Today, when I took my new Black Squier Strat HSS out of the box, I immediately noticed that it felt lighter. So, I put it on the scale & it weighed 6.0 pounds. I then put my older Brown Sunburst HSS on the scale & it read 7.8 pounds. I plugged the new guitar into the amp, set the volume to the same level as the older one, & noticed that the humbucking pickup did not sound as "fat" or loud as the old one. I think they are now using cheaper potentiometers. On a positive note, the new HSS pickups are quieter than the old ones with virtually no humming. Looking at the pickup covers, the new ones have some small holes on the covers (probably to allow a tool to grip it during installation). Not to nit-pick, but there was also a drop of solder that had fallen onto the pickguard & a bit on the side of one of the tone knobs. At least the pickguard had clear plastic over it, so the solder came off when I removed the plastic. However, it remains on the tone knob. The volume knob & both tone knobs do not turn as smoothly as the older ones. The older HSS knobs had a nice smooth feel to them when turned. The knobs, on the new one, do not glide as smoothly & generally have a cheap feel to them when turned.
It's interesting to note that the newer Squier HSS (at least this one) is made in Indonesia & the ones from 2012 were made in China. Several years ago, much of the guitars being made in Asia were coming from Indonesia & South Korea. These days, it's usually China. And in general, I have found that the older Indonesian made guitars (Fender, Epiphone, & Yamaha) were of a higher quality. But such is not the case here, and I can only conclude that Fender (Squier) has made a cost-cutting move & are now using cheaper materials. Even my Fender Starcaster guitar (from 2010) has a higher quality feel to it than this new HSS. Being a fairly small person (154 pounds), I liked the Starcaster & Bullet Strats because of their slightly smaller size & weight (compared to the standard models). But I'm afraid the new ones are just a little too light & feel a bit too cheap. Although still a good student guitar, I have to say that they are just not the fantastic bargains that they used to be. You are no longer getting more than what you paid for. 3 Stars for the new ones, 4.5 for the old ones.
Only reason for 4/5 stars is a tiny little imperfection in the pick guard, smaller than the size of an eraser, and only noticeable up close and from a certain angle - too insignificant to warrant the hassle of returning.
Edited to add photos and the HSS bit.
EDIT: removed a star because after practicing with it in a room with different lighting I discovered a very small and long crack that wraps around from the front of the body to the where it meets the neck, then continues to wrap around to the back. I'm very careful when handling any musical instrument, so either this happened with very gentle handling or it was there when I unwrapped it and didn't notice because of the lighting. The crack hasn't spread any further in the last month since discovery, so that's good, but it shouldn't be there in the first place either.
I'm glad I am not saying this on a the strat or tele forum or I would get flamed. I have been leaving my expensive guitars at home for years and gigging with Squiers. I used to sand the Squier name off and play with a blank headstock. I don't even do that anymore. I love it when musicians ask me if it really is a Squier when I walk off stage for a break.
Let me explain why I love the Squier Bullet Strats. My first strat was a 1965 Fender strat and I have played it to death since 1970. I have always tried to find a strat that came close to feel and weight and sound of my 1965. Those were made from basswood, I think, and are feather weight.
None of the Fender strats over the years have compared to my 65. Fender changed the neck shape, the body thickness and size etc. The first time I picked up a Squier strat was just for kicks at a local guitar center 4 or 5 years ago just to see how crappy it was.....BIG SURPRISE. It was the first time a strat felt like my pride and joy 1965.
I have been using Squiers ever since. Sometimes I play them stock. Sometimes I will switch in my good pickguard that has high quality pickups. I tend to change the nut to a graph tech nut. Strat tone that we all know. I know how to work on guitars so these cheap instruments work for me..... I consider them a tool like a mechanic would his wrench. I have no emotional connection to these guitars, they are cheap workhorses for me. Love'm.
My latest Squier Bullet has seen almost 2 months of rehearsals and gigs STOCK. This evening I put a Graph Tech nut on it. I play it strung with .10s or .11s tuned 1/2 step down. No issues with the neck bowing under tension with the heavier strings...the trussrod works.
.11s require an additional spring on the trem. That's it. I'll probably be buying a couple more this year as I sell off some gear.
