The Telecaster is one of the most iconic instruments of the 20th century and has graced the albums and songs of some of the most notable music since its introduction over fifty years ago. The Squier brand has allowed Fender to produce a range of more affordable guitars using some of the components of their more expensive brethren.
The Squier Bullet Telecaster body is made from Poplar a highly resonant, soft tonewood. This will aid sustain and harmonics without being heavy and cumbersome. The neck like its more expensive cousins is made from Maple a sturdy tonewood ideal for smooth, silky playing. The fingerboard is made from the very popular Indian Laurel, very similar in looks to Rosewood but with a tighter grain and a little redder. The neck is "C" profiled and is among the most playable in the industry.

The nickel coated tuners provide excellent tuning stability and accuracy and the adjustable 6 saddle bridge can be customised to lower or raise the string height or to improve intonation. The knurled plastic knobs offer smooth control over volume and tone and 1 ply pickguard protects the body from unwanted nicks and scratches.
The Squier Bullet Telecaster provides a raw tone with its two single coil pickups. The bridge pickup is offset in classic Tele style and gives that sharp clear chicken picking tone and the neck pickup gives that snappy Tele sound.
The Squier Bullet Telecaster is a bargain at its price and has been a staple among beginners for decades. Its versatility and sound have been a draw to the likes of John 5 (Marylin Manson among others) and Matt Bellamy (Muse). The Squier Bullet Telecaster is an absolute steal at the price and can produce great sounds.
