VINTAGE 1981 FENDER BULLET TELECASTER WITH GIGBAG
The Fender Bullet originally designed by John Page and was first introduced to replace the outgoing Mustangs and Musicmasters.
he original bodies were designed to resemble a smaller and thinner version of the Telecaster. The necks were Telecaster necks. The dual pickups were Mustang pickups which were positioned like the Duo Sonic.
It comprised a single cutaway Telecaster-shaped body with a 21 fret rosewood neck and Telecaster-style headstock. It featured a metal pickguard-bridge combo painted white or black, with separate saddles for each string.
Both models had 2 single coil pickups with a three-way selector switch. The pickups were covered with a white or black plastic sheathing. The original Fender Bullet was only available in red (with a white or black pick guard) and off-white (cream).
This one has had the original pick guard chromed at some point. Its quite well done! Its also got a Duncan Quarter Pound pickup added in the middle position wit a switch, really enhancing the versatility. The knobs had also been swapped to match the chromed out look.
This is a rare US built instrument at an unreal price! Includes non original gigbag.
