The Squier Bullet Stratocaster Tremolo HSS Electric Guitar offers the sophisticated style of the Strat at an affordable price. The Bullet allows beginners to embrace the guitar on an easy to play model to encourage their development, whilst more experienced players will marvel at the superb build quality for a model at this price. Differing from other models in the Bullet Strat range, a humbucker is fitted in the bridge position to produce a beefier output than that of a standard single-coil.
Classic Strat' body
The Squier Bullet Strat bears the sleek contours and elegant lines that we've all come to know and love. The combination of bevelled edges and cutaways are designed to establish a figure-hugging feel for every player, maximising playing comfort in the process. Built using lightweight and tonally versatile basswood, the Bullet Strat produces a confident mid-range energy whilst retaining a comfortable feel in the hands. The paintwork has been treated to a protective polyurethane coating to preserve it for as long as possible.
Supple maple neck
Fitted to the body using a 4-bolt standard joint is a sturdy maple neck, which is carved to the "C"-shape profile to create an accommodating feel as you play. The generous 25.5-inch scale length ensures that each note rings out with the utmost clarity and guarantees a uniform playing feel. Paired with the neck is a luxurious Indian laurel fingerboard, which is home to 21 medium-jumbo frets adorned with pearloid dot position inlays to guide your way. The 9.5-inch fingerboard radius creates a flatter surface for your fingers to fret chords on and makes it a breeze to cruise through licks and riffs. As with the body, the neck features a polyurethane finish that improves longevity to ensure that you can rock out for years to come.
The Squier Bullet Stratocaster is equipped with a pair of standard single-coil pickups fitted in the neck and middle positions, and a humbucker that occupies the bridge position. The single-coils offer a biting attack, with the neck position emphasising chunky, dense notes, whilst the middle take on a smoother output. The humbucker delivers an aggressive edge that is perfect for laying down chunky palm-muted riffs or cranking out articulate solos. Full control is afforded by a 5-way pickup selector switch and accompanying Master Volume, Neck Tone, and Middle Tone controls. Whatever style of music you are tackling, you can sculpt and shape your tone to suit.
The Squier Bullet Stratocaster HSS Tremolo is equipped with a 6-saddle vintage-style synchronized bridge, which enables you to deftly infuse your playing with subtle vibrato. The standard die-cast tuning machines uphold tuning integrity dutifully, whilst the single-ply white pickguard prevents unwanted nicks and chips from affecting the finish as you hit the strings. Squier have thought of everything when it comes to the Bullet Strat, and you are guaranteed years of enjoyment with this awesome model. Setup and strung with Fender USA 250L .009-gauge strings, you have everything needed to kick off your playing career.
