Go **** yourself, ya deconstructive ****. Only one word was spelled wrong!? Geez... Too many ****in ****s all over the internet.

Anyway, about the guitar. Get a new one. Trust me. It's more worth the price.

Demagio is a baseball player and spelled differently
Dimarzio is what I believe you mean, and yes they are great pickups and will change the sound of the guitar for the better. The playability of the axe will remain the same though

I know how it is to be broke. Trust me, making a fretless guitar out of discarded furniture winding your own pickups whose bobbins are made from scraps you find in the junkyard, wiring from a thrown-out radio . . . that's broke.

He's not even close to that.

it's just a backup guitar... if it stays in tune and doesnt have a warped neck just toss in some hotter pickups and i'm sure itll sound better.

and chad, you make "surplus" parts scrounging sound like a meth addiction

i have a stagg strat that my friend gave me put some bareknuckles and three cts 500 pots(for each pickup and it sounds ****ing awesome and they do play well just really timid weak sound... actually for the price they're incredible... i think my friend said he payed 135 for it and i paid him 20 bucks for it and then put over double the stock price in it on mods.

Also caught her playing fallout boy on my guitar, changed my strings and cleaned it the next day.

If it's a solid body with a straight neck and dressed frets, a proper set-up would do a world of wonder.

Replacing the PUs and ensuring the electronics have decent solders or maybe replacing the electronics would be beneficial. Some modders here have had good experiences with the inexpensive Guitar Fetish PUs and electronics.

Give it a new paint job while you're at it!
