So I bought this squier tele a couple months ago and i'd like to know what you guy think would be cool to do to it. I know it's not the greatest guitar but i'm a bassist and i just got it to help my guitarist write. i'm not looking to spend big bucks, but would still like to hear all ideas. Here's a pic:

i would sya change your pickups, but to have a decent upgrade you would need to spend a bit. otherwise, as for comsmetiv stuff, you coul replace the headstock logo with a fender one ore something similar, you could repaint, not much else really, maybe change thepots and jack etc. buti highly doubt that that would make a lot of difference
#10
i thought about the logo thing but i have no idea how to do it

get a fender neck maybe? probably too mmuch and not really worth it huh. i think you should get the flame control plate and bridge and paint the guitar with hot rod flames.

i presume your still at school right? well be patient and wait until you go back and then print it off there, failing that, get your dad to take some of that paper into work (assuming he works in and office or similar) and print it of for you.

i think my friend has a laser printer, so i maight be able to use his. I was thinking about changing the tuners, but the tuners on it are surprisingly good. I bought this used at guitarcenter so i have no idea if anything's been changed.

you should get some hot rail humbuckers, then coil tap them so you could get some more versitlity out of it. plus they can be found pretty cheap online.

this may be a stupid question but being the bassist that i am i will ask neway. whats coil tap?
Look Left>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Left you idiot
#19
anybody?
Look Left>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Left you idiot
#20
when you can have the option to only use one coil of a humbucker. But dont get hotrails to use as a coil tapping pup, they are pretty good pups in themselves but just dont work as well as a real humbucker for coil tapping
#21
should i get hotrails for my tele?
Look Left>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Left you idiot
#22
Do you want it to sound like a Tele? Put a Hot Rails in the bridge then. If you want some versatility, get a medium-output humbucker in the bridge, and the Hot Rails in the neck. Look at Pure Tone pickups, they are dirt cheap, and definitely worth their money,

#23
put a hot rails in the bridge by all means, but it wont gove you a full single coil sound if you split it. If you do decide to split it, i would help if you have a push pull pot to activate it.
#24
i was also considering the fender custom shop texas specials. what do you think about them?
Look Left>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Left you idiot
#25
Damn expensive over here. Not sure about in the US though. Personally, I prefer heavier music, so I'm biased towards humbuckers

yeah i'd like humbuuckers too. I'm into rock and punk so i'm not sure what to do for pickups. i can get the texas' for $89.00 at musiciansfriend.com. I may visit my music store today to see my options there.
