well i just joined a band for the first time after almost 2 years of playing and with my amp cranked i get this really high pitched screech sound
i would imagine its the **** pickups in my **** guitar
so i was wondering if putting a dimebucker in the bridge would make it stop (+ sound way better) or would i have to get a new neck pickup too?

Just get a better guitar. You won't notice any difference putting a dimebucker in a squier.

i know i need a new guitar but its not going to happen for a few months so in the meantime i plan on putting new pickups in it

the dimebucker is a humbucker

and i have a peavey transfex pro

im pretty sure its the pickups cause ill go in the other room away from the tv and stuff like that and it quits screeching, apart from the noise it makes when not playing, but thats just cause i need a noise gate

If the amps the worst thing, new amp, if the guitar's the worst thing, new guitar, if they both suck get a standable guitar and a standable amp (if you're low on budget something like a yamaha pacifica and a fender champion)

ok maybe you missed what im asking
will changing the pickups in my guitar (THAT WILL PICK UP LESS UNWANTED SIGNALS) make the screeching sound stop?, i dont care about the fuzz all amps get when not playing cause its easily fixed

That's like putting a polluted water in a cracked glass. Neither of them are any good, nor do they mix.

maybe its feedback. is your guitar jack loose? and what squier model is it?

well thats what it sounds like so i figured its picking up too many signals in the room so i figure changing to more reliable pickups will help

i played dave mustaine's sig guitar through this exact amp and didnt hear hardly anything

edit: right now all i am looking for is an alternative to make my guitar a little better without spending too much until i get a new guitar

Microphonics. Cheap pickups. Better pickups would reduce this but when your using alot of gain things do get noisy. Look into getting a noise supressor as well.

If you do Dimebag whammy action with a Squier you are liable to break the guitar

thats 2 things i was gonna do
so if i get a dimebucker it should stop some, then when i get a noise gate it should be gone almost completely, then i also have an awesome sounding guitar as well

Dimebuckers suck.

Get a Bill Lawrence X-500L (I think that's it, someone correct me if I'mwrong).

They're the pickups that Dime actually used most of the time.

Yeah, but Dimebag also used ten trillion dollars of an amp of the Gods, potentially higher quality equipment (Since mass production obviously deteriorates quality), and pedals that could make us **** ourselves.

Just because so and so used them doesn't mean they'll sound the same as when he used them. That's why buying signature axes or pickups is rarely the smartest move.
