Squier Bullet Strat - Discontinued?

Post by Danley » Fri Jun 07, 2019 8:38 pm

No longer on Fender's website - Bullets were really conflated with the Affinity model of-late anyway, basically just an Affinity with characteristics of a different factory and a different width nut; sort of hard to justify having both, despite the slight (and nebulous) price gap. Guess the Bullet Mustang has the mantle.
King Buzzo: I love when people come up to me and say “Your guitar sound was better on Stoner Witch, when you used a Les Paul. “...I used a Fender Mustang reissue on that, dumbass!

Pics are gone from the Fender site - even if the page is still there? To think Andertons actually enjoyed these, so you'd think more random internet trolls would gobble them up: https://shop.fender.com/en-US/bullet-mu ... 20506.html

Wait for discounts.

The page is no longer linked from the shop, though: https://shop.fender.com/en-US/squier-el ... s/mustang/
At least I only see the Classic Vibe (might vary depending on what country you access it from, though, I suppose).
Also searching the site yields no results for me.

Shame about the Bullet Mustang, I've been putting off buying one for forever.

I have a bullet mustang and have to say it's and insanely good modding platform and fantastic value for the money. Has less things to fix on it than you'd expect. The only real must-do things on mine were a fret polish and the disaster of a nut. Surprisingly good pickups and quality electronics, and the blue sparkle body finish on mine was perfect.

If you're thinking about getting one, definitely grab it before they're gone. Wonder if anyone will have any blowout sales on them.
