Hello there!! I have a made in korea strat. It says fender as the main logo, very small it says squier. Its just here, sitting in a case, use to belong to my brother years ago, atleast 15 years or so. Now its just sitting in a case, he doesnt play anymore. Well.. anyway, what I want to know is, would it be worth it so put some new pickups and hardware on it? It gives a scratching sound switching between pickups and using the knobs. The neck feels fine, from what I can tell its 1 piece, apart from the line in the back. Everything feels good, but would it be worth it?
