An All-In-One Beginners Guitar Package
As a company, Squier was procured by Fender in the mid 1960s to manufacture guitar strings for them. Cut to 1982 when Fender reactivated the brand name, and used them to produce more-affordable versions of their best-selling guitars, which they continue to do so to this day!
Squier guitars are renowned for offering aspiring musicians the chance to own a decent Stratocaster or Telecaster for a low price. While these guitars are much more affordable than their Fender counterparts, that doesn't mean for one second that they compromise on quality.
Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster HSS
Squier's Affinity series is relatively new to the table, and represent some of the best value available in solid-body electric guitar design.
In this case we have an Affinity Series Stratocaster, with a HSS (Humbucker, Single, Single) pickup configuration, and a brown sunburst finish.
This guitar is as versatile as you could want it to be, producing clear, articulate tones through a "clean" amplifier, and downright dirty sounds when played through an Overdrive channel.
With sounds ranging from clear and mellow from the neck pickup, to those biting bridge humbucker tones, and with a 5-way pickup selector to get you everything in between, this guitar will help you develop a great playing technique from the very start.
Comfortable Body Design
The Stratocaster has always been known for its comfortable curved body. This guitar is designed to sit comfortably up against you when you play, making it equally easy to play sitting down or standing up.
To further compliment this, the guitar has a "C"-shaped neck profile (cross-section view of the neck). "C"-shaped necks sit comfortably in your hand whilst you play, and give you easy access to every fret across the entire fingerboard.
Fender Frontman 15G
Perfectly suitable to your needs as a beginner, the Fender Frontman 15G makes an ideal companion to the Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster.
This fantastic little amp boasts 15 Watts of power output, an Overdrive selector switch, AUX IN sockets for you to jam along with your favourite tracks, and even a Headphone socket so you don't annoy the neighbours too much.
Ideally suited to quiet home practice, while also loud enough to jam with your friends. What more could you want in a practice amp?
But Wait, There's More!
Not only do you get a guitar and amp in this starter pack, you also get a bunch of other goodies too.
First of all there's a padded Fender gig bag - ideal for keeping the guitar safe when you're not using it, and for transporting the guitar to and from lessons/rehearsals.
Secondly, you get a guitar cable for plugging yourself into the amp - needless to say, a must-have - and a set of Fender plectrums.
Thirdly there's a Fender guitar strap, allowing you to play whilst stood up, or even just pose for photos whilst doing a rock star pose (it's ok, we all do it).
And finally you get a free 3-month's worth of online guitar lessons, courtesy of Fender Play!
When we say this pack has everything you need to get you started, we really mean it! And at this price it would make the perfect birthday or Christmas gift for an aspiring rock start.
