Not sure where to post this, but anyways... I recently acquired a Squier M-80 Special. I got intrigued because it had a strat'ish body but with LP controls and scale. I intend to mod this a little. The guitar is not common, so if I may share the details... Specs: Model Model Number: 034-4000-(Color#) Model Name: M-80 Special Series: Master Series Body Colors: (506) Black, (Gloss); (575) Wine Red, (592) Walnut, (Satin), (Satin Polyurethane Finish) Body Material: Basswood Neck Neck Shape: C-Shape Neck Material: Maple (Polyurethane Finish) Number of Frets: 22 Fret Size: Jumbo Fretboard Radius: 12” Radius (305mm) Fretboard Material: Rosewood Nut Width: 1.6875” (42.86 mm) Scale Length: 24.75" (628.65 mm) Electronics Pickup Configuration: H/H Pickups: 2 Humbucking Pickups Pickup Switching: 3-Position Toggle: Pos 1. Bridge Pickup, Pos 2. Bridge and Neck Pickups, Pos 3. Neck Pickup Controls: Volume 1. (Neck Pickup), Tone 1. (Neck Pickup), Volume 2. (Bridge Pickup), Tone 2.

The pots are scratchy! I have started to record demos of how this sounds stock, and this is how it sounds clean: First half is clean switching from neck to middle to bridge positions per chord progression. The second half is how the guitar sounds like in a semi-produced environment. It sounds like there are keyboards but they are just compressors, delays, sub delays, and some reverb. The stock pickups actually sound good, but I wonder how it would sound with the rail humbucker in the bridge because I like to metal. So, the following will go into the guitar: Bourns 500K Pro Audio Pots Audio Taper for volume and tone, but the bridge humbucker will have a no load tone pot .022uf Orange Drops GM Rail Hammer humbucker by Guitar Madness Switchcraft 3-Way Short Toggle Switch w/ Genuine Switchcraft Black Tip Switchcraft #11 1/4 Mono Jack I hope you will enjoy this new endeavor and the audio clip! More audio and video clips will be posted as I progress. Thanks everyone!
