    These just got back in stock and as I thought, they now have Indian Laurel fingerboards. This one I played yesterday had a terrible looking fingerboard and they feel so cheap compared to rosewood. This one looks and feels worse than the one on my Bullet Mustang HH for some reason, not sure why. Really glad I got a 2017 model with the rosewood board, much nicer. But they are back in stock.

    I got one of these this spring with a 2017 serial number when it was still advertised as having a rosewood neck. I looked at the GC website today and they still have it listed with the rosewood neck. How is the Indian Laurel different? Maybe it doesn't matter if I can't tell?

    I just chatted with a rep from Guitar Center, she said they weren't getting any more in.

    Find a used 2017 model like I did. They are better made and have rosewood rather than the Indian Laurel. Got mine with nice upgrades for $250 and then got a free set of Fender locking tuners because one of the tuners broke off in shipping and the buyer covered the upgrade for me. Ive seen the used 2017s selling as low as $110 which is a steal.

    They're pretty hard to find around here.

    What the hell is Indian Laurel?

    What happened to Pao Fero, or however you spell the damn thing?

    When I heard that audio clip, I heard “Lou Costello.”

    Pau Ferro is the wood they use on Fenders. Cheap Squiers get the cheap Indian Laurel.

    Well, a used Surf Green FSR Bullet just showed up on GC's website, used but looks pristine for $109. We'll see how it looks when it arrives. Serial number is not easy to see in the pics but it looks like it might be a '17.

    It's pretty hard to tell with the only pic I could get off the website, I cropped and enlarged it and it looks like 17 to me. Anyone else?

    Its highly unlikely to be a new one. They just literally got back in stock a few weeks ago.

    Especially unlikely when it's marked used.

    Sent mine back, which was kind of a bummer as I sold my BSB to fund it. The entire neck was a mess, very rough. I'm not too picky about such things but this was BAD.

    I'm actually liking the little First Act 302 I found in a thrift store for $50 (included Taylor T-5 bag) more than either of the Bullets so no worries in the end..
