I have one that I might be able to get very cheaply, like 40 bux or whatever.

I'd really like to try a strat or tele and use it more than my ibanez metal contraption. Can I get amazing sound out of it? If I replaced everything I needed to that is... pickups, nut, tuners, tremolo (maybe?), and anything else you might help me think of?

If so, I don;t want to spend an insane amount of money either... I just want a great sounding axe that will give me dirty amazing neckish cleans like Radiohead or something.

Depends on what kind of Squire it is.

If it is a standard and anything ↑, Yes

If it is an affinity or on of those "Stop Dreaming, Start Playing" squiers, forget about it.

Can you make it sound amazing? Yes.

Is it worth it to upgrade a Squier? No.

For the price of new pickups, and a new bridge, you're better off looking else where.

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

A buddy of mine has a Squier Strat that I think plays just as well as my US Fender Strat. I think his was around $300 new, so it was one of the higher end Squiers. I don't know if the same would apply to their low end guitars, but for $40 I say grab it anyways.

Ditto.

I would do it for the fun of it anyway. Make the best squier ever! Woohoo!
