I was looking at the squier hello kitty guitar to customize into a tom delonge strat. I was thinking about the bullet but its a really crappy wood and the kitty one has an agathis body so does anyone know if a standard fender pickguard would cover the hello kitty pickguard on the guitar?

Why not just buy a normal strat and fit a humbucker into the bridge, and wire the tome and volume pots (i think) together? manlier than modding a hello kitty lol

I love that guitar lol. There is no way that guitar is stock on those videos. I might buy it for the hell of it.

That video pretty well proves that a good guitarist will make anything sound awesome. I love the Hello Kitty Guitar, I want to buy one and put an EMG in it, with a Floyd Rose. I was going to stensil "Bad Kitty" across the body as well.

I tried one in a guitar store, and couldn't get any bass out of the humbucker. Even plugged into a DSL100 head with the bass up full, it still just sounded tinny. A bit of wiring, modified pots and a PUP swap would cure that though. It's one of the few guitars I've ever found that a high end tube amp couldn't drasticly improve the sound of.

I also hate the neck and tuners, like every affinity strat I pick up, but I have a feeling that Ibanez and strat necks are interchangable, I'm trying to picture it with a Wizard neck.

dang. that would be impressive...its prly the amp....dang...but a hello kitty would be pretty gay...but if you can shred and pull it off and not look mega gay go for it.

I have a hello kitty strat, just take the scratchplate off - A strat with a fixed bridge (huzzah) and a single humbucker! (double huzzah) - its a quality lo-fi punk axe. The tone is sweet, its very similar to my MIM Tele through my Marshall vs265r

^ That's crazy. I'd laugh so hard if I saw something like that in a store.

I'm sorry, am I the only person who watched that all the way through to where the clean tone is? Once he took of the distortion it sounded like arse, I don't know what he was playing it through but it had one hell of a disortion channel, the guitar itself sounded crap.

why not get a bullet? Less gay and its the same thing...

well it wouldn't be all gay if you got a black one (Which you can get) and removed the hello kitty pickguard... i don't think that one has pink neck markings either.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
