Buy more than one of these if you can!!!

This was the best deal on a Fender Squier Tele guitar that I have ever seen.

It was so good that I not only bought the 2 tone sunburst model. Read complete review

This was the best deal on a Fender Squier Tele guitar that I have ever seen.

It was so good that I not only bought the 2 tone sunburst model.

I also bought the "Orange Metallic" model with the cool Metallic pickguard that comes on that color model.

Picked up one of these for $99 during a Columbus Day flash sale. Straight out of the box the guitar was set up to play. Action was low, intonation was good, no fret buzz. I didn't bother plugging it in until I got to my studio. Played through a Vox AC30CC2 the pickups had a lot of mid range and low end but none of your typical Tele bite. I expected a lot more chime coming through that amp. The 3-way switch and tone knob both had very little affect. It's not the worst sounding guitar in the world but the only thing that makes it a Telecaster is the way it looks. On the bright side, the pickguard features standard mounts and underneath it the body is routed for dual humbuckers. I'm installing a new wiring harness with 375k pots, a P90 in the bridge and a SD Quarter Pounder in the neck. When all is said and done, this will be a tone machine falling well below the $300 mark. Again, this is a dead sexy looking instrument-- especially in the black sparkle or the metallic orange. I would recommend it to anyone just learning how to play or for those searching for a platform to build upon. For those looking for a guitar to extend your sonic palette, look elsewhere as you will be disappointed.

Light guitar, heavy sound. Great combo, great value for price

By Josh

from Mpls, MN

Comments about Squier Bullet HS Telecaster Electric Guitar:

As is, this a fine beginner's guitar for rock/light metal. The humbucker sounds pretty good. As everyone else has stated, the guitar is super light, but this doesn't seem to affect sustain or sound. The neck is smooth and easy to play. The frets on mine weren't sharp, and the setup was actually decent. I replaced the pickups with Lil Punchers from GFS, and replaced the pots with 500k pots and a real Tele 3-way switch, and the guitar is now a beast. All for well under $200 total. Great base for modding.

Budget price, GREAT Tone and Feel just as the reviews say.............

By GREG

from Sonoma, CA

Comments about Squier Bullet HS Telecaster Electric Guitar:

Took a chance on ordering this beauty to see if I'd end up with a good winner, and I did! She is gorgeous, has very great tone, and feel. I got this on sale for under a hundred. What a bargain! like it better than the vintage Squier Tele I had a few years ago. Seems to be a better build, and definitely Tone and Beauty above to me.........

Perfect Long Gig Guitar!

By Juan

from Texas

Comments about Squier Bullet HS Telecaster Electric Guitar:

The main thing I love about this guitar is the weight, it is incredibly light, almost as light as a good acoustic. It makes all my other solid body electric guitars feel like they have useless dead weight all over the place. I have been using this for several months and it is holding up really well. Neck is satin finish for easy fast movements. The single coil position is great all around and the full position feels more like a boost than a lead tone, still great though.

Fender Squier Bullet Tele

By Sam

from Arlington, Texas

Comments about Squier Bullet HS Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I purchased this at 89.00 during Labor Day sale. I thought it would just be a knockaround guitar I was quite surprised. Not the best tuners, but they are sealed tuners and hold tune pretty well. The neck pickup gives some spank that you want to hear from a Tele. The humbucker really has some bite for an Asian made pickup. The electronics are what you would expect at this price point. The frets needed polishing, was getting a little gritty feeling when bending strings. No sharp edges on mine, surprisingly. Dressed out and rounded the nut. Did a full setup. Put an F-spaced Seymour Duncan JB and added a push/pull tone pot. Now she's a player. Basswood body has some nice grain. I recommend this guitar for beginners and players alike. I'm going back for the metallic orange HH strat today at 99 bucks.

    Comments about Squier Bullet HS Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    I'm an out-of-the-womb drummer, but have dabbled with piano and guitar since I was about 8 years old. I play strictly for fun (and to appease the inner demons that often get angry with me when I haven't rocked the music out of my—sorry, *our* body. So trying out this Squier tele was, for me, a low-risk risk. I was very impressed out of the box. But ever since I took her to my local-ish music store and had them get the nut adjusted and intonation set, et cetera, I have been blown away. Great value, and great guitar for those in my position, and who don't want to spend an extra 300% to have the word "Fender" in a larger font on the headstock.

    Comments about Squier Bullet HS Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    Great little guitar! Does more than you expect! I picked this little beauty up and was really impressed with the way it was set upand played! I did notice that the fret ends were quite good and the neck was straight! I did however set it up to my standards! I replaced the pickups with a USA Fender Atomic Humbucker in the bridge and a USA Fender Hot tele neck pickup and new pots and a 4 way pickup selector switch for series selection of both pickups in the 4th position! Now this is a total keeper and player that sings! I would replace it if it was stolen!

    wow

    By ken

    from Mount Pleasant, tn

    Comments about Squier Bullet HS Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    I chose the sunburst. This $89 dollar tele rocks. The fit and finish on mine is awesome, no blem detected. No sharp frets. Plays like a dream. Ive never got a guitar from guitarcenter that I didnt have to set up. The pots and switch needed grounding (black plated panel) when I checked out the grounds I found out mine has a coil tap lead. It didnt take me long to drill a hole and add a switch. Now it does have the option of single coil bridge to get that brightness. At home on a combo amp the factory wiring was fine, but on the jcm 800 full stack set on melt the paint there was 60 cycle hum before I gave the grounds some work. Im gonna try to get another before they are gone.

    Comments about Squier Bullet HS Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    I have been looking for a good donor guitar to do a Floyd Rose conversion onto a Tele body. This was the perfect donor for me. I had to flat mount the bridge due to the body's thin profile. The neck is fast and smooth. The pick-ups are standard Squire. I spent a couple hundred to hot rod this thing and have a guitar that I wouldn't be afraid to take onto a stage. If you aren't a brand junkie, this is a great axe for the money.

    Tele Bullet HS

    By Steven

    from Austin Tx

    Comments about Squier Bullet HS Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    I just got mine in sunburst and the finish is very nice, no flaws like my Bullet Strat from China. This one is "Crafted in Indonesia" . There are a couple of mistakes in the description however. First the neck is 25.5 " scale not 24.75 and also there are 22 frets not 21( see picture). The neck also has the inlayed skunk stripe on the back. No sharp fret ends or loose parts. The set up was very good requiring only a slight tighting of the truss rod with the included allen wrenches. Plays great for an inexpensive model nice addition to an ever growing collection.
