Got this Affinity lefty strat last year for peanuts during an EOFY sale. With new pickups, nut and full scalloped board, the mods cost more than the guitar. :lol:

But I love playing it. It's my first foray into a full scalloped board and got accustomed to it quickly, I might do something similar to one or 2 of my RGs.

I see you have it set up as a righty. That's awesome! Did you do the scallop work yourself? I've never tried a scalloped guitar but want to, eventually.

No, I got my long term tech to do it. He's done some scalloping before and this was the second time he's done one for me (first was the top 4 frets of my Ibanez Glaive).

Just a heads up they now have Cabronita Baritones for $249.99 on ProAudioStar.


Says used, but I bought used a few weeks from them and got a brand new guitar, hang tags and plastic wrapped still in squier box. YMMV but good deal even if used.

They got another stock of Squiers in. Pulled the trigger on a black/black/maple Affinity Tele Deluxe to go with my pink one.

You should share a pic of the one you got.

It’s such a good deal. I took a look at the price of the Squier 60s classic Vibe Jazzmaster I bought a month ago for $280 and now it’s $460. Big price jump on the Squier stuff.

That looks awesome. It's getting harder anymore to justify spending crazy money on similar guitars.
