge, and a 22 fret neck.

    The guitar is fun to play. The amp is more than adequate for a "practice" amp. Even the strap, gig bag, and picks included in the pack are more than adequate.

    My only negative is the clip-on tuner included in the pack—it's worthless. It just isn't precise. But since it's virtually free… no harm, no foul! I ordered a Snark, and when it arrives, I plan to chuck the free Fender tuner.

    This pack is a really great value. The guitar played great right out of the box. I should mention that on Day 2, I changed the strings that came on the guitar (Fender Nickel 9s) for Ernie Ball Slinky 10s. And that, as Robert Frost once said, has made all the difference.

    The Indonesian-made guitar that comes as part of this pack is probably alone, worth the price for the whole package. If you're in the market for an Affinity Tele, and even if you don't need the amp, get this package… and sell the amp. You won't regret it.

    This is a winner!

      I have to say that i'm impressed with the guitar and Amp.After unpacking plugged in checked tune (great tuner) and it played very well right out of box. But i did drop my strings one full turn each and the action is outstanding.Yes i would buy this setup again.Amp sounds very nice for being a small amp but is very loud if need be...

        I like the the guitar. It is a good value even considering the awful amp and the misnamed gig bag. Mostly been playing acoustic and switching between acoustic and the Tele is not a problem.

          Comments about Squier Affinity Telecaster Electric Guitar Pack w/ 15G Amplifier:

          I was really impressed by this guitar. I really really was. I've been playing it for a few days now and it's my favorite guitar I think I've ever owned. It was also the very first telecaster that I've ever owned.
          A lot of reviews said not to bother upgrading this thing but I don't really care. I'm going to upgrade this guitar until it is even better.
          The frets don't NEED to be filed down. They are OK. They're not perfect but they are OK and for the price OK is good! It's not terribly expensive to finish setting up yourself or to have someone else do it for you if you're too lazy.
          The tuners aren't locking tuners but they do stay in tune and if anything will help you learn to tune by ear.
          The bridge pickup has such a nice spanky twangy telecaster tone. Sounds a bit weird with distortion from the amp though.
          The neck pickup is what I ended up using more often than the bridge pickup. It sounds a bit "muffled" but that problem was fixed by taking off the casing. Nice looking casing.

          The paint job is always said to be "cheap" and "poorly" done but I think it's great. Eventually it'll come completely off and you'll have yourself a nice looking worn down telecaster. If you're into that.
          If not then yes, this is a poorly done paint job.

          The guitar tuner is honestly probably one of the best things about this deal. This is one of the best guitar tuners I think I've ever used.
          Nice.

          The strap was cheap but what do you expect? It DOES work. Let me say again.
          IT DOES WORK.
          EVERYTHING IN THIS WORKS WELL ENOUGH FOR A NOVICE AND FOR AN EXPERIENCED PLAYER.

          I would give this a solid 5/5.

          I love this guitar.

          The set up and electronics are very basic,
          but servicable, especially if you need a compact
          Fender Twin Clean sound. The higher gain channel just needs a bit of reverb and Delay
          and your off to the races !

          Two of these (Amps)in stereo with stereo Reverb and Delay and you will really be grinning from ear ot ear !

            Comments about Squier Affinity Telecaster Electric Guitar Pack w/ 15G Amplifier:

            I checked "experienced" in my description even though I haven't picked up an electric in twenty years. I've been playing acoustic for thirty, however. Take that into account when evaluating this review.

            Let me be clear: When I say I won't recommend this to a friend, I'm talking about the package, not the guitar. The guitar is very playable, the maple neck and fingerboard are nice, the thing stays in tune, and it has a nice sound...as long as you run it through an amp other than the tinny, noisy, harsh sounding Fender Frontman amp that comes with the pack. And BTW, forget about the "aux in" jack if you want to play along with your MP3 or CD player...it's pretty useless.

            I wish I'd gone with an earlier impulse and gotten the Affinity Tele as a stand alone with an even slightly better quality amp. But it's not an incredibly expensive mistake, so live and learn.

            As for Musician's Friend, I just want to say, I LOVE ordering through these guys. The package arrived a full five days before the "expected" delivery date. Maybe it's a case of the Commander Scott technique ("Ya nivver tell the captain how long the repairs will actually take, laddie"), but I was quite pleased.

            So, recommend the guitar, recommend the dealer, but spring for the better amp.

                Comments about Squier Affinity Telecaster Electric Guitar Pack w/ 15G Amplifier:

                This is a different guitar from the regular, "stand alone" Affinity Telecaster.

                Most sites, including Fender/Squier, give the wrong specs on this guitar. They usually give regular Affinity specs. (I see that MF has changed their description to a rather general one, which does not clearly indicate either.) This beauty is a string through, with 22 frets. It is from Indonesia, while the other one is (I think) Chinese.

                Although there are minor cosmetic flaws, the overall craftsmanship here is excellent. Level, smooth-edged frets, which are reasonably "clean" and smooth on top, too. Plays pretty well right out of the box, but is an EXCELLENT platform for modifications/upgrades. The ceramic pickups aren't as bad as one might think, so there's no hurry to change them. (Which was my intention, but why bother when they sound this good?) Classic Tele tones, if a little high output. Be aware that Tele neck pickups are a little dark, warm, muddy.... whatever you want to call it. But that is the nature of all true Telecasters. And this baby is all "Telecaster". Heck, I bought mine even though I did not need the rest of the package.

                The electronics/controls are the weak point. Cheap plastic knobs get all wonky the first time you remove and replace them. As another reviewer stated, the tone doesn't do a lot. In fact, mine went completely out twice. (I was already planning to upgrade the pots, so this was not a problem for me.)

                The bottom line is: I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this guitar, but also recommend that you plan to immediately upgrade the potentiometers.

                  This guitar is a very good deal! if you've ever seen a Squire for more, it isn't because it's any better, it's just a price mark-up. Also, if you can't decide whether to get a tele or a strat, the difference in sound isn't that noticeable with Squire... but the tele has a better look (to me). It may not be perfect, but it's the best you can expect from a beginner's guitar!
