I was just wondering how much Billie Joe armstrongs fernandez stratocaster would've originally cost when he got it, cause i know he installed seymour duncan humbuckers on it. I was just wondering if my guitar is good enough to have new pickups installed, or whether I should get a new guitar first. Btw I'm not REALLY interested on whether you like green day or not.

Yeah I only have a silverton strat copy. I really hate the sound I'm getting just It's gonna take me a long while to save up for a really decent guitar, so I was just wondering if it's worth me simply getting new pickups for the time being.

If your looking for the time being as in you'll only have enough money to buy pick-ups, and wont have money to buy a decent guitar for a long while then no don't buy pick-ups buy a new guitar. But if you mean time being as in your gonna get a job or some other form of money to buy a new guitar in like a year or so then yea. But really buy a new guitar.

Well even if I don't get pickups, I won't be able to get a decent guitar for a fair while anyway. But yeah I guess I might aswell save up as soon as I can. I just doubly hate my sound lol, cause I have a crap strat copy AND a Marshall MG amp (thats right).
The only thing that keeps me going is my BOSS ds-2
