    I was missing my Bullet a little bit so I started looking around and found somewhat of a deal on one. $140 with free shipping on a new one. It’s a 2020 HT with the better tuners. I was trying to find a white one but couldn’t.
    It’s not all good news though. It arrived today, packed as new in the Squier box and everything but it has a big ol’ dent in it. I’m actually not to bothered by it, maybe a little but I really don’t feel like sending it back.

    Good looking guitar, congrats. I wouldn't worry to much about the dent.

    Consider it a head-start on that thing's future relic job that your playing will give it. :)

    I really like the hardtail Bullets, nice acquisition.

    Welcome back.

    Argh that would bug me big time. On the top, and quite large. I guess you contact them and see what they offer. They may give you a substantial discount for the damage, if you like the guitar otherwise.

    Clearly it's a sign from The Powers That Be, telling you to get some filler and white paint.

    The missing paint chip though ... reminds me of something, or somebody...

    Just fill it in with some black fingernail polish. You won't notice it when playing, 'cause it'll be covered by your arm. But, you should get a price reduction and a partial refund for the damage.
    Since the box is not dented that I can see, that must have already been there, and was not caused by the shipping carrier.

    I already took a black Sharpie to it. No big deal I guess. I’m going to call them and let them know about it tomorrow though. I’ll ask for some money back. Everything else seems ok... .. ok for a Bullet anyway.

    Trade the stock ceramics for some quality Alnicos, and it'll be a beaut!

    Depending on where you got it you could ask for a partial refund and get a snazzy strap for it, idk.
    Im the type that says that kind of stuff but is too lazy/not actually bothered enough to ever follow through

    I’m to lazy too. I’m not worried about it. It adds character.

  18. @FhPudd you didn't have to stay away just cause you didn't have a Squier.
    We accept all kinds of nincompoops without Squiers. :D
    Cheers, Barrie. ;)

    I’m king of the nincompoops !! Lol. Thanks Barrie !
    I already ended up flipping this Strat. Just something about it wasn’t right. I’ve had Bullets before and they seemed better than this one but maybe it’s just my bad memory or my imagination but I didn’t like it at all. Did Squier thin up the necks on these ?

    anyhow... I’m Squierless again
    Thanks everyone !
