Re: Making a Guitar...
bjm is absoulutely right. Bunch of knobs they are. But the guys over in GB&C are alright (that's where you want to be for building a guitar). As for pickups, I would personally reccomend you buy EMGs since they really are the workhorse of metal pickups, everything from old school thrash to modern styles of death metal you really can't go wrong and don't listen to what anyone else says the clean sounds are amazing too (although you probably won't be even using them!)
In terms of the bridge, what sort of budget do you have? Because i could reccomend an Original Floyd Rose locking trem or a $25 hardtail bridge. It all depends on what you can afford.
