    MF had an open box (condition 3) one of these for $140 & free ship...so I bought it...prob won't arrive until late next week...but here is my question:
    It is called a Squier Limited Edition Pak in the description...doesn't say Bullet or Affinity on the headstock...and it's not that strange short scale model either according to the specs on MF site.
    Indonesia build, 25.5" scale, 22 frets, glossy Maple neck, 42mm nut width...
    I think it's a Bullet w/o a name...but current Bullets have "satin" necks...
    Anybody know for sure?

    It's a tremolo equipped Bullet - they don't put 'bullet' on the headstock anymore.....

    maple fretboard Bullets do have a semi-gloss neck.....

    The Short Scale pack was discontinued after 2017

    OK...that's what I thought :)
    BTW, my 2019 Bullet Tele FSR has a satin maple neck...maybe just for the FSR.
    IDK :)

    I remember another member seeing those in Europe, I think they were available there first. If I remember correctly they had seen them in a store there. Maybe someone else will remember the post name or who posted it.

    I always liked White Strats...I saw the Beach Boys in Detroit in 64' or 65' @ the old Ford Auditorium...Al's White Strat sounded great that night :) :)

    I've never seen a bullet with maple fretboard?
    Looks really good

    I think they pop up a few times a year...GC/MF sometimes do a "Fender Special Run (FSR) with Maples...especially that Butterscotch Tele FSR ...Strats are not very common tho...so you are correct there :)
