    I just bought a Pedulla Thunderbass ET5, so I've got to sell a couple of my other basses before the credit card bill gets here!

    This Fender Squier Bullet Bass has been used for several years, mostly in my studio. Everything works fine and the sound is like the typical Fender P-bass. This will make a great starter bass for someone!

    Asking $100 plus shipping.

    For TalkBass members, I will include for FREE a cosmetically flawed, but otherwise A-OK, generic bass guitar case.

    I thought the bullets had mustang type pups?

    Any chance on knowing what year this is?

    The serial number starts with "E7", so I think that makes it 1987 for the production date. However, all I know for sure is that it was sometime in the 80's.

    I forgot to mention: This bass has a 34 inch scale (nut to bridge). Apparently, they also made a 30" one, but this isn't one of those.

    From what I've read, they started making Bullet Basses in 1984 using left over Mustang parts, then they switched to what you see in the pics.

    to clear the air, a fender bullet bass and a squier bullet bass by fender are two different machines. the fender bullet bass has mustang pickups, tele headstock, etc.
     
  9. Width at the nut? Also, would you consider any fx type trades?

    1-3/4" wide at nut
    2-1/2" wide at last fret (20)

    1/2" string spacing at nut
    2/3" string spacing at last fret

    I will consider trades, but I would very much prefer money because I am going to need it when the credit card bill arrives!

    Just to clear up the confusion. The original Bullet bass was American and was a scaled down precision style body with with mustang style pickups and a tele style neck. It was meant as a replacement for the mustang. They were available in 30" and 34" scale. Then they started making them in Japan under the Squire name with close to the same spec as the original. Once Fender Japan took over standard production of the Fender line during the move from Fullerton to Corona, Squire production was moved to Korea and the new Squire Bullet (which is a precision by all means) and squire II lines were introduced. To my recollection Korean Bullets were only available in 34" scale.

    Thanks for the history lesson, SneakyT.

    As of now, it looks like I'll be shipping out the Bullet to its new owner tomorrow and closing this thread. However, if something goes awry, I'll get back to you. :bassist:
