Squier Bullet and Affinity Teles*Strat have thinner body?
Yes. Whether MII or MIC, both models are typically thinner than an MIA or MIM Tele. The thickness varies by year and the actual manufacturer, typically 1.625 to 1.700. Sometimes thicker, sometimes thinner.
It usually makes the bodies a bit lighter than equivalent MIAs and MIMs. Issues to watch out for:
- If you use a different bridge block, you need a shorter "import" block so it won't hang out the back of the guitar.
- The control cavity is usually deep and wide enough for a US-made switch and full-sized pots, but not always.
Thats nice info, thanks mate
The exception would be older MIJ Squier Bullet One models, which are often full thickness. My Contemporary HST model is 1.75", and laminated construction, so almost 10# weight. Bullet Ones have the headstock decal shown below.
Yes, thinner bodies. I like them, though, for that reason.
Noticed on both affinities and bullets when tried Classic vibe strat it felt weirdly fat lol
