Excellent bang for your buck. This is the second guitar I have purchased of this model. I play higher end guitars as well, such as Gibsons, and Paul Reed Smiths, and there is something about the playability and tone of this model, that can compete with those, for a fraction of the price. I was expecting to replace the tuners, and set the action, but the action showed up ideal, and the strings have not gone out of tune once since I first played it. Can't find a better deal.

One star review because even though I ordered as New, GC sent me a very scratched model that was obviously pulled from the shelves. Deep scratches too and looks like it's been played for years! It arrived with no box damage and was packaged well. They said they would b happy to exchange but who wants to go through all that trouble. When ordering, request that u don't want store model, I guess. Guitar plays great. GC should know better!

    Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster with Tremolo HSS:

    I played it in a Consignment shop. I loved it. Never seen it before. Fit, Finish, Sound. The Neck is Amazing. I said if it's here? When I come back? I want it. I overpayed. Then I spent as much as I paid in Duncan pickups! Neck & Bridge... Because I Can. Smokin' Hot STRAT! Sits in my Stable of Paul's, SG's, Amer Strats...It Rocks!

      Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster with Tremolo HSS:

      poorly manufactured. out of the box it needed a complete setup and one the tuners broke off. had to invest another $60 to fix these small issues. other than that sounds great, doesn't sound like a squire but a higher-end model.

      Excellent guitar for the price.

      Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster with Tremolo HSS:

      This is quite a nice little axe, especially for the price. Very well manufactured with no apparent finish or assembly flaws. Sounded nice out of the box, though adjusting the setup for personal taste is likely, action was somewhat high for my playing style.

      I have both a tube and a solid state amp rig, and this guitar sounded very nice on both, either distorted or clean. Currently own an Epiphone Les Paul Standard, a Yamaha Pacifica, and an Aria MAC Series. This Bullet Strat could be the most comfortable guitar to play I've owned, and I've had quite a few.

      As stated, very well put together for a guitar at this price point. Finish is flawless, switches and knobs are sturdy and smooth. I do plan on replacing the tuning heads as the ones on the guitar are very "basic", and the bridge pick-up has just a little too much "twang" for my taste.

      As boxed, this guitar would suit a beginner or intermediate player. I've been playing for a decade and with new tuners and a new Duncan or DiMarzio humbucker, I wouldn't be shy about using this in the studio or in a live set.

        Excellent neck, decent fret finish. No "cheese grater" fret ends. Setup out if te box was a "C-" and tge starter strings were ok-ish. Nice tone and playability after better intonation ang pickup adjustment. Overall, a superb value.
