Don't underestimate #4 in a bar fight, a heavier guitar means better impact.
There's a bunch out there, here's one
Don't give up on it so quickly. It's trying to get to know you
You're Scottish. I'm Jewish.
No further explanation required.
But my mum is neither.
Some of us get our heritage from injection (literally), and others, environment.
I just got the same one, no tuning issues, sounds great. Feels marvelous (put my size strings, a little graphite in the nut slots, tweaked the saddles with a clip-on tuner). Ready for the stage. Frets were well dressed. Go figure.....
Just played her at practice (we jam at gig volume and I tend to play harder), held tune ok, 1 retune in 2 hours. Did not use my pedals but rode the volume with 1 fuzz. Color me happy.
Five reasons that
Is better than the honest truth.
There's nothing wrong with an inexpensive, giggable guitar you can hide behind the bar. Or give, on impulse, to a kid who has no guitar that could really use one.
All true. Affinities have some different specs than Americans, most notably the spacing of the bridge screws. It's no small feat to put a quality aftermarket bridge on an Affinity.
I upgraded my Squier to pro grade.
The problem is the player hasn't been upgraded to pro quality.
I'd suggest this is even possible with an Affinity if you choose carefully and get one with a good neck. Where you might run up costs here though is in labor because to attach a new bridge you have to fill the old screw holes and drill new ones. So if you don't have a handy buddy who will work for beer, a CV might be a better place to start.
If you can do it all yourself, and lots of people on this forum can, you can blow away a MIA for $500-$600.
I really dont find anything wrong with the current affinty 6 saddle bridge . I dabbed a tinybit of loctite in a couple of spots and no rattle or vibration caused movement. Its the pickups that really need an upgrade. The stock ones are good for a start but they need some improvement for pro situations.
Nah, my eyes and ears would confirm it is the subordinate guitar to an American Fender. Doesn't mean that Squiers are bad guitars, just that you get what you pay for. And from what I hear, Squiers are a good bang for the buck.
There's nothing "subordinate" about a Squier IMO. Certainly not in terms of tone. No reliability issues have yet reared their head for me either (mine are about 5 years old with stock electronics). I'm not stranger to "high end" guitars either.
Well, he was looking for a response.
For the money Squires are great guitars, but better than Fenders....
This thread is over 4 years in the making AND it will go for another 4 years if the admins allow it.....this is one of those debates/questions that has no real answer.....all there is, let me repeat that....ALL THERE IS....is opinions and personal favorites....that's all there ever will be....opinions....one is no better than the other....have at it....

I'm not sure where you get the idea that this thread is over 4 years old comes from... There are lots of old brand/opinion threads on TDPRI but this one is pretty new. It started this month, this year and the video it pertains to was put on Youtube a few days before the thread.
Anyway, there's always something interesting, outrageous or funny to read on these discussions.
