Buena para su precio

Si se compara con guitarras de alta gama encontramos detalles de terminación. No tiene problemas de afinación y tiene un buen sonido.

squier bullet tele black

I bought this guitar a month ago. Intonation is done quite easy. action is good. only 1st string side's top two frets are hung out a bit, no need to be filed. Metal ware seemed low quality, the chrome plating is so thin. I measured the distance of all the frets and compared to my '67 Strat, there is a little different of the distance especially the 4th and 5th fret, but the tone is fine. I love this guitar as the strings tension is in between of my Strat and my another Gibson SG, so it is good for practice. I have never played a maple neck before. Also it has a feel of John Lennon's Tele even his has a humbucker pickup. Because of its good price, I will keep this guitar and would recommend it to whom as beginner and for practice use.

Good bones

As others said this and other low end squier guitars will need a setup out of the box but once done it is a pretty good guitar, even better if you can grab one on sale. Mine has sharp fret ends on the bottom side, I would recommend you get an experienced guitar tech to file the ends, as it requires specialty files. The tuners do the job, although 2 dont have a smooth feel. The pickups are definitely useable, nice clear tone. Guitar weights just under 8lbs. The fit & finish is very good. Resonance on mine is very good too, its a keeper.

Squire Telecaster Bullet Guitar

Good value. Like many bargain guitars the finish is only satisfactory. Some issues with the frets being to long and surface left sharp but easy to fix. Guitar sounds good. Would recommend for a beginner.

So close, but so far.

I am very experienced with electric guitars, doing set ups, fret jobs, upgrades etc... This guitar has good bones: - A nice straight neck (vintage thick neck - no skunk stripe on the back) - A decent full sized body - Components are good, the tuners are fine, the pickups sound surprisingly good. The singly ply pick guard is a little soft, but is nice and thick. The controls are standard low cost components, but work flawlessly. The black paint-on logo and dots are a little cheap looking, but are not really problems. The amazingly obviously, eye rolling-ly flawed: The fret job that was done at the factory was nasty, with wood slivers and fret wire poking from the sides. Out of the box it is a tetanus hazard / cheese grater. I mean, it was just plain awful. I can't imagine a beginner getting one of these guitars - Best Buy might want to go back to the supplier / Fender to get these fixed - it is not part of set-up, it is a defect and in my mind is warranty work. It took me an hour of filing to bring it to playable. The only other complaint is that the nut is slightly off center which is typical for cheap guitars. So, based on the laceration factor, I can't recommend this for anyone but a skilled tinkerer - beginners would be better to go up to the Squier Standard, Custom Vibe, or Vintage Modified, or maybe over to one of the Epiphone offerings. I gave it three stars only because of the price and because there is a diamond hidden in the rough.

Not for everyone

Disappointed in the build quality! Every fret end needed filing to some extent. These fret ends were like little razors. Many loose screws that needed to be tightened. Action, intonation and neck relief were way out. I do have some experience in setting up guitars so i was able to remedy these issues with some time and effort, it now plays like it should. If you don't have experience in guitar set up you will not enjoy playing this guitar. I have purchased 2 Squire Bullet Strats previously and always felt they were well worth the money.
