Versatile Strat Tone

The perfect first guitar! The Squier Bullet Strat with Tremolo HSS gives you the classic vibe of a Strat - a long-time favorite among guitarists of practically every genre. What you'll love about the Bullet Strat with Tremolo HSS, though, goes beyond its undeniable stage presence. This particular Strat is made for rocking. Rather than feature three single-coil pickups (a trademark of the Strat), it gives you the best of both worlds by featuring a humbucking pickup and two single-coils. That means you still have access to those timeless bright Strat tones by using the neck and middle pickups. But you can also flip the switch down to the humbucker when you want a little more low-end growl - perfect for palm-muted styles and all-out rocking. So you know, the HSS in the name denotes that humbucker-single-single configuration. It's a versatile setup you're going to dig.

You simply can't go wrong with a Strat - especially the Squier Bullet Strat with Tremolo HSS. The onboard tremolo gives way to great vibrato tones, so you can give your sound real color and personality when you open up and start soloing. There are also two tone controls onboard, so you'll be able to shape your sound however you see fit. And remember, Strats love to be plugged straight into a great tube amp, but they also sound unbelievable through an armory of effects pedals. However you decide to shift your sound in the future, you know you'll be ready with the Squier Bullet Strat with Tremolo HSS.

Affordable, practical, versatile, and - let's face it - great-looking, the Squier Bullet Strat with Tremolo HSS deserves to be slung over your shoulder!

Built So Well..

It was everything that I expected and more. Considering this is an inexpensive guitar, I didn't expect the pickups to sound great; 2 out of 3 isn't bad; I switched the humbucker. It was built so well and with precision that I barely had to set it up, straight out of the box. The tuning machines and tremolo also worked better than I expected. Compared to an affinity strat that I've had, the tremolo has a better design. From a craftsman standpoint, the cavities of the guitar seem to be routed nicely, and they took the time to lay down pickup shielding paint. It is also weighs less than I expected.

great guitar

for the price you cant beat the quality figure for a quality guitar such as this would go for a lot more. has beautiful clarity and sound an beautifully constructed would definitely consider someone who's money's tight an wants a quality instrument to buy this. you wont be disappointed. Glad i found sweet water web sight. will definitely use this again for guitar needs

Great deal!

Had to give this 5 stars. What a great guitar for so little money. I got mine new/used. Still had the clear film over the pick guard. Played it a bit at the store. I guess I got lucky and the neck was really straight, with a very slight relief bow, perfect. This is the least expensive guitar I've ever bought. Got it home, messed around with it a bit, then made some adjustments to the string heights and set the intonation. Plugged it directly into a mixing board and played it thru the studio monitors, no effects, no EQ, just dry. The monitors are flat, real time analyzed. The guitar had some really nice tones! Especially liked the bridge pickup or the bridge and middle pickup combo. Nice clear highs and warm sounding bottom. Couldn't help but notice the craftsmanship on this was near flawless. The action is nice too! The tuning machines are very stiff, got a torque wrench?, but it stays in tune really well even when using the tremolo. Springs were adjusted tight. Next I plugged it into a Vibro Champ amp. Mine has a ten inch Celestion speaker and I use it for recording, miking it live or using it for my own monitor on stage. Got the tubes powered up right on the edge where playing lightly is clean, and nailing the strings it does that tube thing. I call it my sweet spot and it was easy to get there with this guitar. I have a lot of guitars, and this one is really a nice guitar. I've paid tons more money for guitars, and some don't compare to this. As you can tell, I really like this guitar. It wouldnt be a good heavy metal shedder type guitar, but for classic rock, country, alternative rock or whatever it's great. Some will think of this as a beginner guitar, yes it would be a great guitar for beginner or student, but it's no toy. This is a good guitar for anyone at any skill level. I'll use mine mostly for jamming and recording or onstage too. It's fun to play, the action is good, has nice tones and looks good too, not to mention it seems really crafted well. If it's not the sound you really like, you can always upgrade the pick-ups too. I may split the coils on the humbucker and put a switch to go from dual to single coil soon. It's an easy mod to do. Anyway, I don't care that it's not a boutique or expensive made in USA model. I'll worry bout that after my first gold record, lol. It's all about making music. Good luck.

Squier Bullet Strat with Tremolo HSS - Brown Sunburst

I purchased this as a first electric, I have a classical and electric acoustic but wanted a electric and everything the other reviewers have said is true, this is a great quality manufactured piece, fender has really stepped up and built a real beauty, the action and sound are really versatile between the humbuckers and single coils it gives you a great choice of sounds. Pair this with a fender mustang amp and your off to the races!!. If you want a fantastic starter electric you cant go wrong.Mark G.

Absolutely Blown Away

I returned an expensive defective Epi and on recommendation of my sales rep (Bart), bought another guitar brand I never seen or held before. I was apprehensive but put total confidence and trust in him and it turned out to be what the Epi should have been and a heck of a lot more. With left over money, and because I stated I never played a Stratocaster in all my years, I added this Bullet to the invoice(originally as a joke). OMG WOW. The guitar is absolutely flawless. Like a few others I bought in the $100-$200 range, this one is beyond belief and has turned me ifrom a Gibson/Epi fan nto a Fender/Squier fan.. The finish is beautiful and totally flawless. Not one mark, ding, machine mark, or scratch anywhere and the wood grain is beautiful. The fretboard has no machine marks, the neck is perfectly straight and the frets are so level I kept lowering the bridge until I got 1/32" action. I told Bart this is the very first guitar I ever had to raise the action on so I can hear hammer-on's. It has a $1000 flawless finish and feel. The neck is less than 1 inch thick and very fast. The tuners are as good as the pickups. And the pickups sound good, especially the humbucker. Fender tech support said I could buy good Fender pickups (cheap) and a new pickguard(because of the large cut out for the humbucker) and have a nice Fender guitar. Note that the neck is raw wood with no finish.so it may get dirty over time. But that bare neck never has to be wiped down and your hand always slides effortlessly-never sticky like finished necks. The only "bad" thing I can say is that the frets are not polished, so when you bend strings you can feel roughness on some frets. I'll address that when I change the strings(it came with Fender 250L's-.009). Oh, one other thing, it was also missing the top strap hook. The hole was there but no thread marks. I called Fender tech support and they sent me a new set(they only come in pairs) and threw in a pair of Fender 250L (.009) strings. The hooks were different than the original one so I put both on.I don't use the whammy bar since it's not a locker and I'm quite sure it would knock the tuning out. It holds tune for days and only need a slight touch up periodically regardless how long it's played. Overall I give this guitar 5 stars times 10 because it is much better than $700 guitars I have bought. I've had this guitar for months now and every time I pick it up I still look at in awe. What a job Fender has done with Squier.
