In these days, there is no reason to go with a single action.
I personally like to get as long of a truss rod as your scale length and fret number will allow.

If you are just going to re paint, dont waste your time stripping it all off. Just scuff sand it and then re prime. Absolutely no need to strip the entire thing.

With lacquer, temperature and airflow dont really affect the way it dries. Since it has to gas off to dry, it just has to happen naturally.

you might not need to shim. Just loosen the screws and turn the neck sideways while the strings are on. This will fix the problem 99% of the time.

The pots wont make a difference, guys. The only thing 500k pots vs 25k for actvies is the taper. It is either all or nothing, no middle ground. that wont have anything to do with the low output.

You probably dont want to use sperzels. You will have to drill different holes.
If you want some better locking tuners, check out the hipshot griplocks. They are great and cost like 60 bucks.
