im thinking about modding the crap out of my squier fat strat.

first off, is it worth it - that is, using a squier?

i think i want to go for blackouts - ahb-1s and an as-1
but another 'is it worth it' here. should i just go passive?

Get a new guitar, don't update a squier.
My Gear:
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Peavey Vypyr 30
DW Collector's 3 pc drums
Mapex Black panther snare
Sabian AAX/Zildjian K cymbals.

^ oi!

Its always worth it. Go onto seymour duncans website and listen to the blackout samples. If you like em, get em

What is your amp though? Most of your tone comes from there and you'd be better off getting a new amp if your current one is poo

I see the one in your sig now. Is that the one that came in a starter pack with the squier? If so that needs to be replaced now, what sort of music do you play? What is your budget?

its not so much me wanting a better guitar (well, i mean, it sort of is). its more of a 'gain knowledge experiment' kind of thing.

if i can get a pretty decent guitar in the process, well then im not complaining.

i would play it through other amps, one of which includes a marshall tsl100/1960a


at this point, it probably wont happen. i dont really know exactly what my budget is... maybe 250 or 300 au? just finding out atm

strip the pain, change the hardware, replace the pots, rewire the pickups, rewire everything, re paint... add switches?
