The Fender Bullet was an electric guitar originally designed by John Page and manufactured and marketed by the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation. It was first introduced as a line of "student" guitars to replace the outgoing Mustang and Musicmaster models.

This is a version 2 of the Bullet line. This is redesigned from their version 1 line which featured a thinner Tele-style body. This model (that was produced from 1982-1983) features a stratocaster style body without the contours. Available in many pickup configurations, this model features three nice sounding single coil pick-ups. The neck profile is shockingly thin for a fender guitar. Those seeking a slim-taper profile will feel right at home when they pick this model up. 70's style tuners sit atop the tele shape headstock.

Condition-wise, this guitar is in great shape for its age. It has surface scratches on the body (especially the lower bout). Everthing else looks fresh on the guitar. This guitar comes in the original hardshel case and includes the original hangtags and paperwork.
