He was sure enough impressed with the feel of the Aff Strat. I wish he would have plugged it in to compare tones.
For sure. For a master builder, the things he focused on surprised me, but in a refreshing way. Feel means a lot to me. Pretty cool his #1 is an '85 Squier as well....
Great video. Saw it earlier today. Really kind of opens your eyes a bit as to what is important and what he looks for.
I just watched this before I came here. It was a really good video!
Well, that was a surprise.
Great video, thanks for sharing.
Just like this vid was made for our group. Very cool!
Fender Master Builder humors Phil and his quest for low budget Squier Stratocasters. 15 minutes of fame.
Interesting, but hardly a real evaluation of the Squier line as a whole.
I thought that was interesting how he picks..
I agree though, how the neck feels to you is the biggest thing , price doesn’t really matter so much.
I agree with you here kiddo, I thought his dismissing of the CV with something that would be put right with a set up was a bit trivial, Interesting watch and listen though.
Just out of curiosity, isn't the Affi the same 9.5 neck radius and string spacing at the bridge as the CV strat?
I think they are all 9.5 but im almost sure it was the finish he didn't like.
Yeah, the finish, and the high E being too close to the edge, which would have matched vintage specs apparently. Can't say I blame him, I don't like when the high E is too close to the edge either, but i'm pretty sure it can be fixed by the nut? Also, as he mentioned he could simply sandpaper the back of the neck down. I'm sure in a tone comparison the CV would have won, but as he said, playability and feel is really what he is after.
