the kind of guitar you can get for nothing today is absurd. modern technology like CNC machines have just made

the concept of "craftsmanship" mostly irrelevant. this is my mini Charvel clone. it probably came out of the same factory in Indonesia,

too, at least as the lower model Charvels and Jacksons are.

it's just a guitar. it's a tool. it's what Fender set out to do and he did it right. it's simple--not quite as simple as a Telecaster,

but basically a tele with a little extra flair, that's all. it's a work machine. it's not gonna be the guitar you use playing at the

White House for the president, and probably not the guitar you use to lay down tracks in the studio. but for learning, practicing,

jamming, and having fun, it rocks hard. neck is solid, no sharp edges on the frets, really slim and fast profile, no gloss on the back so

it's easy to slide around. nice one-piece maple with a skunk tripe. action out of the box was high, but setting it down to 4/64" was

easy-peasy with hardly any buzz. the truss rod works like it should.

and the finish is wonderful. the cons are.. well, obviously a lower end tremolo as on this guitar is going to be a little useless. you

can't do pretty flutters with it, but you can divebomb all day. out of the box it was decked anyway, so for new players it won't go out

of tune. the nut was cut fine and the tuners were tight. just all around a great guitar. the pickups, however, are extremely unbalanced..

the middle pickup seems to be wound really hot, but I kind of dig it myself. there's probably something to be done in the electronics

with the potentiometers and tone capacitor to balance it out, but I don't know much about that. I messed with the pickup heights to

compensate and it rocks nicely, but the sound isn't the kind of butter you'd expect from a "real strat." who cares, though, for a benjamin?

    Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster with Tremolo HSS:

    I got this when I was just starting out. It was my second guitar (My first was a B.C. Rich Warlock). It's a good guitar if you're just starting out, which I was. But here's the thing, I've only ever been able to keep .09-.46's on it, which is not my preferred gauge. Other than that it's a fine cheap guitar.

    A Bullet will always be your best bargain

    By Jeff

    from Amelia, Ohio

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster with Tremolo HSS:

    I paid a slightly lower sale price for the black with maple fingerboard model. As always, Squier delivers. There is no question that Squier gives you more for your money than anything else out there. For 95% of the players out there, this IS as good a Stratocaster as you need. For the other 5%, just replace the tuners.

      Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster with Tremolo HSS:

      Once again for those who don't realize it that this isn't just a beginner's guitar although it's a great on at that. However any pro player or intermediate player can always count on one of these as a second or third guitar or you'll find that you'll want to play it all the time too.

              I can't say enough how much I've liked the Bullet series. I just got this because I already had an HH Strat and was very happy with it. Neck is good. Frets are decent. The pickups are surprisingly decent. Not to say changing them out wouldn't give you a major upgrade, but they're ok.

                    Once again an incredible value for a very incredible Squier by Fender Strat guitar model. I bought the Surf Pearl Green and I like all of the black hardware especially that they've upgraded the machine heads with the adjustable screw in the tuning buttons which makes quite a big difference than the ones that didn't have them on older models that I own and purchased from Musician's Friend.
