Squier Affinity Series Telecaster Deluxe Main Features

  • Thin and lightweight body
  • Slim and comfortable C-shaped neck profile with laurel fingerboard
  • Two Squier humbucking pickups
  • String-thru-body bridge

Thin and Lightweight Body

Squier knew that improving the sound of the Affinity Series didn't have to come at the cost of comfort. The thin, lightweight design produces a warm resonance and actually offers a better feel, with more control. It's comfortable to hold and easier to pick up and play.

Slim C-shaped Neck

For additional comfort, these Affinity Telecasters feature a C-shaped neck. Players of many different styles often find it an ideal shape that improves the ease of playing. With the Indian laurel fingerboard, it's easy to get a smooth, balanced response from this electric.

Squier Humbucking Pickups

The Affinity Tele Deluxe features two proprietary Squier humbucking pickups. These add versatility and control over the volume and tone, allowing the Telecaster to adjust to plenty of genres—rock, country, blues, R&B and more.

String-thru-body Hardtail Bridge

The Affinity Deluxe models also feature a string-thru-body hardtail bridge. Previous Affinity Telecasters featured a top-loaded bridge. With the string-thru-body, these guitars have better tuning stability, as well as improved sustain and resonance.

The sealed die-cast tuning machines feature split shafts. This helps achieve more accurate tuning. And since strings always need to be replaced eventually—whether they break or just need a refresh—this feature also makes restringing the Affinity Telecaster a breeze. Plus, this prevents the string ends from damaging the gig bag, since they sit inside the shaft.
