I have recently started a project with a blank body and neck. Where do you guys get your parts? I deal mostly with GuitarFetish and StewieMac... are there any better or cheaper places out there to get hardware?

Hardware: Allparts, amazon and ebay (seriously),
http://www.allparts.com/
http://www.allparts.co.uk/
http://www.warmoth.com/

Wood and tools: Lmi
http://www.lmii.com/

Stewmac has become a reference point for me, whenever I look for more expensive hardware such as bridges and tuners I often look towards ebay and amazon, more often than not I can find better prices.

When looking for tools, people get into guitar luthiery just as quick as they come, ebay is often a great place for mildly used tools.

good idea with the auction places, never thought of that. Since most of Ebay is "buy it now" shop style anyway that would probably be a great resource.

generally i start with an old guitar and restore it or just break apart an existing guitar and swap parts out. This is the first project i am building up and couldn't be more excited. I am going to really try to build out a hotrod. I know i will never get out what i put in but this one is gonna be for me. Hoping to put in a set of Bareknuckle pickups. i will have to post as it gets build. Have an artist lined up to create a sharpie doodle paint job on top of silver matte body. Should get wicked looking.

You arnt going to find good hardware for cheaper than guitarfetish... Their parts are as good as some of the high end stuff for 1/4 the price...
Ebay can be used for name brand parts for much cheaper. than retail price.

They have quality stuff dirt cheap!

It also depends on what you're looking for.
The question was pretty general.
Oh, frack! But, I didn't say frack--I said "THE" word. The F-dash-dash-dash-dash word.
