You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

In the last pic, it doesn't look like a quilted top. It looks like a 3A flame maple top.
Are you sure you bought the right wood? Good luck anyways, I'm sure it will turn out great.

you just need some pickups with four cables. i think there's even a thread on UG somewhere with pictures showing you how to get four cables from two...

Push Pull has to do with the pot. Jhachey22 is right.

Looks like Casper! Nice work so far. I'm interested to see how it turns out.


GFS are mostly 4 wire humbuckers, so they are coil splittable.

They also sound great and are cheap as hell.
All my photobucket pics are dead so no links to my guitar build threads.

personally i think he headstock should have more of an ibanez shape to it or at least a pointier shape, it looks odd with that body shape

otherwise a very nice build so far

Also, that isn't quilted maple, it is flamed maple. Still looks rockin though!

HH with coil tapping, that way you can have 2 humbuckers, or I guess 4 singles if you want. Maybe just coil tap the neck, cause singles in the bridge are sorta... well In my opinion useless.
