That's rather alarmist. A body/neck/bridge swap is not to "butcher" anything. Neither is a nicely done spray-over finish in the "correct" material to simulate a Fender factory refin done in the '60s. Neither will the results be any old "Frankenstein." They'll still be high quality real Fender parts, nothing ugly, monstrous, or patched together about the two resulting guitars. They'll be totally seamless, with only detail-oriented hobbyists like myself knowing that they aren't stock. And you seemed to have missed that the Page can always be returned to stock and sold (not that I ever will, but speaking theoretically), and I'll be left with a beautiful Dakota Red AV '64 (possibly the only one in existence). But as you correctly pointed out, to each their own. So when you get a Page Tele and an AV '64, feel free to leave them alone, and I will gladly support that decision.
