    Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

    The last time I picked up a guitar was some time back in high school, so I was looking for something not too expensive, but still a quality beginner guitar and this Squier does not disappoint. It's the beautiful surf green color with the rosewood fingerboard. The guitar is easy to play, which makes learning bar chords again not too terrible, and everything from the neck to the bridge was flawless out of the box. I would highly recommend this guitar for someone who is just getting started, or for someone who wants a budget guitar to travel with. You will not be disappointed.

      Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

      I've been playing Strats for going on 50 years. I play professionally and have them from U.S., Mexico and Japan. My wife gave me a Pink Affinity as a surprise birthday present as she noticed I liked the color when walking through a local store. She doesn't really understand quality differences etc. so I always tell her not to buy me guitars. But she went ahead and bought this without my knowing. For the money (under 200) you couldn't ask for anything more. Great neck, perfect intonation on the entire neck, light weight, well balanced, beautiful finish, bell like tone. And yes I would take it to a gig. It's not a 1000. guitar but the the people listening to it wouldn't know the difference. hats off to Fender and their Chinese partners.

          Purchased this for my child. Their 1st electric guitar. I was amazed at the quality. I had purchased a Squier back in 1984 and it is still going strong. This one matches it. Not a single complaint. Stays in tune. Action is great. Of course, back in the day it came with a case, which this had to be purchased separately.

            Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

            Playing for 40 years never had a Stratocaster, I have a custom 68 Telecaster, Gibson Les Paul, a 335, an SG plus others but I've wanted a Stratocaster for a while. I didn't want to spend a lot of money so I decided to buy a Squire to see how I would like the guitar. I bought this Affinity because it's body is made from Alder like it's more expensive American make version, not Basswood like most of the rest of the Squire line. The guitar looks and sounds great I like the satin finish on the neck it feel smooth to play. Even though it sounds great I'm still going to put in a set of Fender Custom Shop Fat 50's for $200. That will give me the Alder body with Fat 50's like the American version for a lot less money.

              Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

              Installed a set of Dominger USA single coils, new pots switch fender neck plate jack brass block and fender saddles sanded off squire label with 800 grit new spaghetti label. Fresh strings and setup. Voila a 300 guitar with more tone and sustain than my stock american standard with the all rosewood neck. Affinity has really stepped up their game. This was the most inexpensive way to get a cool pink strat. Body was not plywood It was 3 pieces glued together. Also weighs more than my all rosewood neck american standard

                What can I say! It's a Squire entry level Strat. These are perfect for that aspiring beginner in your family.
                After a really intense set up and inspection I found it to be an OK beginner instrument. It is well built right down to full sized pots inside. The only real cheezy thing about it is that the neck finish is cheap.

                Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

                I bought one of these for myself in Sunburst. I was happy with it, though it will not work well with a Capo. This review is on the Blue model, and it is the 2nd one I bought. This time for my son, as his first electric guitar. I would give this guitar 5 stars, but clearly if you can not use a Capo on it? There something not right with the design. It plays fine with no Capo, in Standard E. It can take abuse. Over all this is a good Fender Product. It is just not the real deal if you want a serious Stratocaster.. Though it is a spot on replica with cheaper wood and parts.

                  I've bought quite a few Affinity Strats, a Telecaster and a Musicmaster and although I have been pleased with them all, they have all had at least one fret that was either too low or too high. This guitar did not have this problem. Because of the light weight, I play these Affinities and almost never use my real Strats anymore.

                  Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

                  I've had bad experiences with squier in the past, but I'd like to say that this was not one of them. This guitar easily merits a price tag triple what it has. It's smooth to play, and has an amazing finish. I can bear the squier logo proudly.

                  For the cons:
                  Bad stock strings - They can be replaced easily so it's no big deal.
                  Poor factory intonation - Another simple fix, nothing worth skipping this for.
                  The little hole that you put the whammy bar into smells REALLY bad, so I don't recommend getting to close to it unless you hold your breath. Honestly though, if you find yourself in a situation where your nose is continually getting that close to the bridge, you might need to reconsider some life choices. Other than that, the thing is nearly flawless.
