The original Fender Mustang, introduced in 1964, was designed as a ‘student’ guitar. However, it soon found favour as a serious instrument with many players from Kurt Cobain to Adrian Belew! This Bullet incarnation takes the famous offset body shape crafted from Basswood and ups the power with a pair of humbuckers, providing a big sound, and offers rock-solid tuning stability from a modern hardtail bridge. There is a comfy ‘C’ shape maple neck and 22 medium jumbo frets, making it easy to play. The Bullet Mustang has all the vibe of the original! The combination of playability and price make this great for anyone looking for their first guitar, and it’s well-suited to kids with their smaller hands.
Available in Black and Imperial Blue.

I concur with other reviewers that for a budget or 'entry level' guitar this is really rather decent. Sure the frets are a bit 'scrapey' sounding and would benefit from a polish. The pickups are not the greatest, a bit thin/weedy but not terribly so, they do an adequate job. The most impressive thing is that it's so playable straight out of the box. It would be ideal for a beginner. Hard to believe they can make them this good for such a low price. Back in my youth cheap guitars were generally horrendous in terms of playability and sound but not so now. I bought it to try out a short scale guitar and will probably upgrade most of the components eventually but there's no rush, I can certainly live with it as it is for now.
Amazing little guitar, bought it to try out a couple of custom/upgrade ideas. Light, basic, plays surprisingly well out of the box.
Excellent so far...
Unfortunately the guitar which I received had several quality issues and had to be returned. The service from the seller GAK was very good though.
