    Oops.. Nm. I jumped the gun. It's a bullet. God forbid I should take the time to look at the guitar before posting

    Not my kind of Strat but that doesn't come across as a bad deal for someone looking for that type of Strat.

    Even if they included the amp that's still a bit overpriced; for the guitar alone it would be more like $500 tops. Just because it is an old guitar doesn't mean it is a valuable guitar.

    Yeah I have no idea where that is? Up on the range somewhere? While its a really nice guitar, I'll take my am std all day long. I was just curious and jumped the gun. To be honest I thought the bullets were made by squire

    Some of the old Squier Bullets can be pretty sweet with a few mods. I may be biased tho as I have more then 1...


    Zzzzz... 87' MIK E7 Bullet...

    All blanket statements are wrong. :D

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but I have a Squier Bullet Tele that is a really nice guitar.

    Cool guitar. I remember the old ads. I would have sold my soul in Jr. High for that combo.

    Nice guitar but way overpriced. I used to have an S3, really liked it except the neck was too skinny.

    Yeah not true at all. I've owned a 1981 Fender USA bullet deluxe and then 1983 and 1984 SQ MIJ Squier bullets. They were all fantastic guitars especially the 83 H2

    Yeah, looks kinda cool actually... if it is priced lower, it would be more interesting though.

    It's one of the early bullets with the steel pickguard that is bent up to form part of the bridge, a friend of mine had one back in the day, he always regrets selling it, later bullets had a more standard approach to bridge design.
