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.

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.

I've had it since 2002; modded it numerous ways multiple times and it continues to be one my most regularly played instruments.

The neck feels absolutely great (to the point I had a refret done @ 10 years that cost more than the original guitar with case)

The specs have changed numerous times with the Bullet Series, but last I knew the body thickness was up to standard Fender size.
Mine is of the "thinner" era, but I still love the feel of it.

You'll probably want to swap out the pickups after a very short time. Let us know what you think after you get it!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Second gig was with Charlie Pickett @ Young Circle amphitheater in Hollywood. 3 guitars/bass/drums, knucklehead
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.

It’s a keeper!

I have 2 of the Bullet Strats, one trem and one hardtail. Based on bang for the buck, they have me thinking about a Bullet Tele.

My generalization is that the Bullets are extremely workable guitars, cheap enough to afford mods to whatever you might want, but playable enough as they are to adjust and use as is.

For a home hobby player like me, they are the best value out there.
