    I've seen a heap of good reviews on the new Bullet Tele but down here in Australia we can only get the in Black or Sunburst. I've got enough Sunburst guitars now so Black it will have to be.
    Has anyone got one and how does it look in real life. Anyone swapped pickguards to improve the looks?

    I bought the LPB one, but wanted black, which isn't offered here in USA for the $119 price, and wasn't showing up with a non-maple neck. MF now lists the black one w/ IL board, but at $179.

    There are a couple of the LPB floating around here in the UK. I'm tempted to be honest.

    For black, I suggest a tortoise guard.

    That sounds pretty good. I'll have a look on the net and see if I can see what knobs would be best on tortoiseshell.

    Can’t help other than to tell you my Bullet PJ bass in black with all black plastics looks amazing.

    The purchase of this Bullet fell through because a week after placing the order the dealer tells me they couldn't deliver for a few weeks. I couldn't wait that long so changed the order to a new Classic Vibe 50s Butterscotch Blonde instead that I had been gassing for.
    They are quite hard to find and this was available at a great price so I pulled the trigger. Now another wait for delivery begins.
