basically the problem is my strat (legend copy) is bust to hell, it needs a new neck and i havent a clue where to start.

what should i look at to get the right mesurements and how much is it going to cost me for a new neck and tuners etc.

i would like a maple neck with maple fingreboard, is it possible to save this old girl or am i better jsut buying a squire to noodle around on.

i only ask this as i really want the single coil sounds that my other guitars dont provide.

any help is appreciated.

You can buy a cheap neck but that is exactly what you are getting. A good neck will run you around $200-400. As far as measurements, if it's a true Strat they wil have the measurements. If not then you need to measure the neck pocket and the length. The decide on the shape of the wood and also the radius. Then you need to decide on which frets. If your guitar is valued below $400 I would just get a new guitar.

Your guitar is only worth 200 dollars (if that), so I would recommend getting a new Squier. It will be way less work/hassle and there's no chance of the guitar having tuning and tonation problems.

Exactly. Scrounge 300-400 greenbacks together and upgrade altogether.
