The Squier FSR Bullet Mustang HH Electric Guitar is perfect for those who want a tonally flexible, gig-ready model that is delightfully affordable. The Mustang has long been the preserve of those on the alt-indie scene with noted users including Kurt Cobain, David Byrne, John Frusciante, Thurston Moore and Theresa Wayman to name but a few. Since its introduction in the '60s, the Mustang has inspired many players who have gone on to influence genres as diverse as pop and heavy metal.
Classic offset design
The FSR Bullet Mustang is shaped to the unique offset waist design, which allows the guitar to rest snugly against your body to establish a comfortable playing feel. Built using lightweight basswood, the Mustang boasts a confident mid-range energy with a subtle presence in the low-end and crisp highs. The gloss finish preserves the wood for as long as possible, allowing the paintwork to age gracefully over time.
Sturdy neck design
Fitted to the neck via a standard 4-bolt joint is a single-piece maple neck, which offers a generous 25-inch scale length for articulate and confident notes. Treated to a satin finish along the back of the neck, your fretting hand can glide along with ease. Shaped to the substantial yet manageable "C"-shape profile, the neck sits just right in the hand. Paired with the maple is a glorious Indian laurel fingerboard, which is home to 21 medium-jumbo frets that are adorned with white dot position inlays. The flattened 12-inch radius allows your fingers to sail through licks and riffs in a breezy fashion. The double-cutaway body rout allows your hand to reach the highest frets without anything to get in your way, affording ready access to each and every fret.
The FSR Bullet Mustang is home to a pair of standard humbuckers that are fitted in the neck and bridge positions. The fat and saturated tones offered by the pickups are the stuff of dreams, producing chunky yet articulate notes that are perfect for clean rhythm chops. Push this beauty through an overdrive pedal into your favourite amp and your grunge dreams will come true instantly. Control over your tone comes in the form of intuitive master volume and master tone pots, whilst a three-way pickup selector switch allows you to select either pickup independently or both simultaneously.
Don't let the affordable price tag fool you, the Squier FSR Bullet Mustang is kitted out with resilient hardware that makes this ideal for taking to the stage with. The body is home to a 6-saddle modern hardtail bridge, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to standard cast/sealed tuning machines, which dutifully uphold tuning integrity with precision.
