Nice, buti na lang in-up mo yung thread, di ko to makita eh.

Depends on my mood.

normally mas gusto ko tunog ng single coils over HBs. The Suhr pickups installed on the butterscotch add the right attitude to the twang, esp for blues/ country blues. may pagka-sophisticated yung dating. mas magaan rin siya because of the alder body. the custom is agathis.

But there are days na namimiss ko yung iyak ng humbuckers. pag gusto ko mag-feeling rockstar yung custom yung ikinakabit ko sa kwarto.  :-D of the two the neck of the custom also has a nicer feel.

I guess I like em both, and hard-pressed to let go of either one. they're completely different guitars.  :-)

Galing akong Yupangco kanina. Actually wala silang stocks ng mga Squier Tele. Nakita ko lang na Squier Tele yung sig guitar ni Avril. Iinform nila ako pag dumating na ang mga stocks. Ang Affinity daw is 9k-10k (di sila sure kasi tumaas daw yung price) yung standard ata is 12k. May 10% discount daw pag cash ang bayad mo. Oo nga... mahirap mag-ipon pag malapit ng mag college. Bibilhin ko yung akin sa Yupangco.  :-D Ganda talaga ng mga guitar sa Yupangco. Ang daming Fenders!  :-D

Sir, 11,950php ang saktong price ng Squier Standard Tele. I bought mine last august and if I'm not mistaken all of the Standard teles ran out nung September pa raw at wala pa raw balita kung kelan magkakaron ulet according to a yupangco employee, and about comparison sa affinity wala akong idea. pero not to be bragging or anything, ok na ok ang Standard Tele ng Squier (Indonesian). i was lucky enough to compare it to a 1991 Fender Tele (MIJ) and di masyadong nagkakalayo sa craftsmanship ng guitar overall and feel ng neck. pero sa pups rineg ang difference, but not really noticeable to the average listener. and also about the 16k na standard na binebenta sa classifieds...well mark-up lang un ng seller kase limited lang ang stock ng Standard Telecasters at wala ka nang makukuha sa yupangco as of now, He's just taking advantage of the rarity and demand of that guitar. and by the way, share ko lang experience ko sa "Vintage Modified" na series of Squier Strats (Crafted in India)..well i have to say that i was rather disappointed, cosmetics were GREAT don't get me wrong pero yung feel ng neck and tone was just above average for my taste and i feel na not worth it ung guitar for the price of 16k. Overall ang marerecomend ko sa line-up ng Squier na available sa pinas..well sa ngayon wala na or wala pang bagong dateng ay ang STANDARD SERIES nila na strats and Teles. They're well worth the price for what you get. :-D hope this helps. :-)

Thanks!

based on the very vague info i have on comparing affinities and standards..ang first obvious difference are the number of frets..squier standards come with 22's and affinities come with 21's if I'm not mistaken. :-D

for better information i suggest go to their site, I'm sure you know their site already. :-D hope this helps kahet konte.hehe :-D

hello fellow squire users...
What can you say about agathis bodied guitars? I have a strat with agathis body. I'm satisfied with the tone. In fact I find it comparable to MIM Fender strat with alder body that I tried at perfect pitch. However, it dents easily. Any similar experience or am I just not too careful with my guitar? :)

Well, sa aking experience ok ang agathis body tone wise,like how i said in my previous comment about comparing with a Fender MIJ tele. baka sa paint job lang un bro, kase yung saken (refering to my agathis tele) first night na nakuha ko siya from yupangco, habang pinupunasan ko, nalaglag yung guitar sa edge ng pedal board ko which is bakal, at alam kong for sure merong tama na malupet, at solid yung blow tapos tumayo balahibo ko sa hinayang na hindi na ok yung paint job niya na wala pang 24 oras saken yung tele, BUT fortunately enough, WALANG SCRATCH AT ALL! no exaggeration, seryoso. :-D

some models have alnicos some don't. kung affordable strat ang hanap mo, try mo ung bullet series ng squier strats, 7.5k lang. :-D

yung sa akin kase, hindi naman nalalaglag or nababangga. napapansin ko lang nagkakaroon sya ng parang "lubak" pero di naman tanggal or sira talaga yung pintura, para lang syang may "lubak" kaya tuloy di pantay ang finish. yung "lubak" parang iisipin mo na nabangga or something. mukhang malabo yata ako. ahehehe.

btw, alnico pickups ang stock pick up ng strat ko. at di ko sya balak palitan.

how can somebody know if it's alnico or not? sa mga site ang nakalagay lang "3 single coil pickups".. i also found out that bullets got basswood bodies, and affinities got alder bodies.. is this true? sensya n medyo skeptic, kasi i have a friend that had a bad experience with squiers, (plywood kasi nabili nya..), but i've read good reviews, so i would like to try it out..

i think yung mga 90's era na Squire yung plywoods nila. pero the best in craftmanship yung 80s era na squire. yung mgalatest na labas nila ay solidwood na. anyway, just check din yung body. meron sila affinity series na agathis/ alder combination but i don't think it is a big deal. kase sa akin, importante yung tunog at feel ng neck.

ser, kung hindi ako nagkakamali, nakasulat po iyon sa "specifications" on the individual page for the guitars, sa site nila mismo. and to be more precise

bullets and affinities = single-coils lang ang nakasulat

standards = alnicos

vintage modified = duncan designed

classic vibe = alnico 3's

the rest...kayo nagmaghanap.

MAG-SIPAG LANG SA SITE NILA NANDOON NAMAN LAHAT EH.. :wink:
