Overview by GAK

The Squier Affinity Series Telecasters are a great option for beginners and younger players who want the classic Tele design and sound at an affordable price. Squier guitars are made by Fender so you can expect great quality and the classic design, but Squier’s cheaper manufacturing methods keep the costs low.

The bodies are made from Poplar, a more affordable alternative to ash, the necks are made from maple and are a slim and comfortable “C”-shaped neck, perfect for people who are just starting to learn. The fingerboards are made from either Indian laurel (on models Slick Silver, Race Green, Race Red, and Competition Orange ) or Maple (on models Butterscotch Blonde, Arctic White, 2 Tone Sunburst, and Black). There’s dual Squier single-coil Tele pickups with 3-way switching, a six-saddle bridge, and sealed die-cast tuning machines.

Squier has taken all the beloved features of the Telecaster and created a version that’s accessible for people with a lower budget, but still looks and sounds great.

    Excellent guitar

  • AJ


    Good guitar may it be for beginner or pro. I also like the fact that it is ready for a humbucker pick up upgrade. The C shape neck and satin feel is very nice when playing. This is my first tele and this is a good addition to my guitars. p.s. it doesn't come with the d'addario nyxl string I bought it separately.
