WHat is the differance in terms of specs/materials between these two runs? Makes no sense to make two different model lines if they are both in the same low-end bracket. Can someone enlighten me?

theres no such thing as a plain ole squier
affinity is the series(like bullet series etc)
squier affinitys are made by squier
and yes it does make sense to make to different model lines in the same "low end" bracket
how about fender only makes one guitar per price range

In America, the Squier Affinities have solid alder bodies. Outside of America, they have agathis bodies.

Squier Standards always have agathis bodies.

The other differences are:
- The Squier Affinity has 21 frets, the Squier Standard has 22 frets.
- The Affinity has ceramic bar single coil pickups while the Squier Standard has Alnico V pole piece magnet pickups.
- The Squier Standard has fancier pickguards.
- The nut width of the Standard is slightly wider (42mm) than the Affinity (40.9mm)

Basically the Standard is better than the Affinity in every single way, except in America the Affinity has a better alder body while the Standard suffers the usual agathis body.

They do have the Squier standard series. The affinity is the lowest quality that fender puts out. It goes(IMHO) Bullet, Affinity, Standard, CV, VM, and standard fender. You might want to look into used Fenders, or VM or CV Squier guitars, because the folks at Squier are stepping up their game and is well worth the price.

The Classic Vibe series teles blow the Vm's (and all other squiers + most MIM teles) away, don't know about the strats though.

Argh no, don't touch the VM's! I have a VM Strat and it's awful. I'd never recommend one to anyone.

As far as one type being above another, the Classic Vibe series are definitely far better than the Vintage Modified series, at least from what I've played.
