Hello everybody. My name is Dave and I'm from Grand Rapids, Michigan and now living in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. I've been playing guitar for fifteen years and just recently started lessons for the first time. On my instructor's recommendation, I bought a Squier Strat SE (perfect neck, dinged-up body, plays wonderfully for $60) that I'm in the process of modding. So far, decking the trem, adding locking tuning machines, Rose pickups, replacing all the wiring with CTS pots, CRL switch, Orange Drop cap and anything else I can think of. I'd been reading the forum without joining for a while and from what everyone says about the Rose pickups, that's the thing I'm looking forward to the most. I'll probably mostly lurk, but I know I can come here anytime for good advice. Thanks in advance.
