Holy crap, this thread is a gold mine of information and DIY.

That strat is looken good, and hand winding your pickups, that's just pure awesomeness.

Nice, it'll be interesting to hear how it sounds. I can see some give in the windings, is that intentional for the sound you want?

I know, which is very surprising, your schooling most of the older guys on these boards.

Keep up the good work.

This is extremely sick. Extremely. I love how you are going all the way doing every last part DIY, down to the pickups. Respect!

I love how you're just getting out there and doin it! I wound a pickup with some wire I stole from a computer monitor once (used an old dead strat pickup for the bobbin). It worked but I haven't mounted it in a guitar and tried it out yet. Low impedance for sure.

I need your help!

Which tremolo is the best choice in your opinion? Budget is 100 $ (130$ after tax and shipping). If it's a must I'll pay more

Yea indeed.
But I'd prefer a vintage 6 point bridge, maybe the VSVG...
