Used guitar for customizing?

Scenario: Want to make a custom guitar. Going to replace pickups (if they suck) and do a custom paint job. Have the resources, just need guitar. Question: Would buying a used guitar with cosmetic flaws (not to the structure of the guitar such as dents or warped necks, but just the paint job) be suitable for this, or should I get a new one? And if I bought a used guitar, would it be bad to purchase from online from a store such as Musician's Friend or should I visit my local dealer? Additional Details: I have never attempted to customize a guitar. I own 3 guitars and like the way they are, just want one to say I put work into. I would prefer to buy a used Ibanez Rg or S. Not spending over $400 on guitar.

Have you looked at local pawn shops? They are probably the best source for used guitars right now. And many of the prices are far lower than a shop and you don't need to pay extra for shipping. :)
