Evenin' folks. I'm looking to upgade this guitar. So it doesn't, putting this gently, suck so much anymore. I got it as a gift and am too cheap to buy something better. So, got any suggestions?

those are all things you COULD do


Um painting and refreting cost over 150 bucks EACH. I wouldn't consider that cheap.

I considered replacing the pick ups and the electronics. The fretts are decent enough. Got any suggestions for pickups?

Yes, but that would just be me making a new guitar.

Jaycelle: I said things he COULD do. if he had tools already they defiently won't cost that much. And painting definetly doesn't cost that much.

TS: ultimate pup thread has lots of suggestions. For cheap, Dragonfire, GFS, and Iron Gear pups (in that order from least favorite to most favorite for me) have good pickups for under 50$ a pup. Dragonfire even has some for 20$

Hmm.. Which would be good for punk/hard rock?

if a general paint job costs over 150 to do yourself, you've done something VERY wrong.


if you're buying some super fancy flake paint and a ton of unnecessary equipment, it might go over it. but for one job you can do well under that.

Anyone have an opinion on the Dragonfire screamers? (Again, I play punk/little bit of metal/a tiny bit of pop)

Hmm.. I'm thinking of mixing a steamhammer on the bridge with a rolling mill on the neck. What's your opinion?

Should make for a few interesting moments after they're installed... Know where I would find these? (In Canada, preferably not ordering online)

set up and a set of gfs pickups. I don't think the rest worth it, just start saving up for a nicer guitar.

But I doubt TS knows how to paint a guitar himself.
