I went to guitar center to try out a few guitars and ended up purchasing this one. its nice and light...the sunburst color is awesome. i played it in the store and the sound was great. i got one out of the box since i didnt want to take one of the ones that were on the floor since other people have played them...i was so happy to get home and play my new guitar...i unboxed it and right off the bat i noticed the back had a scratch on it..the the tuners are popping out of the guitar...paint is chipped near the neck...this isnt the first fender product i purchased that had an issue right out of the box...my epiphone sg i purchased a few years ago was flawless when i unboxed it...ill be taking this back to exchange for another one...

Not as shown in picture

By Alex

from Michigan

Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

In the picture the humbucker looks to be well placed in the body. But the guitar I received had a square cutout with the humbucker shoved in. My top single coil pickup was also set into the guitar crooked. Other than that it is as advertised.

Great guitar for the price!

By Louis

from Algonquin,IL.

Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

I was looking for an inexpensive guitar to give for a gift but when I played this little gem I got one for myself too. Nice neck, light weight, great finish. I hate the big 70's headstock on the affinity series and wasn't expecting much from this guitar but I was suprised! The humbucker sounds nice and full. The single coils I may swap out. They sounded a little weak. The one I have has 3 screws to adjust the bridge pickup, the picture shows only 2? I prefer 3 to keep the pickup from moving. If you can play one in the store I would recomend it. I played a white one that had the nut too high. I made sure to check the nut on the sunburst one I purchased and it was lower. I have 2 explorers and a V and this one sounds cleaner with more "bite."

Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

This is my first electric guitar. Oncce i got it home i realized that i made the right choice in choseing this guitar. It was classic fender looks and sound for a fraction of the price. So in my opinion if your loking for a strat and dont have the money for a fender this is the guitar for you.

BUY IT!!!!!!

By Jesse Stewart

from La Mesa, CA

Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

You have got to buy this guitar. It sounds just perfect. I got the sunburst and im glad i did. Once I took it out of the box it just needed to be tuned and it was ready to go. The strings didnt need to be stretched or anything. It looks exactly like the picture. It sounds amazing too. When I was rocking out my neighbor thought there was a band next door. I recommend this guitar to people who love to rock out. BUY IT IM TELLING YOU ITS WORTH IT!!!

good guitar

By aaron

from alabama

Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

i have had it for a while and this thing squeals. this thing is far better than my last guitar it pulls out pinch harmonics flawlessly. the fret board is smooth the tremollo is nice. my only complaint is that the tuners are really hard to turn near impossible at times other than that it is perfect.

Squier Bullet Strat HSS

By Jason

from Chicago Illinois

Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

This is a really good guitar! I bought this guitar just to modify and play around with. Even with the stock pickups the guitar sounds great. Cant wait to put some better pickups in, a black pick-guard, and maybe different tuners. It would look really nice. But thats only my point of view! The guitar was in perfect condition when I bought it at my local guitar center. Not one flaw!

well worth every penny

By Dan A

from new cannan conecticut

Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

ok before you buy this guitar keep there thinggs in mind, 1st one of the realy high frets sounds totaly off. second, some frets are sharp, i cut myself a few times before they started to smoth out. third it starts making a buzzing sound in the amp after an year or so. now with that out of the wat, this guitar is a beginner guitar lets face it, but it has an amazing 5way pickup that you cant find in manny other guitars especilly for this guitar. second, this guitar is perfict for every one, it can play everthing from blues and jazz to screamo and hardcore meatal. third this guitar can stand a lot of abuse , once i was gone for a week at camp and my little sis had a fun time trying to break it. so overall this guitar is good but i had to give it 4 stars because it does have some down sides. i would recomend this guitar to any beginner, and even if your a pro get this guitar

Best Guitar In Price Range By Far

By Jake Kassuba

from Mount Pleasant, Michigan

Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

I have owned this guitar for over a year now and I can still say that I am very impressed with this axe. For the guitarist on the budget, this is definitely the best in the price range. Of course having it being licensed by Fender, I expected this Squier guitar to have great quality and it lived up to that standard. This guitar feels absolutely great. Sitting down since it has the classic strat body, it feels very comfortable. As for the actual feel on the guitar, I was once again blown away. The weight is just right and even though this was crafted in Indonesia, it does not effect the quality whatsoever. Of course your axe needs to look sweet and this guitar certainly does. I personally have the brown sunburst and it looks very great. It doesn't scratch easy and it cleans up very nice. When a friend of mine looks at the guitar on first sight without looking at the head, they mistake it for an official Fender Strat which I find pretty sweet! Now on to what really matters, the sound. Right when I first picked this up in my local Guitar Center I was utterly impressed by the sound that it has. I was looking for a guitar that I could emulate a lot of different playstyles and music genres on and this is the absolute perfect guitar in this price range to do so. It can pump out any classic guitar riff and it can tackle some metal because of the humbucker. I play Chili Peppers, Modest Mouse, Pink Floyd, and Metallica on this and it tackles all different styles great. After a year of owning it, it has shown no signs of lost quality. My only complainant with this guitar is after playing very aggressive for around 20 minutes, it does slowly start to phase out of tune. It is no reason the knock off a star though because for one, the price and two, it is a very easy fix. After owning the guitar for around 3 months I purchased some new Fender tuners for it and now it stays in tune great. To anyone that wants to add an electric to their collection or anyone that just wants a quality guitar to play on a budget, this is definitely for you.

Poor Quality At Best

By James Neese

from Cottage Grove, WI

Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

While I knew this guitar was a basic beginners unit I found a frankly disgusting. I came with stripped pick guard screws, stripped pick up adjustment screws. The tremolo bar was missing. The #9 strings are so frail that change tune by the hour. The tremolo block is supported by three springs which do not allow proper adjustment as per Fender and will not support #9 or # 10 strings. I have an Asian copy of a Strat (not China) which has far better workmanship unlike this unit from China. Since I scratched the back side of the body removing one of the tremolo springs (stupid me) I am sure they wont (Guitar Center) take it back. This Strat is junk, dont waste your money.

Best Deal In This Price Range

By Brad

from Madison, KS

Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

When I bought this guitar I only briefly played it. Its unbelievable the quality this guitar has for its price. If your budget is currently low, but you really need something new to play on this is the best guitar around for those circumstances. The action is low and great. It doesn't have feedback like a lot of other guitars at this price. The pinch harmonics are surprisingly easy to pull of, and the way the frets are set up are perfect for speed picking, and sweep picking. If your a player thats played for awhile and your ready to take your begginer's set up to the next level. Get this guitar, and a 15 Watt PeaVey Amp. The budget is under $250 total, and you'll get a good sound and you'll be able to learn effects, advanced techniques, and songs you could not before. It would certainly take your creativity to the next level.

I love this guitar!

By Jack R.

from Mays Landing, NJ

Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

I got a $25 gift card to Guitar Center this past Christmas and didn't know what to do with it. I have had a bass guitar for 14 years, but I didn't need anything for it. So what to do with the gift card? Buy my first electric guitar, of course!! My local store only had the SSS Bullet in stock, but I wanted the HSS, so I had to order it. Four days laterit arrived at the store. Since I don't actually play guitar, I asked them to set it up for me. We unpacked the box, and that was it... I fell in love with this guitar. The brown sunburst finish was beautiful! And I was so glad that I had decided to get a Fender instead of a cheaper copy. The only problem I've had so far is that the frets were like razor blades at first. I had to get a fret dress right away. However, even after the first fret dress, the edges of the frets were too high, and still irritating my had. She is in the shop again for a second fret filing. I had to admit that I have fairly small fingers, so I have to wrap my palm further around the neck than most people probably do. That is the only reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5. I'm sure someone with "regular" sized fingers wouldn't have the same fret problem as I am having. This is going to be my guitar for life. I've already bought two more guitars since, but this one will always be my favorite.

Great,Great Starter Guitar

By Jonathan

from Macon, GA

Site Member

Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

I bought this guitar about a year ago, it was my first Electric, and I must say its taken me a long way. The pickups are ok... my neck pickup barely gives off any signal, and the humbucker is a very loud, gainy, sort of thing that doesn't sound very thick. And really there's no difference in sound with both the middle and humbucker or just the middle, same with the neck and middle. Those might just have been problems with mine. I would more prefer one from the Affinity series, or Classic Vibe. in conclusion buy this guitar if your in a strict budget, if not go for something higher.
