Gearank Recommendation

The Squier Bullet Strat appeared on our recommended list for Solidbody Electric Guitars Under $200 from August 2016 until April 2019.

Overview

The Stratocaster, AKA 'The Strat', is almost certainly the highest selling electric guitar design of all time having first been released in 1954.

The list of famous Stratocaster players is almost endless, but it includes some of the greatest of all time including Jimi Hendrix and Dave Gilmour from Pink Floyd

The Squier Bullet Strat is the lowest cost entry point into the world of Stratocasters but there is also a slightly higher spec'd version with a street price of $199.99 that you might like to check out called the Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster (SSS).

It's very hard to find one available in shops these days, so if you're looking for an alternative then check out our guide to Solidbody Electric Guitars Under $200.
