    Whats good everybody! New guy here. I have a 2006 MII standard which I've recently put in some Tex Mex pups, lefty pots, replaced white PG with tortoise shell, input jack with cloth wires, locking tuners and MIM trem block. All holes line up except for the trem arm, which Im fine with. Waiting on black lefty control knobs and black pup covers.

    This was my first time doing any type of mod and I scuffed body with drill while enlarging hole for jack wires, but its all good! Squier Mod.jpg
     
  2. Looks damned nice! Welcome.;) Cheers, Barrie.
     
  3. As for the scuff mark, and you know this now, always put a cloth between the guitar body and the drill chuck.
    Cheers, Barrie.

    Welcome to you from another new member.
    Your guitar is fantastic looking. Excellent work on picking it and upgrading it.
    Where do you find ''lefty'' parts?

    Hope to see you around often.

    I got the pots from Starr Guitar Systems. $60 for pots, jack and selector switch. The Lefty trem block and lefty controls knobs are from Guitar Parts Factory. The PG I found on Amazon.

    Welcome to ST. Nice looking strat, I think it will look even better with the black covers and knobs too. As far as that paint chip goes, black is the easiest color to match, go to the 99 cent store and get some black fingernail polish. Even if you just fill it in with polish it will blend in pretty well.
