    I Buy guitars from USA.. YOu can buy in INdia.. depending on your location.. Chennai is the best place for it..

    Squire Is not the kind of Guitar you should be looking at.. for the kind of music you play, Strats are Bad..

    Boss DS1, Ronnie Anand will reply.. Just wait..

    I'm not a Strat Fan ,more of a Les Paul one.
    So what do you play?Why aren't strats good to play.
    Jimi hendrix uses one and so does Yngwie Malmsteen
    and so does
    Jeff Beck - One of the greatest Guitar players Ever. I'm surprised to hear a lot of you guys haven't heard his records. Even Slash is his biggest fan.
    Other Players include.
    Ritchie Blackmoore- Deep purple
    Stevie ray vaughan
    Mike McCready - Pearl Jam
    Steve Morse - Now deep purple - Was Voted Best guitarist for five years In a row long before Van halen.
    Randy Rhoads - Black Sabath.
    Andreas Kisser - Seputura.
    Jimmy Page - Led zeppelin - first Zeppelin album was recorded with a 1958 Fender Telecaster that was a gift from his Yardbirds band mate Jeff Beck.
    And the list goes on and on. The most versatile guitar ever.

    India is still developing.. Bangalroe has Loads of Guitar stores.. Its just the density of Musicians which is not yet determined..

    Yp ur right PG...lots of famous guitarists have used strats..many have used les pauls..ibanez is gainin rep. these days.
    From what i know strats and lespauls are gud for rock,may be hard rock(even tomi iommi uses a gibson) but for speed metal people prefer ibanez..eg.gilbert,satch,vai
    (i might be wrong)..but pg u talkin abt jeff beck and steve morse...where do u buy his records from?...they aint available anywhere in delhi (again i may be wrong)

    Yeah but thats what Yngwie Malmsteen is .
    more Like Classical speed metal actually.
    And so does Eric Johnson- another fender player.

    Correction : Steve now uses an Ernie Ball Guitar.

    Steve Morse now plays with deep purple. And you should listen to what he's done to " Smoke on the water" - Simply amazing.
    Did you know that When Ritchie blackmore left deep purple Steve Vai was their next guitarist.

    You'll just have to buy them on amazon.com or similar.

    Rs 4000 for a Squire Afiinty Strat not bad but Im sure it have some problems incase u want look for Behringer Pack 8500 with a nice 15 watt amp not bad I have lived in Delhi I know fact that Bhatia & Bharat are only two decent shops there .. Though a there is a nice Shop At CP too and few at Dariya Gung .. but Bharat is best bet in Delhi .. In Mumbai u have lot more shops also u see effects is one thing I can tell u will be far more expensive in India due to Duty, Octoria , ETC ... Well Another Guitar u can look at his Tansen .. They were there at Bharat Almost year back for sure ...

    actually strats are really not bad when it comes to playing metal. John Levasseur (cryptopsy, well used to be) and Karl Sanders (nile) play for two of the heaviest bands on the planets and they use their strats alot of the time. If he can get a decent strat, not those crappy squiers, a REAL fender strat...it just depends how he uses it i guess.

    and iron maiden too, though they use customised strats..but they do. even yngwie uses customised..

    ^point taken. Strats are versatile, but seeing them used among guitarists in death metal bands proves the famous idea-"strats are not metal", wrong.

    how much are you paying for your squier affinity?

    A friend of mine paid 10,000...was he ripped off?
