What is the history of the Affinity strat?
When did it start? How much have the features/specs changed over the years?

Thanks

Affinity started in 1997 with the NC7 and YN7. Started with full thickness body, 22 frets, 8 screw pickguard, and trap tuners.

Consolidated to CY98 in 1998 ... and then things changed.

The Affinity info isn't detailed, but it lists the variations and years.

I have a 2003 on borrow from a friend and I am really loving the neck. I wonder how much the profile has changed?
Thanks for the link
I’m not sure about the 2003s, but my 21 has a very slim neck and body. Super easy to play. I suspect once I upgrade the pickups it will get more playtime than my cv50 Strat.
