Hello just thaught I would say hi. I am totally new to guitars and have an old squire Stratocaster (SN: P027026) baught 2nd hand back in 2000 with the intention of playing it . I never did . I just kept it in the bag and it's moved around with me throw the years spending a fair bit of that in the loft . I have taken it in to a local shop were I was told it's not really worth them repairing it as most of the parts are lickley coroded. (Forgive me if I have the wording wrong here ) I rember one of the variable resistors didn't work back in the day . And now over time 2 of the 3 are sized . And also was told the pickups are more then lickley gone, . Also was told that the head bolt might be stuck. It seems a shame to bin it. And I'm more then happy to re fit new or 2nd hand parts and re wire it . I(know there is a louse wire in side years ago with no ideas were came from) but I'm going to open it up on weekend and see if I can make sense of it, But after spending a few hours reading up I'm still not sure what I should be getting . I would like to restore it to sound like something that what it used to be .. and totally have no idea what the jargon is all about . And also how to set these things up right .. or how to tell if there even right . If any one can point me in the right direction that would be great . But I think I'm going to buy a 2nd hand amp .(fender Mustang 2) .and start from there .
