Gearank Recommendation

The Squier Bullet Mustang was on our recommended list for Humbucker Equipped Solidbody Electric Guitars Under $200 from June 2020 until May 2021 when it was out-ranked by other guitars.

Overview

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.

If you're looking for a good entry-level short-scale electric guitar, then this is for you.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Cheap Beginner Electric Guitars Under $200.
