I love it pretty much fully, and I'm a huge fan of worn(Which it seems this'll easily become) and/or different guitars, but my only worries are the following;

1. The removal of wood for contours could've messed with the tone a fair bit.

2. It looks good to me in the pics, but I'm not fully sure about the finish.

So, thoughts to assure me one way or the other?

I say go test it first...in Columbia

But seriously. Looks fine, but I think 200 is a bit too much (considering the fugly paintjob)

I wouldn't. That finishing looks very amateur, and personally I don't value strat contours that highly anyway. If I were you I wouldn't bother with that, and if you're really after a Tele with a contoured body then Warmoth can make you one that'll be much higher quality than that.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Ive got all the strat contours on my custom shop tele, and boy is it comfortable to play, not like playing a plank
I say go for it, you can always stip it down and then repaint it

IMO for that price,even if it has a lot of issues,it'd be a great project guitar.

Eh, you may be able to find a better looking/ better in general tele for cheaper. I bought a MIM fender strat for $110, after bargaining with a guy since it had a sticker on it. Look around a bit.
