There are so many variables, we need more specifications of what you're looking for. What sound are you aiming for? What wood are you planning to use? How do you plan to finish it? How many strings? Buying a neck or building it? What kind of pickups?

EDIT: No offense, guy above me, but you can't just throw out a random price.

yes.

though the range he put out is like saying the highs for today are 130 and the lows are -20. it sounds fair to me.

True, I need to take one of the zeros away from the 300 and give it to the 3000.

Kidding, yeah it's more variable than that.

Sorry if that came off as rude, I just found it funny the way you wrote that.

I'd be willing to bet your build falls somewhere between $1 and $1000000 (in US if course) I'd actually be very surprised to see it higher.

hmm. maybe 150 max for wood (w/o any fancy tops), 250 max for pickups, 400 max for hardware, what kinda finish you want?

oil is an easy and cheap finish. my suggestion. it looks nice too.

if you wanna be cheap, maybe 600?

stewmac sells Gotoh bridges at a ridiculously good price, get one of those if you can.
