    I think I can get all the parts for under $350, all said and done. Their new necks look good. Worth it?

    I ordered one of their bond tele bodies. Sent it right back. Just not the quality I was looking for.

    Not the XGP so maybe better quality with those bodies.

    I had a finished XGP body a few years ago.....a Fender neck fit PERFECTLY. Other hardware fit as well.
    This is a CHEAP Guitar Fetish unfinished Paulownia body. I expected to have to "tweak" it, but all my hardware and a Warmoth (Fender-spec) neck fit like a glove. I have nothing but good things to say about Guitar Fetish components. Vox 132.JPG

    My experience (several years ago) was that if you’re willing and ready to put some work into getting things to go together, you’ll be fine. Nothing was quite perfect, so there was fiddling, but it was less work than trying to make my own body/neck, which would have been a laughable disaster. (Didn’t get my neck from them, but whatever...)
