I'm planning to build my own custom guitar this year.
I know all the specs I'd like and will buy the parts from Warmoth, but I have some questions about the possibility of getting this wired (..and working).
I'm absolutely no hero in wiring (in fact I've never done this before) but if necessary I can get someone to do it for me.
The following things I had in mind for my HSH Strat (with pickguard):
- A DiMarzio Air Norton in the neck position, DiMarzio YJM middle pickup and DiMarzio ToneZone in the bridge with a volume knob and two tone knobs for the Norton and ToneZone with push-pull possibility for splitting it into singlecoils and one tone knob for the YJM;
- Instead of the traditional five-way switch, I thought three mini-switches to activate/deactive each PUP would be nice (I can't imagine how a ToneZone and Air Norton would sounds together).
What do you guys think?

Also: I heard there is a difference between coil-tapping and coil-splitting? What's this all about?

Thanks !

A coil tap is basically an overwound single coil. A coil split divides a humbucker's coils in two, giving a single-coil sound.
