I have wanted one for the longest time. Decided I'd buy a cheapy and a couple upgrades and make it a project. All said and done I paid 220 bucks for the Tele, bridge HB, and cts pots. I didnt cheap out cos I had to. I just have no real projects to do right now and want to hot rod a cheapy and see if I can make it into a great piece. So I kind of killed 2 birds with 1 stone. Got a tele and will satisfy my project needs.
