I want a cheap Telecaster!

I purchased a Squier Bullet in Daphne blue earlier this year for £150. Very happy with it - I think the Bullet sounds more Tele-like than the Squier Affinity.

I did pay a bit extra to get that colour though.

Yeah, fell in love with the looks.... but it sounds and plays great too!

Little update, now the honeymoon period is over...

Nah, who am I kidding? Still honey moon! :D I love this guitar. My Fender Stratocaster and the PRS look at it with envy, as I seem to just grab the SX Tele 9 out of... 9 times 😛

I took it to a local guy to get the frets level perfectly, and I haven't even changed the pickups. I love the bridge one, the neck one is not the best, but I don't want to change anything in it, I can't believe just what a great guitar is for £129 plus £50 for the fret levelling (it was only on the region around the 12th and 15th fret a bit, nothing major, but I do like to play guitar-hero a lot 😛)

Short video on Thomann's cheapest T-style: that simple Candy Apple Red isn't quite Purple (see above), but still has me thinking. Whatever I decide, I want a maple fingerboard on it.

If you like the candy apple red and maple combo, and prefer lacquered necks, the SX one is very nice too. :)

I have the blue one. It only cost £77 back in March.

Played great out of the box with little or no tweaking. :biggrin:

Um ... sandblasted Teles at a nice price? There's a green one too. Be still, my beating wallet:
