Okay I've decided to build a guitar for fun, because it'll take me that long just to save up the money I need after recent happenings.

I'm planning to buy most of my gear through www.wdmusic.com (Unless people have bad experiences).

My question is, other than a neck and a body, what will I need? (I know some of the things, but a complete and comprehensive list would be great! [Even down to the screws I need]).

Please don't write another list once one is up there, if you see something more it needs on it just please copy and paste their list and add your bit at the bottom. Start with what I have.

*Edit* Will also update on the pricetag

Guitar Parts List

[ ] Strat Replacement Body - Alder Unfinished
[ ] Strat Replacement Neck - Rosewood or Maple?

No that's fine it's exactly what I want, there needs to be no assumed knowledge whatsoever. I'm going to reformat this when I'm done and pass it on to someone, because I reckon it's quite useful, the last thing you'd want to do is begin building your guitar only to find you'd left your tuning pegs out of the order

Okay now to expand on this, pick one of the parts on the checklist and expand it to a specific Item. Don't be afraid of prices and link to the part your picking, it doesn't need to be on that site but if it can be bought from there its better.
Should I go with a Rosewood or Maple neck?
