Squier Affinity Stratocaster HSS Pack, bringing together everything you need, this pack is a great value way to start learning and playing guitar. This particular pack contains the classic Candy Apple Red Squier Stratocaster.
Great Guitar Starter Pack
Fender’s Squier Affinity line was created to provide great Fender style, sound and play ability but at a more accessible price point.
Included in the Squier Affinity Stratocaster Pack you’ll find the Squier Affinity Stratocaster electric guitar, a practise amp and all the accessories you’ll need to get rocking straight away making it the perfect choice for beginners.
Classic Stratocaster Style
Poplar has been used to craft the classic Stratocaster body design which features two cutaways allowing for easy reach of the higher frets; something you’re going to need when working on those solos!
The Strat’s Maple neck has a “C” shape profile, making for a comfortable playing grip while atop the neck you’ll find a traditional Rosewood fretboard which has pearloid dots as position inlays to help you find your way around the neck.
This model of the Stratocaster comes equipped with a vintage-style Fender tremolo allowing for that awesome whammy action reminiscent of 1950s and 1960s guitar playing, making it a perfect guitar for Hendrix inspired wailing.
Versatile Electronics with HSS Configuration
Fender’s legendary Stratocaster is well known for its versatility and with the Affinity Stratocaster HSS, they’ve added even more tonal potential.
While the middle and neck positions feature standard single-coil strat pickups, the bridge position holds a humbucker which delivers a beefier, more full-bodied sound than you get from a single-coil pickup.
A five-position blade allows you to choose which pickups you’d like to use to get your sound with the following options:
- Position 1. Bridge Pickup
- Position 2. Bridge and Middle Pickups Together
- Position 3. Middle Pickup
- Position 4. Middle and Neck Pickups Together
- Position 5. Neck Pickup
There are two separate tone knobs, one for the neck pickup and the other for the bridge and middle pickups and a Master Volume control, allowing you to get exactly the sound you’re looking for.
With so many tonal options and potential for versatility, it is no wonder the Stratocaster has been such a popular guitar across all styles of music since the introduction of the original Fender Stratocaster back in 1954 and now with the inclusion of a humbucker, there’s an even wider variety of tones to play with.
Everything You Need – Including an Amp!
Everything you need to start playing guitar is right there in the box.
Of course, there’s the Candy Apple Red Squier Stratocaster but you’ll also find a Squier Frontman 15G amp.
Perfect for practising, the Squier Frontman 15G has on board EQ controls as well as a gain knob and an O.D. switch for you to play around with your sound.
It also features an AUX IN allowing you to connect an audio device so you can play along with your favourite songs or backing tracks while a headphone output means you can practice long into the night without bothering family or neighbours.
An instrument cable is included so you can connect your guitar to the amp along with a pack of picks and a comfortable, durable guitar strap.
Furthermore, you can get access to 30 days of free online lessons so you can start your musical journey off on the right foot.
