I have a Squier Affinity Strat. Sure, most would consider it a piece of junk, but I just happen to love the thing. I'm so used to the feel of it that I couldn't imagine playing much else. However, I DO want to change it a little bit so that it follows me as I progress with my skills.
Does anyone know what to start out with so far as upgrading goes?

keep the neck. Replace electronics, maybe new nut? refretting? new tuners. A new paintjob will make a guitar seem newer to you. A brand new set of strings (this is a quick fix), new bridge? maybe floyd rose if you feel daring. How about something interesting like a built in effect or a killswitch. If you have a problem with the neck then a new neck off of warmoth (google it) will do.

new tuners, new pots, new nut, new saddles (graphtech?)
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

I play a lot, but I like blues, rock, metal, and if I practice enough I want to be able to do a more percussive style of playing, like Morello except more melodic. So basically blues, rock and metal. I'm currently learning voodoo child (slight return), I enjoy playing Icky thump, and I know some Metallica. I use heavy gauged picks, so probably thicker strings would be better.
