From the past few events, I'd say the percentage is surprisingly low. I'd wager less than 20% have any customization on the frames, although many players seem to not care too much about the amount of layers of overgrips (which can end up adding significant weight). I see minimal lead taping, and I've seen a handful of paint jobs, but that is very rare. Again, though, some teams don't string through the on-site services (traveling stringer, maybe?).
