    I've been on this forum for close to a year. Don't get mad, but I just now got a Tele. I've played a few and they're very comfortable and play very well. So, I was browsing GC's website and I found a used black Squier Tele for $90. I jumped on it and its being shipped tomorrow. I do have a picture:

    It's ok, a lot of people on the forum don't or didn't always have Teles. I'm finally trading for one this weekend and I've been on here for about a year too. I've played enough of them to know that they are my favorite guitar, but I either haven't had the money or couldn't find a good one.

    I played an Affinity recently that had a very nice neck, hopefully yours will be as good. Squier is making some surprisingly good guitars now, I found a $100 Bullet that played better than a Road Worn 50s Strat and a 57 RI!

    nice place to start, my son's affinity plays really well. Great for modding too, 4 way switch and 250k pots and you'll really notice a difference in overall tone, enjoy!
