well i have a squier stratocaste the 150 bucks model and i love this guitar i started whith it about 3 years ago but i just palyd it and it really sounds like **** (havent had played it in like a year) so i was thinking about pimpin' my axe here is what i was thinking about:
1.-Fender® Vintage Noiseless Strat Pickup Set: 130 bucks
2.-Fender® American Standard Strat Tremolo System: 80 bucks
3.-fender tuners about 50 bucks
4.-and im a right handed but i want it to look like a lefy (like hendrix did) but i dont know how much are those necks any one knows?? (i want it to have the fender logo on it...
se theres gona be about 300 buck improvisation on a 150 dollar guitar
so here is my questions:
is it gonna sound good??

No, get a new guitar.


...or at least dont upgrade it so much, maybe only swap the pickups
Ibanez Xiphos XPT700
Laney VH100R
Epi Les Paul (SH-1 '59 neck, SH-11 custom custom bridge)
If you upgrade squiers, its just gonna be from an ugly duckling to another - slightly better ugly duckling.

Save your cash and get a new guitar.

I agree with those who are telling you to get a better guitar. Mod this later. If you screw it up now, you won't have anything to play on.
I spent about $150 modding my squire when I got bored of it. It still is kinda crappy, but I painted it, new pickguard (3 ply), used humbucker, new pots, new wires, new selector switch, new knob, and Dunlop straploks.

It's a good thing to bang around on, and what better way to pay dues to your first electric? But for your situation, get a new guitar.
