I bought this baby few weeks ago. It caught my sight with a humbucker on it's bridge, so I decided to try it out and it is simply mind blowing!
This baby is clean as a whistle while playing it clean and the distortion is pretty great too, especially for the humbucker pickup
It's not only great in its playability, but it also has a killer price. In a nutshell,this guitar is worth every pennies

I'm not a great player by any stretch, but I needed to get an electric for fun and to help me advance. i love accoustic, but ;) well, I got my bullet for such an incredibly affordable price it shocked me. A price for a used piece of junk would be higher. it's a beautiful guitar. Sounds fantastic. Any nuance you want. It plays hard. It plays soft. To say I would recommend this to someone is ridiculously understated. don't be a fool. buy this guitar. your wallet and you ...will be verrry glad you did. :) * NOT a paid spokesperson* ;)

I had received about £100 or so at christmas and I decided I wanted a new guitar. I had always wanted a stratocaster, made by either Squier or Fender (none of those super cheap rubbish ones) and so i began to browse the internet in search for one. I remembered that lots of my friends had Squier bullet strats, and i thought they were average at best. However, being 15 in a household that is strapped for cash, i decided to give it a go. By god i was surprised when this beauty came through the mail. Great tone, great feel and a great price! I play in a rock/metal band as Rhythm Guitarist and Singer, and I knew that i needed a humbucker pickup on the guitar, hence me buying this one. It gives a great sound, typical strat tone, the only drawback is that the humbucker can sound a bit too "bright" at times, however this problem was fixed, with copious amounts of distortion. Another great thing about the guitar is the durability of it, seeing as the band are quite energetic on stage, we have a tendency to bash guitars and drop them. It's happened twice already and there isn't a scratch. However, it can go out of tune quite easily if you're not careful.
Overall, this guitar is unbelievable value for money, and is a great buy for any style, any genre and anyone who just loves to play guitar.

I picked this guitar up when I decided it was time to get a better guitar than I had before. I played this a little, liked it a lot, and picked it up. The humbucker is really hot and awesome. I play rock, metal, punk, all kinds of stuff like that on it, and it really takes distortion well. Of course, you could also use it for any genre you could imagine. This is definitely not the BEST guitar in the world, but it is definitely worth your money. I would say if you're looking for a starter guitar, or a backup that you can bump around or, hell, even smash up (they're like $200, come on), then this is perfect! Thumbs up, Fender! (y) (y)
I picked this guitar up a little while ago as a guitar to leave at school and share with friends, but I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it feels. I got it $100 used at my local dealer, and it was worth every penny! It's covered in stickers right now (Might come off later and enjoy the plain guitar) and it's taken a pounding and hasn't even chipped the finish (Kind of sad, wanted it to get a little road worn). I don't know if it's all guitars or just mine, but the bridge humbucker is so hot that it can keep up with a full punk rock band no problem with some mild distortion from a pedal. It's not the best sound quality, but unless you're a serious gigger (I'm more of a just-for-fun kind of gigger that does single song shows) or a pro you don't really need the best quality sound from your go-to-when-you-don't-want-to-bring-a-nice-guitar guitar. It's comfy, and just amazing!
