These Newer Affinitys Are Great Guitars !

I had to sell all of my gear 3 months ago due to financial difficulties in my family. We are now okay and I was able to go back out and buy some new gear at a certain retailer whose name shall go unannounced on here. Needless to say , I wanted to go back to playing a Strat seeing that I'm heavily into the blues , so I decided to check out the Squier stuff and believe it or not, these new Affinity models with the new colors blow away the older models in both sound and also appearance as well. These have a 3 ply pickguard which the older models didn't have and they also have the Squier logo in Gold which is much more classier as well. The stock pickups have a much more ballsier sound to them than the Standard Squier Strats and plus they're a tad lighter as well which my 55 year old back much appreciates. I bought the Surf Green model which just looks amazing and sounds just as good as a Fender MIM Standard Strat IMO. Buy one of these before Squier goes and changes these to something else. They're that great !

WHAT'S GOOD ABOUT THE AFFINITY STRAT?

The guitar community knows all too well about GUITAR SNOBS. The internet is full of them. Perhaps all guitar players have had a dose of GUITAR ELITISM. Even when you want to buy a name brand just not to be associated with a lesser nameplate you are indulging in GUITAR SNOBBERY. Of course, most of us outgrow that nonsense. In my years of playing I have owned (one at a time) some of the great vintage guitars going. I will name a few: a 1952 Fender Esquire in mint condition; a 1970 LES PAUL CUSTOM REISSUE; 3 or 4 1963 Rosewood Teles and Strats; a 1965 ES 335; a 1966 Pelham Blue !!!! Epiphone Casino...well, you get the idea. Which now brings me to the task at hand: WHAT IS GOOD ABOUT THE AFFINITY STRAT? Well, 1) The body is made of alder (not agathis, or basswood, or lalapoolu wood. 2) the thinner body is a joy to embrace and has the bonus of being less weighty. 3) it is one of the less costly strats that you can get in exotic colors. 4) the thinner neck is sweet. Well, that is a good start right there. Okay so the hardware is chintzy (I just bought a new one in Surf Green and when I tried to remove the back tone knob to allow me to get the plastic off of the guard...not only did the knob come off but so did the tone pot shaft...LOL. So now that tone pot is useless.) But you know what? I don't care because even though these are not state of the art pickups for some reason they sound good. And get this I am pairing this with a Vox Pathfinder 10...yes, you heard right...a $79 amp teamed with a $200 guitar...and while you may think I have flipped....let me tell you...THEY SOUND GREAT TOGETHER.And here's the thing: THE SAME PITFALS THAT CAN BEFALL A CHEAP GUITAR CAN BEFALL AN EXPENSIVE GUITAR. NOW WHAT IS GONNA HURT MORE? 1) YOUR $3000 STRAT NECK TWISTING OR YOUR $200 STRAT NECK TWISTING? DO THE MATH....

A Beginner Guitar

I actually didn't buy this guitar to play. I purchased it as a piece of wall art. If I wanted it as a players guitar I would have exchanged it due to an issue with the truss rod. That being said the guitar is playable and after adjusting the pickup height and minor setup it sounds okay. Definitely not comparable to my American Standard Strat, but that isn't what it was intended for. Another flaw is on the side edge of the Rosewood fingerboard. It looks like some type of colored liquid substance or paint was used in an attempt to match the Rosewood. Now for the good points. The Surf Green color is beautiful, and so far the tuners seem to do an adequate job. It makes a great looking piece of wall art that I can pull down to play if I wanted to. This guitar would be fine for a beginner or someone who wants to hang it on the wall as decoration for a studio. The price is right for what you get.
