If you love Fender, odds are, you love the Telecaster. From its rich history starting out named the Broadcaster to its tone that has been played for decades by legends, it’s simply an icon. And you immediately get this impression when looking at the Squier Affinity Telecaster. The scintillating Slick Silver finish beautifully complements the chrome hardware and white pickguard, making you look both stylish and professional. Elements like the knurled flat-top controls and single-cutaway body add splashes of recognisable class that will have you feeling like you can take on any song. Own your version of history.
Having smooth playability makes all the difference. Which is why Squier have adapted the classic Telecaster construction in this model. The ''C''-shaped neck fits snug in your hand making it easier for you to slide up and down the neck. Reap the benefit of silky-smooth playability that makes for easier fretting, riffing, and soloing. Plus, the Affinity Tele's maple neck injects your tone with distinctive brightness and subtle sustain too. So, you won't only fall in love with the look of this guitar, but the experience of it as well.
Vintage duo of searing single-coils
It's a renowned instrument. But you're an individual. Although this model remains true to the original Telecaster design of two single-coil pickups and a three-way selector, that doesn’t mean you can’t sound modern. You’ll find that the vintage single-coil Tele pickups are incredibly versatile. From bright and twangy at the bridge-position to more warm and mellow at the neck, it’s effortless for you to inject your own nuances and project your style. Whatever that may be. Manipulate the volume and tone controls for even more control over your sound and create a tone that cuts through.
Accessible Affinity, within your reach. The Affinity Series Telecaster has a proud heritage, taking after the Fender Telecaster which has been seen in the hands of some of music's finest guitarists. The classic contoured alder body is the same world-renowned style used by a range of musicians, from Bruce Springsteen to Status Quo, it's presence can be felt in many a classic rock anthem. And thousands more. Expect supreme playability as well as a great tone. This is style for the stage, and versatility to see you through almost any sonic scenario.
