I was actually thinking the same thing. Is getting the pickups in as easy as getting them out?

It looks fine?

Opinions. Plain white on a white pearloid is pretty boring for me. I will also be having this guitar for a while, since the next major upgrade I'm doing is getting a new amp.

He said pickguard.

If you ahve some basic knowledge of electroncis and soldering and sutff, you're good to go with a guide.

However, a new amplifier will do more good than new pickups.

In speed versus emotional playing, i think of an M16 versus an M24. You can have 650 rounds per minute, or one round, one kill. Both should be in your arsenal.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.

Maybe I am misinformed, but the screws for the pickups look pretty solid on the pickguard.

Also, thanks for the other posts. This is probably the first topic/thread where I didn't have 10 posts saying save up.

No! The pickguard is that guitar's redeeming quality. It looks great with the white pearl pickguard on the white finish.

But if you must change it, put the shiny red pickguard on, not black.

It was the only task I would undertake...

Pretty easy. Well, not so bad to sand, but painting it can be a bitch.

you do know that pickups are mounted to the pickguard, right?

getting the pickups into the pickguard is as easy as getting them out, you shouldn't need to unsolder anything at all. just remember how everything came out, and put it back into the pickguard in the same order. pickguard on top, screw for adjusting height, then pickup with the screw connecting the 3. it's pretty easy.

you have to be the stupidest person on UG to screw up the sanding...
the only thing is wear gloves so you dont destroy your hands in the proccess, also i dont know about the one your getting but on my jagmaster the finish isnt that thick so it should be fairly easy to do the job.

Alright, just sanded off the Squier part, and it looks plenty better. Now, I think I will just sand the rest of it off and make a design on the headstock. Which design should I do?

Maple/maple neck.

I hate how rosewood looks with strats.

Buy a new guitar. you'll thank me later.


Agreed!


But since you have sanded the squier logo off, you could buy a Fender logo to replace it with. You could dye that fret board black to look like ebony. Paint the body a different color but leave the pearloid guard along. Remove all hardware, take lighter fluid and squirt on the body and light it. Let it burn off, cool effect maybe? Whatever you do I would not put much money into it. Just my opinion though....
#30
I don't think it looks that bad. My dad has a Fender Texas Special Strat that looks exactly like that, and it's pretty sexy.
#32
It looks better than Most Squiers you can get...Just get your girl friend/friends/ who ever to draw all over it or do it yourself :p
#34
Already I got my plans figured out. I will get a tortoise pickguard, sand the rest of the lettering on the headstock off, and paint the headstock. Now if I can just figure out how I should do the headstock. Any suggestions?
#35
Invest in some better pups... like, different colored and whatnot.

you could just buy the casing for them different colored.. but.. I vote just knew pups altogether.. squire stocks aren't all that.

If I'm gonna do that, I may as well just get a new guitar.

doodle psychadelic designs all over it with nail polish then set it on fire.

I mean hey, it's a Squier so you're not going to be losing much value. Take the opportunity to learn to do a new finish and go for it.

Not necessarily.

Maybe just a little less.. but still less.
