I like B hefner because they have really good light wood for a very low price but I don't like how he won't drill/route for whatever bridge you might have in mind like Warmoth would, so I have to do them myself but problem is sometimes its easy to get those wrong. Warmoth is good but prices are a little high and their strat body is not vintage correct but they do get everything right.

Try cutting one yourself... I can't describe how cool it is to play something you crafted from scratch. Cool

Other than that, I have always bought really cheap bodies off EBay and turned them into more than they ever would have been. (IMO) And that's a pretty cool feeling too. Very Happy
