I'm thinking Dimarzio Area T pickups

Wilkinson Bridge (Is the american to asian string spacing gonna be ok?)

THIS control plate? Should i worry about gold plating wearing off easily?

Anybody with experience or other reccomendations, i'm all ears

I've got the wilkinson bridge on my tele and it's a solid bridge. There's nothing wrong with it structurally. Just don't get dragged in with the improved intonation rubbish it's still only approximate like any other 3 saddle tele bridge. It may not fit your squier because it has a vintage 4 screw layout and if I remember correctly most squiers have a modern 3 screw layout.

I've never seen the appeal of the autotrim tuners. I begrudge paying that much extra for something I could do with no hassle at all with a £2 wire cutter. I'd rather just pay that money for a fantastic set of top end tuners without any bells and whistles.

hmm ok. i'm actually thinking wilkinson EZ loks now, since they seem really solid, i can save money on shipping, and they're like half the price. i'm not too concerned about drilling holes for the bridge if need be, so tsall good. if anyone can attest to the GFS knobs/control plate being solid pieces, i think i'm pretty much ready to order.

All you really need is the saddles, and not the entire bridge plate. With the tuners, if the hole spacing is the same, they'll fit.

I'm thinking Bareknuckle PileDriver pickup set for you tele, will turn it into a monster.

The control plate will most likely fit with no problems.
