I have over 150 guitars in my collection, and have returned a couple of mid level Fenders that just did not do it for me.

FIRST THINGS FIRST. Leave the guitar alone! If you want to replace the tuners, get the same trapezoid tuner, or go to: http://amateurluthiery.wordpress.com/2011/09/05/replacing-the-tuners-on-a-squier%C2%AE-by-fender%C2%AE-bullet-strat%C2%AE/ and make up your mind.
What is important on a nut, is NOT what it is made from, but the string to string dimensions, the height (rise and fall), and the proper groove cuts. Bone IS NOT THE BIG ANSWER TO ALL YOUR GUITARS ILLS, and may just add to them, as bone is NOT consistent, and is hard and soft throughout (plastic is consistent). The pickups DO NOT NEED REPLACING, and deliver great punch, sustain, and string response.

I bought this low end (I thought) fender just to see what all the hubbub was about.
The rationale: If I didn't like it, I could always change out the neck and put a new loaded pickguard on it.
For an entry level priced guitar, this thing just rocks! I just picked up two more on sale from Musicians Friend, so now have 4, plus misc. necks and bodies.
The most important thing to me, is that it is made in Indonesia; why you ask, because Indonesia has been producing the best offshore guitars for the last 6 or 7 years, and in my humble opinion blows Korea out of the water on low end guitars.

First off, the tuners don't blow as bad as you are led to believe; this may change after a while, but as new tuners, they are just fine.
The neck is straight and unfinished which makes it fast. The medium frets are right on the edge of giving you some finger rash, so a little light sanding may be in order.
The strings are cheap (Duh!)
After installing the (included) extra tremolo spring (I always use 4, this way I don't have to block it), I gave the truss rod a half turn down, lowered the saddles, and corrected the pup angles (closer to high e, further from low E), and voila, other than the stock strings, and frets needing a little dressing, the guitar played just as well, or better than at least half of my mid price range guitars.
The black hardware is great; I get so tired of looking at chrome.....................
Pickups sound like they are mid range (6-8K), and come across with good punch and sustain.
The shining star on this rig, is the VERY lightweight basswood body. While it may be more dent prone, I don't usually go around banging my guitars into hard objects, and if I did, at the low price, who cares!!!

Bullet HH Stratocaster

For a affordable guitar it is good. Playability was good. Pickups workable and usable. Smooth feeling neck and fingerboard. Action was good.

    Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

    Adjusting the hex pegs down a bit, the action becomes super nice without any buzz.

    Feels nearly indistinguishable from more costly models, Pristine, really. And always stays in tune...

    Paid 5 extra for shipping, and was probably worth it. Arrived somehow within 2 days, and box was not brutalized like usual.

    Thank you again Squier & Musician's friend (customer4ev) ~!

      This is the 7th Squire I ordered.
      I disassemble all Squires purchased. Well built. Good paint Maybe better than MIM in assembly quality in some part. All parts positioned/ lined up OK. Unlike other Squires fret ends of this one were well rounded and no need to file. All thread holes are straight and not stripped. One hole at bottom of jack plate was too close to cavity edge. This is typical for all Fender design. Wiring is solid and parts are good. The only think I do not like was tone. It was a little muddy to me (but not bad for begginers and price). I am not sure if this come from pickup or from pots. At any rate I buy Squire for mods so I will replace them all.

        Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

        Tuners are only so-so, I replaced mine with Grover Rotomatics, frets needed to be polished. That is IT! This little thing plays as nicely as my 1971 tilt-neck Strat. but it's half the weight! It's a joy to play, humbuckers sound great! Neck is great! Balance is great! Workmanship is flawless! Even the strings it came with sound great! Quality control is really impressive, just a super-duper good deal on an awesome guitar, and I never use the word 'Awesome', ever! Bought mine with a gig-bag, got the guitar, played it for a few days, picked up the phone and ordered the hard case for it, it's THAT good! I'm keeping this one forever.

        Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

        Being a bassist i have a couple fender jazz basses that are my main players. That being said, when i first picked this little bullet strat up it felt like a toy... which i guess it really might be. but a simple upgrade to the strings of your choice might just change your mind. This almost mini strat body is so light it feels odd at 1st. but once you do, you realize the neck is actually pretty straight, fast, and after replacing the factory strings, realize that the pups were worth the price of admission . fun to play and looks great hanging on your wall..but i think you will find yourself playing it a bit more than you imagined as it has a certain little "fun" factor with the tremolo etc. This review is taking into consideration price, of course, build quality, playability, cosmetic/appeal, and quality of sound for the price, best bang for your buck. remember, at under a bill, come on ! what you get is a little bit of fender fun.

          Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

          I bought this guitar after reading reviews and just wanted another guitar to mess around with. I was very surprised! I bought this as a blemished model and I received a guitar that I really had to look to find a scratch on it. I have many guitars ranging in all different price spectrums. This guitar is the lowest priced guitar I have ever owned. The tuners are a little stiff but it holds tune no matter how hard I play it.
          It really has become one of my favorites!! I just love the sounds I get out of it and it really is fun!
          I am so impressed that I am planning on buying another one......You can never have too many guitars.
          Do yourself a favor and get one!

            I have owned Mex, Korean Chinese and Japanese Strats and this little guitar, with proper set up plays and intonates as well as any guitar I've ever palyed. I haven't had it long enough to say it's good for recording but it is a great guitar in every aspect. I have played since 1963 and have a ton of experiences behind me to judge this beautiful instrument.

              This guitar is great for the price. right out of the box and tuning, it was fun to play. the tremolo made it easy to play early 60s classics wthout the use of a wah-wah pedal. good action. The strings will be replaced in a couple of weeks to realy make the sound even better

              Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

              I bought this as an inexpensive way to try scalloping a guitar neck. Got it on a Friday morning, dropped and adjusted the action, played it for an hour and was truly impressed. Better action and tone than an old eighties mim I spent too much money modding.
              I took it to the kareoke bar I frequent that night and played it with a couple blues standards and the KJ thought it sounded better than the other instruments I'd brought in before, (They all cost 10 times more) Shared it with a couple guitar friends who were surprised as well.
              That night, after closing the bar, I tore it apart and prepped the neck. Noon the next day, woke up, got a pot of coffee in me, and 8 hours later got to play my first scalloped neck guitar.
              Whoo Hoo! I recommend it to anyone with the patience and skills to try it.
              I was so jazzed I ordered another one that night( this one in metalic orange, first one was black) and when it arrived it was perfect out of the box. I'm leaving that neck alone.
              Bottom line. The hardware is cheap,but effective, it works. Time will tell how it holds up. Tuners are stiff but they hold it in tune nicely. Another reviewer commented about the quality of instruments coming out of Indonesia and I wholeheartedly agree. The unfinished neck feels great. Fast and smooth. I only wish they had something like this, for a C-note, forty years ago when I began to play. The first guitar I got made my fingers bleed.
              For this kind of money you can't go wrong.

                  We bought this guitar for our 13 year old grand son. When it came the guitar looked awsome flawless finish which I did not expect from an inexpensive guitar. When I tuned it the sound blew me away sounds as good as any fender I have played.
