Tolle Gitarre - gut verarbeitet
Dodu909, 27.06.2021
Ich bin wirklich erstaunt über die sehr gute Verarbeitungsqualität. Bis auf einen Lackeinschluss ist die Gitarre einwandfrei und sauber verarbeitet. Die Farbe ist ein Traum. Der Hals und die Bünde sind einwandfrei. Der Volumenregler eiert etwas. Die Gitarre ist auch etwas brummemfindlicher als meine Mexiko Strat. Aber für den Preis ein wirkliches Top-Instrument. Ich kann das gute Stück jedenfalls weiterempfehlen und würde sie immer wieder kaufen.

Ich habe keinen Vergleich zu anderen Telecaster. Ich bin mit dem Klang mehr als zufrieden.

Fender Squier Affinity Telecaster Lake Placid Blue review
This review is on a guitar made in Indonesia in 2021, sold by Thomann, Germany.
First off, let me say I have been a loyal Thomann customer for years, having bought six or so guitars and a plethora of music stuff from them along the way, always been happy, both with the product and their customer service. The guitars bought, which have never been too fancy ones, mostly basic Harley Benton models - LPs, 12string electric, Jazz Bass, etc., have always arrived shockingly fast, were nicely set up and almost instantly playable. I have posted several reviews full of praise earlier. Something must have changed though...
Early in the week, I pulled trigger on this beautifully looking blue Squier telly, as there has been a vacant spot in my guitar rack for a while and this looker seemed simply irresistible. Delivery was super fast – advised to arrive presumably on Thursday or Friday, it actually reached my doorstep as early as on Wednesday. After the usual unboxing chore (no more air-filled plastic pads, just paper, thanks Thomann), I set off to inspect the actual object of desire. At 222 EUR, I was not expecting miracles, yet I do and did have a couple of Squiers in my life and there was an expected standard level in my mind. Sadly, what I looked at and touched this time failed to meet this standard by leaps.
I thought I would send the instrument back right away. Being a bit of a guitar geek myself though, I finally decided otherwise and embraced the challenge, considering it yet another deep DIY remake bench project. Minor gripes aside, such as that both the steel control knobs fell off the pot shafts at the moment I turned the guitar upside down, there were more worrying flaws to tackle, the most critical one being that the strings ran totally off axis, almost popping off the fretboard at the highest neck positions. The neck seems to be sitting in the pocket nice and tough, the problem is obviously on the bridge plate side, which had been installed some 2mm off the central axis. How could this have slipped Fender’s QC attention is a mystery to me.
Another huge annoyance is the neck itself – advertised as satin back, it is actually a rough-cut, unfinished something I would not dare touching without previous fine sanding and oiling. Same goes with the fretboard – it has not seen any lube in its life, is totally parched, almost as if coated by mould and already suffering from minor cracks. The neck also feels chubbier than the proclaimed modern C that I have on my other guitars, the frets are rather on the jumbo side, unfinished and uncrowned, there are visible rough machine tool scratches on their tops, no levelling or polishing has obviously taken place. Frets are also unevenly high, making the sound die totally at certain positions when the strings are bent. To my surprise, the fret edges could have been worse, they seem to be reasonably smooth, as if somebody took special care to address this very issue and left all the others unanswered.
I have not cared enough to plug the guitar in yet, not in this condition. Perhaps I will update my review when the construction flaws have been fixed.
To sum up – I will keep the guitar, because the blue finish is rare and awesome, I do like it. Plenty of work will have to be put in though – unmount the bridge plate, seal the five screw holes, re-drill them in the right positions and reinstall the bridge assembly, fine-sand the back of the neck and wax it, level the frets, polish them and set up the action, lube the fingerboard, restring for something reasonable, the stock strings are total rubbish, tune up, plug, play and see what happens. There is promise in the dry sound of the guitar, so will see, perhaps she will be a winner after all this hassle...
Pros:
• body finish – very nice colour and fabrication
• strings through the body
• solid unplugged sound coming straight from the tonal woods
• octaves in tune
• smoothed fret edges
Cons:
• strings not aligned with the neck
• bridge plate mounted off axis, in need of complete reinstall
• back of the neck is rasp, almost scaled-like
• frets unlevelled and unfinished
• fingerboard dry, already displaying minor cracks
• neck feels chubbier/clumsier than advertised
• pot control knobs do not hold in place
• as received, the guitar is unplayable and overall feels unfinished
• does not inspire musically as is
• contrary to the manufacturer’s claim, definitely not recommended to beginners or someone who cannot perform relatively substantial repairs and adjustments on their own
Here comes my verdict – it is okay to make “cheap” instruments (even if I have seen many cheaper ones that were executed better), it is not okay to make them with elementary construction flaws and sell them in an unplayable state.

Diese Gitarre ist mehr wert als sie kostet
Tom Bellee, 03.07.2021
Zuerst vorweg: wir reden hier über eine Gitarre, die nur 220,-EUR kostet. Sie macht alles, wie eine richtige Telecaster: aussehen, klingen, anfühlen - nur eben nicht perfekt und das liegt allein nur am Preis.
Was fällt positiv auf?
- im Prinzip aus dem Karton spielbar: passabel eingestellt.
- 6-Reiter-Bridge, die Saiten gehen durch den Korpus, Bierbauchfräsung hinten. Das ist mehr als Standard!
- Schöne Metallicfarbe, recht anständig verarbeitet.
- Recht gute Mechaniken, sauber gefeilter Sattel.
- Lässt sich sauber intonieren und die Elektrik-Bauteile sind schon ganz okay.

Gibt es (preisbedingte) Nachteile?
- der Korpus ist etwa 5 mm dünner als das Original
- der Korpus ist aus Pappel (!)
- der Halstonabnehmer klingt matt und belegt
- die Bünde muss man selbst noch polieren
- die Gitarre ist eine Diva und reagiert sehr empfindlich auf Temperatur und Luftfeuchtigkeit. Das heißt, die Saitenlage ändert sich ganz oft im fühlbaren Bereich. Hoffentlich stabilisiert sich dass, wenn die Hölzer irgendwann getrocknet sind.

Das ist eine coole und preiswerte Gitarre! Besser, als man glaubt, aber keinesfalls frei von Problemen. Als Zweitinstrument oder als Bastelobjekt zum Tunen durchaus zum empfehlen! Mir gefällt sie, weil ich akzeptiere, dass diese Tele kein Profi-Instrument ist.
