You mean your Squier, right? Please tell me you aren't doing that to a Fender...

I don't really understand the question. Please explain what you are doing, why can't you use the old electrics and screws? Are you including pickups in the electricals category?

Strings cost next to nothing.

Wait.. what?

And I hope your not that ignorant that your not going to be taking off the strings and electricals when paint swirling.. Cause that'd just be the epitome of ... oh god.

I think a tremolo bridge with paint swirls on it would look pretty psychedelic.

That depends on what you're putting in it.

I'm not trying to be mean, but you're kinda wasting ours and your time here.

Tell us what you want to do. You can spend a lot of money replacing 'electricals'. Pickups can cost anywhere from 10 each to 200 each.

You need to be specific. If you don't know what you're talking about please go and read up on all of the individual parts of the guitar your destroying and make a decision based on what you want.

If you know nothing about it I doubt you'll be back soon because if you are back too quickly I doubt you've put a lot of time into it, if you do have somewhat of a clue please be SPECIFIC.

Thanks.

Just dunk the guitar in the paint, blow it off with a hair drier and rock on, nevermind about taking the strings and hardware off, just dunk and blow.


Being serious, you dont need to replace anything at all, you unscrew stuff, you paint the guitar, you screw everything back together. I think you need to do a little more research first, loads of educational videos on youtube about it.

If you don't know the basic workings of your guitar I can't see how this is going to end well. Everything on your guitar can be removed and replaced again. Don't forget to take the neck off the guitar before you turn it into a souvenir from the 1980s.

I don't want to cause offence, but TS really doesn't have a clue.

TS,

Don't listen to these haters. They're just jealous of your rad guitar. Everyone wants.to tell you how bad of an idea it is. Don't listen to them. Dont let the tards in the Pit stifle your creativity. Swirl that guitar and post pics so we can all be envious.

Now here's the Gods honest truth. Paint and water will not permanently damage your instrument. You just have to make sure the paint is dry before you plug it in.

If you have any more questions, don't ask the idiots in here. Its their mission in life to mislead you. Just send me a private message and I will be happy to offer you guidance.

Keep rockin'!

Telling him to learn more about his guitar before he starts doing work on it is not misleading him. We don't want him to ruin his guitar, that is why people suggest he gets someone else to do the work.

If he wants to do it then that is fine, but first he should get a good understanding of what he's doing, rather than jumping in completely blind.

How much would it cost to replace the components? Go look it up - pick out the parts you want to drop in it, write down individual costs, then add it all together

Haters? If you actually read the posts you'll see that TS is very vague and is asking about parts on a guitar as if there's a big factory in the sky where uniformed parts for all guitars in a one size fits all exists.

It's lacking in common sense and I've politely told him this and all you're doing is pampering to the idiocy of the post.

He needs to go and read up on the electricals. Feel free to ask away TS, but don't ignore the very advice that will improve your knowledge. Go and read up.

We need to know what guitar you have, how much money you want to spend, what your influences are, what guitarists you like, if you want to sound like someone exactly, somewhat like them, or in the same field, what amp you have, what configuration your guitar is etc. You need to research it. If you just want to chuck what was in it back in, then don't stupidly cut everything out like a butcher.

Beware of people willing to pander to your ignorance, they won't do you any good.

(I'm talking about that ^^^^ guy!)
