Squier Bullet Strat Black
Overview by GAK
Squier Bullet Series
The Squier Bullet collection is one of their most cost-effective series of guitars, offering classic Fender designs at an affordable price. It’s a great range for beginners to start learning guitar on models that are stylish and affordable, and you can’t find a better place to start than with the Squier Bullet series of iconic Stratocasters, Telecasters, and Mustangs.
The variety in this collection makes it easy for new starters to find a guitar that suits them. The Squier Bullet Stratocaster is a versatile guitar that lets you play in a variety of styles with its three single-coil pickups. The Squier Bullet Telecaster also has single-coil pickups and is especially suited to fans of indie and country music. The Squier Bullet Mustang has thick-sounding dual humbuckers which make it ideal for playing heavy rock as they’re better for overdrive and distortion. These are all available in a variety of bold, classic colours to suit your style.
If you’re looking for a great starter electric guitar at an affordable price from a trusted brand, then look no further. The Squier Bullet Stratocaster is made by Fender, probably the largest Electric Guitar manufacturer in the world. The Stratocaster model initially launched in 1954 and remained a staple for guitarists thereafter. It’s an extremely versatile, reliable and robust guitar that’s great for beginners at an affordable price.
The Squier Bullet Stratocaster has three single-coil pickups, and five-way switching, providing a number of tonal options that are great for almost any style of music. Other features include a basswood body, maple neck with a 21-fret rosewood fingerboard, and chrome hardware. The tremolo bridge allows you to pitch shift by using the whammy bar, which is great for beginners to experiment with, but this also means your guitar will get out of tune more often, so you could opt for a Hardtail guitar instead, such as the Squier Bullet Stratocaster Hardtail HSS Arctic White which has better tuning stability, and no tremolo.
For a slightly better guitar, but with everything you need to get started, try the Squier Affinity Stratocaster Pack HSS, Brown Sunburst, which includes a Squier Affinity Stratocaster in Brown Sunburst, Fender Frontman 15G Amp, cable, strap, picks, and free 30 day trial of Fender Play.
Designed for players seeking an affordable, stylish and versatile instrument, the Bullet Stratocaster sports the classic looks and tone that made the Strat® one of the most popular guitars of all time. Highlights include a thin and lightweight body, an easy-to-play “C”-shaped neck profile, three single-coil pickups with five-way switching for sonic variety and a tremolo bridge for expressive string-bending effects.
Dynamically responsive and clear-sounding, single-coil pickups provide crisp, rich tone.
This model features a thin body, which reduces weight and increases comfort.
Sealed die-cast tuning machines provide reliable tuning stability with smooth gear action.
