Whether you're looking for a beginner guitar, a back-up model or a platform for modelling, the Fender Squier Affinity series offers some great options – and the new 2021 refresh additions have really raised the bar with Tele, Strat, Jaguar and bass guitar options aplenty. New electric guitar model additions for this year are Strat HH, Jazzmaster and Tele Deluxe models.

We'd already spotted the new Jazzmaster models in lovely finishes last week, but it seems them were the tip of a very cool iceberg. 

Keeping with the cold theme, the addition of Charcoal Frost Metallic as a finish option on several models has especially caught our eye – not only does it look great but it's been very rarely seen outside of Fender Custom Shop models until now. 

Let's take a look at all 10 models with finish options…
