"O" for two! I bought this model and when it arrived it looked nice, except there was hardly a straight screw hole on the body. I took it to the local store and they replaced it. Store staff was professional and courteous. The new one arrived today, in a timely manner. Upon unboxing, I noted that the humbuckers were straight this time, and there wasn't an annoying glob of fret glue to be found. There was a chip in the finish where the neck meets the body (as if someone tried to insert the neck incorrectly). However, being that this is a cheaper model, I thought I'd take a chance on it. I took it home and commenced to set the intonation (after first checking the truss rod and the saddle height). It was upon going through the intonation process that I discovered the low E wouldn't intonate properly. Even with the saddle spring removed, and the screw making contact with the string, it was still sharp. Ack! Upon closer examination, I can see that the bridge is crooked - but in the wrong direction! I'm not about to cut the saddle screw shorter to make this junker. work. Very disappointed! Even though I purchased pro coverage, I'm now contemplating just returning the guitar and spending my money on a partscaster a friend of mine has for sale at a steal of a price (with everything ready to rock, as it has enjoyed a life on stage and I KNOW everything is set up properly). If you like improperly filed nuts and crooked parts, then this is the guitar for you... I bought it because I play slide and the humbuckers were ideal to me. Although intonation doesn't affect my slide playing, I intended to use this guitar for hybrid sliding, but who wants to play a boat anchor that won't play in tune? I'm of the opinion that if a guitar doesn't play right - it doesn't matter how pretty it looks sitting in the stand. Save yourself some trouble and look at some other teles instead!

      Comments about Squier FSR Affinity Telecaster HH with Matching Headcap:

      I was actually going to buy a different orange Telecaster, but I came across this one instead, and I instantly fell in love. Not only does this one cost the same, but the matching colors make it sooo much better. If I were to call Fender to custom make me a guitar, this would be EXACTLY what I'd tell them to make. It's perfect for me!

        Comments about Squier FSR Affinity Telecaster HH with Matching Headcap:

        After years of slacking I wanted to pick up the guitar again. It is very easy and fun to play. It was playable right out of the box and required very little set up. I also like the humbucker sound. The tuners are a little touchy, but it is an entry level guitar. This is a beautiful instrument and the colored head cap will make it a collector's item.

        Comments about Squier FSR Affinity Telecaster HH with Matching Headcap:

        I bought this guitar from guitar center and was very pleased with the fast delivery and "in store pickup". After one of their techs worked his magic on the action, this thing is a real joy to play, The neck smooth and buttery....no gluey coating hindering left hand movement. I hate to put it down. For the money you cant go wrong. The guitar center even did the set up at no charge.

        The guitar arrived with a flawless set up. I rarely find a guitar at this price range with such low low action and absolutely no buzzing what so ever.

        The neck is super straight and the guitar just feels and plays amazingly.

        The only issue I found was that the headstock has a chip in it where the paint is. I probably won't return it. As I don't want to risk getting a guitar that is not as perfectly set up as the one I got.

          • Not as nice as a $1000 Fender in terms of sound.

            Comments about Squier FSR Affinity Telecaster HH with Matching Headcap:

            Great looking. Easy to play. I had to lower the action just a little. Definitely a deal and worth the money.
            It sounds great with my Marshall DSL40. If you want significantly better you'll have to shell out 3-4 times as much.

            Comments about Squier FSR Affinity Telecaster HH with Matching Headcap:

            Out of the box, intonation, action, etc. was pretty off. I think they save money with the setup; everything works? Check, ship. I replaced tuners with locking tuners, and the pickups, and in doing so I also found that a couple of screws were slightly crooked, some saw dust/wood flakes (between the neck and the body, and even behind the pick guard, making it bow slightly), and the nut was cut pretty high. Most annoying were the fret wires; they had been leveled with some heavy grit sandpaper (presumably), leaving ingrained lines parallel to the strings. I had to sand with 600 grit before using steel wool to polish. HOWEVER, after adjusting for all of these things - couple of hours of TLC - the guitar is a beauty. The color is great, the actual hardware is good. Again, plan on setting it up (more than a quick tune up, but less than a whole fret job), and you'll be pretty impressed. Side note, back of the neck is sanded (not lacquered), feels nice.

            In short, plan on spending the time (or paying someone to), and you'll have something different in the collection.

            I own 2 high end guitars and I bought this Squire as my travel guitar. I have to say that I am very happy with the craftsmanship and playability of such a reasonably priced guitar. I prefer a low action and it was perfect for me right out of the box. The metallic orange colour is much better and brighter than in the photos. I find myself grabbing this guitar at home much more than I thought I would. I was also very pleased with the service of the Harrisburg Pa. Guitar Center in ordering for me, storing and ensuring delivery as I was picking up while travelling through the area. Great job.

            Pretty much what I expected from a Squire guitar. It was not intonated out of the box. String action and neck relief were set properly though. Pickups are weak, fret ends are sharp. Nice looking guitar for the money, just needs some more work to suit my needs.

            Comments about Squier FSR Affinity Telecaster HH with Matching Headcap:

            The black on black has a definite cool factor to it. The body is thinner than a normal Telecaster. It makes it a lot lighter. It's actually quite nice to have such a light Telecaster. The body and neck are pretty nice. The setup on this one was pretty much just as good as the more expensive Fenders. Intonation was slightly off, but that's easily fixed.

            Pickups are a little muddy, but overall they're not bad at all. I can certainly live with them for some time. I just turn the treble up on the amp and it balances out pretty well. They're fairly low output, which is good for clean playing, but they do quite well with distortion.

            I bought this as a mod platform and will probably change out the pickups and the nut (plastic). It's well worth the price even if you change out the pickups.

            Honestly I just got this product and already love it, I don't have any trouble with it going out of tune which is always a plus. The price is lower sure so you might not get the same pretty looking wood that really gets some people going but I like the sounds lots. My roommates are always showing up in my doorway asking for a go with it.
