I'm new here, but I've been checking out these forums for a while. I have a few guitars, but the one I'm working on now is my 1994 Fender Korean Squier Strat. It's in really rough shape, but I like the way it looks, and I'm looking to make it a bit better. I'd like to put in some Tex Mex pickups, but I was wondering, is it worth it to put them in a korean squier, and if yes, would I NEED to change the bridge? I would really like to update it without spending a fortune, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot, and here's a pic of the guitar

Thanks for the reply, I think I'm going to go for the Tex Mex pickups, my Squier's in the shop right now, I brought it in because I screwed with the truss rod (I know, really stupid of me, don't judge me ). If it comes back alright I'll put the new pickups in soon enough.

And, yes, I have a SRV strat. To be fair though, it's not a great re-creation. My first guitar was a cheap strat made by some unknown company, and I was really wanting to customize it. It's sunburst, but not as yellow as SRV's guitar, which is one of the reasons it isn't a great replica. I don't play it very often because It's got really heavy strings and the stock pickups that it's got are horrible. I might turn my Squier into an SRV replica, the relic looks close enough to his, although I could add more, and with the Tex Mex pickups, I'll have close to his tone. Anyways, here's a pic of my SRV recreation, and yeah I know, it isn't a great replica, keep in mind I was younger when I made it, and it's a cheap guitar.




I've also got a Peavey International Series Predator that I picked up at a yard sale for 40$, I love the sound I get from this guitar. I think the wood body is custom too, because the pickguard doesn't fit that well on it, and I cant access the trem springs in the back (there's no cover or anything, just holes drilled through for re-stringing). Either way it's a pretty cool guitar, and for $40, I'm very happy. I might change the pickguard on it soon, but the sound is pretty good so I'm gonna leave the electronics as they are. Here's a pic:


Anyways, thanks for the responses!
