Description

Details

The Squier Affinity Telecaster is one of the most popular electric guitar models in the world, and has been for years. The Squier brand has long been the home to affordable versions of classic Fender models. For beginners, who aspire to play a Fender, these guitars are a great first instrument. The Affinity range is its most popular due to the near-perfect balance of playability, tone and price.

The Fender Telecaster was the first commercially successful solid-body electric guitar. It was such a perfect design that it has remained pretty much unchanged since its launch in 1950.

A classic made affordable

The Affinity Tele shares many of the key features of its Fender counterparts. The body is the same, iconic shape, with a single cutaway, fashioned from solid alder. The neck is a bolt-on design made from maple, with a 25.5” scale length, 22 medium-jumbo frets, and carved to a comfortable ‘C’ profile. These are all classic Tele features.

The pickups fitted are two single-coil models. The narrowly wound coils of these pickups play a massive part in the unique sound of the Tele, giving a very bright, cutting sound with distinctive ‘twang’. Heard on countless records, from classic country, to blues, to indie, to pop… you name it, there’s a strong possibility a Tele has featured on it. The pickups are wired with a 3-way selector switch, and a master tone and master volume switch.

Six saddle bridge

A six-saddle bridge is fitted, which provides plenty of sustain and stability, whilst being easy to adjust. The guitar is finished in classic, Butterscotch Blonde polyurethane, paired with a black pickguard.

The Squier Affinity Telecaster delivers a level of authentic tone, great playability and superb build quality that staggering at its price. The fact that it retains the same good looks as its better-known sibling is the icing on the cake.
