The Standard is made of Agathis, but it's priced higher than the Affinity which is made of Alder.

Which one is better?

P.S. I played the Standard made of Agathis, and I honestly thought it sounded really good for a Squier. I haven't tried an Affinity.

Alder is arguably the better wood but the standard probably has better hardware and pickups.
I don't know why on Earth the standard would be priced higher if it's agathis. Ridiculous. I'd have the affinity anyday.
That is, if the Vintage Modified series didn't exist. Honestly, I love them. Great for the price, IMO.
Yeah, affinity series. Alder's much better.
Affinity has Alder wood. Go for that.

I'm still trying to decide between Standard Telecaster Candy Apple Red or a Affinity Tele NM Butterscotch blonde. Should I pay that extra?
