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.

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:

A while back I picked up a very nice Harley Benton Tele with a Paisley finish which played quite nicely. A trip across Hertfordshire to @gary mac's where he installed a Bigsby-a-like trem, dressed the frets and installed a new set of strings and it now plays lovely, thanks very much.

Geeetarist friends don't believe it's a budget model.

Think Harley Bentons advertising for their Tele could have been a little less like self-pleasure:

Twang King

Go on, say it aloud, you`ll get there.

Well well well...

The Squier Bullet Telecaster was sold out, and they told me they'd have another shipment in September. In September they had the Stratocaster but not Tele. It's ok. I don't need ANOTHER Tele, loving my red SX.

However.... this? Classic Vibe range? Nice tinted and lacquered neck? 

I just ordered one. Thanks for the heads up!

It was an absolute steal at £65 ( Just spent more than this on a scratchplate for a partscaster I'm building !). Finished perfectly , pickups sound great , setup decent enough. Half the price of a mini squier.

I think I'll pick up the full size thinline next for £118 - there are loads to choose from......

DV247? I remember when they were Digital Village, then kind-of forgot about them after I moved to Dublin. I'm out of the cheap Tele market for the foreseeable, though, since I went in a different direction, as per the "Headless Guitars" thread.

I was thinking they're not going to shift many of those in Yorkshire.

Well, I check an email I had from Andertons last week and find out that the estimated delivery is... summer 2021!!! 😲

Then I see that this is for a second batch, as the first one was sold out already, phew, mine is still expected in early December 😎

      Squier Vintage Modified P-Bass with luthier made 5 string neck in Wenge and Maple with Ebony fretboard.   The bridge was moved back to make the scale length to 35 inch scale.   Pickups upgraded to Delano PMVC 6 FE/M2 and pots changed (original pots included).   Hipshot Kickass bridge and Hipshot tuners.   Set of D'Addario Flatwounds installed a few weeks ago (ECB81-5SL)   Set of Roundwounds included (about 6 months of use).   Body refinished in Sherwood Green and in excellent condition with only a slight 2cm blemish (see pic).   Due to different pickups the pickguard doesn't cover the recesses fully, will need a custom pickguard if you want to fix it (didn't really bother me).   All work done by previous owner, had the bass since May and it plays great, no issues, selling as I prefer a 4 string and want something lighter / thinner.   Quite unique bass for those who want that Precision sound and an extra 5th string.   Test and pickup encouraged, will ship to UK for another £25 - I will include a budget gig bag with it. International shipping possible, please enquire.   Any questions or pic requests welcome.

      This was going to be my project relic bass ( don’t judge me, I need something to do now not rehearsing) 
      that was until I bought a Bruce Thomas bass so I only need one P 
      classic vibes are really well made this one has Elite Detroit flats on - the neck is a J style very playable
      it’s the lightest p bass ever I’d say sub 8lbs 
      I still got the box so can ship for £20 to uk only or will drive an hour from Clitheroe to meet outdoors

      Hi guys! This is the first bass cover that I propose to you with the new Harley Benton MB-4 in satin black color. A first test for this cheap copy of the legendary Stingray struggling with a Rage Against the Machine classic. Enjoy and don't forget to subscribe to the channel to keep you updated on my next videos!

      Body : Alder
      Neck : 1 piece Maple neck (JB Style)
      Fingerboard : Rosewood
      Pickups : Fender Pure Vintage'63 (PB), Hot Rod J-5D (Jazz)
      Controls : Volume, Volume, Tone
      Bridge : Vintage
      Color : Vintage White
      Weight : 4 kg

      Rare JV, from the Contemporary series from Squier. Great built like always with the JV era ! Great bass, with low action, punchy and warm sound. Frets are in good condition, neck is straight. PB pickup have been upgraded with a Fender Pure Vintage'63 (same pickup on the American Original 63 PB) which gives better medium range. Strings are brand new.
