Depends a lot on what you consider "decent", if you're willing to buy used and if you can do your own guitar work. The Affinity is OK but has some quirks, most notably the thin body and neck profile. You really need to try one to see if it works for you. Also, typical Strat replacement parts don't fit it well due to the size difference. The Squier Standard is very good at the price point. I have one that I bought used for $27 due to damage and it cleaned up really nicely. Classic Vibe, Contemporary and Vintage Modified (recently discontinued) are also quite good. I like the VM models better since they mix some old and new features. Used prices for Squiers are all over the place. You're as likely to find them selling for almost, or even more than, new retail as you are finding fantastic deals. You have to be patient and ready to pounce. As for Fenders, the new Player series is very good, a cut above the old Standard, but you'll pay for it. You may find some NOS Standards around from some dealers at great prices. I've noticed that used prices on Standards have been creeping upward recently. It used to be you could find them in the $275 to $375 range but, unless you're lucky, add at least another $50 to that. Watch out for badly modded examples.
