Yeah, from personal experience it's worth saving the money and getting yourself a better guitar rather than trying to improve a "cheap" one,

If you are looking to learn about modding guitars, then go for it - just don't be buying top of the line gear. You don't want to be learning and experimenting on a high end guitar, that's for sure!

If you think you are going to make a good guitar, then you aren't likely to as you need to start with a better quality low end guitar.

Gold!

I assist in guitar class and encountered a Starcaster because the owner couldn't afford something better and didn't know to buy a better one. We ended up giving it a proper set-up, fret dress/level, and PU and electronics change from Guitar Fetish - GFS Fat PAT and PAF.

Through a friend's Hughes & Kettner TriAmp MK II and H&K CC 412 A/B 30, it slayed! The bridge had dark harmonics, quite bassy, and the neck was right on for high-gain and quite good. Pretty amazing results for ~$75 and some sweat.

Go for it!
