My local shop got in some of the new 2021 Affinities, the Tele Deluxe and the HSS Strat. Shockingly good instruments at that price. Lively, good fretwork, and decent nuts. The necks are satin but the headcap is gloss, and no mention of "Affinity Series" anywhere. The Indian Laurel looked nice. The bodies are still slightly thinner like they've always been.
I played them through a Fender Super Sonic 22. The humbuckers in the Tele Deluxe were good. Crisp and chimey and the neck wasn't mud. All three positions sounded great on the drive channel. You could just leave them in and be fine. The Strat HSS had the same humbucker. The single-coils sounded okay clean but got muddy with mild gain. Can't win 'em all. I forgot to divebomb the 2pt trem and see how out of tune it would get. Oh well, next time.
I'll have the shipping guy text me when they get in the JM and the Jag bass. No idea of ETA on those.
These seem genuinely nicer than that pre-2012 squier vm tele custom i used to have, which wasnt quite a custom nor a deluxe. Hopefully these arent as heavy either.

Not an offset but a sonic blue matching head p bass? Super pretty.
