if youve got money to spend www.warmoth.com

they specialise in just bodys and necks all pre cut but no paint.

thers other sites aswell in abundance but thats your main contender.



EDIT: no idea on the geography of canada so i cant help you there.

this whole guitar building thing is gonna be wayyyy more than i expected...

You want quality parts, you got to pay quality prices.

Well. in truth cheap = ****, you can't really fidn any chepa sites that will do all the wood work for oy uand cahrge ten bucks. most places charge at least 150. You coudl try ebay though they might have soemthing. But your right guitar building can be really expensive, esp if you don't have the tools to do it yourself.

Carvin sells precut/routed bodies for pretty cheap.

Check out eBay as well, I saw a killer precut/routed ash tele body for around $30 just yesterday.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

Carvin is probably your best bet. Other options include Mightymite, Warmoth, USA Custom Guitars, Allparts, and a few reputable Ebay sellers.

You could always go for a saga kit if you really don't have that much money.
