The Affinity Series Stratocaster is the ideal way for budding musicians to enter the world of Fender guitars. Fender’s Affinity series electric guitars are straight-ahead, affordable instruments ideal for beginners of all ages. The Affinity Strat has a slightly slimmer body crafted from solid Alder. All Affinity guitars feature comfortable, 21-fret Maple necks with fast-action fingerboards and die-cast tuners. The Stratocaster is the guitar that started it all, an iconic instrument used by countless greats from Jimi Hendrix to Eric Clapton. The Affinity Stratocaster is a 3/4 scale guitar designed by Squier to capture the distinctive feel and sound of the original Strat in a package ideal for younger musicians. The Affinity Strat also features three single-coil pickups, a standard tremolo and 5-way switching for those great in-between tones.
