hello, well i have a guitar that cost me about 150 euros a copy of a stratocaster guitar, bad pickups, bad materials, the wood i think is fine but i dont know what type of wood is, i wanted to know if it is worth buying new pickups and all the stuff or not? what do you think

i also have an ibanez iceman ict700 but i wanted to do something with this old friend of mine

I'd probably invest in a mexi strat and then go abouts upgrading that. I don' think it is worth upgrading a strat copy unless it is some dangerous modding you plan on doing that involves drilling and whatnot.
I think it is not bad to customize your guitars. I used to do it a lot in the past. It's a good exercise if you got skills, and how else would you get experienced with all those custom things like special sounding pickups etc? It's also a good way to upgrade a low level guitar (for example changing noisy pickups or shield the interior).

Nowadays, however, I don't tweak my instruments a lot, just to achieve some small special things.

By the way, congratulations on the ICT700. It's good one!

Every guitar is worth customizing if you like to...
Have fun and play it

A lot!


Just have fun... especially with a copy... get it sounding just how you want it.., THEN put money into a MIM strat if you want...

Might find that you don't need to..
