TL;DR - Bullet Tele too easy to bend the neck out of tune and weak sounding pickups. Expected? Details: Been waiting for this to go on sale again after I had cancelled my order in December (because it was on backorder and the shipping date was getting into March... I don't need that kind of package tracking anxiety in my life). Anyway... I got it yesterday, did a normal set up and... I am a bit underwhelmed, honestly. Please help me rationalize my concerns. I have an Indio Tele (Monoprice) that I really like a lot. That's my only Tele (I know... working to correct that). The only reason I've been wanting the Squier is the neck because I have a Squier Bullet strat that I really like the neck on, considerably more than I like the neck on the Indio. I thought the Bullet Tele would be comparable to my strat. The neck is exactly what I expected (the nut is cut a hair too high but that's easy to fix, much easier than if it was too low). However... these are the two main "issues" (not real issues but at this time they are to me): The body is thinner than the full size so when I rest my forearm on it ever so slightly I bend the neck out of tune. Now, mind you, I am not a big guy, 165 lbs but still it's enough to where I could hear it... at first I thought it was the nut, tuners, saddles, etc... the usual tuning issues suspects. But I discovered it was me "leaning into it" too much. I obviously do the same with the Indio (and my other guitars) and have not experienced this issue. I already made sure the neck plate and the bolts are right and tightened correctly. I could, in all honesty, be mindful of it and just not lean into it as much but I am curious if any of you had the same experience. The second thing that is different is the pickups. They are just much weaker sounding compared to all my other guitars, most of which are just as budget-minded as this one. Pickup height is the same as on my Indio Tele. It is a very noticeable difference even compared to my other two Squiers. Is this expected of Squier Bullet or could it be just my copy is an exception? Cold solder joint? Anything I should check that is a common issue with these? Also, the volume pot sounds like it's linear so 1-3 is dead silent, 4-6 is a little change, and 7-10 is like 60% of the volume difference. Could these two be related - weak pickups and spastic volume control? And last, which does not really bother me but since I am already whining might as well... the curve of the body goes noticeably flat where the output jack is. And yes, the LPB stands for: L...Ice P...Blue B...Metallic but who cares, lol. I've read so many positive reviews and saw all of the "you are stupid if you don't get one" YouTube reviews for the Bullet that I have a feeling I either might have gotten a dud or I misinterpreted the reviews and set my expectations too high. I am not bashing Squier or the Bullet series; just trying to understand what I got. Thoughts, opinions, comments, insults, attacks, other normal internet forum stuff?
