I’m looking to build a partscaster for my teenage son who recently picked up guitar. He wants a strat in Seafoam green but all I can find are Surf Green. There are some crappy Basswood Squier Strats out there that I could dissect for the body, but I‘m really looking for Alder or Poplar. Warmoth is a little pricey. Any alternatives finished bodies?

No personal experience, but they've been on my radar.

The last time I was body shopping, I ended up buying a used Mexicaster with case. By the time I sold off the neck, pups and hardware, I basically got the body I wanted and a case for free.

i assume this has been taken care of already but for record:
I second stratosphere parts dot com and also guitar fetish dot com.
otherwise, just buy something local second hand and spray paint it.
