Yeah i have a squier, and my friend told me that its better than normal squiers beacuse its made out of ash, the same in fenders (strats). So should i upgrade it? If so what should i go for?

^ no, go to guitar center and make them bring out a bunch of them from the back and play all of them they all dont suck. I have a standard series one and i can compare it to a fender mim because of the professional set up did on it they are really good as long as you can find the right one and you get it set up
GEAR:
Gibson Faded V (Dimarzio EVO(B) and GFS Hot Liverpool(N) coiltap in neck)

Strats are Alder.

depending what your budget is you may or ma not be better off upgrading the whole guitar or just the components.

They're alder, and many bodies are actually decent

Squire Affinitys are actually made of Alder and I have one that sounds absolutely magnificent. Its neck is really quite something. Sure you have to go to the guitar store and try out a few but its worth it in the money you save!

Yeah, strats are usually alder, but there seem to be the occasional basswood bodied guitars.
And btw, Fender uses alder too, they used to use swamp ash in the 50s.

Word! I love those Squier necks, they're faster than the Fenders, alot narrower and thinner...good stuff! If you get a nice Squier neck, keep it!
