The body was made out of plywood and it was made in six colors: Black, Ice Blue Metallic, Red Metallic, Cobalt Blue Metallic, Orange, and Satin Silver.The Red and Orange bodies were made with black hardware; all other colors had chrome hardware. Most of the Squier Bullet Specials made in 2002 came with a special 20th Anniversary engraved neck plate.The logo on the headstock reads "Squier Bullet" with no mention of "Special".The humbucking pickups were really two single coil pickups with alnico rod magnets side-by-side.
All models in 1982 used the Fender "F" logo chrome tuners, made by Schaller in W.
This particular Squier Bullet model is also distinguished by the fact that it featured a two pickup configuration, (neck and bridge) instead of the usual three pickup, a Stratocaster style neck instead of a Telecaster style neck, one output through the pickguard, 2 knobs, (one volume, one tone)and a hard tail, top-load, six piece bridge. Squier introduced a new, Chinese-made version of the Bullet in 2007, sporting a built-in tremolo arm, rosewood fingerboard, and one of six body finishes (Pink, Arctic White, Daphne Blue, Fiesta Red, Brown Sunburst, or Black) with a single-ply white pickguard.
