Overview

There's no easier and more affordable way to get started on electric guitar than this value-filled Squier set. Opening this box opens a whole new musical future for you, with a great-sounding, cool-looking and easy-playing Affinity Strat guitar, a compact 10-watt Fender Frontman 10G amp to plug it into and all the accessories you need, including an electronic tuner, instructional DVD, gig bag, cable, strap and picks.

The guitar is nothing special, but it's not junk. It plays well, with no buzz after properly set up. There are no flaws in the construction or finish. The plastic parts (pick guard, knobs, etc) may not be the highest quality, but they're not flimsy, either. Tuning machines are basic but I found no flaws. The amp is of solid construction and seems of similar quality to other basic Fender amps. All in all, it seems to be a great starter guitar. It looks to me that Fender recognizes that selling a teenage boy a piece of junk as a starter guitar isn't going to win them lifetime fans. My son loves his, and his instructor's primary electric is an earlier model Squier Strat. You can't buy an equivalent new guitar plus amp for less, and it comes with a gig bag, strap, picks and a digital tuner that's $15 by itself. We looked through the used guitars and amps and still couldn't find this good a deal. The strap and the gig bag will probably get replaced... the strap is rough nylon and neither attractive nor as comfortable as it could be. But when outfitting a 12-year-old with his first electric guitar, not having to pay an additional $50 for these accessories at the outset means reaching the "guitar purchase goal" that much faster. I'm very pleased with the package overall, and this acoustic player is finding himself tempted to buy a Strat Pack of his own.

I got this for my first guitar. I would have been way better off to have gotten the HSS Affinity pack with the 20 watt amp. This amp wasn't really that good and if you wanted any volume with the clean it would have a weird overtone like an octavix or octavion and it was weird. just spend the extra money on the hss pack with better pickups and amp.

Are You Kidding Me???

By Ed

from Brownfield, Texas

Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pack w/ 10G Amplifier:

I can't speak for those that know every little nuisance about guitars ... but if you are like me and was not able to afford a Fender when I was a kid and had to play on guitars that were so hard to fret to make bar chords, etc., you will freak out when you hook this baby up to the amp that comes with it!!! Firstly, the amp is small but it is more than enough to give you the feel that you have all the power with sound that is so clean as to rival much larger amps when I was young. This thing is perfect for the home and perfection for travel. This guitar is beautiful, the pickups are nice. I don't hear the "hum" that is spoke of so much. The neck and fret board is so slender and so sweet to hold, it frets so easy that I can make bar chords consistently for the first time in my life!!! And yoo ... when it comes to bending strings ... I am still a little bit in awe that it can be done so effortlessly!!! First couple of times playing on this guitar was a "revelation" to me as to what a real guitar is supposed to feel, fret, and sound like!!! I am being totally honest in saying that if I were playing in a band again that the only thing that I would do is buy a bigger amp as needed and would still use the devil out of this amp for practice and home use. I can't ever see the justification of spending the extra it cost for "better" guitars because I am so satisfied with this thing!!! I finish by saying that this "package" is exactly as advertised. The only thing that could be added is a set of "hands" to play it for you!!! This is truly a "bang for the buck" reality. Regards ed

Katies Guitar!

By Jodele Jordan

from Fairplay, SC

Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pack w/ 10G Amplifier:

I purchased this beginners guitar for my teenage daughter Katie who plays the viola but wanted to learn to play the guitar. It is a perfect package at a great price for the beginner. Everything came basically ready to go to take the beginners guesswork out of it. I would highly recommend this package to someone who is a beginner or just curious. Christian from the Greenville SC store was a great help to me when I called for a recommendation. He gave me great information and helped me select just what I needed. So 5 stars for his service! It is a great package at a great price.

    I got this guitar when I was seven. It's easy to play simple songs pretty quickly. The frets are smooth and easy to glide your hand over. The sound is awesome. One downside is that the bolt to plug into the amp tends to get loose and needs to be tightened. All said, this is a great guitar!

    Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pack w/ 10G Amplifier:

    I purchased this guitar package strictly to use with my home studio and for writing songs. This is a entry level guitar and amp but its perfect for what I am using it for. As with any electric guitar, it should be set up and adjusted by and experienced guitarist or tech. The little amp packs plenty of volume for its size.

        Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pack w/ 10G Amplifier:

        Purchased this guitar in August. It looks really good and i was able to start taking lessons immediately. Im really impressed with it. It's my first guitar so i have nothing to compare it to.

        Amp is a little lack luster, which is probably silly of someone who's just starteed to say.

        1 important thing to keep it mind is it will need to be professionally tuned. The action was high and the intonation was off. didnt realize this until 2 months later which i was playing chords in front of my teacher. the action was so high that i had a hard time playing chords without my hand muting the 1st string.

        other than that it is an amazing guitar and the guy that tuned it told me the Indonesian made strat is one of the better guitars.

        Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pack w/ 10G Amplifier:

        The squier strat is a very reasonable guitar for beginner to intermediate players. I had to set it up and tune it out of the box. The Fender amp that comes with the pack has a crunch distortion that is good for like jazz but as far as Rock or anything else really it sounds pretty bad. It's a Fender amp and they are designed for what they are designed for. I just don't play that type of music but the basic layout and the options the amp have are great for what it is. The pack comes with everything you need to learn including a DVD that teaches you chords more in depth than any beginner book I had tried before. The practice tracks are fantastic also. I wish it would have come with a stand (which is my biggest complaint) It's a great value for starters but if you've been playing for a year on used gear that is wearing like I was and you want it because its new I would say save up or at least go back the next week and trade up the amp and get a cable because the cables that come in these packs are usually good for about a month.

Great value for the money. Was very impressed with the tone and sound quality of the amp for it's size.Definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of getting started with guitar and not wanting to invest a ton of cash upfront.

        Nice package for the price. Items were well packaged and in great condition. The body and neck had a nice fit and finish. I was surprised that the guitar needed minimal setup, ready to rock straight out of the box. I was a bit disappointed with the pick guard. It was not flush with the guitar and was rather cheap looking. I replaced it with an aftermarket white three ply guard (black middle layer), and it looks 100% better. I would strongly recommend this guitar kit to someone just starting off. The Squier Affinity is a really nice guitar for the price.

          Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pack w/ 10G Amplifier:

          I bought this awesome starter pack as a Christmas gift for our 12-yr old daughter on 11/27/15. I'm assuming it was on sale due to Black Friday because it was $50 cheaper. After seeing and hearing what the guitar and amp are capable of, I can honestly say that even if I paid full price it would have still been a great deal!

          The guitar is much better than the guitars in the same price range from 30+ yrs ago. Good workmanship, the black finish is flawless, easy to play, good sound/tone, smooth/fast neck, and NO FRET BUZZ! This is 100 times better than the cheap $150 Lotus guitars from the 80s! My 12-yr old has no problems playing it, and it sounds really good. She hasn't learned how to play bar chords yet, but I can say for certain that bar chords won't be hard to play on this guitar.

          The amp actually sounds much better than I expected for a small 10-watt practice amp. It has a good clean sound, and a really great-sounding distorted/overdrive sound. I believe this is an indication that the guitar's stock pickups are actually quite good too.

          I purchased this starter pack at the GC in Appleton WI. The staff was very helpful and informative, and I made the decision to buy this based on my phone conversation with someone named Colton or Collin. When I went to the GC to buy this, Alex was very helpful and made sure to examine the guitar and tune it up before I left. I wish we could rate GC locations, because the Appleton WI GC definitely deserves the highest rating possible!

          My only suggestion is to purchase a guitar stand to store the guitar in a "safe" place when not in use (like a corner of a room where it won't get knocked over), as I think that keeping it in the gig bag and leaning it against a wall or dresser isn't very safe for the guitar.

          Overall I'm very pleased with this purchase, and would definitely buy another one. You get a very good basic starter guitar and practice amp, plus other accessories for a great price. This is really a great deal for someone who's just starting to learn guitar, and I even recommend it to intermediate-level guitarists who haven't played in a while and who are looking to get back into playing but don't want to spend a lot. In fact, I'm thinking of getting the HSS version of this starter pack for myself! Well done, Squier, Fender, & GC!

            I was looking for an entry-level guitar and amp set to start teaching myself to play (I "messed around" with a guitar in college) and this kit fit the bill. Great price and full of features and accessories. Out of the box, it looked and sounded great, and after only a short time, I've picked up some chords and can now play some established songs. The amp and accessories are all near-perfect for a beginner like myself. This is one of my favorite purchases ever, and a great starting point for anyone wanting to learn to play. I particularly like the ease of the electronic tuner, as tuning has always been an issue with me (I don't have the ear for it). I cannot say enough good things about it. You cannot go wrong here.

              I learned how to play on an acoustic several years ago. So I wanted to try out an electric. Surprisingly there isn't that much of a difference. This guitar is really easy to play right out of the box. The action is good and the strings are easy to press. There is a very slight sort of rattling but for the price this a great starter set that sounds pretty good and the tuner and cd that comes with it is a great bonus.

              I'm seventeen, and have played acoustic guitar since i was twelve. I have a classical acoustic, and an ovation acoustic electric, and was looking into experimenting with electrics. When i saw this deal, i thought it was too good to be true, but the entire package, from the pick samplers, to the guitar itself, was a great buy. I've had it for about a month since the writting of this review, and the guitar is in as good shape as it came in. The strings are super light in tension, which is perfect for anyone looking to start playing from scratch. The tremolo bar adds a little extra fun with experimenting, and the amp, while basic, is by FAR louder than what i expected. And while i didn't personally use the cd it came with too much, it has all the ley tips a d tricks to set you up with a good foundation on the guitar. I recomend this starter pack to ANYONE who is interested in playing electric guitar.

                  The guitar and items that came with it are superb! I am totally pleased with it. Glad the wammy bar was not attached as I don't use one and would have had to remove it. I am also very impressed with the service I got from the Guitar Center employees. Helpful and very able with advice. Great product, great service, great people! Whats not to like? Shop the Guitar center first, then shop around. You will find that you will return to the Guitar Center.
