I had bought this guitar a few weeks ago because I was getting into the blues music and wanted something cheaper than a Fender Strat. I came across this beautiful guitar at the store, tested it out and loved how it felt in my hands. I was a bit skeptical at first because knowing Squier is a Japanese brand along with Epiphone but I was blown away with how comfortable it feels and how great the tone is. The only thing that I don't like about it is the really thin feeling strings but that is just me, I'm so used to playing my Epiphone that's got thicker strings on it. It will take some getting used to but overall I love this guitar and recommend it to anyone who's in the market for a good priced electric.

The guitars nowadays are just so well done in constructions compared to a decade ago. Made in China products are not to be disregarded just like that. This guitar is well made, construction, sounds good, and it's more than enough for someone that will start playing the guitar. I love the colors. Pros: well made, sounds good, colors. Cons: the frets sticks out to the arm a little bit.

Can't believe how GREAT this guitar is so I had to buy a friend of mine one also !!!

By Terrence Lipinski

from Utica NY

Comments about Squier Bullet HSS Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

This is what's cool, it's plays great, it looks great especially the 2 tone vintage Brown sunburst finish. It's got an nice Humbucker in the bridge position so no need for routing out the body or the pickguard as it's all ready customized for you. The next thing is it's even got the rosewood skunk stripe going down the middle of the back of the neck. You usually only will find this on the more expensive models of Strat's or Tele's. I'm telling you from being a player for over 50 years in the business that although some may only think that this is a some sort of beginner's type of guitar. They would be dead wrong. If you can play and you need not just an extra guitar that you'll need to have modded and put more money into it because you won't have to do that. This guitar is just the type of super deal that doesn't come to often these days when it comes to getting a great playing guitar for this type of price.

A disappointing experience...

By Guitar Center is Not Good

About Me Experienced

Comments about Squier Bullet HSS Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I purchased a new Squier Bullet in metallic green through the Guitar Center website. When it arrived, the box had a big hole in it. Strangely, it was a Gibson branded box, not a Squier. It turns out that the guitar came from the nearest GC store, not a GC warehouse. It did not include the original packaging/paperwork/tremolo spring/allen wrenches that it should have and I have no reason to believe it was a new item. I suspect that it was an in store demo. The guitar had large cracks in the neck pocket. When I contacted the GC that shipped the guitar and asked them to provide a return shipping label, they never did so. I ended up wasting money by having to return it in store. This experience, as well as others I've recently had with Guitar Center, have made me very wary of buying anything from them.

Amazing Guitar for the price!!!

By CHRIS GARCIA

from Olney, TX

Comments about Squier Bullet HSS Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I have played about 5-6 hours on this guitar so far and absolutely love it! The sound from this guitar is surprisingly great for the price of it. It has a great feel, the set up right out of the box was spot on for what I like and it looks great. The fret bars are a tad larger than what I would prefer but you can't beat it for a $120 guitar. I would recommend this to anyone who is a new player or even an experienced player who wants a cheap Strat sound.

    My first electric guitar

    By Stephen Hull

    from Racine Wisconsin

    Comments about Squier Bullet HSS Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    For anyone who truly needs a start in the guitar world, this is what you need. I paid $90 for this guitar, brand new, and if you're willing to take care of it, you will find that this guitar will exceed all of your expectations that you would have for a guitar that is less than $200. The tuners and the jack are the only downfall of this guitar but aren't hard to manage. I've had this guitar since September 2013 and plan on keeping it for the rest of my life. The picture of the metallic green one above don't do it justice.

    Comments about Squier Bullet HSS Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    After playing a nylon stringed, acoustic guitar for a few months,i wanted to start playing an electric guitar, thus, i bought this, and im glad i did.
    It fits very firmly when playing while sitting down, the neck feels smooth, and it stays in tune very well.
    It's sound is not only great, but also very versatile. I have been able to play many different styles/genres of music with this thing, from soft and clean blues licks, to fast and hard metal songs.
    I had gotten the metallic green version, and it looks amazing for the price. The black tuners are also nice touches.
    Overall, i love this guitar, and it is a fantastic addition to my small arsenal.

    It is green and great

    By elliot

    from EAST NORRITON

    Comments about Squier Bullet HSS Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    The first thing I noticed was how light it was in comparison with my MIM Telecaster. The second thing was how easy it was to play, very comparable to my Tele. This is no beginners only axe. I enjoy playing on it tremendously. It did need a little adjustment, slight truss rod, an intonation, and string height. It's good to get familiar with those things anyway. Once that was accomplished, it held it's tune as well as most of my other guitars with locking tuners. I always check the tuning before playing. It has nothing to do with the guitar lots of times, but the weather and ambient conditions. It is also very good looking and sweet sounding. It is a bargain in today's marketplace.

      Comments about Squier Bullet HSS Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      I started playing in the 80s. Started on a beat up old old old acoustic. My first electric was a Les Paul knock off. Then I became a total guitar snob. I have owned Ibanez, Jackson, Schecter, Charvel, etc... All cost considerably more than this squire. I am very impressed with this guitar. It makes me wonder why I always looked down on squire. For the money you really can't beat these guitars. I would recommend them to anybody. Especially students. I got this guitar kind of by accident but I can see now that it was meant to be mine.

        This Squire looks great and sounds great. The neck is really nice and fast. Everything is solid and well made. It plays pretty good without doing anything but tuning it. I had to set the intonation which is easy to do with one of the many online videos out there on the subject. I think you would benefit from a professional set up as well to make everything perfect. Anyone can learn guitar on this model without feeling like the guitar is holding them back. The quality is really good.

          It's a strat! It's a Strat with humbuckers!! At fist I wanted the double humbuckers. It grinds really well. Lots of chunk and the bridge pickup can scream pretty good. I play it through a Fender Frontman 25watt. This baby can make you deaf Plus it looks like buddy holly's Strat, or Steven stills, or brownie that Eric Clapton played. Sweet.

          I picked this up as a backup for my Sunday Praise Team efforts. Plays great, sounds good, just has kind of sharp edges on the fretboard. I expected that some, but I will probably do some softening of the radius in the near future. Played through my Super Champ S2, the sound is REAL FENDER. Nice alternate for my LP.

              I forgot how much I liked strats. I really like the way it looks, feels, and plays. I have 2 baritone guitars with thick strings and am kind of 'over it' at the moment. This is comfortable, sounds good, and I think the neck width is perfect for me. I have pretty large hands, but it doesn't feel too small in them. I put 10-52 strings on... sounds great clean and with distortion. Well worth the price. I've spent a lot more on guitars way worse.

              Minor shipping fiasco aside, It's a great guitar for the price. I would not hesitate to recommend a Bullet Strat to any beginning musician. I have already ordered some Tex-Mex Pickups and upgraded electronics (strictly personal preference) for mine, but the built in items are certainly good for someone just learning, and the low initial cost makes for an awesome base for modding.

I have a Gibson Les Paul Studio and I like playing the Fender more. You can play heavier styles of music on it as well. I was playing Metallica songs on it and it sounded great. Better then I thought. Stayed in tune as well. I'm totally satisfied and really like the black on black style of it. If your thinking about it just get it. Its worth it.
