    Comments about Squier Limited Edition Bullet Strat SSS with Tremolo:

    Played a couple of these at a few locations and the quality of workmanship and tone rings true. I would change in this guitar would be the tuners, Schaller or Grover's, will make this guitar class A, the nut is plastic but add some #2 pencil graphite and you will be good to go. There is no need to change pickups or anything else IMO.
    "This is NOT the C Modern profile neck" it is the C profile neck and it's a little thick at the nut and has a very awesome feel, the right guitar neck will "Greatly" help your technique and will help you play comfortably and you should improve from day to day. With the right neck your fingers will grab the strings in the right position and land in the right spots.
    Volume Pots and Tone
    There is a noticeable wide variety of tone differences and clarity between the pickups. When you roll back the volume you don't have a huge drop in the treble frequency, this guitar has a nice "Clean Up"
    Some setup tips: Do at your own risk, sorry disclaimer.
    Add the extra spring that comes with it or get another for the tremolo.
    Float the bridge a little so that you can pull back on the tremolo.
    Get quality tuners, it will be worth every penny.
    Use gun oil on every part where there is metal to metal contact, springs, tremolo screws, strings saddles.
    Thanks have a great day!

      Well built guitar by fender! Sounds great , looks sweet. My research leads me to believe that this is one of the top 3 starter guitars. In my opinion it's #1 of the top 3. Trust me l did a lot of research. It looks, feel, plays and sounds like a more expensive guitar then I paid

      Comments about Squier Limited Edition Bullet Strat SSS with Tremolo:

      I am a retired musician and I have owned a few strats over the years. Usually another musician liked the way mine sounded and wanted it so I sold it to them or traded them for something. I studied under a luthier so I knew how to set up a guitar to get the best sound out of them. None that I owned had such a fancy paint job as this one! It plays just fine and sound very nice. I will probably do lots of modifications over the years and some other musician will probably want it. I already have some different parts for it that I will in my spare time install to improve looks and sound. I am pleased.

      It's a Squire and that's not a bad thing.

      Comments about Squier Limited Edition Bullet Strat SSS with Tremolo:

      I bought this guitar because it was on sale. Let's just forget the sparkle red paint (I returned it because I couldn't handle the ugly). There are over a million opinions of the "bullet strat" online but don't listen to them. This is a great guitar to learn on. Not only does it look like a Stratocaster but it really does have the character of one too. This guitar is well worth the money. In my opinion a cheap Squire is closer to an expensive Fender than a cheap Epiphone is to a real Gibson. Play this guitar till your fingers bleed then upgrade. Simple as that. Great guit for the money.

      I bought this for my five-year-old grandson who loves to hear me play guitar. Had to lower the B string, but other than that the guitar Plays great. I feel like I am playing a 8 or $900 guitar. Very well put together, Beautiful Finish
