Burgundy Mist makes an appearance on a very affordable Telecaster


I like the look of this one. A lot. And the price is certainly right.

I'd argue this is one of the best applications of the Burgundy Mist finish I've ever seen.

Usually I only see this color on Strats. This time it's on a Telecaster by Squier. And it's under 300 bucks.

The great part about this guitar, other than the color, is that it's a Deluxe model, meaning it has the contour curve in the back like a Strat does. What that means is that it's a very comfortable player. Looks like a plank from the front, but the back...

image where things get really comfortable whether playing sitting or standing. Very nice.

In addition, being it's an Affinity model, the tuners are better than on the Bullet series. Generally speaking, the Affinity series from Squier is good stuff. It's not the bargain basement Bullet, nor is it the upper priced Classic Vibe. It's right in the middle. You get something good without having to pay a bunch for it.

Great to see the Burgundy Mist finish again, and this is the best yet.
