I'm producing a rock/indie thing at the moment in my spare time and it's great fun to be getting into guitars again! - been playing alot over the last few weeks as a consequence & it's coming on really good!... all we need now is a great drummer for making it happen live.

drop better pickups and tuners in a squier and it could be great. I put 3 used duncans and some sperzel locking tuners on a Fernandes and it's slick. those stock pickups tend to be real real noisy.

I would love to own a paisley Tele... nice guitar for song based rock, it seems to give really well defined notes in chords even when it's humming loud. I'd also like an ibanez for doing experimental sound & harmonic and bending fx and riffs and stuff.

btw the squire ones are ok if it's a Jap one, just fit better hardware keys if you want greater tuning stability add a locking nut. I've got retro machine heads on my strat and it sucks at staying in tune.

Hi,

Yeah another great tip for tuning stability in cheaper strats is the use of one of those gadgety things instead of a standard spring in the back. it pulls in both directions... I have one in my us standard and it works great.... apparently them come standard in the US expensive strats...

Also my number one tuning stability tip is simple: the telecaster and stratocaster were designed in the days before light gauge strings were commonplace as they are now. People put 8's 9's and 10's in those things and complain about the tuning stability (and for thay matter the weedy sounding pickups!) THESE GUITARS WERE/ARE NOT DESIGNED FOR SUCH THIN STRINGS!

If you goto a set of 11's you'll hear a massive difference with the bridge pickup and a bit with the neck....

I use 13-58's with a nice high action and have absolutely no tuning stability probs at all... Standard US strat, 4 springs and the springy gizmo in the bridge, and standard tuning pegs (no need for sperzel locking), and a standard nut (no need for those ball bearing jobs either).

However one great tip is the type of retainers on the headstock you know the little clips to angle down the higher strings, you want the little roller bars not the big screw top type. the big screw head/top type give to much friction and introduce a bit more tuning stability...

Anyways hope some of those tips help, they all work for me, only thing is you need a forearm like popeye with 13-58 or only play short sets!!

Cheers

Stvy

yeah but my squire's had a balls-out metal/rock humbucker fitted at the bridge and i run 10's on it, great for rock & dirty, not so good for cleaner sounds.
