I bought this thing as a beater and a joke. Just something I could manhandle into nothingness and then replace without thinking twice. To say that I fell in love with this guitar would be a vast understatement. I have abused this thing for around a year, and it refuses to give an inch. The most damage I?ve managed to deal to this beast was during a moment of spastic rockstardom when I lumberjacked this thing on stage. All I had to show for all my smashing was a very out of tune Bullet with a small chunk out of the inch-thick poly-resin coating. I?ve panted it, repainted it, drawn on it, thrown it around, tuned it every way conceivable, dropped it, set it on fire (briefly), left it in the open garage for a couple of months, played all my gigs with it, and generally beaten the living hell out of this thing, and all it does is keep on working. Yes, it goes out of tune. All guitars do, this one no more than my mahogany, set-neck, bound, see-thru cherry finish, mother of pearl inlaid, high-dollar Fender Telecaster that I never play. Also the jack IS lose, and will refuse to stay tightened for long? my prescription is a little Lock-Tite, you should have no problem with this ever again. Ever. I have kept everything stock, as I see no reason to improve on simplistic perfection. The electronics in this thing are the most sleazy, scummy sounding collection of thin-wired junk the third world has to offer. It sounds beautiful. It screeches, hums, crackles, and feeds back so wonderfully you?d think you were trapped in a submarine filled with helium-drunk cats. One thing I love the most about this guitar is: during surf leads, downpicking all my notes and tapping the pickup with every hit. This creates a bizarre ?echo chamber? effect that I?ve been unable to reproduce with any other guitar.Yeah, not for everyone, but she?ll be my baby until I?m a dead guy.

I understand that this is a cheap featureless guitar and so I would not buy one. However a lot of these reviews are misleading potential beginners. The tuners are loose on all the bullets (special or not) and the sound is horrible. If you were to get this for a beginner it would most likely frustrate the hell out of them because if they're skill was to progress the strings going out of tune would make them think they weren't playing something the right way no matter how hard they tried. I owned a bullet for a little while (based off of being broke and going for what I could afford) and burning through some Clapton, or Hendrix, or Deftones, or even Nirvana is nearly impossible to do with out setting a string out of tune. I used to have to tune while playing still in the middle of a song during gigs. One bend = retune. Buy schecter.

sweet!!!!!!!!!!!

By Fenderman182

from SL, UT

See all my reviews

This guitar sounds rad. I ordered it so I could have something to just take with me wherever I go, something I could throw around. I have had for a couple of weeks and I find myself not throwing it around at all. The sound comming out of that humbucker going into my fender 60 watt deville is on of the best sound I have ever heard. Especially for a hundred dollar guitar. I havent had any problems with it yet. The frets are good, tuning machines are nice, the guitar is super light too, so it is hard to jump around on stage!!! I love it!

PUNK PARADISE!!!

By GreatCharlotte182

from encintas california

This guitar is simply amazing! I could do some crazy pick slides! Dont even get me started on the power chord ability! Look out Tom Delonge cause here i come! My band mate owns one and our band NEW FOUND BLINK has never sounded more HARDCORE PUNK! If Rockin some sweet power chords is the only thing you can do just like some green day then this guitar is AWSOME! I love how it has one tone and one tone ONLY! YES! This guitar defines PUCK ROCK GUITAR TECHNIQUE!

Just wanted to make a comment.Most people know who is Tom Delonge from Blink 182.This guitar is basically the same model as his except he uses a duncan invader pickup.

Okay

See all my reviews

I've been playing guitar a little over a year and this is my first electric. It's a good gutar for its price but I didn't like the lack of tremelo or the single humbucker and volume knob. All in all it's an alright guitar for people who can't afford the best, but it's not great.

Review

By KansasMusician

from Manhattan, KS

This is not a bad guitar. I find the neck on this guitar is very comfortable and the guitar has the classic 'Strat feel'. However, the single pickup config with volume control is not for my tastes. If you like to play heavy distorted rock this guitar will please you for a starter.

Good, but not the best...

By FlamingBullet1120-c.1hf

from Albany, NY

This guitar is pretty good depending upon what you're doing. The tone on it has a lot of grumble to it after a while. The strings go out tune quickly, and they also change their distance from the pickup pretty quick. Otherwise it's great. I love the fact that you can control feedback with it. It's great for punk... built for power chords, not jazz.

My Rough-Handling Guitar

By Zerstorer_26

from Rochester, MN

I already have a Fender Stratocaster with some Seymour Duncans, and I was looking for something I could handle a little bit rougher, was at a good price, and didn't sacrifice any tone. I must say that my stigma against Squiers has evaporated in this case. I was quite impressed at the quality of the sound. The humbucker is very bright and has a good bottom end when distorted. I still don't trust the standard series, but these are pretty good. It also weighs about half of what my Fender weighs, so it's easier to toss around. In the end, it was a pretty "sound" investment.

Great for the Beginner

By Corey-ExD8Y

from Leeds, NY

This guitar is a nice guitar for a beginner but, it has its ups and downs. The lower strings buzz and it only has a volume knob but other than that its an overall good guitar.
