The iconic double cutaway body features sleek contours in exactly the right places, enabling a smooth playing-feel and easy access across the whole fingerboard.

The sleek "C" shaped neck sits effortlessly in your left hand while the 22 medium jumbo frets guarantee a smooth action for all manner of techniques, both rhythm and solo. With a versatile basswood body, warm-sounding maple neck, smooth laurel fingerboard, and stable vintage-inspired hardtail bridge, the Bullet Stratocaster features the ideal blend of reliable tuning and classic Stratocaster tones that you'll have heard on countless recordings. The Stratocaster has been found in every genre of music and is the ideal platform to explore your sound and creativity with a smooth and comfortable playing experience.

Classic Stratocaster Design

The Squier by Fender Bullet Stratocaster with Hard Tail features all the iconic design features of the Stratocaster family. As one of the first electric guitar designs, the Stratocaster is ingrained in the public's collective consciousness and has been found in the hands of countless players in all genres of music. The Bullet Stratocaster gives you a great-value entry point into the Fender family, and it features all the classic appointments which make the Stratocaster such a popular design. The fixed bridge enhances the guitar's stability and resonance, while the HSS pickup combination is an incredibly versatile setup and ideal for all sorts of sounds. Whatever your style or preferred genre of music, you'll find the right sound and a comfortable playing feel with a Stratocaster.

Quality Tonewoods & Comfortable Playing Feel

The Bullet Stratocaster is crafted with a basswood body; a versatile and lightweight tonewood chosen for its balanced frequency response. The body has contours in all the right places, helping you sit and stand comfortably with the instrument while enabling easy access to the whole length of the fingerboard. The neck is made of maple and topped with a laurel fingerboard. The neck has a comfortable "C"-shaped profile that sits easily in the left hand and gives a fast playing feel with the 9.5'' radius fingerboard. The body's double cutaway design is specially crafted to allow easy access to all 21 frets for high-range solo playing.

HSS Pickup Arrangement

The Bullet Stratocaster is loaded with a HSS (Humbucker, Single coil, Single coil) pickup configuration. This is an incredibly versatile setup and gives you the choice between dark and powerful humbucker tones alongside bright and nuanced single coil sounds. The pickups are wired to a 5-way switch which gives you 5 distinct tones to choose between, with biting bridge-position sounds, mellow neck-position tones, and all manner of in-between sounds which will instantly remind you of countless recordings. This pickup combination is incredibly versatile and partly the reason why the Stratocaster is often chosen as a session player's guitar, and by other artists in almost every genre of music. The HSS arrangement will allow you to play in many genres of music, from powerful rock sounds through to jazz, funk, country, pop, blues; the only limits are your imagination.

Stable Performance

The Bullet Stratocaster has a hard tail bridge, which means it is locked to the guitar and creates an inherently more stable platform. Along with the improved machine heads, this combination ensures you'll stay in tune for as long as possible during longer playing sessions; ideal for practicing, rehearsing and gigging.
