Well, the neck is a Tele.
Hello all from North Carolina. Moved to Raleigh in December of 2019 from Georgia. Have been playing since the early 80's, mostly acoustic with my churches contemporary group.
Picked up this Fender Bullet with the original hardcase and a Dean Markley K-50 ss-amp for a few hundred bucks in the mid-90's from my manager where I worked at the time. Didn't know anything about it or really what to look for when buying a guitar and still don't. Just knew that after playing it for all of 3 minutes through that amp I'd fork over the cash and bring it home.
Have been reading the forum for Fender Bullet Owners Club for a few months now and decided to join in on the fun, finally today.
Cheers!

I'm pretty sure it was 5 Benjamins. Alot of money for me at the time. Come to think of it, still is. Appreciate the welcome
So you paid on the top end for the guitar and a little bit for the amp? Still if it's a keeper and a player then it was a great deal.

Welcome!! and that is a great lookin Bullet H-2. That price seems pretty good to me. Especially if it is in good condition. Reverb shows the current range for the H-2 as starting around $500 and up to a little more than $1000. There are two on there now for $1000 and $1400.

Hope you will pop in to the Bullet (80s) owners club thread and share the photos.
