Ok here's the deal. I saw a pretty sweet squier with a tremolo and all for only 150$ I thought about buying it, sand it down, repaint it, put new hardware, new floyd rose, etc etc. I just wonder if it worth it. Would you guys give it a go for this guitar?


also, there's this one for only 100$



So, should i grab the first one and customize it?

Buy th seconds pickguard. That's sweet. Then put it on the first, with the floyd, replace pups. And then that'd be sweet. I always wanted a mirror pickguard.

Also, I hate the first ones neck. Fenders are not meant to have the lefty headstocks on them.

I'd give the first one a go. Reverse headstock and Floyd style trem? Heck yes.

It's hard to talk to dead people

I'm just not a fan of the reverse headstock on a strat. However, on an Ibanez, or Jackson. That's a different story.
You know Jimi Hendrix stole the guitar smashing thing from Pete Townshend of The Who?
Jimi was opening for a The Who concert, on their American tour, and he smashed his guitar, after seeing Pete do it.
Useless but cool piece of information. Completely irellevent, but you Mentioned Jimi, so I talked about him.

Tony Iomi has a mirror pickguard on his guitar, which also has crosess on it too.

It's the same person for both? Sweet! I'd definately buy both then. I'd use the Squiers body(or whichever has nicer wood)
Then, put the mirror pickguard on, the normal neck on. It' be so sweet. Then you'd have 2.

On the lower-quality one(worst parts) I'd do some crazy neon design. Maybe even do a chakboard paint. I read that on a thread here a long time ago.

EDIT: @cedricsmods,
Jimi was also forced to have everything upside-down. so it really wasn't his choice.

The black one looks pretty sweet, if you are looking to mod though you could always just pick me some parts for the blue one to make it look cooler
#9
There both the same quality...pretty decent squiers to me.

anyway, i will change ALL the hardware for black ones on the first one and make a simple 1 humbucking guitar and repaint it in a nice flashy color and the second one(if i take it) i might just change the pickups in it and put a killswitch on it.


think its a good idea.

What's the matter with the first guitar as it is? The finish appears to look good.
Could probably use better pickups if they're stock.

If you want refinish and replace everything, why not find an ugly, old piece of crap?
#11
If it's only one,I'd get the second.But really,whichever one plays better.

Yeah, i'll buy the first one. Ive checked on the net and its a Squier Stagemaster. Got a hell lot of good reviews and has a real Floyd Rose in it. It has been discountinued in 2000 and costed pretty much the same price as a MIM strat or even more Some guys said they paid them around 700/800$ they were selling it for aounrd 300/350$ used. This guy said he got it from a bet with someone and dosen't even play guitar so he has no knowledge so that would explain the low price he is selling it and the short "selling a guitar" description, haha. Im sure when i'll change the pups and hardware in this babe, she's gonna scream!

Check it out a bit









its made of solid Alder body too.

You'd be better off spending a bit more and getting one of these:

I am fully aware of this. That was in reply to Timbit not liking the lefty headstock on the right handed strat. A right-handed guitar with a lefty headstock and a right handed guitar played flipped are both reverse headstocks in relation to the player. Besides looking different, it is more ergonomic.

depends what you want to do i think. if you want to do a paintjob i'd buy a decent kit - the hassle it will save you stripping paint is insane. if you want to change pickups and things - go for one of them - i say the blue one if the floyd is any good. although the black one is prettier
#29
Just buy it!, dont listen to others, this guitar will rock the hell out of a kit, just because of the extreme reverse headstock style, its just awsome.

Just to say, that if you buy this, Id envy you, though I have a MIA strat.

This is my opinion of course
Cheers!!!!!!!!!
