Squier

Description

This limited-edition Squier Bullet Telecaster pays tribute to the guitar that launched the electric revolution: the Fender Telecaster. Guitar Center recommends this Bullet model for new players who want the layout of the ‘50s classic, designed by Fender at an entry-level price. The body shape is iconic. The 21-fret fingerboard and dual pickups are faithful to the original configuration. The limited-edition finish is retro all the way. This guitar has hardly changed since the ‘50s, and thanks to Squier, it’s now accessible to all.

Squier Bullet Telecaster Limited Edition Main Features

  • Vintage-style Tele, 100% designed by Fender
  • Maple C-shape neck with Indian Laurel fingerboard and throwback 21-fret design
  • Two single-coil Tele pickups, laid out like the original, with a 3-way switch
  • Limited-edition finish gives the look of a classic electric guitar

Throwback Tele Designed by Fender

As the first commercial electric guitar from Leo Fender, the Tele holds a special place in nearly all genres of popular music. That’s why the design has stayed the same for decades. This Squier Bullet gives modern players a chance to start the same way so many greats did, with electronics and body shape that mirror the original.

Maple Neck With Indian Laurel Fingerboard and Old-School Fret Layout

Finished in satin for better grip, the comfortable C-shaped Tele neck is perfect for learning to play electric guitar. It’s made from 100% maple, long used by Fender for Teles and Strats. The fingerboard adds Indian Laurel tonewood to the mix, finished naturally to show off the attractive wood grain. The frets are kept to 21 for authenticity.

Clear, Simple Electronics That Made the Tele Famous

This Squier Bullet has the same dual single-coil layout from the original Tele. The bridge pickup is angled and open. The neck pickup is horizontal and covered. The simple 3-way switch can isolate either pickup or play both at once. This simple formula was the foundation that led to countless variations on the electric guitar. There is no better option for a beginner who wants great sound, clear controls and real pedigree.

Limited-Edition Finish Inspired by Vintage Guitars

To match the old-school layout, this limited-edition Squier Bullet Tele features a bold, elegant retro finish. It’s attractive but not flashy, just like the guitar itself. Beginners can play it anywhere with confidence.
