The Squier Affinity Stratocaster Left Handed Indian Laurel Electric Guitar offers an affordable rendition of one of the world's most popular models. Borrowing from a design classic, the Affinity Strat is lavished with features that make it perfect for newcomers to the instrument, whilst enticing more experienced players with its pocket-friendly price tag. Whether you're buying your first guitar or adding to a growing collection, this is an excellent model that any leftie would love to play.
Awesome left-handed Strat
The Squier Affinity Stratocaster left-handed model adheres to the same curvy design that has made the Strat such a legendary model. The slim body depth is paired with shapely contours that establish a figure-hugging playing feel. Thanks to the deep double-cutaways the Affinity Strat makes it easy to reach the highest parts of the neck and fingerboard.
Lightweight alder has been employed as the body wood, which is lightweight and a joy to wield and reinforces the comfortable playing experience. Alder has the added benefit of generating a balanced tonal palette that extends from punchy lower mids to sparkling highs with a crisp clarity. For those who crave a versatile performer, the Affinity Strat is a fantastic choice.
Sleek neck design
Joined to the body is a sleek bolt-on maple neck, which is carved to the "C"-shape profile for a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand. The polyurethane finish maintains the integrity of the maple throughout the most demanding of performances. Married to the neck is a glorious Indian laurel fingerboard, which is home to 21 frets that are adorned with pearloid dots to guide your way in style. The medium-jumbo sized frets and 9.5-inch fingerboard radius come together to create a seamless feel when performing elaborate string bends and lightning fast sweep picking.
The Squier Affinity Strat is home to a trio of single-coil pickups that make the most of alder's tonal versatility. A 5-way pickup selector switch allows you to shift gears from chunky neck pickup tones through balanced middle pickup tones to tight and articulate bridge pickup tones. Whether you're performing country, jazz, blues or hard rock, these beauties can do it all.
Durable and responsive hardware
A 6-saddle vintage style tremolo bridge is fitted, which provides the means to perform pitch bend techniques. Six standard die-cast tuners are fitted to the headstock to ensure stable tuning throughout the most energetic of performances. A white scratch plate provides a nice, visual contrast to the classic brown sunburst finish.
The Squier Affinity Stratocaster is one of the most popular guitars available for very good reason. It is derived from a guitar design that is still available largely unchanged, some sixty years after it was launched. It is also one of the most versatile beginner guitars that you can buy. Ultimately, though, it’s a guitar that sounds great and plays just as well, with the same good looks as its prestigious ancestors.
