squiers are fine for modding and many do. the body isn't quite as thick as an american fender but that in no way affects teh pickups or anything else really.

it was my first guitar, i have it up in MN for when i am up there on vacation.

the body is thinner than MIM and MIA strats.

its a decent guitar but i would start out with a fender MIM. you can easily find them for$250, and honestly, they are better instruments. the trem blocks are bigger, you have a full thickness body, and its just better put together. also, there are more things that you wouldn't need to upgrade on a MIM that you may want to on a squier affinity strat.

squier does make nicer strats than the affinity line too.

just my $.02 and some food for thought.
