The Bullet Series is the definitive Squier beginner range. A starting point for many aspiring guitarists, this best-selling lineup is still going strong several years after its introduction. And you’ll find that many musicians started their musical journey with a Squier Bullet Stratocaster!
This limited edition FSR version boasts a stunning metallic purple finish - inspired by our resident Andertons TV presenter Danish Pete and his purple-liveried Tele!
Squier's Bullet Strat features a lightweight Poplar body that serves as a balanced tonal foundation for its trio of spanky single-coil pickups. The body is joined to a comfortable "C"-shaped Maple neck, which brings out plenty of upper mid-range bite and top-end vibrancy - giving notes a snappy and immediate response.
While affordable guitars are getting better, you'll still find that many will feature sticky gloss-finished necks. The Squier Bullet Stratocaster is an exception, with a smooth satin-finished neck that provides a fast and slippery feel that won't hinder your playing at all!
The iconic Fender Stratocaster has always been distinctive for its triple threat of single-coil pickups. The affordable Bullet Strat adheres to that classic formula, sporting a trio of Squier's Standard single-coils that have plenty of projection and dynamic range.
Use the 5-way pickup switch to isolate each pickup and access different combinations for a wide tonal palette. Further control is also provided via the master volume knob and tone controls.
