The Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar is ideal for those who are new to the guitar and want an instrument that is a joy to learn on and keeps you coming back for more. Squier have a wealth of experience in crafting affordable instruments that punch well above their weight, and the Affinity Series Strat is up there with the best of them.
Sleek Strat' body
The Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster is shaped to the elegant ergonomically designed body profile that we've all come to know and love. The slender depth of the hardwood is paired with enveloping curves that establish a figure-hugging feel as you play. The freedom offered by the Strat body shape is what keeps guitarists coming back for more, and the more you play the better you'll get. The paintwork is protected by a coating of gloss, which preserves the finish for as long as possible to enable it to age gracefully over time.
Solid maple neck
Connected to the body via durable bolt-on construction is a steady maple neck, which is carved to the "C"-shape profile for a comfortable feel in the fretting hand. The generous 25.5-inch scale length encourages an articulate response from each and every note. Paired with the neck is a cool Indian laurel fingerboard, which is home to 21 medium-jumbo sized frets that are decorated with dot position inlays to guide your way. The neck and fingerboard partnership inspire you to perform confidently, whilst the double-cutaway of the body allows your fretting hand to reach the highest frets with ease.
Classic pickup setup
The Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster is equipped with a trio of single-coil pickups, which offer a vast tonal arsenal to play with thank to the 5-way pickup selector switch. A master volume pot and pair of tone controls allow you to tame your tone, whilst the height of each pickup can be adjusted to hone in on the exact sound you desire.
The Affinity Strat headstock is home to standard die-cast tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with steadfast precision throughout every performance. The 6-saddle vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge creates a seamless connection between strings and body for superb intonation and sustain, whilst allowing you to flex your vibrato skills.
If you’re looking to kick off your music career with a guitar that will be with you through thick and thin, then the Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar is the perfect choice.
