I actually received this guitar a few days ago. And because it's a Squire I didn't really even think about posting about it here...but you know what? - This is actually a pretty sweet guitar! It's a Bullet - so it has a fixed bridge.
I bought the guitar because it was a Strat, it was cheap, and because I had some other parts laying around the house and I figured I could use them to upgrade this guitar.
I have some vintage style tuners laying around that I bought for a cheap Tele I have...but for some reason they didn't fit the Tele - I thought I would use them on the Squire. But no!...not because they don't fit, but because I really like the Squire tuners. Very nice.
There is no fret sprout, although I plan on smoothing the fret ends. I figure I'll condition the neck and fret board a bit to give it a more "upscale" feel.
But the guitar is light, sounds more open and "straty" than my American Strat, and is fun to play. I'm quite impressed with this "cheap" guitar!
