    Hey Jim, so happy with it, quality is amazing. I’m going to change up a few bits as money allows. Is yours standard or have you done anything with it

    I love the bullet as it has the string through body and it’s made in Indonesia

    Anyone changed the tuners, I was looking at some locking ones, don’t fancy putting extra holes in, any suggestions that use the same holes

    My only changes have been to the wiring. I added a push-pull pot to put the two pickups in series, and another one to make them out of phase. Neither is necessary, I was just experimenting. I'm fine with all the stock parts. The pickups sound really good.

    Welcome to S-T @Hendo76 :) My 1st Tele was a Bullet. Like a dummy I sold it. It's one of a few guitars I wish I had back o_O

    Hello Hendo, welcome to ST. I've read so many great things about the Bullet Teles, glad you're enjoying yours.

    I didn't think you ever got sun in Middleborough :p

    Welcome. I think you'll need to ream the headstock holes to 10 mm. Someone will correct me if I'm mistaken.

    My 2019 Bullet came from the factory with 10mm 2-pin tuners.

    @Hendo76, I replaced mine, but not with lockers. Direct-fit replacement tuners for these Squiers are rare.

    Hipshot locking tuners are nice and dropped in to my Bullet Tele without any new holes or reaming. They were $48 from Amazon here in the US.
