As I explained in my recently-posted introduction, I'm new to strats but certainly not to guitars and guitar-modding and I'd like to build me a modded strat. I want to keep the classic 3 pickups configuration and general guitar craft and replace the pickups with vintage "gold foil" ones (DeArmonds or Teiscos...). 'Cause I like that tone. My first step is to get my hands on a strat, or at least a strat body and neck. Since gold foils PU's are quite expensive these days, I'd like to get the guitar for cheap but I'm reluctant to go "sweatshop-plywood-cheap", iykwim. But keep it under 100$ if that's possible... (is it ?) Do you see any options available ? 2nd hand MIK Squier ? Hamer ? Sammick ? Some other brand I wouldn't know about ?
