I got this Fender Bullet yesterday.It was made at the Fullerton Factory around 1981.It has an interesting design. The pickguard and bridge are made from one piece of painted aluminum.

Nice find! I have an '82 Bullet USA from the Fullerton factory. The only diff is mine has the Strat shaped body. Maple fretboard. Same pickguard with the built-in bridge. BTW, that aluminum is AIRCRAFT GRADE! It's the most simple but yet the most stable bridge of any guitar I have owned. If I break a string, the other 5 never go out of tune like most bridges.

These are very cool, and somewhat underappreciated guitars. John Page designed these BTW! Mine is a bit more "relic'd". I replaced the pickups with a Strat single coil in the neck and a Seymour-Duncan "Hotrails" humbucker in the bridge. The Hotrails is stacked so it fits in the single coil cavity. This has been my main gigging axe for nearly 4 years now! Enjoy! Love to see more USA Bullets around here!
