THE guitar did not come with accessories. The most useful feature on this guitar would have to be the action. Perfect. I mean PERFECTION! Better than any Fender I’ve ever played. I wish though that the bridge was string-thru-body. It seems easier that way. Also a better job on the neck please. More finish. It was fast at first but now after 1 1/2 years of daily play, it has worn off.
it sounded pretty good as it was, have since changed to a set of tex-mex pickups and now this thing sounds wonderful clean It’s not noisy at all, a bit of hum, but nothing that is terrible. Very good guitar for beginners as well as more experienced players. It also looks as good as it plays . For turning into a relic. a relic and you don’t have the cash this is the thing to go for. It has a fast neck, smooth action, very stable tuning. And most importantly an excellent tone. It doesn’t buzz when you play it either.
The only difference I noticed was that the Squier had a little more hum than the Fender. That can be fixed, however, with some of Fender’s best pickups. It is an excellent guitar for anyone. For those who are more serious players, it can be tweaked to sound and feel like a Fender. Good guitar.
it sounded pretty good as it was, have since changed to a set of tex-mex pickups and now this thing sounds wonderful clean It’s not noisy at all, a bit of hum, but nothing that is terrible. Played it on stages, in recording studios. This I can swear by: the sound equals if not surpasses the standard Fender model’s! Professional results through and through.
Excellent value per $$ paid!!! I think it is a reasonable price for the tele, but probably about $20 less is perfect, if your looking for a guitar that is in your price range this guitar is the best. you will love it. Check Latest Price.
I’d love to own one again, although I have to admit I prefer the American series Tele I currently play…
But, if you are an intermediate guitar player and don’t have the budget and want to buy it, I recommend you 2 things: 1. new pair of pickups. 2. new set of tuning keys. That’s what I did and can enjoy it from time to time, when I’m in the mood of playing some blues or some soft rock.
A guitar that’s excellent value per $ paid. Delivers more than it promises. If treated with care will supply years and years of joy.
TO HAVE THIS GUITAR AND LIKE IT YOU MUST MEET THESE QUALIFICATIONS
1. YOU ARE A BEGINNER OR AN INTERMEDIATE “PICKER”
2. YOU ARE PATIENT
3. YOU DON’ MIND SOME DINGS, CHIPPINGS, OR SCRATCHES
If you meet these, buy it without thinking twice. If you don’t meet any one of these, walk away and don’t look back at Affinity series. I am upgrading to a Squier standard tele in 6 months. I just don’t think this guitar will hold up FOR ME for another year. I can feel it falling apart and really ticking me off. But again, I am picky (I about cried when i chipped it) and very impatient. Its your call. If you meet those qualifications, buy it; if not, please don’t. Go a little higher like Squier Standard or Fender Standard.
