I've had a stock MIM classic 50's strat for about 10 years, and it's my only single coil guitar. I'm struggling with whether I should mod it (upgrade pickups, steel tremolo block, nut, etc.) or just by a new American standard that already comes with those features. Either way, I want to step up to something of better quality/tone. I love the v-shape neck on my guitar, but the vintage frets are really worn down to where I'm getting close to refret territory ($250-$300). Any thoughts on the best route to go?
