Exquisite tonal balance
Fantastic tone in any key. A wonderful blend of high-calibre tonewoods makes the Affinity Strat HSS a supremely versatile instrument that sounds amazing at any pitch. Enjoy full-bodied tones with plenty of depth courtesy of a solid alder body. This will give each chord you strike dominating power and voice.

Solo with incisive sharpness. A maple neck and Indian laurel fingerboard combination can give each and every note punchy brightness. These woods provide a dynamic mid-range and scintillating high-end to complement the alder's bass-heavy qualities. A brilliant all-round guitar to help you achieve any sound you desire.

Incredible playing comfort
Supreme playability. A C-shaped neck profile helps you play as freely as possible, for as long as possible. The profile is specifically designed to sit perfectly in the palm of your fret-hand. This eliminates hand cramp and allows you to practice for long periods to hone your skills, or exhilarate audiences with live performances that can go on and on.

Furthermore, the Affinity Fat Strat's maple neck is extremely smooth. This allows you to glide up and down the frets with ease. You'll be able to play at rapid speed comfortably with a neck that's built for soloing and fast-paced playing. The sleek, comfortable profile is well-suited to players of all ability levels.

Unlimited choice of sound
Access extensive sonic possibilities. The Squire Fat Strat is loaded with a HSS (humbucker, single-coil, single-coil) pickup configuration. This extremely versatile electronic setup will give you wide-ranging choice of tone to suit any style.

The two single-coil pickups will provide you with nuanced, punchy sounds. Your playing will be able to achieve biting aggression and brightness. The humbucking bridge pickup can provide darker, more powerful tones to give your music added depth. This pickup is also an expert at eliminating unwanted noise interference, ensuring you always play with fantastic clarity.

Finally, a 5-way switching system gives the finishing touches to this fantastic pickup system. You can choose which pickups are active and find the perfect sound to suit you. The Squire Strat HSS has you covered regardless of genre, giving you everything from powerful rock sounds through to jazz, funk, country, pop, blues, and everything in between. Free your creativity.

Stunningly stylish
Stratocasters are iconic. This is a given. Alongside their supreme sound quality, it's also their outstanding, fashionable aesthetic that has assured their passing into music legend. This Squier Affinity Stratocaster has all of the striking style of the Stratocasters that have gone before it, and more.
