About Squier Affinity Stratocaster

The Squier Affinity Strat is the industry standard guitar for beginners and students. Sitting between the Bullet series and the Standard series, the Affinity Strat styles it up with a 70s-style headstock shape. It is available in a wide range of colours. The Squier Stratocaster is one of our most popular guitars and the Affinity is one of the bestselling models. It is a comfortable, handsome instrument with all the outlines of a classic Stratocaster.

The Affinity Strat comes either with the customary trio of single coil pickups or as an 'HSS' model. A bridge humbucker replaces the single coil for a more powerful sound with these guitars. Visit us at any of our UK based stores and try both varieties to see which you prefer!
