Product Description

The Affinity Series Stratocaster is the ideal way for budding musicians to enter the world of Fender guitars. Fender's Affinity series electric guitars are straight-ahead, affordable instruments ideal for beginners of all ages. The Affinity Strat has a slightly slimmer body crafted from solid Alder. All Affinity guitars feature comfortable, 21-fret Maple necks with fast-action fingerboards and die-cast tuners. The Stratocaster is the guitar that started it all, an iconic instrument used by countless greats from Jimi Hendrix to Eric Clapton. The Affinity Stratocaster is a 3/4 scale guitar designed by Squier to capture the distinctive feel and sound of the original Strat in a package ideal for younger musicians.

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

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (92 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great guitar for the price!!!"
Sound: I usually play rythem when it sounds great, but if u just use the bridge pickup it can get a little twangy sounding.(FYI I use a Marshall MG15 DFX amplifier) Feature: I think that for the price they did a great job with everything. Ease of Use: This guitar is pretty easy to use but sometimes the tone nobs don't make much of a differance even if thts the only pickup your using but having an ok amp can help with that. Quality: The finish on my guitar is great and hasnt worn at all even though I've put a bunch of use into it. I have heard some complaints about the frets sticking out to much on the fingerboard that can really be brutal after a while, but mine is great. Value: I think for the price its the best you can get. Manufacturer Support: Havent called them but this website has some great customer service. Ive only emailed them and they have been great. The Wow Factor: It has the classic stratocaster look without the price. Overall: I think for the price this is a great guitar, but as I said earlier it is only good for begginers and once you get better you are probably going to want a better guitar.

"Very good if you Mod it correctly."
Sound: With the stock pickups the sounds was not at all that great for the music i play. Hard Rock/Metal, I needed something which could give me a better sound suited to a lot of metal bands. Mine is about 7 years old now and everying is working great. I replaced the pickups with a Seymour Duncan Hot Rail at the bridge and a Dimarzio Crusier at the neck. This guitar is now a beast! It sounds incredible. With the Crusier at the neck you get a really nice vintage strat esque tone that gives an original Fender American series a run for its money. And the Hot rail is perfect for metal. Feature: Pretty good. For a budget guitar the features are pretty good. The tremelo i was surprised at how well it stayed in tune. I use it and abuse it just as much as i would a Floyd Rose and it stays in tune. TBH the reason i praise this guitar is because i modified it to my personal specifications. The tuners are now Klusons. The pups are all custom. The Setup is all perfect. Ease of Use: The neck is incredible. It is perfect for a beginner or pro. It is so thin and fits the hand perfectly. The maple fretboard is super fast as well. And the frets are very good quality with no dents or scratches Quality: Very good for a budget guitar. It amazes me it has lasted 7 years. I have other guitars an Ibanez and Jackson and i still use this and in some ways prefer it. It was my first guitar and i am still in love with it. Value: Very good value. I really like this and even though the mods i made cost more than the guitar itself it was still a great purchase 7 years ago when i first started to play. Manufacturer Support: Never needed any. But Fender are very very good. The Wow Factor: At first glance ppl look at the headstock and decide its respect value which is silly. A guitar should be judged for by its playability and sound not the name on the headstock. People assume squire are rubbish but i tell you. My guitar is better than any fender i have ever played. And im not even lying. It still looks great with a few dents here and there. Mine is orange with black pickguard and it still looks as good as the day i got it. Overall: I really like this guitar. It is perfect for me. If you ever fancy modding a guitar start with a strat. Turn a mediocre strat into a beast that will make purists spit at their vintage Fenders!
