Yeah! The non-plywood ones are usually $150 or more. They're also a good base for modding. For $30 you can't go wrong.

to be honest tho i really dont mind it being a squire


i mean its alder, the neck is good (maybe upgrade to a fender tho) and im gonna be replacing alot of the hard ware so it basicly doesnt matter if its a squire

Well if I was you I would'nt spend loads of money on modding it.

What I would do is put together a mass of hardware that I got for very cheap on it, to turn it into a super low-end frankenstrat.

Then again, I'm pretty broke to begin with...

well think of it this way

basicly im buying an alder strat body for $30 it just so happens to come with all the hardware.

idk how to explain it really but why spend like over $100(warmoth) for an alder star body when i can get a fully functioning guitar that i can upgrade for $30

When you change the neck, that'd be a good time to repaint it if you want to.

If it's one of those red Squiers, I'd repaint it something funky like teal and get a yellow pickguard.

I have a squier still, cuz im freaking poor, but still mine plays like a dream and i got it for around $150. if u can get one in mint condition for 30 bucks go for it. one bit of advice is really take ur time wrapping strings and it will sound WAAAY better and the strings wont break very often. I used to wrap em fast and careless and i broke 1 a week and they never stayed in tune. now i take my time and they sound great, never break, and stay in tune for weeks on end.
