Hey there,
So, I just wanted to know if I was to buy a Squier Bullet Strat or Affinity Fat Strat and put a YJM pickup in the neck and bridge position, if it would sound good for some heavier rock. If I get the Fat Strat, then I'll probably put a EMG 81 in the bridge and a YJM in the neck position. Also, I don't want any input like "get a better guitar" because I'm just kind of experimenting with pickup replacement.

of course it would sound better and heavier.

The affinity strats are very nice, or a standard strat with a pickup change and neck swap is IMO better than the mexican strats, which itself would need a pickup upgrade.

affinity strats are made of alder, although not the highest quality. it's up to you if you want to mod it. i'd rather buy a new guitar.

It would cost as much as a good guitar to do all that and come out with shyt.


Well, I like Fenders, but don't have enough money to get something like a MIM Strat. So, Squier is the next best thing. Also, I've played a MIM Strat compared to my Affinity Strat, and the Squier is basically the same (besides wood, which I could care less about) for less money.
