Im gunna be buying a tele body and build one from scratch to my own specs. Im wanting to do a kind of jim root john5 type thing with humbuckers but that means routing for most tele bodies. I know there are bodies out there ready for that and hot rails and such but but excluding that possibility how will i go about altering the body? any links or instruction would be great. thanx.

Okay well I'm sorry for the confusion I'm low on time and i probably should have made my thoughts more clear. thank you AngusJimiKeith i haven't looked at the website yet but that sound exactly like what I'm looking for. If there are any other tips you have for me that would be awesome. Again sorry Øttər; my reaction may have been unwarranted and as i said i am simply in a hurry and not exactly in the mood for comments without any positive direction.
