    Yeah I really liked the Affinity Tele but could not afford that one I had a choice between the Bullet which was really out of my price range and the one I got. I went and played the others like I could afford them to have a comparison. Yeah i would be afraid to loose some of the sound if I upgraded mine, happy with the sound. Trebly twang on the bridge, humbucking canceling in the middle(I guess one is reverse wound), and that wonderful lipstick pickup sound in the neck takes me back to my Danelectro days. I think it is just as versitile as my Strat and may become my #1 given time. lol, funny thing is I joined TDPRI years ago way before I joined this board and others. I've had a Les Paul for 25 years and am not even a member of the Les Paul boards, so I guess I am just an odd duck.

    I don't want to risk the sound I've got now either, it's makes a good sound, and I'm not going to be greedy and risk losing my good sound for possibly a better sound, or a worse sound. I really enjoy the simplicity of the Tele's three-way switch; neck, both, and bridge, it doesn't get easier than that. That is funny, I too joined TDPRI before I got my Tele, and realized it was a very Fender aimed forum, so I kept looking and when I found squier-talk, I knew it was home. I think most of us are odd ducks. :p

    they are easy to play,,,,,great necks in almost any shape you need to feel comfortable, lots of pickup choices! the standard set up gives almost limitless sound possibilities, and it can go from country type twang to smooth bluesy/jazz sounds with ease. it is a very versatile guitar which looks great!

    love the Tele!!!!!

    The shape of the Telecaster is simply timeless. IMO there is no other guitar that came into years and didn't get old at all like the Tele. If you imagine it's 60 years now! Unbeleavable! Revolutionary! Just the "big bang"!
