Product Description

The Squier Affinity Telecaster Electric Guitar has the tone and feel that compete with guitars that cost much more! The Affinity Series by Squier is a favorite among beginners and gigging guitarists who want a solid instrument that will perform day after day. With two vintage-style single-coil pickups, the Affinity Telecaster pumps out classic twang and punchy tone that has been a favorite among guitarists from country to rock for decades. Squier also outfits this guitar with a comfortable C-shaped Maple neck, 21 medium jumbo frets, and six-saddle top-load bridge.

Not bad but, the stock bridge is horrible !!!!
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
For the price, it's not a bad guitar but, seeing that the stock top loader bridge makes restringing difficult, I replaced it with a Vintage style that has the 3 Brass Tele Saddles. Now it's much easier to restring and also has more sustain as well.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Squier has really upped their game with the intro of these new Affinity models. I have the Sunburst one and it's very well built.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The stock neck has no fret edges sticking out at all and the stock tuners do a great job of maintaining tuning stability. This neck is a joy to play.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
The stock pickups sound great but I did replace the stock capacitors with some Orange drops that have definitely improved the sound of the guitar. Now it's a true tone monster.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
I'm a sucker for a Sunburst Finish that is done well and Squier has done a great job with this one.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
This is right up there with IMO, any MIM Fender Telecaster once I added my mods to it. It's definitely a keeper and sounds awesome.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Definitely needed a setup and a bridge replacement because of the crappy stock bridge saddles. Why can't Squier either make these string thru or use the 3 barrel Tele saddles on these ? That would make restringing much easier and add more tone and sustain IMO.
