It is killing me inside. I will not be able to upgrade my gear, but I can't play on the guitar because of the terrible neck. What do I do?

Sounds like you're pretty ****ed.

But... your sig says you're getting a MiM Strat soon, so... maybe not?

In any case, The Pit can't help you.

The Pit can't help many people, really...

Why do people ask The Pit for help?

play other guitars? Ask for a new one after helping around the house or b day or christmas?

No allowance for me, too expensive for Christmas or birthday present.

I have played the same squire for 3 years, no allowance. Fix yours. Get a nice squire for your b day, 200$ at most.

Why can't you get a job?
To be honest, I'm sure you have methods of getting money, you just refuse to resort to them because you don't feel like it.

i vote you change the feel of your guitar's neck by means of powertools. if you don't play it like it is, if you **** it up, you still won't play it.
I can't see the loss.

1. Go under a dark bridge.
2. Put on some fruity clothes (Or get naked).
3. Build a sign that says "BJs 10$"
4. Say "Hello handsome" to everyone you see.
5. Tell you'll do anything for 20$.
6. Have fun

I had this guy with an uncomfortable neck.

Turns out he hasn't wiped it in 2 years.

Try wiping it down, that'll make it feel good.

I learned on a crappy, no-name classical guitar with steel strings for two years that I got at a flea market for $20. Couldn't even hear the damn thing past 20 feet. Just consider yourself lucky you have something.

Look man, don't wank, I'm playing a guitar that would easily compete in a contest for the worst guitar in the world, I'm sure it's 10,000,000,000,...x worse than your guitar. So stop crying, act like a real man and play the damn thing, if you are something of a guitarist, you'll accept it, and if you upgrade, you are going to play a lot better, because of the better guitar.


So your assignment for the day is: go play the damn thing instead of wasting our time!

I've been playing on a Squier Strat for 4 years. just scallop the living hell out of it and it becomes a lot more comfy to play. Or sell all of your gear and get better used stuff at a pawn shop.

seriously though, why can't you get a job exactly? I've had a job since I was 12, and if you're younger than that, you shouldn't be on this forum.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.

Paper round.
Get one.

My paper round gets me £23 a week. AND some houses tip me on top of that. It'll take you a couple of months to be able to afford a decent guitar.

Why don't you play on your own neck?
