Great starter guitar
Dav1878, 30.05.2020
I am fairly new to the world of guitars, especially electric, so my review is solely on my findings as a beginner.

UNBOXING
On delivery of my guitar I was as excited as a kid receiving their first games console at Christmas. I wanted to tear into the box with gusto. The packaging was more than adequate for the guitar's from Germany to the UK. Not only was it in its original packaging but was also then boxed in Thomann branded packaging on top. Once I was able to unbox the guitar I gave it a thorough inspection and was happy to see the instrument in prisoner condition. I was immediately taken with guitar's colour, a shimmering mid to light green. The picture on the website does show it as being darker but the colour is more eye catching in reality. The light coloured neck tones in beautifully with the green and the contrasting Indian Laurel fingerboard is the icing on the cake.

PLAYABILITY
I purchased this guitar as I was struggling with the action on my acoustic. With being a beginner and lockdown closing my local music store, I was unable to have this adjusted. The Squier Affinity was the complete opposite, very payable from the offset. There was a fair bit of tuning to be done but this is normal for any new guitar. The action was perfect straight out of the box. The name may say Squier but they are Fender so the quality shines through. The HSS pickup configuration is a great starting point for a beginner as it allows for the playing of many styles. The sounds are great for the price point.

CONCLUSION
If you are looking for a decent guitar to start your journey then look no further than this offering from Squier. You will not regret it.

Just what the doctor ordered
WcWa, 30.10.2020
I am the owner of a Lag Special 1883, A Gibson Les Paul 1981, and a Fender Strat 1997(Mexican). This Squier arrived before time and in perfect packaging condition. Out of the box, it was ·almost perfectly in tune, The action was perfect, The intonation was perfect, and the guitar basically needed nothing to do to it apart from plug in and play. The finish is amazing for the price and I was blown away by the neck feel. This is not a 200 Euro guitar. It is much more. I actually like the skinnier body as it's lighter and the neck is quite incredible for that base priced instrument. Would I buy it again? I'd buy two and say to hell with the Mex that I already own because apart from a bit more Pickup gain,,,, This Affinity is actually quite a lot better. I'll be swapping out the PUPS later on for some Seymore Duncans and from there I expect to swap the trem bridge for n original and the machine heads for something slightly more robust. I'll have a decent Strat by then.

Great guitar
darragh7421, 26.04.2020
This is a great guitar for any acoustic player moving to electric or a great guitar for beginners. I play acoustic and the more metalalic songs really put a stress on my fingers even after years of hardening. This guitar is great for both soft acoustic songs and heavy metal songs as it has two single coil and a humperback pick up. The only only problem i have is the amount of frets, if i where getting another id try get as manny fres as possible but otherwise really great guitar for the price and great sound. The wah bar doesnt put the strings out of shape easily but id advise against the wah bar for a beginner so you learn to bend proper. In summery great start up guitar for a good price and good for a variety of players and there style.
