    I found this little Bullet Tele HS for sale and I've actually wanting one for my small collection. They dont come up very often around here so with that said what would you pay? Yes it needs a few minor things repaired but thats part of the fun of it with me. Resized952018021195104433958623.jpg Resized952018021395091532959915.jpg Resized952018021395091408958989.jpg

    I'd pay up to $75. I would start at $50 though. But if you really want it, and they don't come around often, $100 wouldn't be a crazy price to pay for a guitar that is going to put a smile on your face! :)

    It's a good looking guitar for sure.

    Not to hijack this thread....but a guy near me has a Starcaster by Fender, looks similar to an Affinity Strat....minty....for about $75 US....$100 Canadian.....should I? would be upgrading pickups and electronics if so....and I'm hoping it's a full thickness body but probably 50/50 shot....and it does include the tremolo arm...

    Tony, I would easily say about $100.00 for that one wouldn't bother me in the least, and you actually really want it. So maybe a few dollars more.

    I've been tempted a couple of times by these Starcasters. I don't know enough about them to buy one yet. Around here they are closer to the $50 range. But again $75 ain't a bad price for a usable guitar.

    I ended up just getting this instead - nice light 24" scale Strat from the newer $199.99 pack with amp....for $100.78 shipped and taxes paid...to my uncle's in Michigan

    If it doesn't match the photo when I get it, she will be going back....hopefully it does!!

    I'd get that Tele if the price was under $70 I think @squierTony - if it's just the jack cup and switch tip and everything else is fine maybe 80-85

    Had one exactly like it. Cut the headstock down, decked the trem, did a fret level, dress and polish and poly coated the fingerboard. Full size body, decent tuners and electronics. Paid $60 with nice Fender bag, out the door, a couple years ago. Fit and finish was perfect. It even had some nice burl on the neck and headstock. It was mint. Mine had a really fat neck on it though. Way different from my MIM strat.

    OP is asking about a Squier Bullet Tele HS FSR I believe....I confused things by asking about a Starcaster.....

    If this guy will respond we'll be cooking. He's asking 50 bucks. It needs the switch tip and Jack cup. Cheap easy fix.
