Don't listen to anything anyone in this thread has said. Upgrade to a mexican strat or epiphone or something. Awesome electronics in a shitty guitar = shitty sound. A better guitar will not only sound better, but feel and play better.
exactly. Listen to me when i say this. BRANDS DO MATTER. a squier is shit. i started on one as well and if you are serious about playing guitar upgrade to a whole new guitar. dont waste your money buying new elctronics for the squier. You can buy a really nice Mexican Strat by Fender for around $400. I have a mexican fat strat for example and then later i upgraded the bridge pickup on that for a beefier sound. I own a few guitars and i will honestly say go out and buy a Mex. Fender. Tele or a strat both play nice but a little different so go check them out first before you buy.

first of all, its all self preference, but in my opinion squiers arent that bad, and in reality epiphone are just cheap gibsons, theyre the same company, only epiphones are machine made, and gibsons are hand made
