So 119.99. Gotta say for the money, this thing is beautiful in a silly way. Wasn’t expecting much, and the knobs feel somewhat wonky, but $119.99 !!!!! I went from a Classic Vibe to a Sea Foam green Gibson LP Classic that I got for $1200 and quickly sold, because, I just don’t play well enough to justify having pricy guitars. They all end up sounding the same in these novice hands. Truth be told, this bullet has me smiling ear to ear, and I don’t have to feel guilty playing it. Only thing is, most of you modders can’t really just drop in an ashtray bridge without some surgery. Anyway here are some pics.

    Yeah I’m digging the sparkle! I might want to change the neck eventually to an all maple. It’sa little odd in that it has a skunk stripe with a Indian laurel fretboard. I I thought skunk stripes were only in one piece necks so they can insert the truss rod? I wonder if it’s solid under the fretboard?

    Yeah I’m loving this color. However I did see one in GC and when they get dinged up, it ain’t pretty. The clear coat peels off and is basically holding together a pretty thick coat of that glitter concoction under there. It basically crumbles where the clear coat comes off

    I’m not surprised that you love it. In a mildly related story, I have a lot of new and vintage guitars. I picked up a blue sparkle HH Strat lightly used a couple years ago. A nice set up and this guitar is played at least weekly. It’s really hard to pass on a Bullet lately. They’re better than ever.

    Congratulations

    She's a real looker... dont worry if you think you don't play good enough, just play and enjoy it. The more you play the better you'll get.

    I've found that recording myself and then going back later and watching it helps me to see how I've progressed. You got this so rock that Tele....

    Happy New Guitar Day. I like it. The finish reminds me of those carnival ride cars that go round and round with the flashing lights and kids honking the beep beep horns. :D

    I was thinking the same thing!! It’s exactly like those rides. Also, like the old diner booths and chairs. Kinda like these

    The finish also reminds me of the handgrips on the Schwinn Sting-Ray that I had when I was a kid.
