My wife went to a yard sale today and got the number of a guy selling a couple of amps and a guitar. The guitar in particular is a Squier Stratocaster that he wants $200 for. I wasn't there, so I don't know what he did to it, but he told my wife he paid $200 for it and put an additional $200 worth of work into it. My wife took two pictures, but one of them is just of the headstock. However, the second picture shows the back of the guitar with the plate removed. There's a 9 volt battery in the back of it.

Any idea what he did to it? I'm not much of a modder, so I can't imagine what a 9 volt battery would do. Any modification that would make it worth the $200?

If it has a 9Volt battery in the back of it then he probably has EMG pickups for it. Look them up on google. Theyre really good pickups.

They are really good pickups if you like metal. Though there are less harsh EMG's out there. David Gilmour uses a EMG loaded Strat.

That might be it. I showed my wife a picture of an SSS strat, but she didn't remember what the pickups looked like. She said he also did something about the way you change the strings, but that's a little too vague to figure out.

So if he did put an EMG in the guitar, would it be worth $200 for the Squier? Should I give the guy a call, or just ignore it?

$200 of work into it? That's about how much a pair of EMGs cost anyway. Did she send u pics of the pickups?

*EDIT* y not, miht as well call and find out

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

It could also be a mids boost circuit, and maybe it has locking tuners. He probably said it was easier to change the strings with them
