ok so i have a "fender starcaster". thats right, a starcaster.
its basically a squier. i plan on making it a project guitar. i have already ordered a bill lawrence l500-xl, and it came in today.
could i just buy this and replace the bridge pickup with my l500-xl?

or would it be better for me to do all of the wiring and sheet myself, to learn?

well, i'd suggest doing it yourself, but when it's all put together nice and clean like that, don't wreck it!

just fiddle around with the parts that you'll be replacing, and learn from there. if you wanna start poking around in another are, go for it, but if it ain't broke, why fix it, right?

I resent that. My Affinity sounds as good and plays better than a SRV 'Number One' sig and a Fender California Series (I know; I've played both).

My meaningless opinions aside, you should diy. That way you can learn about how guitars work and stuff, and maybe even get good enough to charge people to have their guitars rewired.

I have a starcaster. Its not my favorite guitar but I have set it up well and it now plays great. I also put in a new GFS pickup set and it sounds good as well.
