I took delivery on this guitar on Thursday. They don't even show up on the Squier web site and I've read that they're only available from MF (where I got mine), so there's no way to try one out unless you know someone who already owns one. The price was low enough that I figured it would be safe to take a chance and I'm really pleased with the build quality of the body and neck. As expected, the hardware is low end. The Strat-style trem gets in the way when I reach for the volume control. I may replace it with a Mustang bridge/trem assembly. The pickups are not very good. The bridge humbucker is muddy and indistinct, while the Strat neck pickup is just OK. I'd like to replace the stock pickups with a Duncan P-Rails in the bridge and a better quality Strat pickup in the neck, but I can't find any wiring diagrams for that setup. The vast majority of the diagrams I've seen assume two P-Rails will be installed. If anyone has pointers to a P-Rails - Strat scheme, I'd be appreciative. Here it is.
