Been playing for some time now and for the price I was pretty impressed.
Like the feel and balance but one problem I have a USA made Carvin from the 70's with HH pickups. And a Fender Jassmaster HH both have unique sound but are HH. Of the 3 the best quality was the Jassmaster made in Mexico (the craftsmanship superb). Its out put seems to be lower gain yet full of rich sounds. The Carvin is a 24 fret solid neck Classic. I modified it years ago and installed a tremolo.
Back to the Bullet for the price I was not afraid to make changes to it do to the price beyond reasonable if you catch it on sale. If you look around you can find preloaded pick ups for this model in just about any configuration. (web) The place of origin was Korea a beautiful brown pick guard preloaded with HSS, removed the original HH by removing the small screws holding the pick guard and the whole assembly lifted right out. To my amazement the guitar was already set up for any configuration. Did not have to cut wood to make it fit just unsoldered the HH and dropped in the HSS. Now I have a custom Bullet with a very amazing one of kind sound with tones and harmonics that rival the high end models. I had to make a few adjustments to get the best gain without buzz but there are plenty of how to videos about guitar setups and maintenance. If you have a little know now this is a quick and easily mod to accomplish and a great entry level instrument. Play On.....

For the price I couldn't resist. This guitar takes a lot of work to get the best sound out of it but well worth the effort for the price.

When I first received this guitar I tried to put 0.11's on it that was a no go because the nut is just not meant for it. I then went to extra lights I got the action down pretty low but the Low E keeps getting caught up in the nut and I have to stretch the string every time I tune it. Going to put a new nut on it soon.

The machine heads are the worst I've ever used there just horrible I would recommend replacing them immediately.

For a beginner this guitar is great if you want more of a professional use out of it expect hours of work. It took me about 5hrs to get it setup on 09's @440. I recently joined a band and there album was recorded at @415 so I had to resetup the entire guitar and the action is very high it's not that big of deal cause I'm the rhythm but if I was Lead I'd be screwed.

Overall like I said before for the money it's a great guitar and I highly recommend it to beginners and pros. It is also a great experiment guitar if you've never done a setup or replaced parts such as your nut, machine heads, bridge this is the guitar to learn on.

Dont listen to those who say this is built cheap

By eric ross

from USA

Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

TRY IT YOULL LIKE IT
1st of all you gotta give squire credit for the price .
than lets talk body ,nice finish nice looks ,yes the body is light , hello it's called the bullet
and it is fast and smooth no buzzes great action ,and it's a strat design
this thing plays better than most ,I dont care what you own !
there are students who are not 200 pounds who can deffenetly benifit from the lightweight
and if your a old rocker you may find you like saving your shoulder
I love the sound of theese humbuckers ,I dont care where there made ,I'm getting great tone
out of them clean and dirty! runnin it through a CUSTOM QUAD 100 watt yeaa baby it's worth getting excited over a strat different in it's own right with the beautiful warm tones im getting.
im so impressed with it that I didnt hesatate to order a squire deluxe hotrail to add to my squire
collection right after buying this ! you can mod theese things out with anything that fits strats
whats not to love ,people got it in there head that these are cheap , dont listen try it yourself and listen for yourself! ,I would love to see Dave Murry hook one up to his amps and raise the roof of some stadium becouse I beleave this guitar could do it ! WITHOUT THE DIMARZIOS.
just the way it comes! we know this smooth neck can handle Maidens style
YES IM A FAN YES I RECCOMEND IT YES IM GOING TO PLAY MINE RIGHT NOW !
GREAT VALUE WHAT MORE CAN I SAY
VERY COOL NOTHING MORE TO ADD

Really Great Inexpensive Guitar

Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

I am extremely pleased with this instrument in every aspect and, I am very particular about my gear. If it doesn't give me what I want it's GONE! I am quite sure that I will have this guitar for a long while, I absolutely love the 2 tone sunburst finish with black white laminate pickguard. I have been musician for over 40 yrs. and I can definately tell you that it's not the guitar that makes the musician it's the musician that knows how to play and makes the guitar do what he or she wants. I would definately purchase another Squier instrument and, I would definately reccommend this guitar to anyone looking to purchase a guitar.
The double humbuckers is what got my attention, On a Strat? Got to check this one out. At one time I had a Bullet Special with one humbucker and, It kicked butt but, it really didn't fit my style of music so when I saw this one with one more humbucker and, more tone options plus a trem it was what I missed in the Special and, I was definately right. The guitar I have is just exactly like this one but in a 2 tone sunburst it was described as an FSR which means factory special run. This instrument still retains the Strat sound but just a little thicker and darker with the humbuckers but, using the bridge humbucker it will definately wail! I have an American Strat with the single coils and, I was looking for something a little different and I have certainly found it.
I rated this guitar under 10 just mainly because obviously for the $ it's just not quite as fancy as the high dollar strats but, I can assure you it is not a super cheapie piece of junk like you'll find at Walmart or stores like this. I was very impressed with looks,fit, and, sound of this instrument. I own several high quality guitars that I paid at least 5 to 7 times the amount that I paid for this one and, it will hang right in there with any of them. I had to do very little setup on this guitar, the neck was straight, I lowered the action to suit my playing style, checked the intonation, it was spot on good, tuned the strings to pitch and stretched them 3 times and retuned them. Into my amp and gave it a good 1hr. workout. I bent and stretched notes all over the neck and, it held tune perefectly! Several years ago I wouldn't have considered purchasing a Squier but, about a year ago I came across a Squier Tele Vintage modified SSH and, I was blown away with quality and, sound of that instrument. I am a changed man.
For the money this guitar is Fantastic!

Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

Overall, I'm having fun with it. It plays just fine for my needs and ability. I can hardly come up with time to play with a job, wife an kids so this guitar was the right price for the occasional play.
Quality is fine. Don't expect a hand crafted master piece. For the price it's definitely good for beginners or a cheap knock around.
Can't beat the price.

Warning: This Bullet Is Lethal

By ShredFred

from Rock Hole, North Carolina

See all my reviews

Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

Bought my first Squire in 1986 and it was love from the first pluck and I soon found them easier to replace if broken by careless handlers. Set up correctly, they will play as well as any higher-priced guitar, and they are the lightest, most comfortable guitar I have ever used on stage. I bought this 'Bullet' a few months ago with intentions to change the pick-up in order to copy Kirk Hammet in our Metallica covers. Didn't have to change anything. Set it up, cranked it up, and carried it on stage that night. Out-Of-Box this dark witch will screech or squeel.

Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

Lately low on the dough to buy a new guitar, but needing one for practicing, writing and recording, I took a chance on the Squier Bullet (Strat-style) guitar. Since I had previously owned a Squier Strat, I had an idea of what to expect of the neck and body, but the dual humbuckers of this Bullet seemed like a good choice for the kind of playing I do - for which single-coils are kind of wimpy.

I'm not sure of the erogonimic differences between the Strat and the Bullet, but whatever they may be, I prefer the fit and action of the Bullet. The neck is somehow more welcoming and "faster." The guitar overall is well-balanced between the neck and the body. The humbuckers are good - of course not the best, but for this price, they sound great - with more of a "Fender" sound than a "Gibson" vibe. Since I don't use whammy bar much in playing, I can't reasonably comment on it, but the whammy bridge seems to stay in tune well in repose. Finally, the all-black of the body and hardware of the variation I ordered looks frickin' cool.

Two complaints, though not to deter the buyer:
1) The tuners are merely okay, though a player with less experience probably won't be able to tell. The ones on my guitar seem to stay in tune fairly well, after a slight struggle to get them there.
2) Typical of this line of guitars, the ends of the frets, especially those on the "fingers" side of the neck, need filing-down amd rounding-off in order to mitigate friction against fingers while playing. This takes no more than a half hour of one's time with an inexpensive thin triangular file.

The Bullet's neck has even playability, which is really noticeable while fingerpicking. My Bullet arrived with the intonation set well, and I only had to give a quarter-turn of the truss-rod adjustment to get the neck flat (and the action thereby even lower). That might reflect more on the vendor (Musician's Friend), but no matter what degree of set-up might be required upon receipt, the Squier Bullet should be a great guitar for a beginner or intermediate player, and also one at which a pro won't scoff and even might take along to gigs. Replace the tuners and humbuckers with higher-end ones, and you've got a real screamer on/in your hands.

This review might be so enthusiastic because I'd not expected such a good guitar for the money - and I give it fewer than five stars (four) because of the filing I had to do to the frets.

Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

Best guitar I've purchased for the price, needed minor set up adjustments (I play .010's). Not equal to my Godin LGX (10 times the cost!) Not sure what this is made of (feels like composite plastic stuff) but who cares! Has unique sound that I was looking for. Do not like tremolo on any guitar, so after tightening the springs as far as they would go, she stays in tune. Hate volume/tone knobs not needed, glued them to full on (otherwise kept lowering during playing). Both pick-ups sound good, not a strat single coil feedback monster.

Great little light guitar after a proper setup.

By John Lutz

from WI

Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

So, if you give it a proper setup, it is a nice guitar. If you know nothing and expect an American Fat strat out of the box.....not the case here
At first, I couldn't make a chord ring out in tune anywhere on the neck. Had muted notes rattles and buzzes and strange semitones. After I set the truss rod, the action and the intonation, still out of intonaion with saddle maxed back, so I then noticed the nut was cut at the wrong angle towards the headstock. After gently filing the slots on the D and B strings, I was able to move the saddles back forward to properly intonate and adjust saddles to the fretboard radius. Then I adjusted the humbuckers evenly up to spec. Then it played like a dream after that. I even ordered some locking tuners to replace the cheapos on it and eliminate them sticky string trees. Great light little rocker it is now

Good for an absolute beginner

By Ahmed Raza

from Brooklyn, NY

Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

Overall a great purchase. However, if you really want to make this thing scream, upgrades are necessary and a bit setup required.
It's got a whammy bar. That's the best part about this thing.
The low e tuning knob is a bit cranky, and it feels like it's going to crack off anytime soon.
Made pretty well, although it feels a bit cheap. I'm an absolute beginner and even I knew that this thing was light as hell. But they didn't call this the Bullet for nothing.
You can't go wrong at a hundred and twenty bucks. Awesome little thing, but you do get what you pay for.

Not bad for a beginner

By Caleb Ramirez

from CG Arizona

Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

This guitar isn't bad, but I would only recommend it to beginners and someone who needs a cheap, expendable instrument. I bought this guitar about two years ago from a guitar center mostly because it looked sweet with the black finish. I tried it out in the store on a Line 6 Spider III amp and it sounded pretty good. I get a kind of sharp, shallow tone with it and I mostly just needed it for experimentation. NEVER gig with this guitar, if anyone sees you, it will be hard for them to take you seriously unless you ABSOLUTELY know what you're doing. I tried playing a gig in a house party and afterwards I had like six people come up to me and ask why I use that piece of crap when I have an epiphone SG special at home. The body is extremely light and so is the neck, it feels like it will shatter into a million little peices if I drop it from three feet up on to something solid, but its actually not too bad because you can get a decent sound from it if you tune it a step or step and a half down from standard E tuning. The fingerboard is crazy flat and is a bit difficult to play on if you are used to more expensive, better quality instruments. Overall I think I would only buy it as a gift to a twelve year old or as something to play and smash but still not feel too bad about it. If you want a cheap guitar that isn't absolute complete crap, go out and get this one.

Best Squier out there!!

By tjh

Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

This is a must-have guitar. It won't kill your budget, but it will kill your audience (in a good way). Plays great, looks great, feels great, and is overall just great!! This guitar is versatile enough to handle any style. Buy it!!!!
This guitar has a very comfortable neck that fits my hand like a glove. It's nice and light, and can pump out some serious tones. The humbucking pickups and the all-black finish really make this guitar unique.
A very well-built, well-playing guitar, and at $119, it's a freaking steal!! Please note, though, that the tuning pegs can get a little crusty-feeling, so just add a little oil to them and this thing is ready for anything.
I'm amazed at how you can get all this for such a low price. A terrific value!
