For the record guys, I've taken covers on and off multiple times, the easiest way (especially if you don't care about the cover itself) is to use a dremel like someone suggested and cut the...

Eastwood makes a replica of that guitar, so if you can't find vintage parts you should be able to find eastwood parts that fit fairly well.

DC resistance will allow you to test for continuity. Resistance is measured in ohms. So if your coil is good, you should expect 2k-7k (or there abouts, depends on the pickup) ohms resistance. The k...

First and foremost, get a multimeter. Then it'll be an easy test of weather or not the coil has continuity. Before you go rewinding a vintage pickup that could be possibly, just fine.

Well I'd hate to see an amp hacked up just because the power tranny went. Can you find a new one and replace it? Seems like that'd be much more rewarding.

Noise gate goes at the very beginning of the chain. None of your pedals should create noise, they only amplify the noise created by your guitar. What guitar do you have?

Digital isn't the way to go in this case I don't think. Check out the danelectro chili dog octave. It does one octave down and two octaves down. But it's pretty dirty, not great below say A.

So Your total thickness will be 1.5"? That's fine. Original fender duo sonics were that thick. You should cut your neck pocket to a depth that allows you to get a correct height with your bridge.

Try touching the leads to the two terminals of a guitar lead (connected to an amp obviously) and see if you get signal. You certainly don't want to run power through a dynamic mic.
