Fender Bullet B30 (1982)

Fender Bullet B30

Small but perfectly formed
Always keen to offer short scale models in their bass range, Fender introduced the Bullet in 1982. With its Tele-style headstock the Bullet is a visually much better proportioned bass than its Mustang and Musicmaster predecessors.
In true Fender fashion it makes use of earlier components like the Mustang down-sized split coil pickup and a pair of cylindrical amp knobs. The P-Bass style single ply white scratchplate makes this look like a real Fender design.
The Bullet was offered in two more versions, the B34 which was a full scale version and the B40 was given a 20th fret.
