So I ended up buying Brainfur/Nick's VM, and I just threw some Fender '65 Reissue pickups in it that I got (megadeal on the bridge pup from JD).
Admittedly, the change was more aesthetic than tonal (the stock ones have stuck-on white covers), but these new ones sound just as good, and it's kinda funny to reflect on everyone crying about these pickups in their Mustangs back in t'day because they didn't sound like teh Kurdtz. Suckahs just didn't know how to dial their shit in.
Ditto the trem system; it works GREAT. Just set it so the tailpiece rests against the plate by adjusting the springs and posts, divebombs all over the shop but stays in tune.
That weird one is interesting, but what colour is the one on it now, cream? Do you really think it's worth swapping to white? It's a lot of filing if it's not one made especially for Squier. _________________
I only buy synths with mini keys as I like the shortscale synths.
Yeah, it doesn't make me feel better. I can't drive either and have no career going on. Plus I can't play guitar well. I need to start doing something with all that. At least I need to start practising. Not today though, I'll think about it tomorrow
Gear was just the Amplitube 3 VST running in Reaper on my pc; Mesa-style almost-clean amp with their Fuzz Face models for each guitar track.
Thank you, that is a very detailed and helpful description _________________

It's "parchment", like a slightly green-yellow off-white. I'd prefer it white, as it helps bring the blue of the body out, so yeah, it's worth it to me, wannafightaboutit
I've ordered a cheapy one from China with no USA/Japan specificity mentioned, but it' so cheap I don't really mind if it doesn't work out and can't be filed into shape. Apparently this one Nick put on was also a cheapy Chinese import that he filed a bit. Worst case scenario, I get a custom cut from somewhere using the stock torty one.
