Hear the new Squier Affinity guitars in action

Video demos have been released for all of the models.

Squier’s new Affinity range landed just before Summer NAMM 2021, and thanks to a new set of demos from Fender, we can now hear all of them in action.

Squier Affinity Telecaster Models

There are two Telecaster models in the range, the standard Telecaster and the Telecaster Deluxe. The former is based on an old-school, single-coil-loaded Tele, while the latter has a pair of Humbuckers and a Les Paul-like arrangement of Volume and Tone controls. Both feature a C-shaped neck profile and split-shaft tuner.

The new Affinity Stratocaster comes in three configurations: the standard three-single-coil model, a dual-humbucker model and a flame-maple-topped HSS model. Like the Telecasters, it sports a C-shaped neck profile and split-shaft tuners,

Squier Affinity Jazzmaster

The Squier Affinity Jazzmaster now comes with a vibrato tailpiece, as opposed to the hardtail of its predecessor. It also now sports two Jazzmaster single-coils, rather than humbuckers

Squier Affinity bass guitars

The Affinity bass offerings for 2021 include a Jaguar bass, a precision bass PJ and a four- and five-string Jazz bass. The Jaguar bass features a slightly shorter scale of 32 inches and a single humbucker for stripped-back approachability, while the Precision Bass PJ has a split single-coil P Bass middle pickup and a single-coil J Bass bridge pickup. The Jazz bass models both have a pair of single coils.
