    You'd spend more on getting a decent neck than you did on the guitar...
    Only thing I can think o if you want it cheap is make your own which isn't that hard but our maple is very very hard.
    The other option I can think of is order from warmoth.

    Lastly, jackson have a factory in india right?. Their nock pockets are probably similiar meaning that you could ask them for a replacement neck.

    Pickguard is easy if you don't care about prewiring.
    Just get a large enough piece of acrylic/plastic and cut it out to shape. It's pretty easy to do.
    Or again, warmoth.com and guitarpartsdepot.com are your best bets,

    ah the best modification to a squier is removing the god-aweful bridge.

    Most any shop will sell you a floyd. Bharat will and I know for sure that bhargavas in daryaganj ahs loads plus he gets you anything you want

    between 3-8.5k depending on the quality of floyd you choose. An original floyd will run you about 8 i think, minus installation

    Bhargavas is in Daryaganj, Delhi, right? Is it the same as the one in Mumbai? As in, which one is the original, and which one is the subsidiary?

    man I need to get the intonation on my squier fixed. Reckon a fixed bridge will help?

    I think the delhi one is the main one, because the guy there appears to own both. It's the same one.

    I doubt it. A squier bridge ca be a fixed bridge by simply adding as many sprigs as possible in the back and removing the whammy bar.

    Other than that, you'll have to adjust the individual saddles like on all guitars. If that still doesn't work, it means your guitar has been made incorectly and you'll need to route it out to move the bridge a bit forward or back.

    I just hate the squier bridges because of the height adjustment on the saddles where the screws stick up out of the saddles if you lower them. I either have to have ultra high action or have my hand impaled if I try to palm mute.
