I've currently got a Squier Affinity Strat (Yeah I know lol) and I thought instead of buying an off the shelf guitar next I'd make my own!

What I'm planning to do is have humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions and keep a single coil in the middle position. Now my current body only has space for 3 single coil pickups so I've got a decision to make; do I get my current body modified (I assume they can be routed to fit larger pickups?) or are the Squier bodies so bad that I'm better off buying a brand new body?

Next question is if I do decide to go the brand new route, what do I need to look for in a body? It seems there are so many different woods/designs/configurations etc that I don't know where to start! From reading it seems even the Squier Strats have a different design/size to the normal ones, is this right?

Thanks in advance, I've got many more questions but if someone could help with this it would get me started
shouldn't this go in guitar building?
