    Hi guys. I'm new, and I love squiers!

    I'm also a student, and part of a project I'm working on is collecting information about people's attitude towards DIY modding on their guitars.
    If any of you have ~3 minutes to fill out this survey for me, I'd be very grateful!

    http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3567947/New-Survey

    To prove I'm legit, here's a pic of my '97 Yako strat. She cost me $45, and I've piled in god knows how much more on top of that, including a homemade paint job, a seemingly endless swap out of pick-ups, a fair amount of fret work, and a ton of other things that I can't remember. (still gotta replace those trapazoid tuners). Let me know if you want to talk more!

    It ended when I was halfway finished.

    Either way, good luck.

    As for modding, I'll just do whatever I think I can recoup. I know the bug is strong for many, but a Squier is only worth so much ... regardless of the shiny toys we add to it.

    It's like putting on $30K worth of stuff on a $5000 Civic. It's still only worth $5000.

    Then again, I've gotten some pretty good deals purchasing pre-modded guitars. I just picked one up ... and plan to disassemble it, and sell it for parts. I'll get my investment back by just selling the pickups. :)

    As a teacher, I have a month and a half left until summer. That's when I'll have more time to play. But again, I'll only mod what I can recoup. :)

    Thanks for all the help guys and gals! The survey is just an exercise in understanding a potential market, and since I like modding guitars, I thought I'd build it around that. Nothing will really come of it, but it was interesting looking at the responses. Let me know if you ever want me to share.
    I look forward to talking squier with y'all!
