Squier Classic Vibe Starcaster vs. Affinity Starcaster

image

It's half the guitar but still a great deal on a semi-hollow body electric.

To begin, yes the Starcaster has made a return as a Squier.

This is the "full" Starcaster in Classic Vibe flavor:

The Classic Vibe is more expensive than the Affinity. CV has chrome cover pickups, body binding, pick guard, four controls instead of just two and vintage style slotted tuners instead of sealed.

There are two things the Affinity model of the Starcaster has over the Classic Vibe.

First is the headstock treatment. Some people really don't like the black stripe. The Affinity eliminates that stripe.

Second is the fact you get a semi-hollow with dual humbuckers for such a low price.

The Affinity Starcaster is a 2019 semi-hollow electric selling new at a 2010 price. That's actually quite impressive.

Whether you go Classic Vibe or Affinity, both of these are real decent semi-hollow electrics for what they sell for.
