  • Squire Bullet Strat changed me

    My young son was trying out a Squier Bullet Strat in a store yesterday. It was going for CDN$130 (I am back in Canada guitar hunting). I played it and it blew me away. I loved it. I have a Custom Shop '60 Strat and while ABing the two guitars would reveal differences I can't help but feeling the Squier would hold it's own. I compared it to a $1000 Road Worn Strat in the store and it was not a huge distance behind it. My world has been turned upside down a little!

      I've had two. Both were incredibly decent guitars that I actually gigged with. One I gave away, and the other one my son has... so I guess I gave both of them away!

      This was a really decent ax, gave it to someone:

          Yeah, that was a really decent ax.

          I stripped the necks on both of those and refinished with deft gloss. Came out great. My son plays the black one all the time.

            I had a couple bullets back when they first came out, a pink and blue. I gave them both the GFS treatment and was really impressed with both of them. Sold them both during a gear purge. Really miss that blue one!

            Hmm.. I've been having BAD Strat GAS lately, maybe I'll do another one. I just wish I could find one with a maple neck!

                  btw, Wagdog, i've seen your video with a modded Bullet, and you ROCKED it. fantastic playing. I really wish you'd re-upload it to Youtube. and if you don't have it anymore, I do.

                        i've modded that one a fair amount. cream pastics, obviously. and stainless saddles. all from GFS. i also put in a Tusq nut, vintage Kluson-style tuners, and D Allen alnico pickups.

                        but it sounded pretty nice when it was all stock:

                              here's another video with a 100% stock Bullet. It's not the one in the photo...it was a sunburst with rosewood fretboard.
