    You could upgrade the ceramic pickups to AlNiCo pickups to get an better tone, but remember that it is a starter guitar with cheap components, so if you only want a perfect instrument, you better start with a Fender Mexican Strat , but if you care first about acquiering good guitar skils at a low price, you should try the Squier.

    And the last thing to know, with a humbucker, you get a high output rock tone ready to get ristorded, wich is nice because you can play more styles, but you loose the brige single coil that was sounding more like a Telecaster. This is a though choice but you can have more than one guitar if you like playing!
    Compared to other guitars of its class, it has great standard features. It has everything a strat needs, like a tremolo system, two tone knob for neck and gridge pickups. It also has a humbucker, wich makes it good for more music styles.
    The tremolo system is basic, it is harder to set it so it doesn't go out of tune, but since the bridge is sitting on the wood, I just unscrew the whammy bar and it keeps the tuning better.
    The body's finnish is amasing sepecially in sunburst. Its shiny and the sunburst painting is beautyful.
    It looks like a real strat because it is not just a copy, it is a real fender design.

    The neck is unfinished, you can toutch the smoot maple neck, I like it because it is not sticky, but that might be a reason why this guitar is cheap. The frets are smooth and sot sharp.
    The action was set low without fret buzz but that might be the store's setup.

    The tuners are cheap, indeed, but does the job, the also are greased and sealed.

    The sound is great, I did not expect to hear a true fender tone comming from this guitar, but It is closer then I thought, the only defference is the ceramic pickups. The Neck pickup is warm and nice.

    The body is made of Basswod instead of Alder wood, but basswood is a neutral wood and it will resonate wit your strings without changing the tone.
    I bought this guitar and It acts just like a strat should do. The design comes from Fender and it is based on their Stratocasters. If you compare to other strat-like guitars, this might be the closest to the real thing.
    If you want to try guitar and you like strats, you should try this one, for the price it could not be a big mistake.

    my friend bought one of these to start out on guitar so me and him could jam. this piece of crap even sounded like crap to him when he didn't know the difference between a humbucker or a single coil. dont buy this guitar EVER!!!! go buy an Epiphone Les Paul or just about anything else.

      Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

      This guitar is well worth the price for what it is. It is a beautiful sunburst and the finish is flawless. I had no problums with the tuners on my squier and played real nice right out of the box. It sounds really good and the frets are not too bad. I thought i might have to do some ajusting when i started playing it, but i did not have to do anything. I guess i was lucky on that part of it. I own a lot of different guitars and i thought i would like to have one of these, so i went ahead and got one and do not regret it at all. Very nice guitar and i am glad i bought one. Way to go squier by fender.

        Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

        This was the very first electric I have purchased after playing an acoustic for 3 years. I wanted something to play around with just get some new sounds. I was not disappointed. I picked it up straight from the box, tuned it, and played out some nice tunes. Whenever you first get the guitar, the strings will come untuned quickly, once you break them in they stay tuned for a while. I'd say for the money you are paying, this is a great deal!

        Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

        Sound is good. No weak spot or buzz issues. Single ply pickguard is not straight but 70's strato has the same issue so I use it to stick sparer picks. The weight varies from one lot to the other.

        After initial inspection of stock condition I disassembled for modification.

        Some of screw thread are almost stripped so I repaired.

        Tuners are cheap and turning resistance is inconsistent but stay in tune very well. If you want to upgrade tuners, note the diameter of the neck holes. Squire has smaller diameter holes than Fender's.

        Body was well made and finish is nice and clean. Some bridge screws were weak. Neck is straight. Good holding balance.

        As always the fret edge was rough. I file them down to my likings. This is the only major minus for this guitar.

        It is fun to customize this Strato. Most Fender parts work well. Upgrading is fun.

          This is an awesome guitar. I popped it out of the box, tuned up and plugged in. After a little adjusting with tone and sound, I recorded a lead guitar track a couple of days later. Keep in mind that I give this five stars factoring in the price. Don't expect top of the line, but this guitar sounds good and you just can't go wrong with Fender/ Squier.

              Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

              I got this guitar a while ago; it was the first electric I ever got. I have always loved Strats and ever since I started playing guitar I had always wanted at least one guitar with a whammy (tremolo) bar. The guitar stays in pretty good tune even after using the tremolo a bit, which is a very important feature in my opinion. The pickups are ceramic, so are obviously not as good as alnico ones, but you have to keep in mind that this is a beginner guitar, and you should not have high expectations as far as the hardware goes. If you are a experienced guitarist like me, then you know there are much better guitars than this, so I would mainly suggest this to beginners, or a cheap guitar for practicing and jamming. This is still one of my favorite guitars that I have ever gotten, right after my Epiphone Vintage G-400 SG. However, comparing the two is like apples to oranges, the G-400 is not a beginner guitar (far from it, in fact I would greatly suggest it to more experienced players) and the Squier Strat is a beginner guitar. Overall, this guitar is the best one you will find for the money. I highly recommend it to beginners.

                    It's a great guitar for what I needed. I was just getting it for basic jamming and "different" sounding guitar for recording. The only real "con" is that a couple of the tuning machines are a real pain to turn. I feel like they may break. The only other downside is it didn't come with the tremelo bar. It was a condition "3" used instrument, but has no wear that I could find.

                    I think this is a great beginner guitar. The neck is slim and fast and the finish is beautiful, mine is sunburst. The guitar I learned on had strings &frac1 inch above the fret board and no truss rod. I wish these were around when I was learning. I bought mine to install an existing prewired pickguard and it is great. The weakest part of this guitar is the tuners but that is an upgrade that can easily be added.
