Is a Squier Strat worth saving?


Recommended Posts

I've got this Squier standard Strat that I don't play. It's just hanging on my wall gathering dust. The thing sucks. The pickups suck, the action is terrible, the frets buzz up and down the neck, any use of the trem causes the strings to go way out of tune, etc. Typical Squier. :D [it's not even a "good" Korean model, this one was made in Indonesia!]

I was thinking of disassembling it, selling everything but the body, and basically building a new Strat just using the existing body. The question is, is it worth it? Is the body made of a decent enough wood to sound good if I replaced everything? [According to the Squier site, it's made of agathis.] Or should I just use it to draw some patterns and then get rid of it as a whole guitar?

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
