When i first saw this guitar i thought it was going to be a very cheap version of the Telecaster. I Tried this out at a guitar shop and was honestly blown away from the incredible sounds it has. It truly should be named Telecaster rather then Squire. I've work with many expensive guitars, Rickenbackers, Martins, Fenders, Gibsons and so on and i can honestly say this guitar is worth the price its at. For a beginner or just a gig guitar, this guitar is amazing and has an amazing sound. I would totally recommend it to any left handed players

Great Guitar

By Jose Morales

from Bakersfield, CA

Comments about Squier Affinity Series Left-Handed Telecaster Special Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar because I really wanted a Tele and I didn't have a lot of money. This thing sounds absolutely great. The bridge pup is really trebly which is good for punk and rock n' roll. The middle position is great for blues if you want a warm tone with some punch. And the neck pup is great for clean and mellow overdrive. Probably the only downsides are the input jack and the knobs. The input jack requires constant screwing, it'd be better just to replace it. Same thing with the knobs they get loose so it'd be good to replace those too. Other than that it's an amazing guitar one of the best I've ever bought. Good Job Fender and Squier.

great guitar

By Peter Broussard

from New Orleans, La

Comments about Squier Affinity Series Left-Handed Telecaster Special Electric Guitar:

I needed a guitar for recording original material. I have a growing number of instruments. Mostly acoustic, with single coil and humbucker pick ups. The Telecaster provides the range of tones I needed, from chunky sharp to mild and mellow. After reading a lot of reviews I decided to buy the Squier affinity and am glad I did, the guitar sounds really fine played through an old Marshall Lead 20. Oh, I almost forgot I also own Yamaha and Squier basses. So I have some thing to judge against. In my opinion you can't go wrong buying this entry level guitar. An absolute bargain, you can't find a better deal, I know, I looked and this is beside the fact that I am left handed. I am now ready to get Loud and make some noise.

Great intro into the Tele world

By Steve Linz

from Watertown WI

Comments about Squier Affinity Series Left-Handed Telecaster Special Electric Guitar:

I am left handed. Need I say more. Well I probably should. Being left handed means you can't borrow you friend guitar for a few week to see what you think. I have owned over the years all the major type of guitars (SG, Les Paul, 335, etc,)always over looked the Telecaster. For this price, come on! First week had to replace the saddle pieces 50 bucks more, no biggy. High end still buzzed, hum guess the other end needed something too. I applied the old pencil lead technique, good enough now. Remember this this neck is more narrow than the standard Tele the pre-make nuts will not fit. MY FUTURE in the Tele-world. Plan to buy the real thing next the American Tele. Wider neck, better paint beefy frets. I should give Guitar Center a call to see if they have the left handed American in stock

buy it

By james closmann

from honolulu, hawaii

Comments about Squier Affinity Series Left-Handed Telecaster Special Electric Guitar:

I bought one of these for my left handed brother. it is well worth every penny and a steal at this price. fit and finish were flawless, action was perfect right out of the box, low without any fret buzz. electronics seemed adequate and tone good. I would not have bought it had I known it was made in china. but, was pleasantly surprised at the high quality. only downside is you don't get a gig bag at this price. but well worth double this low cost. was fun to play and solid enough to gig with.

A good beginning!

By Peter Broussard

from New Orleans, La

Comments about Squier Affinity Series Left-Handed Telecaster Special Electric Guitar:

I needed an electric guitar for recording. I was looking for something that has a pretty fair tonal range and the guitar really has it nailed. Chunky sharp to mild and mellow. Some how that sounds like I am reviewing cheese, not a Telecaster. One of the other reviewers said something about the jack and knobs. I have to tighten the nut on the jack every other time I am playing. Come on, Squier a lock washer is all that is needed and you know what I have one and know how to use it. So, if at some point I gig with this quitar,all that is needed is the chops to make you not care what quitar I am playing, so get off your but and dance to the music.

    Comments about Squier Affinity Series Left-Handed Telecaster Special Electric Guitar:

    Christmas gift from my parents. Blew me out of the water. Best guitar I have ever owned/played. Love the butterscotch wood finish color. Turned off my bedroom light and noticed the guitar is two-toned between the butterscotch color and the wood finish like a two-tone car! You will notice this guitar has the best gloss finish and protective paint enamel I have ever seen and felt.
    Very lightweight. I give this guitar 6 stars if I could! Only one tone knob, but two pickups (one full finish metal, other is a pitched/crooked metal dot pickup) gives the ability to silence the high notes or make them the most prevalent notes. Strings are fantastic - holds the guitar in tune even when returning from a note pitch stretch and return. Great for playing my kind of favorite music which is artists like Jeff Beck and Pink Floyd.
    The spacing between the two pickups is such a benefit to anyone who uses a glass slider, as you can create notes that are above and beyond the fretboard! Very easy to re-tune. Best Fender Stratocaster in the world! 5 Stars Most Definitely.

    I like it is comfortable to play and has a grate vintage style, but the Pick ups can be better, especially the neck pick Up, I might change it for one Dimarzio o GMC.

      I am a beginning guitar player and I wanted an entry level Tele because I love the twangy sound of them. I have been very pleased with my Squier Affinity Tele. Granted I don't have any experience playing high end instruments but for i what I wanted, it is perfect! I would highly recommend it and will likely buy a Strat in the future.
