Squier Affinity Stratocaster - Budget-Friendly Electric Guitar, Ideal for Beginners, with Laurel Fingerboard, and a Race Red Finish

For more than three decades, Squier guitars have been widely regarded as arguably the best budget-friendly alternative to their infamous Fender counterparts, and they continue to do so to this day.

With the Affinity series, Squier seem to have perfected the art of keeping the price down, whilst ensuring the quality is arguably the best available on the market in the sub-£200 price range.

Make Your First Guitar a Good One!

With this Squier Affinity Stratocaster you get a stunning entry into the Affinity Lineup, with an all-new Laurel fretboard, classic-sounding single coil pickups, and a gorgeous Race Red finish.

Featuring a modern "C"-shaped neck profile, stylish chrome hardware, and even a two-colour headstock logo, this guitar looks and feels great, and would make the ideal choice for a complete beginner looking to take their first steps on the road to rock stardom.

"C"-Shaped Neck Profile

Designed to offer comfort, whatever your playstyle, the "C"-Shape has been the most prevalent neck profile since the 1960s. This shape fits nicely into your hand, allowing your fingers to comfortably wrap around the fretboard, and granting you comfortable levels of access to each and every note.

Classic Strat Pickup Configuration

Whether you want to play some nice, clean, wholesome pop music, or downright dirty blues-rock, these are the pickups for you. With three distinct sounding pickups, and a 5-way configurator switch for you to choose which are active, the voicings on this guitar range from smooth and mellow, through to bright and biting, with that familiar Strat "Quack" sound sitting somewhere inbetween.

Comfortable Body Design

One of the key features of the Stratocaster guitar, from it's original outing in 1954, to its modern-day counterparts, is the ergonomic body design. Perfectly curved to sit comfortably against your body, whether you're sitting or standing, the Strat body shape is one that has withstood the test of time, and is the most commonly replicated body of the past six decades.

You only need to play a strat once to see just why they're widely regarded as the most popular guitar around.
