These were the predecessor to the Affinity Models. These were made in Korea, and were meant to be a starter guitar. I happen to love these guitars. I have a blonde one. they are lighter than a standard Stratocaster, so easier to use in practice. I would argue that the pickups are the real value here, as they are wound with less precision and more uniqueness than today’s Affinity model, giving them character as well as punch. This one is a wonderful example of that combination. Rosewood fingerboard on maple neck…a remarkably clean body and almost new pickguard.

This guitar was made in Korea just prior to Squire moving most of their production to China. The body is 1.5″ at the strap, like a modern Affinity. For me the value of these guitars is in the pickups. If you know Squier guitars, you know these are a sought after version of the stratocaster. This one is in excellent condition. Check it out.
Lorien Guitar Recovery Refurbished Instruments
In addition to selling newer factory refurbished instruments, Lorien Guitar Recovery is in the business of recovering unique older Epiphone, Squier, Mexican Fender, and other mid-range guitars for resale.
This instrument was refurbished by Lorien Guitar Recovery. Unlike a typical used guitar, this one was completely checked out, and tested by skilled guitar Technicians, and then put through a multi-point refresh and refurbish process
Our Refurbish Process
First we inspect the instrument for any physical or functional issues or damage. If the instrument has too much damage or does not meet minimum requirements, it is disassembled for parts and recycled; if it meets basic requirements it is refurbished. This is what we do:
Too many used instruments get rejected, and tossed into a closet, or outright thrown away, or sent to thrift stores. And too many people, who should be able to learn an instrument, can’t afford to buy one or only one that is hard to play.
We believe every instrument should have a second chance, and every aspiring guitar player, should have a chance to buy a good guitar, at a fair price…. This is one of those guitars…. Don’t let it pass you by…. I offer my guitars at a fair price, but open the option for a best offer. We have to reject low-ball offers, but always consider honest ones. Try it; I may be in a good mood today! If you have a low budget or no budget, let us know. We’ll do our best to get you an instrument that is playable and affordable.
Thanks for Looking…
