Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster
The Squier Affinity Stratocaster borrows from the classic double-cutaway with ergonomically designed curves in all the right places. The slender depth or the body gives way to elegantly executed contours that establish a figure hugging feel to maximise playing comfort. Whether you're picked up a Strat before or not you'll immediately fall under this beauty's charms. The body is crafted using poplar, a lightweight tonewood that produces and cutting mid-range energy with crisp and clear highs. The sumptuous paintwork is protected by a coating of gloss polyurethane and partnered with a cool 3-ply black pickguard for good measure.
Connected to the body is a supple yet supportive maple neck, which is carved to a "C"-shape profile for a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand. The 25.5-inch scale length optimises string tension to promote a brighter sounding response from the strings. The natural satin finish along the back of the neck encourages a free playing feel for lightning fast speed. Paired with the neck is a glorious Indian laurel fingerboard, which is home to 21 medium-jumbo frets that are decorated with pearloid dot position inlays to guide your way in style. Thanks to the truss rod head adjust, subtle adjustments can be made to ensure that your neck performs flawlessly.
The Affinity Series Stratocaster HSS breaks from the standard trio of single-coils and is equipped with a humbucker in the bridge position, and a pair of single-coils fitted between the neck and middle positions. The single-coils respond with an attentive and vibrant character, whilst the humbucker goes further still by producing a fatter yet equally tighter response. If you're a player that wants the best of everything and is likely to shuffle between genres as diverse as country and hard rock, then this is the setup for you.
The Squier Affinity Strat is host to standard die-cast tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with dutiful precision. The body is home to a 6-saddle vintage-style synchronised tremolo bridge, which offers accurate vibrato control whilst optimising intonation and sustain throughout every performance.
Frontman 15G combo amplifier
The Fender Frontman 15G guitar amp combo is a beefy little 15-watt amp that delivers a confident blast via a specially designed 8-inch speaker. Though it may be small, it is definitely not lacking in character and lives up to its lofty Fender name. Thanks to the closed-back cab design, the mid to low-end output is given plenty of room to manoeuvre, whilst the high-end chime is as clear as a bell. So, whether you're laying down weighty palm-muted chops or soaring through some sleek chicken pickin', everything sings beautifully. The Frontman features both clean and overdrive channels that will satisfy the demands of all players.
Whether you're jamming with friends or practising at home, the aux input allows you to connect an external sound source for playing along with as a back track or simply kicking back and riffing along to some of your favourite tunes. The headphone jack is perfect for those times when you just want to settle in and practise discreetly.
The cabinet itself offers considerable protection to the circuitry inside, whilst the speaker cloth takes on the vintage "Blackface" aesthetic. The reinforced corners offer protection from knocks when you're on the go.
