    I picked up this purple Affinity I think it's a 2007 fat Strat. It sounds great and the neck has tinted from the years feels fantastic. I want to turn it into SSS and put a loaded pickguard on there should anything fit and affinity ? This guitar really is great P_20191012_152221_LL.jpg P_20191012_152221_LL.jpg

    Maybe put a push-pull pot in it to split the humbucker and have the best of both worlds.

    The guitar feels so good and the neck plays so great I overlooked the humbucker. I am kind of traditionalist old-fashioned like three single coils aesthetically also. But it will be a fun project guitar I think thanks for the comment.

    The color is listed by Squier as 'Metallic Blue' even though the metal flake is pretty much non existant.....

    I thought it would be a project guitar to mess around with but I can't really find anything wrong with it! It plays great
