hey lads

I wanna play some much softer stuff (mostly blues) and my current main guitar (ESP LTD Alexi200) is geared towards my death metal playing side

basically im looking to buy something like a squier strat, stick some new pickups in it and give it a nice homemade paintjob

im looking for your opinion on what guitar i should get (keep it nice and cheap) and your fave pickups clean/soft overdrive bluesy stuff
