As a note, enlarging the holes for pots is extremely easy. Get a good reamer from a hardware store (about $5) and go nice and slow and you can enlarge it enough for a non-metric pot. And you can...

I'd keep the HD500 and sell the amp on Craigslist. The HD500 can take the place of the amp and has the advantage of being headphone compatible as well.

Pretty sure I see a black wire that isn't soldered to anything in the first picture. That might be the missing ground which is causing all the electrical hum.

My Tribute+ has an actual maple cap. Doesn't have a nitro finish, but I personally think that nitro finishes are overrated.

I had good luck with Tru-Oil as a finish. Easy to apply and looked good even without final sanding.

I'd also recommend the Seymour Duncan Hotrodded Humbucker set (SH4/SH2) pickups.
