Squier Affinity Series guitars are the best value in modern electric guitar design. This Affinity Series Stratocaster HSS delivers crisp full sound and style, along with a two-color headstock logo, single-ply "platinum sparkle" pickguard, and an eye-catching Montego Black Metallic finish. With single-coil neck and middle pickups, humbucking bridge pickup, and five-way pickup switch this strat offers a variety of tonal options that can handle anything from sparkly and bright clean tones to face-melting saturated distortion. The neck on this Affinity Stratocaster is satin maple with a smooth-feeling rosewood fingerboard equipped with 21 medium-jumbo frets and a standard 25.5" scale length. A synchronous tremolo bridge allows you to do vibrato and pitch bending while still holding tune in fender fashion. The headstock is Fenders vintage '60s style big headstock.
Squier Guitars have long been considered nothing more than an entry level instrument and for decades, that's all that they were. Nowadays, thanks to CNC Machine, peter trained employees, and simple finishing techniques, we are seeing the level of quality raising across the globe. Squiers are made in China and Indonesia these days are they shockingly fine players. While it is true, the metals on these instruments aren't as nice as the American Made counterparts. For beginners, this is not much of an issue. And for more experienced players, these guitars are a perfect way to incorporate an inexpensive version when you need something for maybe just a couple songs. Also the best choice for modification due to the wealth of after market parts available these days. Stop by the shop today and compare practically the entire Fender Guitar Line!
