MGR/Anonymous's review"Squier Affinity Series Strat"

Squier Affinity Stratocaster HSS
I like rock, and some blues. I've been playing for about a year and half, but never with band

I bought this guitar at Guitar Center for like 120 bucks. I had been playing a cheap a acoustic as my first guitar for a while and decided I wanted an electric. I bought this one manly for the price since at the time I didn't even know how to work the pickup selector. I just liked the way this one looked with the classic big headstock and bright red paint.

Price, sound, qualitity. It was cheap, but you still get the strat sound (although you can certainly tell the difference between an American and this). You can sound like Clapton, or Hendrix, or pretty much anyone who uses a real strat. Every pickup is useful as well. Also being made by Fender it's basically indestructible, I've thrown this thing (kinda) with no ill effect. Also the sixties big headstock and red paint are hard to resist.

If you use the tremelo for much more than vibrato or a little dip be prepared to retune, also, mine did not come with the arm so I had to buy it seperate. The tuning machines are pretty good, but the tremolo still assists and knocking you out of tune, even when not used, though it is not too bad, unless the strings are aging or not well broken in.

Amazing for the price, for all the abuse I've put mine through, the only thing that is really damaged is an ever so slightly loose tuning machine that is only noticeable when there isn't a string on it. Also on the lower cut-out the pickguard comes off the body a bit, although storing picks there probably hasn't helped matters.

Cheap, well constructed, Strat sound. What more can you say, a great beginner's guitar. Much better than getting a bullet

MGR/Anonymous's review"Squier Affinity Stratocaster"

Squier Affinity Stratocaster HSS
I got this at guitar center about two years ago. I paid $149.99 for it. I got it becuase at the time I was really into Jake E. Lee of Ozzy and so I got it.

I like the look and feel of this guitar. Very wide range of sounds makes it great for players who are more for show than music. I like the shape cause it fits perfectly on your body.

I dont like the toggle switch or the whammy bar. The toggle always gets shorted. And the whammy is horrible. It throws it completely out of tune. but if you take off the cover on the back you can make it tighter. That helps a little. Or you can do like Eddie Van Halen did and put coins under it to keep it put.

Over all its a great guitar. Good for begginers and people who want to put on a show.

I love it for certain solos and songs. When I feel in the mood to put on a show I use this guitar.

MGR/Matthew Johnson's review"Squier Affinity Stratocaster"

Squier Affinity Stratocaster HSS
This was bought from George's music
for $170.00.This was bought because
I tested it out first,and it played the
same as an american Fender but it cost
$603.00 less.

It plays like a dream.It is gorgeous,it also had a super silm maple neck.Tremelo
bridge,three single-coil pickups and
5-way switching.
Positions:1-neck pickup
2-neck and middle pickup
3-middle pickup
4-middle and bridge pickup
5-bridge pickup
The top tone knob is for the neck pickup
and the tone knob in the bottom is the bridge pickup.The volume knob is for all
of the pickups.

There is nothing I don't like about this guitar.I hate heavy metal,so I am glad there are only single-coil pickups.The distortion is very smooth though,so all
you need is more wattage to do heavy metal.

This is one magnificent axe.Ok.first,let
me tell you something.Saying Squiers
aren't real Fenders is NOT true!It
even says Fender under the Squier name on
the headstock.It is exactly the same as
the one with only Fender on the headstock!
It has that good old 60's twang.It
also looked gorgeous.It had a slimmed down body,too.And you see,most affordable guitars are laminated.This can be one of two things.
1.It is made of ply wood.
2.It is made of cheap compressed varieties
of wood in one guitar.
The Squier affinity strat is SOLOD ALDER.
The body is contoured to fit who ever is playing it.It is a musical instrument as
well,not just a tool to make music with.

It is the perfect guitar unless you like humbuckers(pickups better for heavy metal).The pickups give no feedback(most single-coil pickups do.)It has a variety of sounds.It's a "real"guitar.However if you like both heavy metal and 60's rock,save money and buy an affinity fat strat.The have a humbucker at the bridge,a single-coil pickup in the middle and a single-coil pickup at the neck.

MGR/Joelio/ moleman's review"Squier Affinity Series Strat"

Squier Affinity Stratocaster HSS
I got this guitar in an affinity series strat pack from Billy Hyde Music blackburn for $700 (au)

I think this is a great guitar, it was my first guitar and i fell in love with it, it has an extremly fast neck and is terribly comfortable, i think squier have put this guitar together briliently!

the only thing that i dislike about this guitar is its pickups, they're perfectly fine but i like to play more heavy music on it and the single coils arnt as apropriate for that but its perfect for any other kind of music!

Squier have done a great job putting this guitar together, nothing is loose and it just feels right. It produces a great sound but its not as apropriate for heavyer music, (but just chuck abit of crunch gain on ur amp and its fine)

Great guitar have to be one of the most comfortable guitars ive ever played, bigginers should jump on this guitar because its curtainly will inspire you to play! buy it now
