ok my plan is to completely build a guitar out of scraps from my local thrift shops or junk around the house just for fun. My first step is making a pickup i have seen alot of ways to make a lot of different types of pick ups, i am looking to make single coil type pick ups so and suggestions on where to start with this i was thinking maybe something like this.

please give any suggestions or tips possible i will be keeping this updated most likely just so i can keep track.

OK so i think this maybe my new pick up method because it seems easier and cheaper, which is the point of the guitar. http://www.diyhappy.com/how-to-make-a-guitarbass-pickup/

Are you going to actually make, say, the neck and fretboard from scratch too? Out of a baseball bat or something?

Dude... prison guitar... Ok well that looks totally cool. May I suggest old furniture for the wood? Just go around on garbage day looking for old **** people throw out. A kid at my old school made a guitar for 15 bucks once... He used all **** he made himself. It was cool.
