Alright ive been in the middle of a Squier Strat Rebuild. I have no experience with wiring so i was thinking of getting a prewired pickgaurd because i was gonna replace all the electronics. So i was wondering right now im on a budget, so would a prewired pickguard with these crappy pickups sound like a stock MIM set? I would be fine with that until i got money to get a nicer set.

Save up and get a mexi strat - the squier's aint that great if you can afford to get a better strat. It'd do better, i think.

iono what kind of GFS pickups they use on that thing. I HIGHLY recommend getting a pickguard, three pots, and three pickups of ur choice and wire them urself. that would be 100 times better than just buying it like that.

GFS makes decent pickups IMO. but don't confuse with the clearance section sets. cuz those aren't GFS, and they're crappy.

Yeah i knew the quality ones were the higher end ones but i was wondering if this would be at least somewhat decent to hold me over until i can get some better pickups.

that's a waste of money. cuz u'd be spending money on pickups, and just trying to sell the ones u swapped out. i really suggest getting the pickups that u'd play with right now.

Well heres the thing, i dont know crap about wiring and if i got a wired pickgaurd with the good pickups itd be 120 if i got one with the crap pickups itd be 30. The good pickups are 50 so id basically be paying 80 bucks for both down the road.

ya. for the long run, it's nice to know how to wire **** urself. if u buy wired pickguards, u'd have very limited variety of pickups. and if u get somebody else to wire it, u'd get ripped off. so yea. my $0.02
