As for wood, a low cost option is birch plywood... I tried it on my first axe, expecting it to sound sound like **** but it is awesome sustainwise... It really confuses me. Anyway, I got a body blank's worth for $15

Didn't Kerry King use MGs at some point?

I think he just endorses them because he likes sacks of money

Anyways, Stewmac is a good place for parts and tools. Guitarfetish is good for getting budget pickups that sound good and hardware that is pretty good.

I would use popular for the body, which is a fantastic wood thats pretty cheap (go to your local lumber yard and ask for "furniture or instrument grade wood"). Also as before mentioned Guitar Fetish sells hardware, pickups, etc. at fantastic prices. Get Melvyn Hiscox's book "Build Your Own Electric Guitar" he goes very indept.

And post progress here for us!
