What’s the difference between this and other brand guitars?
The Squier brand is the entry-level for the Fender brand, possibly the most iconic electric guitar brand in the world. The Stratocaster shape is available from Fender from entry-level all the way up to collector level and is the choice of many professionals and guitar heroes like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton & Dave Gilmour.
If you want a slightly better guitar, consider the Squier Affinity series, which uses a poplar body and higher quality pickups. The series has great entry-level guitars at a slightly higher price point.
What is HSS?
HSS is the pickup configuration or the “microphones” that pick up the movement of the strings.
HSS means Humbucker, Single Coil, Single Coil. Humbucker means the pickup is quieter and more powerful, whereas single coils are valued for their clarity and expression.
Designed for players seeking an affordable, stylish and versatile instrument, the Bullet® Stratocaster® HSS 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, a humbucking bridge and single-coil neck and middle pickups with five-way switching for sonic variety, and a tremolo bridge for expressive string-bending effects.
The comfortable “C”-shaped neck profile of this instrument (the shape of the neck in cross-section) is sculpted to impart a vintage-style playing feel. The most prevalent neck profile shape, it’s remarkably comfortable and is ideal for all playing styles.
Great looking and extremely comfortable to play, a laurel fingerboard is a classic design element.
For fat, warm tone with balanced sound, this instrument features a humbucking pickup in the bridge position.
