Well, this thing just arrived at my doorstep an hour ago. Took it out of the box, adjusted the truss rod and tuned it. That's literally all I had to do, frets do need polished and that's the only thing I noticed that will need done, I will do that next string change. But all I'm gonna say is that I am completely blown away by it for the price and quality. Action is super low, intonation was almost dead on out of the box and it plays effortlessly...better than most of my expensive guitars. I had intentions on upgrading the pickups/electronics and tuners but there is no need to at all. People underestimate squiers, this just proves to me that price doesn't always matter.

Great looks, exclusive color. I'm disappointed that the frets were so rough. Not the ends. They were fine. I'm talking about the fret tops. Bending is almost impossible. Even after extensively polishing with 2 grits of 3M micro abrasive sheets and following up with NevRDull I restrung the guitar and there was little improvement.
I'm either going to have to buy more fret working equipment/tools or have a pro do it and this is a BRAND NEW guitar. Strangely, the in-store model that was at the pedal testing section had frets like butter. I suspect the in-store tech dressed those.
As far as good points go- the body finish is nice. Pots and tuners are nice. I did have to tighten the nuts on one or two tuners. The pickup cavity is generously fully routed for any pickup combination you may wish to add. I chose to add copper foil shielding over top of the black shielding print the factory used. Pickups are ok. Rather dark and dull sounding. Neck pickup is a touch brighter in tone than the bridge.
I'm replacing my pickups ASAP. After new pups and a fret job, I could almost have bought a new VM Mustang.

      Great look, sound & feel. Pick ups sound clear, both clean & distorted. I put heavier strings & adjusted the neck & bridge with the tools provided. Fender has really stepped up the quality with the Squier guitars. Love it!

      FSR, better than the sum of it's parts

      Comments about Squier FSR Bullet Mustang HH Electric Guitar:

      I've been playing a CV Duo Sonic since '08 and wanted to try the Mustang with HB's. I waited until I could actually get my hands on one at GC Houston. I played the Bullet Mustang, VM Mustang, and the P90 on the same day and ordered the black Bullet Mustang on line. I'm very happy with the choice, the neck is Fast, due to the 12" radius on 24" scale. (Checkout pro review vids). Thickness wise the neck is nearly identical to my CV DS. The humbuckers measure in the 9.5k range. I installed a bone nut and have been playing that one everyday.
      When I saw the Surf Green model on sale on Black Friday I bought that one too. Never liked SG enough to own that color but someone got this shade just right, faded not bright, it really is perfect. I set up the guitar myself, tightened the truss rod a half turn and lowered the saddles with the supplied Allen wrenches. Loosened the strings and lightly polished the frets with a fine finger nail emory board. Retuned and played a couple hours. The frets feel as nice as my MIM Strat. The bridge pup measures 9.8k and for me has the right tone. I did lower the neck pup and raised the bridge a little. These pickups might be good choices for magnet swaps, although it's easier to change amp settings. The surf green Bullet is almost 30,000 units older by the serial number than the black Bullet and is my favorite of two. The tones are just a little better clean or overdriven, very special in this price range. Both guitars are very resonant and have more sustain than I need.
      As a side note, my playing ability took a huge leap with the Duo Sonic. Playing is just easier with less string tension. I could practice longer and better.
      Many thanks to Squier for the fine guitar choices plus a shout out to Guitar Center Houston on Yale, thanks for the good work guys!

      A Christmas let down

      Comments about Squier FSR Bullet Mustang HH Electric Guitar:

      While still a fine guitar for the price. I was very disappointed with the fit and finish of the instrument. In the picture, the Mustang is shown with a clearly darker, more vintage colored pickguard (a cream or mint green). When plugged into a color identifier, the color comes up as rgb(234, 228, 204), but what came with it was a plain white pickguard that drastically changes the appearance of the instrument.

      It should also be noted that the body is not Olympic White, but rather Arctic White...these two changes make the guitar a lot more like low-end instruments, than the nice vintage look that they display on the website.

      On my particular model, the Squier logo seemed blurred and smudged slightly as if rushed and not a crisp print, but the neck did have a nice, subtle tiger stripe pattern on the back of the neck (I guess I got lucky on that one) . The guitar itself sounds fine and is what one would expect for that price range, but I would suggest to anyone buying it to swap the strings for a larger scale. I plan to place .12s on mine if I keep it.

      I bought it as a Christmas present and am currently deciding whether to keep it or not since I am so displeased with the colors which borders on "bait and Switch"...a clear misrepresentation of what the instrument REALLY looks like. Had they at least matched the correct color pickguard, I would have given it 4 stars, and possibly if considering the price point. To be honest, even a 2-star is something I contemplate as giving it too much credit after seeing the picture of what I expected to receive and what I actually got.

      Sure, cameras and lighting may alter the image colors, but don't you think that this is something the Guitar Center/Squier should make sure is correct before they release it to the public? Anyways, if I do return it, it will be because I was hoping to get a guitar with a vintage "look and feel" and this was clearly not what came and a disappointment at any price point.

      The Squire HH Mustang is a steal for the price. I did a detailed setup on it and had to tighten the Tuning machine bolts, then changed the strings to 11 gauge and put some oil on the nut. The guitar stays in tune now and the pickups are great! No reason to upgrade anything in my opinion. The Surf green looks so cool. Get one of these while you can. This guitar costs the same as an average guitar pedal. It's fun to play and an amazing bargain.

      Comments about Squier FSR Bullet Mustang HH Electric Guitar:

      These are the best Fender re-issue guitars for the price, IMO. This FSR Bullet Mustang looks amazing in Surf Green, I could not find a flaw in the finish anywhere, and it sounds mean and gritty, with that awesome grunge sound, both clean and dirty. This platform is perfect for modding, I plan on adding a custom pickguard cut for the traditional slanted neck single coil pickup like original Mustangs had, and replace the bridge humbucker with a zebra or similar that can be coil split, and swap out the volume knob with a push/pull type in order to coil split that pickup. It should sound even more amazing and look very similar to Kurt Cobain's Mustang after my mods are completed. What a cool looking and sounding Fender Offset guitar for an amazingly low price!! I think I might just buy the white one and put P-90's in it!!

        Comments about Squier FSR Bullet Mustang HH Electric Guitar:

        Bought this guitar because I like a 24" scale length. The Neck is little thinner than my 1960's Fender Bronco yet is wider. The 12" radius fingerboard is more to my liking, the weight is almost identical and I really like the humbucking lead pick-up! (the rhythm pick-up is a little muddy for my style). After doing a truss rod adjustment, and lowering the action to my preferences, it is a really nice instrument. Well built, very nice finish LOVE the white (I have too many black guitars, and just could not warm up to the blue sparkle) and it has a great vibe. The body sculpting was a surprise as the original Mustang does not have any ( and did not need any).
        All in all a great guitar !

          It's worth noting that although the Mustangs are a 24" scale, the overall guitar length is identical to a 25 1/2" scale strat so it fits nice and snug into a standard guitar case.

          Have used this bag for 5 years to protect my old Ensoniq SQ - 1 Plus 32. Has safely protected and transported it to more gigs than I can count, and still looks like almost new. Would definitely buy again, and would recommend to anyone needing a good gig bag for their 61 key keyboard, without spending a bundle.

            Comments about Squier FSR Bullet Mustang HH Electric Guitar:

            Alrighty I don't get to go out often so I mostly window shop on the GC site. I always read the reviews and wonder if I should believe them or not cuz they always sound a bit subjective. So I got it for Christmas and I've really been playing so I'm gonna give an honest review.

            I've played really expensive guitars in GC until they kick me out and this guitar feels like an expensive guitar. It's beautifully crafted. It earned it's right to be called an axe.
            One thing is that in the picture the whites are different. The pic gives it this kind of vintage look. It doesn't look like that. Go to your nearest dollar store and get a white binder. That's what color white is. Except really shiny. It doesn't look bad at just not like the picture, you know.

            The sound. So first off this thing plays Nirvana really well. Even the open chord unplugged Nirvana sounds good on it. Just saying. The pick ups are a little muddy. I mean just a little. Like I wouldn't even call it a con it's more me nitpicking but it sounds great. Really crisp, really loud, really full. If Lou Reed was a baritone he'd sound like these guitar pick ups. I love the sound. It plays rock really good. But what surprised me is it plays blues really good. Now of course, my band is a punk blues band so I'm really pleased. But just clean blues sounds ok. It's phenomenal or note worthy but it's good. No complaints here.

            Okay now the only thing that angered me is the tuners. Good grief. Now, I tune down to Eb cuz of my voice so at first it wasnt the guitars fault. I've got a tuner built into my amp but it tunes standard tuning. And the tuner on my phone tunes to Eb. So it was really wonky at first. Once I figured out what was going on I just used my phone to tune it and it stays in tune for about a day or so and then it's either really sharp or really flat. I store it properly and take good care of it sound it is the tuners. I'm gonna put on a pair of locking tuners. So for the tuners I'd say 5/10.

              Folks - this Squire/Fender FSR Bullet Mustang is a fine little guitar regardless of price point.

              I have number of higher level guitars... Gibson - Fender - PRS - Epiphone - Schecter.....But I have to say that the Squire FSR Bullet Mustang in Surf Green I just bought from Megan R. is absolutely excellent - a really fine instrument - plays really really well .... I can't put it down! It just blows me away in so many ways - perhaps I got lucky with landing a really good one.... But just the same.... GREAT JOB Fender/Squire on this one! I recommend it highly regardless of price point - what a nice fun little tone/sustain beast!

              Again - You have an excellent employee there in Megan R. in Raleigh - a real pleasure to work with.

              Comments about Squier FSR Bullet Mustang HH Electric Guitar:

              I have owned this guitar for a couple months now. I bought it because I bought a Fender Duo Sonic about 6 months ago, and I thought this would be a great backup guitar. Also because I dig Surf Green, and was curious how much difference in quality there would be between the Fender. So comparisons are inevitable. Surprisingly the Squier is comparing very favorably to the Fender. I prefer some of the features, such as the contoured body, and flatter 12" neck radius. The Fender does have a fatter neck, which I prefer. What really irritated me is the Squier had a near perfect setup out of the box. This irritated me, because the Fender appeared to have no setup done to it. Action at the nut is as low as it will go. Neck relief was at .6mm at the 12th fret. String height was set at 4/64" on the treble side, and 5/64th on the bass side. Precisely how I setup all my guitars. The intonation was also dead on for 5 strings. The low E was a little off, and when I moved the saddle back, the angle of the string lifted the saddle and introduced some buzz. I filed a slot in the bottom of the saddle to allow the string to pass through, and that solved that problem. I expect to polish the frets on any inexpensive guitar, but these frets were excessively rough like sand paper, and required some extra attention. While this guitar is an absolute joy to play, when I plug it in is where the Fender just kills it. The Squier sounds slightly muddy, and lacks string definition to my ear. I threw a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge position, that had been in another guitar for the last 18 years, and that greatly improved it, but it is just a darker sounding guitar than the Fender. I believe due to elements such as the Basswood body, and an over the top bridge, rather than string through. Overall I feel you do get a nicer guitar for 3 and half times the price, but I also feel the Squier is an exceptional value at the price point.

              Great looks, exclusive color. I'm disappointed that the frets were so rough. Not the ends. They were fine. I'm talking about the fret tops. Bending is almost impossible. Even after extensively polishing with 2 grits of 3M micro abrasive sheets and following up with NevRDull I restrung the guitar and there was little improvement.
              I'm either going to have to buy more fret working equipment/tools or have a pro do it and this is a BRAND NEW guitar. Strangely, the in-store model that was at the pedal testing section had frets like butter. I suspect the in-store tech dressed those.
              As far as good points go- the body finish is nice. Pots and tuners are nice. I did have to tighten the nuts on one or two tuners. The pickup cavity is generously fully routed for any pickup combination you may wish to add. I chose to add copper foil shielding over top of the black shielding print the factory used. Pickups are ok. Rather dark and dull sounding. Neck pickup is a touch brighter in tone than the bridge.
              I'm replacing my pickups ASAP. After new pups and a fret job, I could almost have bought a new VM Mustang.

                I'm usually not one to mess with lower end guitars. But I'm a big fan of the surf green, I saw the deal they had going on fo Black Friday and said why the heck not? I've spent some time playing it and it's what you would expect for the price, but not saying that as a bad thing. It will need a basic setup to your liking as most guitars do. The frets are rough when you do bends, some emery cloth will take care of that. There is very minimal finish on the neck, the stock pickups actually don't sound too bad and it has great sustain. I was surprised to see they used 500k Alpha branded pots in this too. This is definitely over the top quality for what they cost, don't underestimate this thing because it's a bullet. I really like this thing!
