So I was at a local pawn shop yesterday and played a guitar that was made with a Warmoth body, and I got the idea to do my own build. Since the body was alot higher quality than anything I could build, I think im going to buy one of their bodies, as well as their neck. Seeing as how this will cost me about 200 bucks apiece, is there anywhere to get the rest of the parts cheaper? Here is my plan so far:

Body:
Warmoth Alder Strat, HH route, rear routed with holes for one volume and one tone, three way switch

Neck:
Warmoth Maple on Maple with the warmoth headstock 3+3 satin finish, thin like the wizard Ibanez

Pickups:
Not sure, this is going to be my heavier guitar because I have my strat for blues and lighter rock. Any suggestions?

Hardware:
Black, fixed bridge, locking tuner

So thats my plan. What does everyone think?

EDIT: Priced everything out when buying everything from warmoth, comes out to $225.00 USD for the body and $283.00 USD and the parts total comes out to $252.55

I havn't deided on the finish yet. If the body turns out with a good grain, i might stain it a little darker and clear coat it, but if it turns out not so great, ill probably do just a black or white finish. I have a thing for white guitars with black hardware

well, as for parts... if you decide to skimp out on quality, i guess you can go to guitarfetish.com
