Quick Question, i have some bucks to spare on guitars, should slap in some new Pickups on my squire strat and give it to a Luther to set it up or do i buy a new LTD EX 50? I Play rock and distorted sort of stuff but also slow melodious things too! I totally love the Explorer look but at same time my Start has some values with it :P
Is it worth fixing up the 10 year old second hand strat? Btw, the body is scratchless but the electronics are mess!
A 50 series LTD isn't going to really be an upgrade. I would keep playing the strat as it sits now and save up for something better. If you're looking at LTD's I wouldn't get anything less than a 400 series.
