Affinity Series Strat® and Tele® Our Affinity series electric guitars are straight-ahead, affordable instruments ideal for beginners of all ages. The Affinity Strat and Affinity Tele have slightly slimmer bodies crafted from solid Alder (U.S. only) or Agathis. All Affinity guitars feature comfortable, 21-fret Maple necks with fast-action fingerboards and die-cast tuners.

The Strat features three single-coil pickups, a standard tremolo and 5-way switching for those great in-between tones. The Tele features two single-coil pickups and 3-way switching. Squier instruments are all backed by Fender, so why buy a copy when you can afford the real thing?

General Comments:
Well it looks and feels like a Strat, but its not a Strat.

What do you especially like about this product?
I had the arctic white w/ rosewood model and it looked great. Good paint job and the neck felt really nice and smooth. I got the Strat Pack and the little Fender 15 watt amp was a decent little practice amp.

What do you dislike about this product?
It sounded like crap. The pickups are aweful. The tuners are atrocious. I dont know if maybe I got a lemon or what, but I could not keep this thing in tune for anything. Needless to say, I dont own the guitar anymore.

General Comments:
i rated this guitar so high because the price, i mean seriously try to find another guitar at this price with this quality i am pretty sure its impossible.

What do you especially like about this product?
the fit and finish is great and the 5 way pickup selector switch works nicely, the quality for the price is amazing, mine had no fret buzz and everything was assembled very nicely.

What do you dislike about this product?
the pick guard was only one ply and the factory strings were bad they lasted me about 2 weeks and the input jack kept getting loose but no major problems all things i listed could be fixed or replaced very easily.

- very nice starter guitar or pack for beginners !
