Today I bought off ebay a 1999 Squier Affinity strat, made in Indonesia. Are Affinity's from Indonesia rare? The guitar is in wonderful condition - lightly scuffed pickguard, very few body scratches, and no chipped paint, but the guitar has obviously been played because of an abundance of gunk on the neck and up near the headstock. She has been well-loved AND well cared-for. Even the chrome is spotless and when I removed the knobs, there was a lot of gunk under them, but also a lot of the plastic film from the pickguard still remaining. Pretty good for an 11 year old guitar! I have only had a few minutes to play the guitar, but first impressions tell me that it sounds wonderful! I bought it as a platform to mod (pickup swap), but so far I'm so impressed that I don't think I will, Maybe just the neck or middle. The guitar has a skunk stripe (no longer found on Affinity's) and a solid black headstock decal (also no longer found), and she is a wonderful Navy blue colour, Baltic Blue, or Cobalt Blue maybe, but certainly NOT the Metallic Blue of the current models. I tried to take pics, but I couldn't get any that did justice to the colour, so I will take some tomorrow in the sunlight.
