    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.

        Comments about Squier Bullet HH Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

        The sound is incredible, the finish is excellent, but the joints in the body's guitar are a little tinny visible, but that is not a big deal, for the price and the sound this is a excellent deal. I have three different Squier models besides this one and this one is the best. I am very satisfied with this purchase. I recommend you guys to pull up the strings before tuning the guitar to keep tuned the guitar. Any guitar have those problems. I mention this here because many people complain for this issue and it is no problem by the manufacturer or model of guitar. Strings dilate or shrink, it depends of many factors. I hope this helps for those beginners, you guys must learn how to deal and set up your instruments. The sound it's not just by the instrument it's rather by the musician's abilities and knowledge of the his/her instrument.

          This guitar is simply amazing. It plays like a charm and stays in tune just fine. It is really great for clean tones, and metal too. You can even get an AC/DC sound out of this cheap squier. One Thing- CHANGE THE STRINGS AND REMOVE THE TREMOLO and you will have an awesome guitar that sounds like an expensive strat. By far best guitar ive ever owned. You will not be dissapointed if you buy this.

          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.

            Upon inspecting my Fender Bullet HH Stratocaster Guitar it had many small pock mocks on it. I'm not sure if this is a previously used model but I thought that I was purchasing a new one. Perhaps it was quality tested by someone before shipping. Otherwise, it looks great, plays well, with excellent pickup and sound quality.

                    Fist of all, I'm a synth player with a home studio, not a guitar player (yet). I bought this to add some new sounds and approaches to my tunes. The guitar looks great and feels great. I do have to say that so far, tuning it has been the only challenge. I bought a tuner with it. On some of the strings, the tuner knob gets turned with no change in pitch for an 1/8" of a turn and then "whoop", the pitch jumps quite a bit. And it's not the best at staying in tune. Perhaps if I get some new strings or after it's broken in this will change some. I've only played on it for a few hours so far.
