I just purchased an Affinity Tele (2016) at Guitar Center. The sound, tone, workmanship and set-up are spot on. I chose the Butterscotch Blond (alder with maple/maple neck/fingerboard). Although I prefer to buy American, this Chinese guitar is awesome for the price, a mere $200! The only feature that's not quite accurate is the butterscotch finish, although this doesn't bother me in the least. The finish is quite attractive, a touch more amber-orange than the typical butterscotch. Anybody else care to comment on the value of this model?
