Where can i get a stratocaster that looks just like this strat(click) but much MUCH cheaper?

also would buying a cheap black strat with a different neck and then buying a maple neck be cheap?

Buy an American Strat and put Vintage Noiseless pickups in it.
Did you know the odds of a Vault-Tec shelter failing are 1,763,497 to 1?

LOOKS like it? a regular Fender standard strat (MIM Mexican made) will look exactly like it. sounding like it etc is different, but it's only $400

plus they come with Maple necks if you order them that way, no need to reinvent the wheel

Better yet, get the Classic Series 50's Strat. 8 hole pickguard, old spaghetti logo, V-shaped neck; looks exactly like it.

Well either save up to get the MIM for $400. Or perhaps get a used black MIM strat with a maple fretboard. If you don't want to wait. Then you'll have to look at some squires.

All clapton guitars come with a "soft V" neck contour, you are going to have to get a cheap neck and shave it down, or custom order a V cont neck.

Oh, get a squier and sand the logo off, add fender logo, and voila. A fender lookalike.

No I'm not Jesus. I would aspire to be though. I think under circumstances he would let you pay less if you needed to.

See, this is the best idea. And I was gonna say it! *gives evils*

But you'd better be off with this, it has the 1 ply pickguard aswell. Maybe you could change the plastic hardware, to make it look new, but that doesn't cost anything really, £20 at most for legit Fender parts.
