Hey ya Caper, what kind of sound are you looking for, better question yet, what kind of Electric did you Buy....
Tele, Strat, Les Paul, Ibanez, Dean, Hollowbody, Tremolo, Hardtail, Flyod Rose, Bigspy, euah! a Steinberger or Kramer? any takers did say to much.

FX I use Rocktron Tsunami Chorus/Ambeince Pedal, Boss Metal Zone,Electro Harmonix Pulsar and Digitech RP50.
Pedals I may or may not have fried Alesis Faze, Dan Electro 6 wah\'s in one ( shaped like a Car ).

This is how I make my soup, with the Help of a Jackson ( not named above ) DKMGT and a Squire Custom Tele with 2 DiMarzio Super Distortion Humbuckers and a Rogue Fretless Bass with a Jasmine Cutaway acoustic and two  Vintage ukuleles, four calling birds, three french hens, two turtle doves ( i didn\'t know doves can turtle) and a Partridge in a pare Tree.

it is one of those cheapo fender squire stratocasters made in indonesia  with 3 single coil pickups and this 15w practice amp with gain.  im pretty happy so far altho i know i want to explore pedal effects and ill prob change out the pickups at some point too and get a better amp and and and :D

Packs I forgot about Packs, they are good Squire Goldfaced labels are the best, look at the guitar head and the word  Squire will either be imbossed all black or have a gold lettering insert ( don\'t know whatcha call this...) as far as Amps go with Marshell MG15cdr it\'s what I have it has a Reverb knob that sometimes/ sometimes not get in the way.

Enjoy your Strat Pack Caper.

thanks chris.  Strat Pack.  im already thinking of trading the whole thing in and spending more to get a better guitar and amp.  can you believe it?  believe it.  the action is so high on this squire.  even more i think because i was getting fret buzz and so gordon the guitar tech guy tweaked it.  but the D string is still buzzing and the action is high?!?!?  wth?  so i think the neck is freaky or something.  maybe he didnt adjust that, just went with the saddle adjustments.  anyway im still having fun no matter.  i like to play loud.  i like how the sound SUSTAINS i love love love that about electric guitars i love it so much!  so so so

The best Squires are the goldfaced, the ones I\'ve played were not from packs I ordered a red Telecaster, but it needed something and I didn\'t know what,so I went a hunting and was just about to go for a red cheapo bleepo Les Paul 100 when another telecaster caught my eye, Now this beut was like nothing I ever seen, it was a Tele but it had 2 count\'em 2 humbucker so the Wheels started to turn and at the time I was Listening to a Bunch of Ace Freheley, So in short I suped this tele up with DiMarzio Super Distortion Humbuckers and WOW my brain was Sauce that little guitar now has two brother and one sister and a litter of uke\'s to make\'m all come rocken home.

 :o I talk to much, Egads!

kewl.  every day that goes by i figure more about the different electronic tangents that can come together to a point in the sound coming frm the amp.  ok this squire may be a brick but thats ok i am grateful!  fun with sound :) music is (a big big part of) my life :)

hey! my squire is red maybe like your telecaster.  i like how red is too.

Red is good, Sunburst is better, but Black Forrest is best, thats the color of my Jackson DKMGT.
