This superb quality Squier Affinity Stratocaster hails from the Fender Special Run series. Constructed expertly by the skilled luthiers at Fender, this Squier Strat has been designed to offer superb sound at great value for money. The Stratocaster has long maintained its legendary status since its creation, and this more affordable Squier version brings together classic Strat features with the addition of two humbuckers.
For the body, alder is the tonewood of choice, thanks to its all-solid construction it contributes to the overall sound of the guitar. With the Affinity Strat you will still find that it keeps the classic double cutaway body shape, providing ultimate comfort and playability.
The advantage of its dual cutaways is also that it opens up the higher registers of the neck, meaning you can explore it freely for an enjoyable playing experience.
Maple is used in the construction of the neck, with a 25.5 inch scale length and a C-type profile for a comfortable grip in your hand. The smooth maple is topped with 21 medium jumbo frets on a rosewood fingerboard which has a 9.5 inch radius. To guide you up and down the neck with confidence are pearloid dot position inlays.
Unlike your ordinary Strat, this Affinity Series model from Squier is interestingly fitted with two black / cream humbucker pickups. These add a real intensity to your sound, with one fitted at the neck position and another at the bridge position. The dual humbuckers provide warmth and aggression to your sound, making it stand out as a Special Run model.
Controls include a 3-position pickup blade switch, a Master Volume, and two Tone control knobs, so you can attenuate your output with ease.
The Squier Affinity Strat is fitted with a 6-saddle vintage-style bridge, maintaining a firm connection between the strings and the body. This is joined by a synchronized tremolo tailpiece. At the opposite end of the guitar, the headstock is fitted with standard die-cast tuning machines to uphold tuning integrity with precision.
The black hardware contrasts beautifully against the colour of the body, the 3-ply white pickguard and white control knobs.
If you're a beginner, or perhaps you're looking for a fun, affordable Strat that stands out from the crowd, then look no further than the Squier Affinity Stratocaster HH FSR guitar.
