I own 24 guitars, ranging from Ernie Ball, Peavey, Gibson, and Fender, but this little Tele is my favorite! I recently started getting pretty heavy into country and flatpicking and just wanted a tele mostly for the tone, and when I picked this little guy up...I was impressed. As far as the play-a-bility of the guitar, it matches my Wolfgangs and Axis. The durability is comparable to some of my high priced Gibsons. I'm leaving it stock....no need to change anything. The pick ups are fine, the neck is fast, and the hardware is good. I'm getting another one in a different color soon as I get some extra cash.

The body felt okay. I only tried it for a couple minutes. Like the title says, the frets are killer, but not the way you'd expect. From the second I picked it up, I knew that they had cut some corners. What I didn't know was that they had done this buy not cutting what really mattered. The frets. They were so sharp that I cut my thumb while feeling the neck. I swear these things could slice through my wrists (which I'd do if I had to play exclusively on this guitar for the rest of my life). The rest of the guitar felt decent for the price. This thing would make a good weapon though. A club and a sword in one.

Perfect Guitar for under $200

By Fendercrazy

from Chicago

Comments about Squier Affinity Series Telecaster Special Electric Guitar:

I just picked this guitar up last night and I was really impressed with it. But first off you must know one thing, the switch stinks and I wish Fender would just put on a better one. So just spend the extra $14 and get a new one. The neck is perfect for me because I have smaller hands. The string height right out of the box is very good and it plays like butter. The sound unplugged is great and just as good thru an amp. For a guitar to be priced like this is fantasic and it's a grerat deal. One last thing is that on the sides of a couple of the frets need to be filed down just a touch. Other than that it's a great value.

GREAT DEAL!!!!!

By Felipe Mendoza

from Mexico

Comments about Squier Affinity Series Telecaster Special Electric Guitar:

i̴��m a player for about 5 years and i always liked Fender Telecasters but i never had the money to buy one so i started looking to Squiers and i saw this one and i fell in love. the finish is great, has a fast neck, sound is almost the same as a Fender, doesnt get out of tune and even when its not plugged in to an amp its sounds great i recomend it for starting players and advance players you wont believe what your getting for the price

Comments about Squier Affinity Series Telecaster Special Electric Guitar:

i bought this guitar in Early December, and i wasnt disappointed. the sound of this guitar is great unplugged and beautiful when plugged with some distortion. i had some problems with this though, i had to file down the sharp fret edges a bit and some of the hardware is a bit cheap. other then these minor problems its a great guitar.

Comments about Squier Affinity Series Telecaster Special Electric Guitar:

I have been playing guitar for over 40 yrs and have owned Gibsons,Epiphones,and Ibanez guitars,When i decided I wanted something different,I headed to Guitar Center to spend an afternoon checking things out.Isaw this hanging on the wall and when i saw the price,i thought i would give it a try.Needless to say,I couldnt put it down,and 2 hrs later I was walking out the store with it.Neck is smooth and fast(had to dress the frets a little when i got home),tone is great,and it has become my favorite guitar when the urge to play strikes.couldnt be happier with my purchase,and I would recommend it to anybody looking for a Tele

Really??? A Squire???

By Rob C.

from South Portland, ME

Comments about Squier Affinity Series Telecaster Special Electric Guitar:

I have to admit, I was thinking Fender all the way recently when looking at picking up a new guitar. I've been playing guitar for over 20 years, and have always been of the belief that Squier was inferior to Fender. Maybe the electronics are less desirable, and the hardware and pickup switch is a little less than perfect, but the sound and playability of this guitar are incredible. Color me educated. This thing is the poop! On the clean setup for jazz and country type licks, this thing glows, but what really surprised me was when I played it distorted through my Line 6 Spider practice amp. This thing screams. Pinch harmonics squeal out of this thing like rats out of a burning ship. I played a little Zakk Wylde Crazy Babies riffage and the tone was just about perfect. Vibrato and bends are butter, or Pakay, whatever you choose. Setup right out of the box was spot on for me. No need to adjust anything other than tuning it up. It was three days later before I had to even tune it again and that was just a couple of strings and I beat it like it owed me money. And lets talk about the looks department. The butterscotch blonde stain is beautiful. I was blown away with how it looked and the picture on the website doesn't do it justice. This thing is straight sexy. I heard rumor that it was a limited run, I'm not sure how true that is, but I didn't want to miss out and now I'm glad I didn't. This is now my daily guitar which is saying a lot with a Nuno, Les Paul, and a mauve Ibanez whammy monster in the stable. If you're thinking about picking this up, do yourself a favor and don't hesitate. It's great.

I am in love...

By Scotly

from Santa Ana, Ca

Comments about Squier Affinity Series Telecaster Special Electric Guitar:

Went to my local GC and tried out several different guitars, all more expensive than this one. Not only did this guitar produce some great sounds, but it is very forgiving and easy to play even for a novice such as myself. I couldn't find a guitar under $450 that has the same qualities. Cheap + great = love.

great guitar for the price

By Ken Binkley

from Coldwater Michigan

Comments about Squier Affinity Series Telecaster Special Electric Guitar:

I bought this at the Guitar center in South Bend, the gave me a good deal on it. It had a ding down around the jack input and they discounted it as well as gave me a good deal on my trade in. I highly reconmend this store. Overall this is a great guitar for the money. I've been wanting a Tele for a while now and thought I would try this one out. I'm glad I did! The twang is great, the neck PU gives me that bluesey tone that I'm looking for and overall construction and looks are great. I would reconmend this guitar to us low budget muscians anytime.

Good for BEGINNERS

By TerryKathisGod

from Chicago, Illinois

Comments about Squier Affinity Series Telecaster Special Electric Guitar:

About 2 years ago, i had a very big dream to start playing the guitar. I was/am a huge fan of Terry Kath, and this guitar looks kinda like his (minus the color, no stickers and cheap pickups). this guitar was a steal at the price, and i bout a Raven 20 watt amp to get me started. Now, i had been teaching my self for a year and it was going well so i joined a band. my friends were astonished with the quality of this guitar. i ended up needing a new amp, 20 wats wasnt doing it anymore and bought a 75 watt line 6. now as my second year is passing, im deciding that this guitar isnt really going to cut it, im going with a fender. but, this guitar did so much for me and im so greatful that there was a cheap priced but good quality guitar out there. ill never forget what i accomplished with this guitar, playing gigs and that good stuff. P.S., i would go with Fender Noiseless pickups on this bad boy, for the pickups are kinda cheap.
