Squier’s Affinity line-up represents the most accessible way to play a genuine Fender-inspired guitar. Perfect for beginner musicians, these limited edition instruments are the real deal straight off the bat - and something you don't come across all too often!
The FSR Affinity Strat is a distillation of the timeless S-style design. A trio of single-coil pickups, 5-way switching, and a gorgeous sonic blue finish to boot.
As you’d expect from a limited edition guitar, the Squier Strat opts for an alder body with a comfortable maple neck and medium jumbo frets. This is super easy to pick up and play, no matter your ability or preferences. There’s nothing better than a guitar that feels familiar as soon as it’s in your hands - the laurel fretboard is the finishing touch.
This is where the Squier comes into its own over other rival brands. The Affinity Strat is kitted out with vintage-style single coil pickups, pushing a low output, smooth tone. They'll provide you with the signature twangy strat sound in the bridge position and throaty, almost vocal tone on the neck pickup. Use the versatile middle position to thin out the sound on either end.
A 6-saddle floating tremolo is akin to the bridge first used for '50s Strats. It provides further accessible vibrato sounds to spice up your playing. Elsewhere, you get the tried and tested bolt-on neck construction, which is in part what gives you the snappy sound you want from a Strat.
