    thanks

    They start out with the Bullet for around $149, then there's several different varieties of the Affinity for around $199, Standards for $249, Classic Vibe for $399, Vintage Modified for $399, and the VM thinline and CV Custom for around $449. Just past that, you're into Fender territory with the Modern Player models for around $499. There's also a few artist models in the Squier range for around $400.

    Classic Vibes are known for their great sound and quality. The Affinity models are a good value, but may leave you wanting for something a little better.

    In principle almost any telecaster neck will fit, except for a Fender Modern Player neck (because it has 22 frets without overhang and therefore is longer than a normal neck).

    In principle almost any stratocaster neck will fit, because a telecaster neck pocket is square and allows for a more rounded heel (like from a strat neck) to be used. It normally doesn't fit the other way around.

    You could also get a VM Deluxe which has a strat neck ;-). All Squier VMs and CVs models are very very good.

    The Bullet FSR Models in Surf Green and BSB currently have a string through bridge and are really solid guitars. They're a $150 steal right now, IMO.

    Not really, but you could MAKE it fit if you have the skills. Also, scale length may differ.

    The Tele has a rounded heel, the Strat is straight.

    At this side of the pond it is the other way around, and therefore it should work.

    I've read that some of the Squier Teles have a thinner neck than your usual modern C neck and some have thinner bodies. Can anyone comment on what models are a little different in dimensions?

    The idea of the thinner neck is about universal. But they are not thinner at the heel (as far as I know). A Fender neck should fit a Squier body with the exception of the modern player neck. (Which is 22 frets without overhang and that would result in a wrong distance between the nut and the saddles.

    The affinity has a thinner body, but I suppose the neck pocket is the same depth as I regularly see affinities here with new necks.
