OVERVIEW

A full-blown, weeping, screaming, rocking Strat with a phenomenal price tag.

The Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar has a proud heritage and a sweet price, representing the best value in solid-body electric guitar design. The contoured solid alder body is the same world-renowned style that fueled the fires of Hendrix, Clapton, SRV, and thousands more. The Affinity Series Stratocaster features a bolt-on maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard. Pure vintage tone comes pounding out of 3 biting single-coil pickups, taking on flavor from a classic rocking tremolo and 5-way switching. Genuine die-cast tuners provide unprecedented tuning stability in this price range. The headstock is the classic '70s "big" style. The maple neck plays fast and feels great. When you trade up, your Affinity Series Strat will be worth far more than any no-name copy.

Wanted to have some sort of strat around the house so I got the cheapest one I could find. Surprisingly, it looks, sounds and plays great! Intonation is good all up and down the neck, all pots and switches work as designed and the finish (or lack of finish) on affinity squire necks is really comfortable to me.

I bought this guitar while on a budget back in 2005. I paid less for this guitar back then, and they didn't have the sunburst finish, like they do now. I must say, for the price you can't beat it. It's a great beginner and practice guitar. The pickups arn't the greatest, and the tuning sucks. However, you get a little more quality in the craftsmanship. I love the neck and the fretboard, you can really dig deep; especialy for playing Blues/Hendrix/SRV. I'm ready to upgrade to a MIM for sure, but I will be deffantly holding on to this bad boy, and prolly mod everything except the neck.
