So, I've got this Squier Strat VII. It's great fun to play, and I don't really need much more in a 7-string since it's mainly a bedroom shredder for me. The tone, however, isn't quite right. Something about it isn't right for me with the stock pickups, and it makes me not want to play it. It doesn't have the right bite and attack that my other guitars have. The trouble is, it has the same problems when unplugged compared to my other guitars that resonate better and are louder unplugged, with more articulation. Will new pickups give me what I need, or would it be a waste of money on a guitar I'll never be fully happy with?
Pickups won't add tone that isn't already there
