Hey. My Squier vintage Strat still has the standard pickups on it. I've been thinking about trading this one in for an Epi SG400. Would it be worth it to keep the Squier and change the pickups(if so, which ones?), or just to buy the Epi SG?

They're totally different guitars, it's a matter of what suits you better, Mahogany, set neck and humbuckers or (I assume) Alder, bolt-on and single coils.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

Get some new pickups off guitarfetish.com and get a new amp!

Well, I play alot of metalcore, but I also need the versatility to be able to play light rock.

I personally love my Strat, but I also love Epi SG400s. So really its just a choice of which would sound better. Strat with new pickups or the Epi SG.

Again I say, the best pickups for the money are the ones on guitarfetish.com. Save yourself a little money, buy an amp that you don't loathe, then get the G-400. My only electric is a Tele and I play metal on it just fine.

I agree with Timi, the G-400 would suit what you play better than a Strat in general. But, replacing the pups in a squier isn't a bad thing. Actually it's pretty common. But why not address the amp issue first? If you don't like the sound/tones from it, changing guitars won't get you where you really want to go.

Well I know that I'm getting a new amp. I actually have my list here. I'm just trying to figure out approximately how much this whole thing is gunna cost me before I go out and blow the bank.

Got it. Sounds like a good plan.
