I'm taking my 2005 Squier SE Special and (hopefully) turning it into a Dave Murray type monster. I'm keeping the stock mid pup and putting a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails in the bridge. I'm also putting a DiMarzio Heavy Blues 2 in the neck. So, what do you think?

Sorry a bit off topic but what is 250k pots? Sounds like something from Runescape.

Sweet, good luck with the mod. If you're trying to get his tone you may want to get a better amp first, I've got a Frontman and... well, I'm not impressed with it

What you're better off doing is getting a new guitar (maybe a Fender HSS Standard Strat) and a new amp (maybe a Blackheart or a Blackstar, I dunno, I forget which ones more suited). Your tone will be so much better, and to be honest, it would be a lot more worth it modding a decent Fender rather than one of the beginner models done by Squier.

This is it. However, if you cant afford a full on Fender, why not buy yourself a higher quality Squier. But the main thing is the amp. Frontman doesnt do Metal well at all, I know because thats the first amp i had for a really long time (my very first amp died in about 12 hours) and it did not do metal well. AT ALL. add to the fact that I had a cheapo Strat copy like yours and youve got some serious nastiness invading your ears.

Potentiometers. Variable Resistors. Google it.

On that note, if you're using HBs, you should use 500k. Just because your amp is messes it up doesn't mean you should mess it up for the next.

There's always the Peavey Windsor, which is, as far as I'm aware, a lot like a modded JCM800. Of course, get a different cab (an Avatar 2x12 runs about $500 inc. shipping) and a better set of tubes as soon as you can.
Current Gear:

My squier isn't working now, so I'm using a Hamer Diablo... a pretty nice guitar...

Also, they're potentiometers, not whatever you said...

The Peavey Windsor has been discontinued as of a few weeks ago TS can probably find the head used, though.

well, damn. There goes the Marshall on a budget. I heard marshall is putting out an entry level line of tube amps (MC series I think it was called? Either that or MA) soon enough though.

I was thinking a DSL100MLB Full stack just because everybody needs one... and the fact that Dave Murray uses one just makes it all the more attractive.... Just need to hunt for some discontinued poweramps!!!
