    I got this at a local pawn shop yesterday for $59 including a nice padded gig bag. It's a little beat up but I figured I that just gives it character. Anyone know what this blue color is called?

    Thanks! Someone on another forum told me the color was Baltic Blue. I think the strat behind the tele in the photo below is Lake Placid Blue.

    Congrats, looks like a good score for the price. I started playing in '99, that picture is like a blast from the past. Looks like a through-body bridge, the new ones are top-load only, I wish they made them with both options available

    Thank! Actually mine is top-loader too. I think all the Affinity Tele's are.

    Sharp and looks like it's built like a tank. Yep, it's a Tele.

    Why do I never find deals like that?
