Opening this box opens a whole new musical future for you, with a great-sounding, cool-looking and easy-playing Affinity Series™ Strat® guitar, a compact 10-watt Fender Frontman® 10G amp to plug it into and all the accessories you need, including an electronic tuner, instructional DVD, gig bag, cable, strap and picks.
Squier Affinity Series™ Strat® is available in Black and Brown Sunburst, and features three singing, sparkling single-coil pickups on a classic single-ply white pickguard, rock-solid bolt-on maple neck with rosewood Fingerboard, skirted white control knobs and a sharp new gold-and-black Squier headstock logo.

I just bought the Strat® by Fender® and I have to say that it is such a great guitar. I would definitely recommend this product. Even though it is a guitar that has not been made in California, I have to say that it achieves a high quality standard of a Strat® made by Fender®. Let me tell you what were the other two key aspects that have driven me to buy this guitar.
First, the short story starts when I was looking for an electric guitar so that I could improve both my chords and guitar arpeggios. I knew that not only this guitar will be neither my first nor my last electric guitar, but also I was buying within a tight budget.
The second reason, which I had in mind when I bought this guitar, was that I did not have the essential accessories to start playing the guitar. As a result, I should allocate resources to buy not only the guitar, but also the amplifier, cables, electronic tuner, gig bag, etc. Consequently with my thoughts, I needed not only a guitar that was high quality made, but also a guitar that came with all those extra accessories.
As a result, I decided to buy the Affinity Series™ Strat® by Fender®. I hope the reasons that I share with you in this review could help you to decide with your future purchase, which permits you to achieve your initial goals, whether or not you buy this product.

I got a set almost exacly like this once and it was everything i needed to start off learning how to play , all begginers should by sets like these
I played an acoustic before but this is my first electric. It's great to learn on and has great sound for the price. Only comment I have is not to buy Fender instructional video because you get an abbreviated version with the package, it's redundant. But buy the Squier to get off to a good start.
