    Hello, I'm new here and I got my first Strat and it's an Affinity Indonesia. I got it for $77 US equivalent. Is it worth the price? Springs on the saddle are kinda rusted and chrome parts and screws are a little corroded but it all improved when I polished them. I also replace the strings with Elixirs 10. The body is near perfect except for a small paint chip which is barely noticeable. I am a saxophone player and wanted to learn guitar (jazz). The first guitar I got is an Epiphone Casino Coupe (fully hallow) and I love it but I also fell in love with the Strat tone so I decided to get at least a Squire, for now. :)

    Deffinitly worth the price, thing was new 4 years ago for $200.
    Affinitys go for 75 to 100 in my area
    +1 for it not being black

    HNGD! I'm partial to the Indo Affinitys myself. My '12 Strat started life looking pretty much the same as yours (obviously, I've done some modding). I was particularly attracted to the 2 tone sunburst. Found mine for $80 in a pawn shop. Enjoy!

    Welcome to Squier-Talk. Congrats on the new guitar. From what others in your part of the world have posted in teh past, that seems to be a good price.

    I also have a Casino Coupe. Let's have a photo of that too.

    Welcome. Nice looking gee-tar.

    $75US is a good price. As mentioned before, it was $199 new.

    Play it like you stole it. :)

    Hey newbie! Welcome from another forum newbie! Good choice for your first axe!
    BTW - I purchased an ES-335 Pro a couple of years ago, returned it for a Casino Coupe but then returned the Coupe for another ES-335 Pro. All Vintage Sunburst.
