I'm going to start building a Casino-esque guitar. It's mostly for a science project at school, but I've always been wanting to build a guitar. I'm probably gonna use maple for the body and I'll probably order the neck off of Warmoth or something. Any suggestions? Like for what kind of pickups I should use, I'm thinking P-90 in the neck and a humbucker in the bridge. Any particular humbuckers I should look at?

thats cool. I wanna do this too. If u do use maple, i would try and get a body blank off warmoth or get a large peice of maple at least 4 inches thick maybe and a peice for a top. to make it easier to do the back and sides. Make sure u have access to at least a band saw and a router, and a power sander to make things easier. Plan things out well, and make sure u cut things right. good luck! get some pics up of ur ideas at least. and btw, Warmoth does their necks to a Strat neck pocket, so get the dimensions right. And a stop-tail setup requires a tilt in the pocket. Pickups should be, depending on what kind of music u play, a Gibson P-94 (humbucker-shaped P-90( and a '57 classic. They are expensive, but great-sounding.

I'll probably put a Bigsby on it too, forgot to add that.

Have you done any research on hollowbody construction yet?

Yes, actually. I might just do a solid body guitar, I don't think I'm experienced enough to do a hollow or semi hollow now.
