Hi all, I'm just getting into playing again after a 15 year break... ... and my playing shows it. Last week I bought an Ultra-American Strat (Ash Tobacco Sunburst) with a amp which is too big and loud for an apartment. I have a Mexican Strat and a Epi SG. Looking at this site has me thinking about 'upgrading' the Mexican Strat: new pickups, etc. Anyone ever done that and found it worth it? P.S. What strings should I get for my new lady?
