This is not a Custom Shop Guitar. It isnt even a Classic Vibe or Affinity. But wowzers does this thing have a lot of potential. I bought this as a cheap guitar to leave at my girlfriend's place so I will always have something to practice on and this has ticked almost every box for me.

I put Harley Benton locking tuners on it right off the bat because I have 99 problems and complaining about Squier tuners will never be one. I feel I might have dodged some serious grievances in that regard.

Now, you wont believe me but these pickups are something of a hidden gem. They compare so well against my Fender Blacktop HH Strat pickups, but alas, they cannot be split without opening the tape of the pickups so I replaced them with Tonerider AlNiCo 4 humbuckers and rewired the entire thing with parts from where else, THOMANN!!

My point is, this thing is already great value out of the box (great for beginners), but it also serves as a formidable mod platform for more seasoned guitarists on a budget. My main complaint is that the frets were so unbelievably rough. Bending the strings sounded like opening the gate to an abandoned house. However, I fixed this in 30 minuted with some #1000 Goldo fret polishing rubber.

Sounds great!
blaurebell, 22.05.2019
I have small hands, so I always had problems with the regular size fretboard of my old guitar. I also didn't like the sound of that old strat because it was a cheap beginner guitar of much worse quality than any beginner instrument you can buy now (bought 20 years ago). I wasn't really expecting much from this super cheap Bullet Mustang either, but wow, I was blown away by the sound and playability of it! What a great little guitar! Doesn't have that toy feel of 3/4 guitars, but it's a much better fit for my small hands than a regular size fretboard. Best thing: killer sound, I love it!

Pros:
-Holds tune even with 9s.
-Great for small hands.
-Looks awesome, good finish on the body.
-No sharp edges on the fretboard (at least for my standards ;) )
-The humbuckers sound great!!! Thought I would replace them, but no, they will stay where they are!

Cons:
-It's a cheap guitar, so the electronics could be better. The pickup selector switch is unreliable and the pots a touch crackly. I'll be replacing those.
-Bridge, saddles and tuners could use some improvements too.
-The setup could be better too. Not unplayable, nice low action, but there is definitely room for improvement in the intonation department.
-It also made me feel stupid for not buying one of these earlier, haha.

Verdict: Great little guitar, fantastic for small hands, needs some TLC to make it even better. Great platform for modding I'd say.

Disappointing
Bobok Katzer, 13.05.2020
While I was not expecting a miracle from a guitar of this price, I had read many good reviews about the basic construction and performance of this particular Mustang. Mine arrived with every single fret sticking out from the neck, resulting in hours of work to file them down to a usable height. It does not stay in tune as is, and I am guessing will require a new nut, tuners and trees to fix that. Pickups are fine, and aside from the fret issue, the neck feels nice. For the money that will be spent upgrading this guitar, I'm not sure if it's worth the price. It seems like it's a lottery, and if you get a good one it's worth it. If you get one like mine, it's not. Buyer beware! Best to try it out in the shop instead of ordering it sight unseen.

Very nice guitar
kmrg, 24.03.2021
For that amount of money, is surprising what one can get! Arrived fast in excellent condition, no fret buzz, not sharp fret edges. Absolutely love the shape of the Mustang body. It's short scale and although it's not a lot smaller (24 inches instead of 25,5 inches) feels very nice and comfortable to play. Super light guitar, no issues with the finish (neck and body). I changed the strings after 8 months which had a tremendously positive impact on the sound.

Downsides: fretboard is dry and makes a wooden noise when you bend. I think it could be fixed with some oil.
