Squier have recently dropped the price of their beginner guitar and bass packs so this pack is now only ! There's never been a better time to start learning the guitar!
The Fender Squier Strat is the world's biggest selling guitar. The Squier Affinity HSS Strat plus G-Dec Junior Amp is the top of the range Squier starter electric guitar pack. The Squier Affinity HSS Strat is the same as the regular Affinity Strat, except that the HSS version comes with a humbucking pickup in the bridge position - this gives the guitar more "punch" and is great when used with an overdirve/distortion sound.
The Fender G-Dec Junior is also an excellent amp. As well as having 15 watts of power and having a number of different amp settings, it also has some FX built in and comes with play-along built-in backing tracks! This is perfect for any beginner that wants something that will last and be fun to practice with.
Here's what Squier say about the Affinity HSS Strat Pack
This set features a great-sounding, sweet-looking and easy-playing Squier Affinity Strat HSS guitar with a humbucking bridge pickup; plug it right into the included 15-watt G-DEC Junior amp with loads of amp types, effects, backing loops, auxiliary input, headphone jack and many other cool features. Accessories include a guitar strap, gig bag, guitar cable and pick sampler-everything you need to Stop Dreaming and Start Playing!
