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 series Strat styles it up with a large range of colours and a large, 70s-style headstock shape. The Squier Stratocaster is generally our most popular guitar and this Affinity iteration is one of the bestselling models by quite some distance. It is a comfortable, handsome instrument with all of the outlines and appointments of a classic Stratocaster, therefore its success is not a surprise!

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!

Frequently Asked Questions about Squier Affinity Stratocaster

Stratocasters are famously versatile. There is no genre out there that cannot be successfully tackled by a Stratocaster! The Squier Affinity Strat may be inexpensive but this famous versatility is present here in spades. This is why so many guitarists have a Stratocaster of some description in their guitar collection. A Squier Affinity Strat is a very cost-effective way to achieve this.
The Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster has, in its standard form, 3 single coil pickups, selectable via a 5-way blade switch. The HSS model substitutes the bridge position single coil pickup for a humbucking pickup. This offers a broader range of sounds.
The differences are primarily found in the hardware and finish choices. The Standard Strat has upgraded alnico magnet pickups and upgraded bridge saddles for more effective tremolo use. Otherwise, it is a matter of colour preference! The Affinity Stratocaster comes in a large selection of finishes, has a solid Alder body and offers fantastic value for money.
