    Okay, so a while back (bout a year and a half) ago I had a little spare money and I decided to buy a guitar to beat to shit and basically fuck around with, as I didn't want to do anything with my other two guitars (Joe Perry Les Paul, and one of those MusicYo steinbergers which is starting to piss me off more and more).

    Anyway, after all this time, during which I've fucked it up pretty much (thrown it around onstage after a gig, covered it in stickers and bought mismatching volume/tone pots for it, took the scratchplate off), well, it looks pretty cool, in an ugly as fuck kind of way, and has pretty much become my favourite guitar of the bunch. However, squier pickups are pretty shit, and it's hard to control them feedbacking like shit when you crank the amp up.

    So, as the title would suggest, does anyone know any cool pickups I could use, bearing in mind I'm a poor student with little to nothing to my name (i'm gonna have to save up for them, whatever you suggest) Or any techniques I could use to stop the feedback with my current pickups (hopefully without taking away any of the tone or sustain)

    Also, that's pretty much what the fucker looked like when it was new. (Although it looks very little like that now [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img] )

    The only way to stop pickups from squeeling is to pot them with epoxy or wax, so unless you feel comfortable with doing this you're going to have to spend some money on some decent quality pickups. I've never bought replacement pickups for a Tele, but since I'm a Seymour Duncan man I'd check them out. (I'm sure DiMarzio has some great Tele pickups as well.)
