Strat meets Tele

I'm thinking about doing a build this summer, and I wanted to know if y'all think it would be neat. I was going to get a body from a squire strat(fullsize), put an aftermarket neck, a tele 3saddle bridge, with tele pickups in the bridge and neck and whatever ends up working for me in the middle. My question is will I be able to replace the bridge with relative ease, or is it going to require alot if retrofitting, which I'm just fine with. It's probably a boneheaded question, but I'm a les paul guy so I'm not too familiar with strats and teles.

i'm terrible at diy so I don't want to say anything about the bridge. but the big problem is even though the bridge isn't recessed on a strat there's going to be a big hole for the trem sustain block in the body. maybe if you find a hardtail strat body?

personally i'd probably prefer a strat neck pickup (that's what i really came in here to say) to the tele one- tele neck pickups probably are under-rated and I do like them for some things, but if push comes to shove i prefer the strat neck pickup.

get a hard tail strat to do this. It will work fine, but I would use a modern tele bridge only because intonating a 3 saddle bridge is a complete compromise of how close to intonated you actually want to be with each string.

Or buy an un-routed body which would be my choice

So basically you want a John Cruz '51 but you cannot afford it?

This.

They stopped using those 3 saddle bridges for a reason.

I agree on just getting a hardtail strat and modding it.
