    You can. Just buy the level of quality of parts you want, paint the body your favorite flavor of rat, bolt it together, solder it up.

    Allparts, Mighty Mite, etc, have good stuff to choose from, or better yet, buy it all used from eBay.

    I think I've seen one from Anderson that was the bees knees! I'm sure any of those guys would make it.

    Recently I had to finish a set with a guitar with just a lead pickup because of a broken string or something. I wondered for a few moments what I needed more than one pickup for.

    Have fun & build your own--I suggest buying the neck new from USACG or Warmoth and then looking around ebay for a body that looks cool. Necks are so personal, I never like to leave them to chance.

    The Squier Hello Kitty. It's a hardtail, single hum strat style. X out kitty's eyes, put a JB or something equally rude, and you're golden. And for cheap too.

    Squier bullet- I see lots of starter guitars at Target or Best Buy like that.

    I scored a used First Act single-hum strat for $50, and it really plays well. The neck is better than any Squire I've played. Might upgrade the pu and pots.

    i have a black Delonge sig strat... replaced the pearloid guard with a black one, straight up awesome guitar, ive never bonded with a strat before but i did with this one, if you see one... dont buy it, i want them all for myself!!!

    i use mine alot for gigging if the venue is a bit questionable for security of gear, sometime i just use it cause i like it.

    for the most part if your a LP guy you'll prob get on just fine with a delonge strat, big sound, big frets etc.
