That Strat neck!
The Strat neck is legendary for its unique feel and response. The “C” profile bolt-on maple neck on the Affinity delivers vintage feel and playability. The Indian laurel fingerboard features 21 medium jumbo frets for comfortable, nearly effortless chording and smooth lead runs — ideal for long nights of jamming and performing. Plus, your leads will soar given the expressive opportunities offered by the synchronous tremolo bridge.
Versatile trio of pickups
The Affinity Strat has been wired for tone with a mind-blowing array of sound shaping at your fingertips. The two single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions arm you with all the classic, punchy tone you’d expect from single-coils. A solo humbucker in the bridge position brings the crunch and growl when you want to get a bit heavier. And with a 5-position blade switch, a master volume, and two tone controls, you have a wide array of sounds to dial in along with near-infinite stylistic colorings to explore.
