Comments about Squier Affinity Fat Strat HSS Electric Guitar (Assorted Colors):

I would describe myself as an intermediate guitarist who has grown with this guitar starting as a beginner. This guitar is about 4 years old and still is in great shape. My only complaints (real complaints) are that the tone knobs aren't responsive and there is fret buzz. Otherwise, the guitar is a great little novice guitar.

Comments about Squier Affinity Fat Strat HSS Electric Guitar (Assorted Colors):

I have owned the Black with metallic fleck pickguard for over 5 years. When I retired 3 years ago my family took me out to buy a "real" strat. I tried out a few and told them that there wasn't enough difference to warrant spending the money. I own a 310 SG, Hamer Studio USA, A vintage 12 string and 6 string and a CPX 700 yamaha. I always pick up this one. I will be replacing the Humbucker with a better one and do some rewiring so the tone control works with it. That's my only beef with it so far. The range of sounds you can get with this thing is unreal.
