Exquisite tonal balance
Fantastic tone in any key. A wonderful blend of high-calibre tonewoods makes the Squier Affinity Strat a supremely versatile instrument that sounds amazing at any pitch. Enjoy full-bodied tones with plenty of depth courtesy of a solid poplar body. This will give each chord you strike dominating power and voice.
Solo with incisive sharpness. A maple neck and Indian laurel fingerboard combination can give each and every note punchy brightness. These woods provide a dynamic mid-range and scintillating high-end to complement the poplar's bass-heavy qualities. A brilliant all-round guitar to help you achieve any sound you desire.
Incredible playing comfort
Supreme playability. A C-shaped neck profile helps you play as freely as possible, for as long as possible. The profile is specifically designed to sit perfectly in the palm of your fret-hand. This eliminates hand cramp and allows you to practice for long periods to hone your skills, or exhilarate audiences with live performances that can go on and on.
Furthermore, the Affinity Strat's maple neck is extremely smooth. This allows you to glide up and down the frets with ease. You'll be able to play at rapid speed comfortably with a neck that's built for soloing and fast-paced playing. The sleek, comfortable profile is well-suited to players of all ability levels.
Superb Strat style
Striking and bold with a magnificent vintage feel. Stratocasters are well known for their sleek, incredibly attractive aesthetic. In the Affinity Series Stratocaster, Squier by Fender have crafted an instrument of unparalleled elegance that would slot comfortably into a gallery of history's most beautiful guitars. An eye-catching, sunburst finish gives a classic, cultured style to the instrument, and glittering chrome hardware adds even more stunning shine and gloss. A brilliant white pickguard provides a classy contrast to the colour, and the guitar is finished off with a two-colour "Squier by Fender" headstock logo in black and gold. Pure elegance.
The story of Affinity Series
Legendary and accessible. Squier, in their initial form, were originally string manufacturers for guitars, banjos, and violins. Fender were impressed by the high quality of their strings, and acquired the company in 1965. However, after a decade, Fender began to manufacture and market strings under their own brand name, and Squier became defunct.
In 1982, the Squier brand was reactivated as Squier by Fender, and began making lower-priced versions of Fender's classic, legendary guitars. The Affinity Series has versions of Fender models ranging from the Jazz Bass, Telecaster, Jazzmaster, and Stratocaster. Each of the Affinity Series instruments strives to maintain the classic, unbeatable quality of the originals for a price that's accessible for all. The perfect guitars for beginners and experts alike who aren't looking to break the bank for a fantastic instrument. Matchless quality at unbelievable prices.
