I've played a few Affinities that were tone beasts, stock, right out of the box.

You don't need to spend a chunk of change to get a really good guitar these days.

A circle, of sorts, back to the cheap guitar...one-pickup Silvertone, amp-in-the-case model...I started out with many, many summers ago.

If irritation occurs

discontinue use.

The good news about cheap guitars is if you find a really nice one new or used, and you know a little bit about fret work and doing setups, you can end up with a monster of a player for cheap change and a few hours of work.

But it's not really work.

I've never broken a sweat tweaking a guitar :o)

“Needs a new nut. That's it.”

Does it really need to be replaced, or does it just need some work?
The new affinities (sp?) use synthetic bone for their nuts, which is not bad nut material imo. Plastic otoh, is another story.

Both E strings slip off of the fingerboard with moderate bending. New nut will be necessary.
