I'm having a hell of a time trying to sell 2 sweet MIJ guitars and the neck on one of them is just "special" so I'm contemplating building a mutt Tele around that neck. Of course on ebay the Stratosphere seems to be the king of necks and bodies. I'm not sure about their pricing, but clearly they have the largest selection. I think Maple + Ash is a great combo, but I won't discount Alder if I find something nice. My main question is do people really get hung up with MIM vs. MIJ vs. MIA when it comes to the body? They usually list the country of origin, but there are a few nicely priced T bodies with a humbucker neck route <which would be great so I could do standard, P90 or humbucker, right?> that LOOK really nice. It says Fender American Standard - so the Standard is actually MIM? They also have really nice nitro highway one bodies, but where are they made? 25% cashback on ebay right now so I want to pull the trigger asap.
