Some, if not most, Fender Bullets - 81 to 83, USA built are really good except for the pickups; if you like weak single coils, then the pickups are yours. Mine is an '82, S-3 (Strat shape, 3 pickups). I replaced the pickguard along with all the pickups with DiMarzio velvets, the pots with new CTS, the 5-way switch, and the jack. The original MOTS pickguard is in a box should I ever decide to sell the guitar. The neck is from a Telecaster and is very comfortable. Hard-tail 6-saddle bridge. Find one if you can.
