    I actually like the SE models better than super expensive one's, just going by feel.

    Yeah, I will probably have to travel and try one out before I seriously considering upgrading. I know of a couple of people that prefer the S2 necks to the core models too.

    I HAD a Memphis LP back in the 80's. Due to my ignorance, I sold it. If I can find the old 35mm pic of me playing it at a gig I will post....beautiful guitar, wine red and silver hardware. About 30 years later I learned about Memphis guitars..........:facepalm:

    Squier (by Fender) … these are just the Stratocasters and I've picked up another one since this pic at Christmas.
    Upgrades and mods on the lower end models, and next to none if any on the CV's. Please excuse the lone Fender Strat Plus back row center.

    That's what did it for me, the SE's I've tried had nice beefy necks and were lightly made.
    I need to grab me a P90 one next time i can.

    Beautiful collection! :metal:

    Do you ever have or get a hum problem with your single coils...?

    Do some amps give you trouble with hum on the bridge pickup....??

    I use xgp shielding paint (two coats) in the body route cavity, and ground it to the bridge plate. It'll greatly reduce any single coil hum.
    It's much easier and far less frustrating to use than shielding tape. The adhesive on those also has to be conductive to have the correct shielding properties needed.

    GFS sell it … https://www.guitarfetish.com/XGP-Flat-Black-Cavity-Shielding-paint-HIGHLY-conductive_p_18783.html

    Cheers.

    I found it only on the bridge pickup. Could also be my amp, its an old Fender Champion 110....LOL
