I am always thinking about modding my squier, but since i like the sound, i wouldn't modify the pups nor the electronics, FOR NOW. I would upgrade the bridge, the nut or the tuners, but, still, these three parts work ok. that's why i haven't modified it, and save the money so i can buy a whole new bass that has better woods, so that i can modify in a better base.

The important question, though, would be: what would you expect to get of any of the modifying possible? more sustain? brigther, warmer sound? is there anything that you don't like about your bass rigth now?

When you break a bass string, that snapping sound is the sound of six dollars going down the crapper.

Pickup series mod, out of phase, out of phase with series. Or filter switches, I did a .001 cap right from the pickup on my modded bronco for a low end cut, makes for a very nice tone, I also have a .1 cap on a switch made a high cut for vintage tones. both worked so nice I never touch my tone control, just keep it on bright.

Really though, series is probably the best mod. Pickups won't do much really comparatively, those squiers have nice pickups.

I say Askere's suggestions are good if you just want to experiment. Other than that, mods should be based on either aesthetics or utility: play it until you find what part of the bass is less than ideal, then mod that; continue to play until another imperfection becomes apparent and mod that; etc. Get a better nut if intonation can't be set properly by the bridge alone, get better tuners if it's going out of tune often, get a new pup if you hate the sound, but only do any of those things if they're fixing a problem you have.

If there's nothing you hate about playing the instrument, go for some cosmetic mods.

oh, and the obligatory strap locks. Strap locks are always worth it on every new bass.

Yea bridge is least of your worries.

And don't forget strap locks can be made for less than a $1 by going to home depot and getting big washers with little holes, work with existing strap screws. Also comes with enough for like 2-4 guitars. Granted you can't remove the strap like with straplocks in a hurry.
