Would it be worth the time to paint my red Squier Affinity Strat to look like the Monterey Pop strat?
Or would it be a waste of a paint job since the guitar isn't that good?

I'd rather paint a cheap guitar, then potentially ruin a high quality instrument, so yes, I think an affinity strat would be a good choice for a paint job.

Meh it's up to your budget. YEARS ago I put a Seymour Duncan sh-8 Invader in a $150 ibanez and paid for it to be set up. Along with that I threw in some straplocks, and "custom" knobbies. Well over the price of the guitar, and it today sounds like crud through my Mesa. Though I'm not really sure why..

If your doing the work then no its not a waste. But if you were going to pay 2 or 3 hundred for the job then be different.

Yes, I am going to paint it myself.
So it wouldn't be a waste of time then because at the end of the day it's just a really good looking Squier?

Some sand paper and a couple of cans of paint cost what 20 bucks so not a bad investment. And its a step in the ladder of modding and building guitars, gotta start somewhere.
