Looking for ideas on putting together one or a few cheap builds for beginners and keep the cost as low as possible. Anyone know who’s selling good batches of cheap but good guitar bodies? Preferably finished in appealing/fun colors. The plan is to use good necks I have, mostly standard strat specs, but go cheap on the body and pickups. The neck pockets need to be good for what I’m trying to do, with a good setup. Another question, what would be the cost/return on investing in tools to make bodies? I heard you don’t really save money if you’re doing a small amount. I have limited space, and prefer not doing finishing work. I wanna do my version of a budget guitar but people tell me it’s a hard business model.
