    Can You Help Me With My Serial Number? Black Squire P-Bass

    Black Squire (Affinity possible) P-Bass. I am the original owner. When I was younger, I wanted a clear headstock so I scratched off all of the info on the headstock. :) 20 years later I looked at the neck of the P-Bass and it shows the info attached in the picture. Manufacture date is...

    Help me identify this guitar - Is this a Squier Affinity?

    I recently purchased a second-hand squier affinity as said in the advert, but I have some doubts about whether it is an Affinity or Bullet, the fender official serial registration returns an Affinity in the same color (product number: 0310700505), but different pickguard and most importantly its...

    Is there any major differences between an affinity from 2008 vs the modern affinity teles?

    Looking to possibly buy an affinity tele. Most of the stuff i see online is people talking about how the newer ones are. how would the quality compare to an SE Strat and CV60s Jazz bass? Those are my current guitars.

    Squier affinity vs bullet telecaster

    I want to pick up a squier telecaster, what would be a better choice, bullet or affinity? I would be replacing the tuners, nut and pickups regardless. Much of a difference between the two?

    Two-point tremolo on the 2021 Affinity Jazzmasters

    Hello! Does anyone know if the two-point tremolo system on the new affinity jazzmasters is identical to the ones that are on the affinity stratocasters? I am asking because I want to replace the tremolo block on my affinity jazzmaster in order to be able to use a longer tremolo arm with an M5...

    Happy Thanksgiving from Hawaii!

    New member here. I've been practicing on and off for a couple years, but have been taking my progression more seriously lately. This has opened the floodgates of gear/ guitar upgrades and here I am. I've got an Affinity Telecaster and love it. Looking to learn from this community and contribute...

    Can’t let go of my Affinity…

    The idea was that I’d sell the 2021 Affinity to help pay for the CV 60s Telecaster I recently purchased. However, I just can’t seem to justify selling it at such a low cost when it’s such a good guitar and has sentimental value. This was the first electric guitar I purchased since picking...

    Should I upgrade the pups in my Affinity?

    With my CV50 being worked on, I am wondering if I should go ahead and upgrade the pups in my Affinity, or just keep it as is? If I do upgrade I’m thinking of going with some Alnico 5s as my CV50 has 3s.

    Trem Block Upgrade for 2021 Squier Affinity Strat

    Hello everyone, I recently purchased a 2021 Squier Affinity FMT HSS Strat (flame maple top). I am slowly upgrading the guitar piece by piece, and so far have new Alnico V pickups and CTS pots installed. I have also refinished the neck in Tru-Oil to give it a gloss look which I prefer. My next...

    Sunburst YN7 Affinity Strat

    Hi all! So I picked this up a while ago and seems I might have found something pretty decent. It was dirty and covered in stickers and I got it because it looked like it had spent most of its life in the back of a cupboard and would clean up nicely. I can’t find sunburst YN7 models listed...

    Squier Affinity CY00 Deep Purple

    Hi everyone!, I recently got a Squier Stratocaster Affinity from 2000, it has a CY serial number, the things is, I wonder if this strat is 100% real, it looks very nice and I read that squier made deep purple ones only in transition years like 2000, but mine has the back metal plate without the...

    Modding a Squier Affinity Jazzmaster HH, need help finding suitable parts

    Hi! I'm new here, so I hope I'm doing this right. I originally posted this on Reddit, and they advised me to come here. So I'm planning on buying a Squier Affinity Jazzmaster to do some mods. I have a good idea of what I want to do, and I have included a basic (and crudely photoshopped) mockup...

    FSR Affinity in Olympic White vs (New) Affinity in Olympic White

    Hey guys, I got an FSR affinity in Olympic white a couple of months ago and have been pretty damn happy with it with the minor inconvenience of the color not being as creamy (?) as I'd wanted. That model however seems to be pretty limited cause I could barely find reviews and comparisons. The...

    Build quality of a 1996 Affinity versus a COB08 Bullet Stratocaster

    Hi, hope all of you are healthy and safe. I picked a 96 affinity strat (YN6) to make a profit, but while searching on the net about its specs, also read positive replies about it on this and other forums. In Turkey it is hard to buy a set as a student so I plan to sell it to get a bullet and...

    Does anyone have any info on this Squier Affinity?

    Hey everyone, this is my first post. A few days ago i bought this Squier Affinity Strat. I paid about 150USD, and i have been trying to find any info about it. It's my first guitar so i don't know too much about this world. The seller included a guitar amp too, a Laney HCM30R, which, i can't...

    New Revamped Squier Affinity 2021 Line

    Hi all, First post! Don't know if this is the right place since it's about more than just Strats but there's no Affinity board so oh well! Don't know if this has already been discovered (I haven't been able to find anyone talking about it online, though). If you go to certain retailers (such as...

    Upgrade with Fender Tex Mex worth it

    A cheap Squier Telecaster Affinity, some soldering and adjustment of the pickguard in order to make the neck p'up fit. No wiring-, pot- or switch change. Groundwire of the bridge p'up had to be enlarged. Sound experience in comparison to the original pickups: Clearer and much better definition...

    Affinity pickguard question

    I recently came across a 2009 Made in Indonesia Affinity Strat at a second hand store, it looked like it was never even played and I got it for $135. I'd like to put a black pickguard on it but when I look online for them they only say they are for Fender Strats. This wouldn't worry me at all if...

    Should I return my Squier Jazz Bass?

    Im under a pretty tight budget of $245, I know I want a jazz bass of some kind and im not really looking at Ibanez or Cort because I don't know how they play. I've narrowed it down to two choices, the Squier Affinity Jazz Bass or a Harley Benton JB-75. I actually already ordered the Squier Jazz...

    97 Affinity but in Sunburst?

    Hello, Long story short: in 97/98 I bought a Squier Affinity in Sunburst. Great guitar but I was too young to appreciate it. And sold it few years later.. Now I am entering some sort of middle age/sentimental crisis since I really want it back, at least the same model. After few months of...

    Oh Jeez, I'm leaning towards a Tele now...

    I never thought I would, but I am seriously leaning towards acquiring an Affinity Tele. Now, I love a lot about my Affy Strat, enven the 40.6mm nut, and the Squier Strat in general as I was even considering buying that LE Strat pack with the Oly White Bullet Strat with maple board. But me...
