    Squier Affinity Telecasters are great guitars, even more so the Butterscotch Blonde! :D

    If you weren't already planning to do so, consider shielding the neck, bridge, and controls cavities with copper tape when you do the replace the pickups.

    My Afinity sports a parchment coloured guard,( shows like it's more white in the pic), Only thing I don't like about my Afinity is the bulbous toggle switch, one day I will get round to changing it, possibly ..

    I might be mistaken, but I don't think @Eddie even has this guitar anymore.

    That's a nice long flight for a switch, I've done many road trips to buy guitars, pedal or bits but I've never done a sky trip..hahaha

    My bullet has the same pickups as the pack affinity used to have. In fact, apart from the body colour, 21 fret and different fretboard(I have a green bullet) they as are identical.

    Really love the Butterscotch color. Maple fretboard, no so much or at all. I have a Bullet FSR I bought here on ST, fantastic and a Affinity in name only YN7 . And an Austin I need a decent fretboard for, so it mostly sits.

    These are fantastic guitars and incredible value for money. I have two (one white) and I've used them extensively in live situations. I have been impressed by how well they can be set up. I did do a little work on fret ends and the nut but that was it. I decided to upgrade the pickups on one but put them back - they do the job and sound fine and it's a very quiet guitar. Frankly I can't honestly say that through body stringing makes all that much difference - it's just tradition; Affinities are fine guitars.
