Alright, over the summer, I'm gonna customize the crap out of a Tele. The plan is that I'll buy an old used Tele (preferably with an F-hole) at a local used guitar shop, replace whatever pickups are on it with a single coil and a humbucker (open), probably change the controls, paint the body, change the bridge to a strat style, change the pick guard, probably change the frets (unless they're not worn), and a few other things.

If the Tele is about $100, about how much should I expect to pay for the whole thing? I'll be buying everything else new. Thanks.

Most Likely about 400-500 dollars. I'm doing the same but with a Fender Strat.
Good Luck.
