The best value available today in electric guitar design, Squier Affinity Series guitars deliver solid sound with slick style.

The Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster combines the classic features that made the Stratocaster a rock 'n' roll favorite: sonic flexibility, authentic Fender sound, vintage style. The Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster delivers solid sound and style, and premium styling including a two-color headstock logo and three-ply white/black/white pickguard. 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.

Other features include three single-coil pickups with five-way switching, smooth-playing rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets, synchronous tremolo bridge and large '60s-style headstock with an elegant gold and black two-color headstock logo that lends a touch of class to this instrument. The Squier Affinity Strat has all the vintage vibe at a fraction of the price. Case not included.

Features:
  • Maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and "large" headstock
  • 21-fret maple or rosewood fingerboard
  • Three single-coil Stratocaster pickups with five-way switching
  • Vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge
  • Case not included

      Comments about Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      I purchased the Squier Affinity Two-Tone Sunburst Strat with Maple Fingerboard. I have owned many Squier (and Fender) Strats and Teles before, mostly higher priced Squiers, and I can tell you this guitar is awesome. It is beautiful aesthetically and I was blown away by how good it sounded when I plugged it in for the first time. Tone is important to me as I write and record my own music on a professional level and I demand my guitar tone to be a standout. This guitar will always be a part of my collection. It's a winner, Fender/Squier!

        Comments about Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        This is a perfectly fine guitar for a person starting out. I personally would not use it for any performance. The fret buzzing can get a little annoying. I would save up more for an Ibanez or Dean.

        Comments about Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        This was my first electric guitar and overall,you can't expect anything better for the price. If you are a beginner trying to learn guitar, then I recommend this. However, it is not a guitar for playing in a band. The pickups are very poor and you will have a lot of buzz coming out of your amp with this guitar, which can be very frustrating. Overall, I would only recommend this if you want to try to play guitar and then if you decide to continue, you can get a better one.

        This Guitar is litterally the best one you can get for all beginners. For all of you people looking for a guitar to start on, get this on. But if you are expierienced you should look for a nice American made guitar. They can be a bit more pricy, but its all worth it. Better then the mexican ones. Again, if your just starting out, buy this guitar.
