Gearank Recommendation

The Model #: 0370600506 Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster (SSS) appeared on our recommended list for Single Coil Equipped Solidbody Electric Guitars Under $500 from May 2021 until February 2022 when it was removed due to a lack of availability.


Being under Fender, Squier builds licensed designs which follow the specs and measurements down to the small details, while using more cost-effective materials and manufacturing.

The Affinity Series Stratocaster SSS is a good example, staying true to the traditional Strat doublecutaway body and three single coil pickup configuration.

What makes this distinct though is the use of alder tonewood for the body, which goes beyond the usual alternative used by other manufacturers in this price range.

Other features include a maple neck with 21-fret laurel fingerboard, die cast tuners and a 6-saddle vintage-style synchronized tremolo.
