I have and affinity (I think ) tele $179.00 last year as a specialty projects guitar , it's a cheesy minty-mint green. because the applications it's used for don't require anything special, I love it . It's a tool in the box, isn't that what guitar are, tools to communicate with others and self? WHOOPS there I go again ignoring RULE #1 : We buy guitars to indicate financial power, social position combined to contribute to our social status. Like the old "myth about guys entering male menopause (pre-Viagra), compensating by purchasing a sporty red convertible and having a buxom bleach-bottle blonde in a revealing "Sun dress " sitting next to them as they cruise down Ocean ave. in Carmel Ca. or Magnificent Mile in Chicago Ill. I am not cynical, don't you dare call me a cynic! I'm a hypocrite, a real dyed in the wool over compensating old fashion hypocrite. And don't you dare forget it. However, having said that, I did buy a used Tokia Double cut Les Paul in that nauseating TV yellow, it's perfect and it was a great [email protected] $500.00 It does that thing so well I has not been relic-sized.
