Squier Affinity Starcaster, Maple, Candy Apple Red Overview.

The Starcaster broke the mold of semi-hollow guitar design with its offset body shape when it was introduced in the ‘70s, offering versatile sound and out-of-this-world styling for the most adventurous players. The Affinity Series Starcaster creates massive tone courtesy of its dual Squier humbucking pickups and is easy to play thanks to its slim, comfortable “C”-shaped neck profile. This Squier model also features a unique contoured headstock, an adjustable bridge with stop tailpiece for solid tuning stability, durable chrome-plated hardware and a smooth satin neck finish for a natural feel.

    Good value for money, basic semi-solid / semi-acoustic. Good low action, easy neck. Lightweight, comfortable guitar. Lovely finish in the Candy apple red.

    Bought this coz I just love the colour - quite a deep shade of candy-apple just like the pictures. I was thinking I'd change the neck for a Fender, and upgrade the pickups. But the thing played so beautifully straight out of the box that I don't think I'll do that anymore! Lovely silky smooth neck, and action as low as any superstrat. Pickups nicely balanced with good attack in the bridge and mellow without muddiness in the neck. The only thing I'd change is the strings - the 9s it's supplied with feel a bit light of this type of guitar. In my experience, Indonesian guitars are up there with the best of them, and this one is no exception - if Fender keep making Squiers as good as this, they'll put themselves out of business!
