Re: Squire 51 Relic Update
Im not sure about "ridiculouly good" value. Stock it had it's problems, but I suppose for a beginner it was ok. I had a few parts laying around to upgrade with so it didnt cost me much out of pocket.
I had the Gibson 57 Classic for the bridge laying around and pots and switches, and klusons. I had to buy the neck pickup (Fender Vintage Noiseless) and the new control plate since the original didnt have a spot for a 3 way switch. If I had known what a pain in the ass it was going to be to route out the control cavity for American pots and a 3 way, Im not sure I would've gone that way.
