I have played a few of the older Squier strats and was not impressed. I originally purchased this guitar with the intention of doing a few upgrades to it but I found I didn't have to do a thing. The tone is amazing and with very little to no buzz, even with the distortion kicked in. I have read a few complaints of them not staying in tune but that isn't the case either. I can play for a couple of hours and not worry about going out of tune. Squier has really stepped up their game and I would gladly purchase another one if I ever had to. They have gotten a bad rap in the past but I really think that those problems are mostly addressed now.

Nice guitar for the price point, but upgrade the hardware.

Good guitar at the price point, it gets alot better if you hot rod it with some new upgrades. Love the competition orange paint job, looks great.

Comments about Squier Affinity Series 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 Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

    I've been playing Strats for going on 50 years. I play professionally and have them from U.S., Mexico and Japan. My wife gave me a Pink Affinity as a surprise birthday present as she noticed I liked the color when walking through a local store. She doesn't really understand quality differences etc. so I always tell her not to buy me guitars. But she went ahead and bought this without my knowing. For the money (under 200) you couldn't ask for anything more. Great neck, perfect intonation on the entire neck, light weight, well balanced, beautiful finish, bell like tone. And yes I would take it to a gig. It's not a 1000. guitar but the the people listening to it wouldn't know the difference. hats off to Fender and their Chinese partners.

      Installed a set of Dominger USA single coils, new pots switch fender neck plate jack brass block and fender saddles sanded off squire label with 800 grit new spaghetti label. Fresh strings and setup. Voila a 300 guitar with more tone and sustain than my stock american standard with the all rosewood neck. Affinity has really stepped up their game. This was the most inexpensive way to get a cool pink strat. Body was not plywood It was 3 pieces glued together. Also weighs more than my all rosewood neck american standard

        Comments about Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

        I've bought quite a few Affinity Strats, a Telecaster and a Musicmaster and although I have been pleased with them all, they have all had at least one fret that was either too low or too high. This guitar did not have this problem. Because of the light weight, I play these Affinities and almost never use my real Strats anymore.

          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.

            Comments about Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

            OK I know its a Squier but really? I just sold an identical guitar that actually said "Fender" on it. This guitar, the Squier, is every bit as good looking and sounds better. It came with perfect setup out of the box including harmonics. It baffles me as a seasoned professional how good a guitar we can buy these days for these unreal low prices. I will use this in all venues, and I don't give a rat's ### what it says on the headstock. OK the neck on the real Fender was nicer looking but did not play any better, this one plays like butter. Even has good strings on it out of the box. I could not be happier and if you need a quality instrument that won't break the bank this is it. Oh and it has better sustain than the "real" Fender had.And MF throws in the two year warrany for no added cost and ships free. Unreal.

              Comments about Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

              I am a hobbyist and play mostly at home. I used to play in a band 20 years ago with a Korean knock-off telecaster modified with replacement pick-ups. After taking a break from playing guitar I recently got a couple of cheap humbucker guitars because I did not want to be bothered by any static noise of single coils. However, I missed the brighter, screaming, howling and twangy sound of single coils. I like the classic feel and look of the stratocaster and ended up picking the squier affinity because of the race red color. I was shocked when I unwrapped this guitar: The quality is great. It has a three-ply pickguard, good pots and the switch feels solid. It has plastic knobs which is standard for strat. Vintage tremolo feels solid. It played well right out of the box. Supposedly it has has slightly thinner and lighter body than standard strat that's a plus to me. I know people write about replacing pick-ups and hardware but unless you know what you are doing I would leave this as is. It sounds and plays great the way it is through my cheap multi-effect. The single coils are wired in a way that the static noise disappears when you use middle pick-up combined with either bridge or neck pick-up. This is a really great guitar all my other guitars ended up in their case stored away and I will probably get a second affinity for modifications.

              Comments about Squier Affinity Series 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

                  Stellar finish, absolutely fantastic smooth satin well crafted strong neck,reasonable hardware (might not last as long as a MIM etc ,but just change as they wear). Pickups give you the five position tones but are very thin and bridge PU is very glassy, missing low end (no big deal swap 'em for others). The problem I have is the trem will not go back to tune, seems to be getting caught at nut, tried a couple of things but it did not work, so you would have to change the nut for sure. other than that it is an incredible value. if you dont want to do some work consider the affinity tele. necks are the best feeling cheapo ones ive ever played.!!

                        Comments about Squier Affinity Series 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.

                            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.

                              I have played a few of the older Squier strats and was not impressed. I originally purchased this guitar with the intention of doing a few upgrades to it but I found I didn't have to do a thing. The tone is amazing and with very little to no buzz, even with the distortion kicked in. I have read a few complaints of them not staying in tune but that isn't the case either. I can play for a couple of hours and not worry about going out of tune. Squier has really stepped up their game and I would gladly purchase another one if I ever had to. They have gotten a bad rap in the past but I really think that those problems are mostly addressed now.

                                So much fun for the price. I have owned many Strats from the mid 80's to late 90's and this guitar is just as good. With a minor set up and some new strings this thing rocks. Super for a beginner or for an old rocker that needs an easy play guitar with a tremelo. In the long run upgrading the pick ups and tuners would make this a great guitar.

                                Good guitar at the price point, it gets alot better if you hot rod it with some new upgrades. Love the competition orange paint job, looks great.

                                  What can I say! It's a Squire entry level Strat. These are perfect for that aspiring beginner in your family.
                                  After a really intense set up and inspection I found it to be an OK beginner instrument. It is well built right down to full sized pots inside. The only real cheezy thing about it is that the neck finish is cheap.

                                  I bought one of these for myself in Sunburst. I was happy with it, though it will not work well with a Capo. This review is on the Blue model, and it is the 2nd one I bought. This time for my son, as his first electric guitar. I would give this guitar 5 stars, but clearly if you can not use a Capo on it? There something not right with the design. It plays fine with no Capo, in Standard E. It can take abuse. Over all this is a good Fender Product. It is just not the real deal if you want a serious Stratocaster.. Though it is a spot on replica with cheaper wood and parts.

                                      My father had bought me this awful instrument when I was at the age of fourteen in the year of 2001in spite of the kind of experience he had as a musician in World Beat music.

                                      Financial costs are never a factor if you are a musician.

                                      If you even consider purchasing an ELECTRIC GUITAR for a friend or relative, KNOW WHAT HE/SHE WANTS TO DO FIRST.

                                      Seventeen years of playing the guitar I strongly advise to purchase none other than an Epiphone G-1275 with a Vox AC15C1 Amplifier for a friend or family member if he/she just wants to be an "amateur" musician. Period
