Squier Bullet Mustang (HH) 6 String Electric Guitar
The Fender Mustang was made popular by alternative rock guitarists like Kurt Cobain back in the '90s, but its origins go way back to 1964.
And now more than half a decade after it was first introduced, the Mustang design is alive and well, and is represented in the entry-level market by the Squier Bullet Mustang.
This budget friendly version of the Mustang brings with it the same offset waist, short scale neck, and double cutaway profile, but with a more streamlined approach to its electronics.
