    There are many good sources of "standard" bodies (teles, strats, a few others) but when you get farther from that you probably have to either make your own or have it done for you. Assuming by V you mean a Gibson style Flying V, remember that (1) the neck is set instead of bolted on, (2) they usually came with a ToM so the geometry will be set up for that, (3) they were Gibson scale, (4) most had humbuckers.....

    It would be a piece of cake to build a tele style body in a Vee shape with whatever bridge you wanted, but I think you need to do it.

    Rosser on eBay. I bought a telebird from him that was great quality for the bucks. Pretty heavy though.

    Kne Guitars in California has a V body that will take a bolt on neck. I believe most of their stuff is set up for the 25 1/2" scale, but not all. You could do a conversion neck if you wanted the Gibson 24 3/4" scale.
    I got an Explorer body for bolt on neck from them that's pretty nice...and they make lefties to boot!
