I came up with an idea after reading a thread where someone advised a newb just to buy a guitar and strip it and reasemble it and do a good set up. I reckoned I could buy a cheap second hand strat copy, there are plenty around after all and use the neck and some other components to build a 3 pick up tele. I could call it the budget caster (although the budget will end up going out the window) So I had a look around and found this.... http://edinburgh.gumtree.com/edinburgh/84/32855484.html My flipcaster will be for my wife, so I'm gona need a new amp anyway and if even if the neck needs re fretting and refinishing it's still a bargain. What do you lot reckon? I might actually try and keep it to a tight budget just for the sake of a thread showing what could be done on the cheep.
