I've stumbled on some guy who's selling an MIJ Fender Bullet for around 400 dollars.

Never heard of this particular model so I wanted to get some more insight from you guys here.

I've already got a pretty modern sounding guitar and am looking for something that'll be able to put out some garage, indie and post-rock tones.

Think this will do the job?

Here's a link the guitar: Fender Bullet

Person selling gave a clear picture of the head stock and the serial number gave me this:

Your guitar was made at the
Fuji-gen Plant (for Fender Japan), Japan
in the Year(s): 1984 - 1987

How do you guys think the bullet would compare to Jim Adkins Telecaster?

The telecaster's made in Indonesia, is a hollow body and has P-90's installed.

How big's the difference between a Japanese and an Indonesian made fender?

Thanks in advance!

Those Tele shaped Bullets have become mildly sought after, very cool guitars.

I had one for a couple years, a few years back. It was reasonably rough though I enjoyed it. I sold it to a guy that 'just had to have it'.

I used to have one of those. I believe that guitar is probably early 80's (as opposed to mid). The bridge is part of the pickguard. I think one of the necks on Junior Brown's "guitsteel" came from one of these. All iirc of course.
