Though, I'm not too handy. Thankfully my dad is and will be helping me.

It's not going to be completely from scratch though

Heres what im thinking:

Alder Soloist Body: hardtail, string through, one pickup, prerouted, then we will drill a space for one volume knob

Warmoth Neck: 6150 fret size, reverse KWS style, maple fretboard and neck.

Planet Waves Tuners

Gotoh tuneomatic bridge

500k potentiometer

a black knob

some wiring

copper sheilding

a mono jack (i dont know if i need stereo or mono )

some string ferrules

a jack plate

Anything else i'm missing?

what bolts do i use to drill the neck into the body?

I'm a total noob at this stuff

mono jack unless its gonna be an active pup.

I'd just get a body from Warmoth or USA Custom Guitars

reranch.com/reranch is your friend

I get parts from:

stewmac.com
guitarpartsresource.com
monteallums.com
warmoth.com
ebay.com (occasionally)
usacustomguitars.com

Any questions PM me I'm building one right now and so far everything is going very very well. It is my first build, but I consider myself pretty handy and have pretty good knoweledge about guitars, part availability, compatability, mechanics...

stewmac does rip you off on some stuff, not on other stuff, so the key is to shop around before you hit "add to cart"
