This is a great guitar for the price. I have had mine for around 3 years now and still, it plays like it did the first time I picked it up. I DEFINITELY recommend getting new strings because the ones that come on the guitar will rip your fingers to shreads. It does come out of tune fairly easily so if you're a beginner I would invest in a tuner, and there is also a slight bit of buzzing from the strings occasionally but nothing too serious. This guitar is perfect for beginners, even to intermediate players as well. Like I said, I have had this guitar for over 3 years, and it still players beautifully, and it surprisingly has that rich Fender tone. For the price, this guitar cannot be beat, if you're just starting, or don't want to break your budget, this guitar is definitely the way to go.

Let me start this off by saying, For the price tag, It is what it is. I got this guitar in an HH format, With a Black Pickguard, Black Knobs ect. in the Sunburst. It's absolutely Stunning. It looks amazing. When people look at this guitar they all say "That's a Beautiful Instrument". Unfortunately, They also will then play it. The tuners are complete Trash. The Trem system is Garbage. It's completely unreliable. I would not suggest you buy this if you are gigging(don't worry i'm not that stupid). However. That is not what this guitar was built for. Bedroom Strumming. If your new to playing, The Cons I've listed you probably won't notice. If your an experienced player Particularly a Blues player where String bends and Trem use is Frequent. You will end up setting this down in Frustration. Other then the tuning problems and the Trem. It's actually not a bad guitar to play. When it does manage to maintain tuning. The pickups on a Overdrive channel are hot and Raspy. I was actually quite surprised with that. and when clean they really sing. I was also pleased that it still keeps a very "strat" sound. the neck isn't half bad at all. It's a good guitar to learn on or make a project out of. However like i said. If your Experienced, i would only suggest this small purchase to hold you over while you save your caps to buy a higher end Strat.

    I don't know how to play on lick.I just bought it to hang on the wall and impress chicks.
    If you want to score, buy it, just have an excuse on not playing it. Looks good hanging straight up and down.

                Comments about Squier Bullet Strat with Tremolo:

                I purchased this guitar with the intent of modding it so I can get some experience doing "tech" work, as I don't want to practice on my more expensive guitars and be out a bunch of money if I do something stupid, and also so I could put together a fun little guitar to mess around on. I didn't have very high expectations for it, simply because of its price. However, to my surprise when I got it the guitar was already set up to a decent action, the intonation was spot on, and none of the frets needed filing. The pickups aren't great, but they aren't horrible either. Before I swapped them out I tested some blues licks on them and they sounded just fine, but a good amp helps out with that too. All in all, this is DEFINITELY worth the money you pay, which could be a good or bad thing depending on what you are looking to do with it, but for me this was a prefect guitar to start as the base for a project guitar.

                Comments about Squier Bullet Strat with Tremolo:

                I've been playing 19 years.
                On my sunburst 2010 the neck is the best part of the guitar, medium profile, satin finish, nice feel, ok frets that allow for medium action with no buzz.
                The tuners, the sound, and the color-look are poor though, and I'd recommend an affinity squier instead, that has no such issues. I set up my bullet and still found it dead sounding and with an uglyish color. Eventually I sold it; maybe try one in person to see if it suits you.
                I'm a picky guy and for under 200 I'd go for an affinity strat or tele or a jackson or a sterling, but no bullet, epiphone or ibanez (had them all).

                I have a strat and her squire actually has better sustain
                Has a very comfortable neck and the slim body is great for kids

                  Comments about Squier Bullet Strat with Tremolo:

                  I have had so much fun with this guitar. I really can achieve virtually any tone possible on this guitar(given a good amp). I have played any where from Metallica to Hendrix, to Dire Straits, and Johnny Cash. Great little guitar by fender. I would recommend buying the model with the humbucking pickups, as because the other guitars come with nicer pickups. And lastly, CHANGE THE STRINGS. the stock strings are horrible.
