The Squier Affinity Telecaster Electric Guitar is a mainstay of Fender's affordable Squier range. Although considered a budget/beginner range don't let that fool you into thinking that these guitars aren't serious machines. Squier guitars work just as well for touring musicians as they do for the newbie and the Affinity Telecaster is no exception.
Classic Looks, Modern Spec
The Telecaster was the first commercially successful solid-body guitar and such a fantastic piece of design that little has changed since it's inception. Like it's 50's forerunner the Squier Affinity Telecaster has an alder body, giving it a balanced and full-bodied tone. Alder is well known for being one the most versatile tonewoods, so whether you want to play rock, country, blues or even heavy metal this guitar can handle it all.
A maple, 'C' shape neck gives a playing comfortability that handles double stop bends or shred scale runs in equal measure. The Indian Laurel fingerboard lets your hands glide easily over the neck with precision and the comfortable 9.5-inch radius lets you play with aplomb. With 21 medium-jumbo frets, you're assured of hitting every note and the white dot inlays ensure you never lose your way.
Powerful Electronics, Reliable Hardware
This Squier Affinity Telecaster has had multiple upgrades. This includes the original neck pickup being replaced with a Gretsch-Style hum bucker, taken from a Fender Bullet Mustang. The volume and tone pots have also been upgraded, with modified control knobs added for good measure. Furthermore, the original white scratch plate has been replaced with a custom-made 3-ply red tortoiseshell one.
Unusually for a Telecaster, this guitar features a six-saddle bridge setup giving you rock-solid intonation and plenty of options for customisation, whether you want to set-up for big country bends or fast riffing and soloing. Coupled with a reliable set of die-cast tuning machines this guitar upholds it's tuning conscientiously to ensure that no matter what you're playing you stay in tune.
This Squier Affinity Telecaster is an outstanding guitar at a fantastic price point, perfect for the newbie guitarist or the more seasoned musician looking for something to practice or jam on.
