Description

Dressed in new, eye-popping finishes, these Fender-designed Stratocaster guitars have a great look and feel. With a contoured alder body, bolt-on maple neck with rosewood fingerboard and late '60s headstock, three single coil pickups and standard tremolo system, the Affinity Series Strat guitar has all the vintage vibe at a fraction of the price.

This is an amazing guitar for the price I can tell you that. As long as you keep the components maintained, I.e. Pickup height, temolo settings, and bow of the neck. This was my first ever guitar and it's gonna be almost three years since I have had it, I believe I got it for my 15th birthday, I am 18 now. Since then my playing style has formed into something that does not fit my strat, I find the scale length to be too long to palm mute. But when I can palm mute I barelly can play the first fret. I love fender for their tone, but I'm leaving fender to my blues/country/slide play. And will possibly go with gibson for their shorter scale length.

Product Experience I've tried it Closest Store Ottawa Ontario
I rented this guitar and it was the first electric I had ever rented/bought. Honestly, I didn't think much of the sound quality but maybe that's because lots of people had used the guitar before me or because the amp I used was very cheap and simple. Overall, it was pretty good, I guess.(remember, I'm not an experienced electric guitarist.)

Outstanding guitar for the money

I went into Long & McQuade looking for a $400 to $800 guitar, and tried a bunch of guitars, including various Fender Tele's, Stratocasters, an Epiphone Les Paul, and a Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker. Apart from a $1200 Telecaster, this was the most comfortable and best set up guitar I played. The matte next and fingerboard is comfortable, fast, and ergonomic. The frets are well rounded at the edges and don't buzz. It has a nice clean and crisp sound, and can achieve a wide variety of tones. This is a $200 guitar that feels like one 4 times its price. Outstanding value for your money.

I bought 1 of these for $90 used and it plays just fine. The action is a little hard but once you develop ?calasses? on your fingers it's a mute point. Great guitar for the money.

Affinity FAT strat (HSS pickups)... love it
Features Quality
Value Overall
Product Experience I own it Closest Store Mississauga Ontario
I bought the Affinity Fat strat - having a humbucker at the bridge, and two single coils - this offers a really nice blend of sweet and sharp clean sounds from the singles, and a more warm/edgy sound from the humbucker. I'm going to open it up someday to see if I work in a coil tap with that humbucker (if not I might replace it with a humbucker that can be coil-tapped), but on the whole it's an amazingly playable guitar, great action, great neck, good enough sounding stock pickups to keep me happy for a long time. Inexpensive enough to be worth modifying at some point, but completely an amazing value for the money right out of the box. Personally, I love it for the clean tones... makes me want to seriously get into country music.

The neck is straight, The action is low. the intonation was perfectly set up from the factory. It stays in tune if you don't touch the whammy. The traditional 3 pick up/5 way switch gives you the signature strat sounds. Really pleased to add it to the quiver.

This guitar for the price is a great deal. I'm learning how to play and this guitar is comfortable and easy to play. The tone pots on mine didn't work but L&M does a free setup on new guitars so i'm having it done as well as getting a bit heavier strings put on it (Ernie Ball 11-48). Overall I am happy with this guitar and will be playing it for a long time to come.

I have been playing for 12 years as of writing this and i can honestly say i absolutely LOVE playing this guitar! I own an american fender strat and its great but the squier can more than hold its own with its ease of play, great tone on all pickups, build quality, style, and lets not forget price! I play all different kinds of music from punk to metal to all kinds of slow rock etc and this guitar works for all of it. It will undoubtedly be hammered on and heavily abused for years to come.

Affinity Strat Review
Features Quality
Value Overall
Product Experience I own it Closest Store Mississauga Ontario
I bought this guitar with a Frontman G15 combo and I was really surprised the quality that this guitar brought me for such a low price. I had this guitar for about three years and it really helped me develop as a player. Only downside was that the low E string would not stay in tune, but that could be fixed by tigghtening the tuning pegs.

awesome entry level guitar, im not sure how much the quality has changed on the affinity strats since i had one. i've never had any issue with these. unlike plywood guitars these WILL NOT fall apart or have extreme amounts of ware after a year of playing. if you are starting out or looking to see how you like the feel of a strat i suggest you get one of these.

Bought it second hand as I am just learning and wanted an electric/amp combo. Sounds great and amp has more than enough power to rock the house.

I love this guitar. It has amazing tone with it's good pickups. It is also very comfortable. I am actually surprised at how it sounds at high gain. It is a great guitar for the blues and rock'n. I like to use it for that good old 80s Hair Metal and hard rock and it sounds amazing for that. The best part about it is how the neck feels. I love mine, and I will keep it forever. You can pretty much play anything on it.
