The Squier Mini Stratocaster is a great first guitar for players of all ages or those with smaller hands, its also an ideal travel guitar.

The small strat with giant sound, the Squier Mini is the 3/4-size version (22.75" scale length) of the Bullet. Featuring three single-coil pickups and five-way switching.

The comfortable "C"-shaped neck profile of this instrument (the shape of the neck in cross section) is sculpted to impart a vintage-style playing feel. The most prevalent neck profile shape, it’s remarkably comfortable and is ideal for all playing styles. Great looking and extremly comfortable to play, a rosewood fingerboard is a classic design element. Evoking the Stratocasters of the 1950s and '60s, this model features a vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge with six saddles for authentic design and performance.

Features:
  • 3/4 body size and 22.75” scale length
  • Maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and 20-fret rosewood fingerboard
  • Three single-coil Stratocaster pickups with five-way switching
  • Vintage-style strings-thru-body hardtail Stratocaster bridge

      This is an amazing guitar for small gigs. Its also very difficult to get sounding perfect unless you know how to do that which will require some skill but regardless definitely worth purchasing for performances.

      Comments about Squier Affinity Mini Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      I bought two of them for my grand daughters. Both came set up and tuned. Pickups give all the Strat TONE that we have come to know and Love. I was so shocked by the sound that I can truly say, "These mini strats truly are amazing" !! Worth more than they cost.

      Comments about Squier Affinity Mini Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      I've had this guitar for 3 years now. I still have it after all this time because it's special to me. It was my very first electric guitar. This guitar is special to me and it's probably the best beginner electric guitar out there. However, if this isn't your first electric, DON'T BUY THIS. Also, if you're over 18, it's probably not a good idea either, just because of the size. It's minuscule. But, it is a beginner's guitar. And so if you're not a beginner, don't get it.

      Got this when I was 7, now i'm 13. I still have it but, thats only because I never play it that it still works. Ask anyone at your local store, this guitar sucks. Take a look at the size and the price tag: This is a toy. Good for ages up to 9.

      Comments about Squier Affinity Mini Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      I used this guitar and it is okay. First, I noticed that the frets buzzed a lot, and that the pickups are very average. Also, the sound is too ordinary. It is a great guitar to have fun with. It's a bang for the buck and a solid guitar for beginner guitarists.
