    Just ordered the surf green bullet Tele from MF for $129. Of course is on back order until mid April but I can wait. The reason I was interested is because I was at Guitar center looking into the Mustang but didn't like it that much. Then tried Affinity Tele and bullet Tele and actually liked the bullet better!
    Glad I waited and didn't pay the $179 I was gonna pay!

    Very cool! We should be getting our new bullets about the same time! We'll have to compare notes!

    Glad you went for it! $129.00 is a great price for this guitar!

    Cheers!

    Got mine yesterday from MF.
    $129 free shipping.
    The first one came in last week, and UPS destroyed it.
    This one came thru Ebay MF.

    I'm really digging these red sparkles!

    I haven't even received my first bullet (surf green), and am getting major gas for this red one!

    Yeah man, pretty excited as I'm sure you are. Kinda wanna see how the neck compares to my early 80's Fender USA H1 bullet,which I like a lot.
    Let me know how yours plays and sounds!

    Sure thing, I'll let you know my thoughts! Looking forward to your assessment as well!

    As far as the neck goes, it will be interesting to see how it compares to is my CV50, and I really like this neck.


    The only initial mod I'll be doing is replacing the pickguard with a Fender Mint Green 3 ply. Saw another member who switched it out with this one, and I really thought it looked cool! Other than that, I won't know until after I've had a chance to play it for a little bit.

    Thanks Sven!!
    I was looking for a used one
    and saw this sale.
    Plays great.
    Needs a little hotter pickups.

    I have an 'Affinity Squier' that has really good pickups.
    They are going into this one.
    The Affinity will be a made into a deluxe style.
