  1. Fender Adds New Colors To Squier Affinity Series

    Fender Adds New Colors To Squier Affinity Series
    The Fender Squier Affinity series represents great design and amazing value combined in an incredible set of instruments. As we touched on in our previous article, Are Fender Squier Guitars Any Good, we broke down the criticisms usually thrown at Fender’s economy line of guitars. And while we felt that they obviously won’t stand toe to toe with their American Standard line, they offer the best bang for your buck when money is a concern, especially at the sub $300 level. With the Affinity line, in particular, we felt that they were a big step up from previous Squier models, even rivaling some of the company’s Mexican-made line in terms of quality and playability. With that in mind, we are excited that Fender decided to throw a new coat of paint on their Affinity series instruments. Below, we take a look at what this new color refresh has to offer.     Continue reading →

    Great Delay Effects Pedals Under $200
    Delay has been a staple of the guitar effects world for decades, dating back to the early antique tape echo machines and spring reverb units to today's multitude of pedals.
