I bought a 06' Standard Sunburst Mexican Strat, I like the feel but I dont like the tone. I want to change the whole harness pots and pups, I can afford the Lindy Fralin Custom Harness because of my Summer job. The thing is my dad wont let me spend my money on it, even though I have enough saved to buy my school clothes as well. Any tips on what to say to convince him to let me spend my own money on this harness?

How many cars/golf clubs/plasma tv's/wives/other excesses does he have? Use that against him.
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?

I think the best way to convince parents is the whole "guitar is something I really love, it is creative and I have a passion for it" deal. Give him the whole speil on how guitar is something you love to persue, and it is something that satisifies your need for a creative outreach and a pathway to release stress and tension. If he doesn't buy that, then spend your money anyways.

tell him that the whole point of you working and getting paid is so that you can spend your own money. If he takes the incentive away from your job by not letting you spend your money , then whats the point of working?

off topic first of all: the thread is called "convincing my dad" and underneath it has your s/n "the master plan" get it? i thought it was funny


anywho, what worked for my dad was i told him that how my set up is now, i cannot acheive the tone i desire, and in order to do so, i need this guitar (my case). my dad, being interested, he asked what was different, and what not, and he let me buy a guitar.
possibly, if you do the same to your dad, you can buy your harness (or you can go behind his back and buy them)

Yea, because the tone on my strat is weak and brittle, I want a meatyer tone. Also he's going against what he said in the first place. I told him either I was going to save up for a MIA 62' Reissue and keep it stock, or buy this and fix it up with pups, nut and saddles, now that Im actually putting money into it, he wont let me spend it. Though what else would I need the extra money for? Use it on a girlfriend, dont have one, waste it on a game console, no thanks, buy crack cocaine???

Show him some SRV and tell him if you get the pups you'll sound like that.
