Squier Affinity Strat (HSS)
The Stratocaster, AKA ‘The Strat’, is almost certainly the highest selling electric guitar design of all time having first been released in 1954.
- Alder body with gloss polyurethane finish
- Maple neck with 9.5 in radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets
- 2 Single-Coil Pickups and 1 Humbucking Pickup
- Synchronous Tremolo Bridge
- Master volume with 2 tone controls with 5 position pickup selector switch
This guitar is still consistently commended for its excellent value. Its inherent versatility allows for 5 different tones via the pickup selector. It continues to get recommendations from experienced players, including those who want to try guitar modifications.
The tremolo bar (aka whammy bar) and tuners got some criticism from users who reported having tuning stability issues, but this happens with most guitars in this price range. Because this particular Strat is cheap and popular, there are some users who unfairly compare this guitar to more expensive models.
This is one of the most inexpensive versions of the Strat that you can buy, and it will continue to be popular for many years.
