Seymour Duncan SSL-1 pickups are good. I also like Fender's 57/62's and Custom Shop 69's, especially if you can find a used Abby Ybarra set.

Thanks! I picked it up with some other stuff as part of a trade, but it should be worth somewhere between $500 - $600. I love Fender's MIJ stuff. Great attention to detail. If you replace the...

Strymon pedals are some of the best out there, regardless of being handmade or not. I had a Flint tremolo and reverb that I had to give up in a trade. Wish I still had it. Sounded as good if not...

Do you have a tuner? Boss TU tuner pedals are really handy. A looper is also nice to have if you want to lay down a rhythm and then practice playing over it. Up next for me would be a delay pedal. Or...

I had a Hughes and Kettner Tubemeister 36 a while ago. It looked really cool but I wasn't crazy about the tone. They are known for being very "hi-fi" sounding amps. To me the cleans and lightly...

That's definitely seafoam green. Surf green is typically much lighter than that. There's a lot of variance in both of those colors, especially with older and nitro finished guitars. But surf green is...

Those prices seem high to me but that could be because you're in Egypt. Used price for an EC-401VF here in the States is between $400 - $500, and a new EC-100S goes for less than $800.

But that...

+4 on the switch. Contact cleaner could help, but if you're handy with a soldering iron a new switch is only like $10 - $15. It's a quick and easy fix.

If I understand what you're asking, the answer is no. That raw, punchy power tube overdrive only happens at high volumes - when the preamp tubes AND the power tubes are being overdriven.

A lot of times you don't even need to crank the gain to hide string buzz. A slight buzz when playing acoustically might go away when you run the guitar through an amp, even on the clean channel. If...

You can try replacing the battery, but if anything a low battery would cause a weaker output, not a stronger feedback or static (at least in my experience).

If you went from full sound to no sound at all, that's probably not the battery in your guitar. You would most likely notice less output over time with a drained battery. It shouldn't just go dead...
