I had an Affinity a few years back that I modded and sold. It was a decent Tele. I lived in NC at the time. <br /> <br /> Oddly enough I think that very guitar is hanging in a pawn shop here in VA.

Not a tele, but I have one of the strats.<br /> <br /> I've had it since 2002; modded it numerous ways multiple times and it continues to be one my most regularly played instruments.<br /> <br /> The neck feels absolutely great (to the point I had a refret done @ 10 years that cost more than the original guitar with case)<br /> <br /> The specs have changed numerous times with the Bullet Series, but last I knew the body thickness was up to standard Fender size.<br /> Mine is of the "thinner" era, but I still love the feel of it.<br /> <br /> You'll probably want to swap out the pickups after a very short time. Let us know what you think after you get it!<br />

I like the colour scheme! I think rosewood works great with surf green. Same as my strat, but I refinished mine in lacquer. The original was black poly.

Boss!<br /> <br /> It came, set up was lousy and truss rod was loose. (It was used.) Did a set up, re-slotted the nut for some Cobalt .011s. Greased it up - fretboard, nut slots, pots. Raised the pickups. Twang-o-licious. You oughta hear it thru the used Marsh Deluxe I just snagged. Snappy as heck, neck pickup is juicy. Will gig with it soon.

COOL!<br /> <br /> Is the body much thinner than a typical Tele-twanger?

1/2 in or so. Couple pounds lighter too, but my other Tele Squier is a freekin' boat anchor.<br /> <br /> I'm giving that one to a student's kid who also plays. Rat Fink sticker and all!

Update: two gigs under my belt. Both were different kinds of music, but the thing delivered! <br /> <br /> First with Mitch Woods/Rocket 88s @ Funky Biscuit - jump blues in a 5 piece combo w/piano, sax, upright bass & drums. Ran in into an old BFDR, mostly front pickup with tone rolled off. Nice fat tones. <br /> <br /> Second gig was with Charlie Pickett @ Young Circle amphitheater in Hollywood. 3 guitars/bass/drums, knucklehead<br /> Roots rock - think Son House and The Stooges in a five car pileup. Used the 100w Mustang III on a Marshall patch with a MOSFET pedal for solos. Screamed like an ex-wife. <br /> <br /> Itâs a keeper!
