I'm planning to mod my fender MIM strat by replacing the 21 frets neck by a 24, replacing the vintage trem by an OFR or a kahler trem. And replacing the pickups with dimarzios or duncans to make it worth a vigier, suhr strat or showmaster that cost around $1500...

Do y'all think it's worth it on a MIM ?
I have a $450 budget for it... According to you, will it be enough to buy the pieces and have it done by a specialist ?

well you couldnt do a 24 fret neck unless you got a conversion from warmoth and that would get in the way of your neck pup so you could only have a bridge (and middle) if u wanted.

It would be worth it if you wanted to go VH-Ish and only use your bridge pup, id reccomend you just get a graphite nut or roller nut instead of getting a FR be cause it would be easier and it still would hold tune fairly well.

(you wouldnt be able to pull up w. a floyd anyways)

I would be a lot easier just to get a new guitar for such things, unless you really like the feel of the Fender. So just spend the money on a guitar that already has it, and you'll save yourself a lot of hassle.

So yeah.

and if you put a new neck on that guitar ud lose all of the feel that you liked about it anyway. just save up the cash for a new guitar.

however, a pickup swap would do wonders for your tone if u want to do that.

sir, i would like to inform you that you are now my favorite UGer. Not only did you use the word y'all, which is native to my homeland, but you correctly punctuated it using the apostrophe.

my teacher switched the hamer neck on his guitar for a strat neck and he's had to move the bridge back coz the scales longer so he's got a load of holes in his guitar now

I'm not sure why, though.
