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.

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.

Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster with Tremolo HSS:

Light and filled with tone! Chunk rock and lead guitar riffs. This does it all. Plus it looks like Buddy Holly's Strat, ormStephen Stills, or Eric Clapton's "Brownie". I also bought a sea foam green HSS Bullet Strat, it is a honey too! Such a deal!

              Comments about Squier Bullet Stratocaster with Tremolo HSS:

              Nice guitar. Certainly not a "real" Fender Strat, but a heck of a guitar for the price. I think (not sure) that the neck is a little shorter than a standard neck. At any rate, I ended up (for personal feel) putting on lighter gauge strings and tinkering with the bridge to lower the action right before getting a "fret buzz". It's a light weight guitar which makes it comfortable to play (while standing and having it on a strap).

                Any strat fanatic would appreciate this. I went with the surf pearl, It is candy for the eyes.
                These Indonesian squiers are a fantastic value.

                This is a really solid, guitar but I had to purchase thicker strings for it to get rid of some fret buzz.

                      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!
