I have an older Squier Affinity Telecaster that I bought to take with me on the road back when I used to travel with work. I didn't want something too valuable that I'd be upset about losing or getting damaged, so I picked up a £99 Affinity (I'd always wanted a 'Telecaster' too so it helped tick that box). Fast forward about 14 years and I now have a 50s Classic MIM Telecaster in the lacquer finish which kind of made the Affinity redundant. I had lots of ideas about what I could do with the Affinity, but never really got round to doing anything about it as it seemed I'd end up replacing almost everything on the guitar. However a recent holiday in Cuba gave me the itch to get a 'Surf Green' guitar (since so many of the cars and even buildings seemed to be a similar colour). After some discussion on another thread about Affinity Teles*, the idea of modifying the Tele into an Esquire (but with a Seymour Duncan little '59 single coil sized humbucker instead) and refinishing it in Surf Green was born. Ira7 suggested two names and I've gone for 'Cubacaster' as a reminder of a great holiday... * http://www.tdpri.com/threads/tell-me-about-the-affinity-teles.610923/page-2 This is the Affinity before: Not bad condition for a 14 year old guitar that has been taken around the UK and across to Ireland. It's an unusual colour too, but I've never been that mad about it myself. It was all they had in the shop at the time.
