That Affinity has a very 'Prince' vibe to it.
Both amazing looking guitars
I love your build, beautiful job.
Pine CAN have an interesting "figure" and your "butcher block" lamination is a good approach because Pine WILL warp fast. Pine also has an interesting resonance that makes it pretty unique and appealing, Bill Kirchen - "King Of Dieselbilly" (Hotrod Lincoln fame) made using Pine for a body somewhat popular.
Pine is just too soft for my tastes in building though, I prefer Basswood instead if that's the resonance you want and it's a look "harder" in comparison. Several Japanese and S Korean guitar makers (Fujigen Gakki Japan, and Shaehan and Cortek in S Korea) found the best methods using native Asian Basswoods that are more resonant then western species. A lot of the more popular Ibanez guitars made by Fujigen and Tokai, are Basswood, along with Japanese Alder.
Gorgeous guitar, just don't bang in around.
