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.

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).

                These Indonesian squiers are a fantastic value.

                  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.

                      I purchased this with the intentions of personalizing it, to make it my own. I took the guitar completely apart.The neck is a dream to play,and the color is phenominal. Electronics and hardware are definitely cheap. I plays good right out of the box and you can adjust the string action to your liking,plays really well.

                      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!
