I tend to doubt that their quality would be better than that of the parts on your Squier.
Normally I tend to agree, but the trem on my Squier is missing the tremolo arm, could do with an extra spring or two, and the GFS comes with a not-pot-metal-and-skinny trem block which I strongly suspect will increase the sustain of this guitar - something it pretty desperately needs.
You could always do what I did and go Wilkinson? Then you get a staggered solid steel block?
Having reconnected with my friend from the Chapman Stick world has me GASsing for an SG12, tuned in Matched Reciprocal SG12, with a bamboo body and a Villex PASV-4 pickup block.
Oh come on Patrick, play fair!
Not a bad idea, but I have the stupid Affinity Strat with the slightly-skinnier body so I have to be picky in my block selection.
Also, the more I think about this the more I think this is the direction I'm going to go - Genesis can wait a bit. I have plenty of dual humbucker guitars, and it would be really nice to have an actual Strat to pick up and noodle around with. Opens up a lot of new possibilities, and the mods don't cost too terribly much money in the grand scheme.
Do you have a link for that @AngusWolfe ?

I'm having a random thought of putting EMG pickups in everything...
Pacifica 112vcx - 57+sa+sa
Pacifica 611HFm - 57+P60A
SC608 - 808X+808X+RPC
Jazzmaster - N/A
Silvertone - N/A
From the Patrick James Eggle guitars Facebook page, so probably a private build. I’m sure they’d build you one, for the right price (and after I get mine, obvs.
Although, it kind of makes me think of what Yamaha’s Revstar range would do with a single cut?
Now THAT would be sweet.
And, I suspect, a damn sight cheaper too...
Why do I do it, it’s even got a glorious rosewood neck
It’s over on the fretboard http://www.thefretboard.co.uk/discussion/127756/fs-prs-513-wood-library-pics-added#latest
DO IT! The 513 should not have been replaced by a lesser variant.
That's awesome I wonder if he would trade for one of my children lol

I’d love to but it’s just not quite the right timing for me at the moment. I need to stop looking for a while
Boston kit guitars got a good review in this month’s Guitarist mag. Thinking of getting a bolt on singlecut to do my own version of the PJE above, and a cool way to learn stuff about guitars I don’t know.
I am obsessed with this guitar: looks, hardware, everything. I would like to buy a really nice, premium guitar some time in the future, and I'm wondering if this is it.
Are these really worth over 2000 €?
I vote yes, as all of the following add cost:
KTS titanium rods
high-quality basswood, likely imported and then exported
ebony, likely imported and then exported
bareknuckle pickups, imported and then exported
Think you know what high end means eh? Think again - outrageous
I know what high end means.
High end means not having to rent the hotel room by the hour, right?
You meant guitars.
I KNEW THAT!
LOL you’re killing me. @bad alice you are very bad indeed
