Are they any good? This would be a starter guitar for me and was wondering if it was worth looking into?

Also what is your opinion on the standard and affinity? Which is better?

TIA

Standard is better by far. I have one from 2000 and I have it set up perfect. Plays as good as my Fender Made In Mexico. You spend a little more but it is worth it. The only thing i might change some day are the tuners and pickups.
