okay, so im building a very unique, but typical single humbucker guitar w/ strat style trem. is there an exact measurement the fretboard needs to be on the body or can i be any distance onto the body. and the humbucker(bridge), does it need to be so far back from the neck and so close to the trem or can it just flow back there? thanks a lot

if you are asking this question and i understand you correctly, i don't think you are ready to build a guitar.

pickups are usually placed along the scale length at certain nodes. placement for humbuckers is not critical. the fretboard can extend as far onto the body as you like, provided that the frets and nut are located at the proper distances along the scale length relative to the saddles.
