    I LOVE double bound teles, but they seem quite rare or expensive. I’ve priced the Warmoth bodies and they are crazy expensive...is there somewhere that sells a decent quality tele body with double binding?

    The Allparts bodies aren’t necessarily the cheapest but the quality is great and things like the neck pocket are properly cut. There are a lot of very good bodies from China coming up on eBay and Reverb nowadays too - but sometimes the neck pockets need a bit of work and I’ve had a couple where the holes for the neck weren’t in the right spot so I’ve had to fill with dowels and re-drill. In terms of the price, quality balance, I’d recommend having a look at the Japanese made Hosco bodies.
