Ok...
So I just bought brand new from a shop called chickenfeed (i think its only in Tasmania):
Strat Copy
10 Watt amp
tuner
strap
carry bag
2 sets of strings
stand
picks
oh, and headphones for the amp

all this.. for AU$150
guess what... it sounds and plays like crap. what should i do to it? and i don't mean destroy it, i mean pimp the hell out of it.

Return it? You should find out if it's plywood or what body wood. Only certain types are actually worth REALLY upgrading.

Those guitars aren't worth the plywood they're made from.

k. play it on stage. and at the end, set it alight, then smash it up. the audience wont care how **** u are as long as u do something outrageous

play a show with it. Then light it on fire and smash it to pieces. The audience wouldn't care how sh*t it sonded as long as you go way over the top
A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music.
Put this in your signature if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music

Thats actually a damn good idea, but... naa. It'd be good to repaint it actually because I've never repainted a guitar before so if i **** it up it wont matter.

also, whats a d?

WAIT!!! I created the Plaidocaster from a similar POS (click sig). I feel that it needs a counterpart. So for Christ's sake make a Paisleycaster or a Polkakdotocaster or something.

-Ibanez Iceman Bass (Sunburst)
-Nonack Special Mk. II (Blood Red Mahogany/ Natural Binding)
-Fretless Soundgear (Color Shift Purple/Blue/Red/Orange)

I think they're referring to Dimarzio pickups when they say "d's". Maybe not though.

I'm also going to watch this thread because I too have a cheap strat lying about that I never play
