Lack of quality control - a pity!
Nick in Venningen, 21.05.2018
After reading so much about Squier's Affinity series and seeing it on YouTube, I chose the Telecasters in Racing Green and ordered it from Thomann.

When the package arrived two days later, I was very excited. The guitar (box in box) was well packed and undamaged by the transport. Well, I did not expect a masterpiece for the prize, but what was packed in the box really knocked me off.

Quality control at Squier did not work. According to the imprint on the back of the headstock, the guitar was made in Indonesia. That surprised me a lot, as I had the opinion that the production takes place in China. Strangely enough, on the Squier website, you will not find this model at all ...

But let's start with the positive:

The color is really the blast! The paint of the Body 1A. The more I am sad that I will send her back.
The weight is perfect, the guitar sits well balanced on the leg.
The Indian Laurel Fingerboard surprised me positively - it's not quite as homogeneous as Rosewood, but looks great and feels good too.
The tuners are running well and the guitar can be precisely tuned.

Now for the little troubles that would not have moved me - had it not been for two greats - to send the guitar back:
The neck is completely untreated. This does not even feel bad, but after some use it may quickly lead to a greasy look. After all, you do not always wash your hands before playing your guitar.
The pots are running quite well, but the buttons (cheapest version!) Grind something. Could you possibly adjust.
The pickup switch is running well, unfortunately, the button is so loose that he probably falls on the stage on the first flying change. Of course you can fix it.
On the back of the neck were several bruises that looked to me like fingernails. This is a shame and unnecessary, but points to poor quality management in production.
The tuner for the 1st string was mounted slightly diagonally. Can you adjust for sure.
The intonation was completely oblique - no strings tuned. Nobody has looked at it. Final check? See below!

But now the two points that moved me to pack the tele immediately:

On the one hand, the bridge PU protruded completely out of the hole towards the first string, including the screw on this side ... I have not seen anything like it before. The PU could not be pressed in either. I did not want to start screwing the screw, but you probably would have to down the strings and remove the pickup. Final check? NOTHING!

On the other hand, the saddle of the bridge in my opinion are simply too wide. That would be but then a serial problem: the 1st string was from the 19th fret outside the neck! I could not fix that by slipping the saddle. Since the string also ran off the pickup outside of the iron rod (the 6th string ran right through the middle) and the tendency across all strings was visible, it all points to the saddles being about 1mm too wide, causing a deviation of about 5mm. 6mm at the 1st string occurs.

My guess: Squier moved the production of this guitar series from China to Indonesia, and the guitar I received was an example of poor quality management in production.

What I really pity is that Thomann - otherwise highly praised for the setting and review of guitars that go into the shipping - has failed completely here. The two extreme errors (pickup and string position) would have been immediately noticed if someone at Thomann had taken the trouble to open the box and watch the guitar. Apparently Thomann does that only for her own brand Harley-Benton.
