I have always thought that this is the classic livery for a Strat....to me they never look better that in a nice sunburst!

This professionally overhauled & upgraded example will make an ideal first guitar purchase, or second/back-up instrument.
Description
Stock Number: VTGC1062.

SPECIFICATION
The current published Specification for the Squier Affinity Strat on the Fender website is as below in edited form....there may well have been changes in the spec. details since this guitar was made, up to the present date....in addition to the ones I have highlighted of the string gauges, tuning machines and the nut width, which clearly measures a more easily playable 42mm., rather than the current, quite rather narrow, 1.6" or 40.6mm.

***Pickups on this guitar are logoed Entwistle XS 65....extract from Entwistle Customs Pickups website - "The XS65 is a single coil with a difference. It has six hard nickel pole pieces with a slightly over wound coil on a stressed field ceramic magnet base. For a single coil, this pickup exudes power, but without sacrificing any of the tonal qualities that we love about single coils. The middle pickup is reverse wound so that hum is cancelled when used in combination with either the neck or bridge pickups."

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS INDIVIDUAL GUITAR
Weight: Approx. 3.3kg./ 7.28lbs....middle of the generally accepted weight range for Fender Strats of 7lbs. to 8.5lbs./ 3.0kg. to 3.8kg.

Combined Guitar + Case weight: 8.9kg./19.6lbs.
Condition
Excellent condition. Minor play-wear/ marking, the minimum you would expect. Slight finish chips in the lower body cutaway, on the top, bass side of the trem and treble side lower bout, are not obvious and entirely superficial, otherwise finish is remarkably clean & bright, as is all the chrome hardware, including the "Fender" logoed tuning machines.

The guitar has been professionally overhauled & set-up, and shows no play wear to the frets or the fingerboard.
Action, strings & cases
Set-up with a good action, on well-aligned fingerboard, of approx. 1.75mm./2.25mm. at 12th. fret.

Fitted 9-46 gauge strings.

Very solid traditional case shown in the photos is included with the guitar....sound/serviceable condition, with some age wear and the odd knock, but affording excellent protection to the guitar.

*** NOTE ON '60s STRATS ***
------------------------------------------------------------

......"The American Vintage '65 Stratocaster, the Standard Stratocaster and the Classic Series '60s Stratocaster all feature 21 frets. All other models feature 22 frets."....https://www.fender.com/articles/how-to/fender-stratocaster-buying-guide-7-strat-models-compared

*** YOUTUBE ***
------------------------------------------------------------

There are many and various YouTube demo clips of Squier Affinity Strats, but I have embedded one of the better sounding (and briefer) ones entitled "Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster" by "intheblues"...unlike many this one is demoed with the trem....and is the same colour finish....just left-handed.
