Can you link to the Bridge your thinking of installing, Google returned a few "vintage style trem bridges"

And are you sure its a hardtail, not just a normal squire trem? (Has the body been routed or is the current trem just screwed into the body?)

Sorry if i sound patronising =P

Ah yeah, The bullets are hardtails, so youve no need to worry about routing/drilling your guitar, Just make sure it lines up!

and you can replace it with any other hardtail with the same string spacing! =D

I think if you want to put in a tremolo bridge, you are going to have to modify your guitar. Because, correct me if I'm wrong, I believe you need to route your guitar to accept the tremolo block and other components. That said, I don't think Squier Bullets come with that type of routing.

No, It has to be another Hardtail mate, Which you can Tremolo with just that same,
Just make sure when buying your new bridge that you dont buy a Trem with a large block based on the bottom of it or a trem that comes with some large springs.

Just make sure whichever trem you want to buy says "Hardtail" in the description, and then come back and check it with the guys on this forum, just to make sure =]
