i was thinking of buying a new standard tele and refinishing it in a butterscotch blonde colour. what would be the best way of stripping the finish of of a new tele? i hear that the poly finishes are a bitch to get off.

if this is the case, where is the best place to get an unfinished, raw tele body?

one more level of difficulty: I'M A LEFTY!!!!!

Musikraft has already been mentioned, but I say it again. I got a tele neck form there and it's great. I can't vouch for the bodies, but their neck quality is brilliant so I'd say their bodies will be too. Plus the pictures look great and they do a huge amount of options
