I have an Austin Standard Strat knockoff. its a hunk of shit and i replaced it already with an epiphone les paul standard. Instead of throwing it away is it worth putting some decent pickups in there? I have a Marshall Valvestate 65r ( old one not the new digital version) Oh and the guitar is made of hardwood.

Hah, SG Rocker's sig sums this up perfectly. Your money is best spent on a new strat down the road.

I've got the SAME guitar dude... I know it's a hunk of shit, but it was my first guitar so I love it to death.
In my opinion, always get a really good amp before trying to upgrade your guitar, but that's just my humble opinion.

If you like the feel of the guitar then maybe get some GFS ones or something. Don't waste money on SDs or anything though. That would be ridiculous.

If you think you would use it, then yes. It's important to consider how much it will cost though. I have a Hondo Strat that I put new tuners in, and new pickups. While I'm happy with it, and it plays well, it cost alot more than i thought it would...

once you get a better amp, go for it... good practice with modding and stuff...
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!

That would be the only reason. As a tech learner. Other then that no way. Any decent pickup would probably be more then the worth of the guitar. Wouldn't be much value in that.
