Comments about Squier Affinity Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

This is a great guitar except for the pickups, which are worse than horrible. It looks good, it feels good, great neck, beautiful body, color and finish. If you want to plug it to an amp you MUST buy better pickups. I can't believe Fender are putting such garbage on their squiers.

I own a 1999 Affinity Strat and the electronics are not good either, but are MUCH MUCH BETTER than this.
