Squier Bullet Stratocasters
For a traditional feel, you'll probably like the Squier Bullet Strat with Tremolo. Like all Squier instruments, it's incredibly affordable, which makes it the perfect beginner axe - especially when you consider how lightweight and easy-to-handle it is. The tremolo bridge is a feature that's normally reserved for more expensive guitars, which makes this Strat an impressive bang for your buck. And you've even got some classic colors to choose from, so you get all the style that the Stratocaster is known for.
If you'd like to turn things up a notch with a guitar that goes above and beyond the vintage Strats, check out the Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo. Where the basic version has three single-coil pickups like the original Strat, this model ups the ante by replacing one of those with a humbucker. That means bigger tone and a beefier sound when you want it, so this guitar can go from jangly British style to grinding hard rock riffs with ease.
Whether you prefer the traditional tones of the classic model or the aggressive humbucker on the HSS, Squier Bullet Stratocasters have something to offer any guitarist. Easy to pick up and play, with a vintage Strat setup for authentic sound and style, they've got a high-end look and feel with a price tag that anybody can afford... so what are you waiting for?
