Purchased from: Used

Sound — 10
I play punk mostly, the humbucker suits my stile very well, you can get a nice distortion with it and it sounds well on all the amps I played. I use my dad's boogie amp mostly and it sounds well with it, I will soon buy a Peavey bandit 112. I use no effects with it. It's a nit noisy because of the humbucker but it doesn't matter much to me. It has a pretty full sound and when you don't play on an amp it also sounds very well.

Overall Impression — 10
I love everything about it!

Reliability & Durability — 10
I did one gig with it and it did its job very good, maybe I'll put new tuners on it because these are non-locking. Maybe I'll put a semour duncan super distortion in it when I'm rich but everything is good now. I've putted straplocks on it but the original strap buttons weren't very bad. I can depend on it and I don't need beackup for this guitar. The finish is good, I dropped it and I have no scratches, only some on the pickgaurd.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
There wasn't anything wrong with it, and the action is good to.

My Bullet Special was made in 2003, in Indonesia. It has 21 medium jumbo frets and a rosewood fingerboard I guess, the neck is thin, I like that. I guess it has a laminated because that's what the other review says. It has a maple body. It's orange, I like that very much, it's also available in dark blue and metallic, it has a black pickgaurd. It' actually just a Strat but with one humbucker and one volume knob. It doesn't have a normal string-thru body bridge like a normal Strat, the strings don't go through the body. The humbucker is active. It only has one volume knob, you don't need more. Tuners are non-locking, that's the only bad thing about it. I bought it used so I got no accessories with it.
