Oh hey all!! Proud owner of five Squier guitars, and one Squier bass. They play great, and I like them all- I need a standard Telecaster, though, as my Squier Tele is the VM 70s thinline semi-hollow with the (fake, but NICE!) WRHB pups. As budget constraints dictate, I am looking at either a Bullet or Affinity. Question is - Which one?? The Bullet is string through, but has a thinner body- Would that make a neck swap dicey in future? Does the string through body give more vintage/traditional Tele sound?? The Affinity seems a full thickness body, but has that plastic jack plate that just seems a built in weak point. Pickups are better on Affinity I believe, but I wouldn’t be averse to some budget Korean AlNiCos in the future (For either guitar) if I find them lacking (Artec and Wilkinson come to mind- good value there...) Both have some classic as well as fun color choices (I would prob get Lake Placid Blue Bullet or Race Green Affinity Lol ) but I would prefer a maple fretboard (I just think Teles look best with that maple board, but I could live with Indian Laurel I guess..)- that’s where a neck swap may an option be in the future... I may just end up “Esquiring” the thing a’la Syd Barrett, and get the Silver Affinity and add those mirror discs!! Regardless, I will not be able to get to a music store anytime soon to do a side-by-side comparison. Anyways- closest GC to me is about 5 hours in either direction! (ABQ or PHX ) Any thoughts or input from this forum from folks that have EITHER a bullet or Affinity would be most appreciated- I just need a Little push To get me going in any direction!! OBTW- thought about those Monoprice “Indio” retro models for $99, but I hear they are around 10-11lbs. are the Bullet and affinity lighter than that? I would hope so! Thanks!!
