Ive been dying to have a bash at making my own "signature" guitar and decided to go ahead, i dont want to be spending too much cash (around >300 for the guitar, paint, stencils, pickups new bridge ect) what would be a good cheap guitar to start off with as I dont have the tools or expeirience to make my own from scratch.

A used Squier. If you can get a good player they can be had cheap and make nice first project guitars.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

It's just bad quality wood, plus the neck has a different neck joint than fender-style, so if the neck is bad (like it is on mine) you have to build a whole new neck.
