Thought I would share my squier affinity mods I’ve been chipping away at. I picked up the guitar for a handful of coins, it looked like it had been well used but I instantly loved the feel of the chunky neck. Not sure what year it is because the serial no. has been scrubbed off. The body is 4.5cm thick. I’m assuming it’s an affinity because it is (was) a top loader. I’m trying to keep this guitar as low cost as possible. This is my first adventure into doing guitar mods. I’ve done the following mods so far - black tusq nut - tusq string trees - changed the white pick guard to Matt black - Donlis bridge pickup ( very cheap but I’m really liking it) -custom shop Texas special neck pickup -changed top loading bridge plate to a squier/fender standard string through bridge with saddles I’ve just done the string through mod ( despite lots of “don’t do it” reccomnendations) and I could not be happier with the results. My main issue with the top loader was the rattle in the saddles and I couldn’t get the string height were I wanted it without loose saddles. I took my time measuring the bridge placement and used some great advice from you kind folk on this forum. The saddles are now rock solid. The action feels a lot better. It’s made a big difference. It intonates and ferrules at the back are actually pretty darn close to being straight! My mate has given me a 4 way switch with CTS 250 pots. So next job is to rewire with the 4 way switch and a 0.033 capacitor.
