    We all love em, now the question is, where can I buy one? I'm not a big fan of the squier CVC. I feel like I would put a bunch of money into it to make it stand up better to my other guitars. Does anyone make a bound tele body or is there another model that would be cheaper than finding a used cvc just for the body?

    If you're looking for just a body to build a partscaster, I saw a few on eBay this morning. If you want something dirt cheap check out GFS.

    These ones are built up from parts. The red one is a northwest guitars body from here in the UK and the burst one is a chambered Warmoth body with a natural masked binding as they refer to it.

    Amazon.com carries some Fender Japan guitars including the TL62B. (LINK) They are not especially economical but by all accounts Fender Japan makes excellent guitars.
