Just got a new sea foam bullet for 120 bucks. I put a set of 11s on it and it sounds great. I was comparing the sounds to my Mexican Strat and the pick ups on the Squier have almost like a country twang. They definitely sound unique. My Mexican seems to produce much more bass like tones and the Squier has more of a high trebel twang. It isn’t necessarily a bad thing, I actually like the uniqueness of the sound. After I changed the strings and polished the fretboard a bit it feels and sounds great.
