Good 'un.

EDIT: Infact, are you talking about the circular hole on the guitar? I don't know, when I took a Strat apart, there was nothing there, so, yeah.

I would say either to bolt on a neck (odd that it's only one hole though), or to hang it up by a string so you can paint it.

The hole in the neck pocket?
Probably use for a more stable joint with the neck

The bolt on neck has 4 holes and they not drilled on that guitar... And even if they were that hole there is too big so I don't think it's for screwing in the neck.
Maybe just a hole to hang the guitar for finishing.

I think it's a thing to hang the body on while it dries. I've seen them on other guitars too (in fact, my squier and my g-310 both have them).

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.

People are going to be stashing their drugs in their Teles now that you gave them the idea.

Anyways, the hole is there so they can hang it on a rack or hook and paint evenly around the guitar.

It's for the Micro-Tilt adjustment.

http://www.fender.com/support/telecaster.php

Shimming is a procedure used to adjust the pitch of the neck in relation to the body. A shim is placed in the neck pocket, underneath the butt end of the neck. On many American series guitars, a Micro-Tilt adjustment is offered. It replaces the need for a shim by using a hex screw against a plate installed in the butt end of the neck. The need to adjust the pitch (raising the butt end of the neck in the pocket, thereby pitching the neck back) of the neck occurs in situations where the string height is high and the action adjustment is as low as the adjustment will allow. To properly shim a neck, the neck must be removed from the neck pocket of the body. A shim approximately 1/4" (6.4 mm) wide by 1 3/4" (44.5 mm) long by .010" (0.25 mm) thick will allow you to raise the action approximately 1/32" (0.8 mm). For guitars with the Micro-Tilt adjustment, loosen the two neck screws on both sides of the adjustment access hole on the neckplate by at least four full turns. Tightening the hex adjustment screw with an 1/8" hex wrench approximately 1/4 turn will allow you to raise the action approximately 1/32". Retighten the neck screws when the adjustment is complete. The pitch of the neck on your guitar has been preset at the factory and in most cases will not need to be adjusted.
