The traditional pickup configuration for a Strat is generally 3 single coils, but many variations exist. I invested in a Ctech Pocketrockit V2. As TwoMartin said, you could always replace the pickguard if you wish. The twin humbucker pickup configuration is very popular with the metal shredding crowd. It affects your ability to keep the guitar in tune, for sure. For the most part, they are well made, affordable guitars.
The 3 single combination far outsells any other combination and may account for why the 2 humbucker configuration is no longer manufactured. Even though one may not become an Yngwie, it's good exercise for the body and mind, and breaks the monotony of the daily grind. I need one because I'm having trouble with setting the intonement due to adjustment screws touching the strings within the incorrectly fitted at factory? It's difficult to find that info on the Fender site; I was curious myself about what all those freekin' switches and knobs were for after a friend of mine got one when they first came out. He didn't know exactly, and the salesperson at the store wasn't real sure either. It's all part of the journey and all part of the fun.
A 12 inch ruler, when set on the frets lengthwise on its slender metal edge, should touch all frets flatly. The guitar has a nice feel to it and believe it or not, it did sound pretty good although 'ringy', so I'm going to try to sort this out, if not maybe get a decent shop to drill the body for the strings. You would first have to make sure that the body of the guitar is routed properly to be able to accept whatever configuration you wanted to use. . The previous owner didn't even play it enough to leave the typical wear marks on it.
With those goals and others in mind, Squier will continue to offer products with features and prices that deliver truly excellent value, from beginners to hobbyists to working musicians alike. Any help would be appreciated. It was made in 2003. Check to see that each string is in tune when plucked open, and then again when fretted at the 12th fret. Pickup configurations are a matter of choice. From what I can gather it was made in 2003, correct? Thanks guy, i actually checked there. He only ever plays the bridge humbucker.
Tune up again, and play. The important thing is to have fun on your musical journey. The twin humbucker pickup configuration is very popular with the metal shredding crowd. They do sell some cheap stuff, but their products are generally sworn by, especially the pickups. The Standard Series is one of the higher grade series in the Squier line.
Thanks to Sparky and Kback 4 yor replies. Squier is Fender's Asian import brand. If a given string is off, then you must move the screw in or out accordingly. Like, if you purchased a new Ford F-250 Truck or who ever you choose you get an owners manual for a Ford F-250 Truck not just a generic Ford Manual that covered the Focus, Fusion, Taurus, Edge, etc etc. We make every effort to ensure the information contained here is as accurate as possible, but we will not be responsible for any errors or omissions, or anything resulting thereof.

One of the first modifications that many people do to their Squiers are in fact the pickups. If you want wiring diagrams and more info, e-mail me at Have a ball!!! I'll get a photo of the problem area asap. If you buy one, you simply have to solder two cables to the output jack and one to the tremolo on the back as a ground. I'll be happy when I can make a recognizable noise. It's a fairly simple process involving a small screwdriver and a soldering iron.
