    Warmoth has ruined me for production guitars

    Thanks for clarifying your meaning. Indeed if you put something together from previously assembled parts or new parts you still have assembled a parts guitar. If you disassemble a guitar to sell the parts that is what is known normally as parting out a guitar.

    Warmoth has ruined me for production guitars

    I wonder if you could clarify when you are saying parts-out guitars it seems from the rest of your post that you have made three guitars from parts? I ask because the term part-out a guitar usually refers to disassembling an already constructed guitar and selling off the individual parts.

    Wiring question. SSS strat, bridge/middle series by default

    If it is a standard 5 way switch it would not be possible.

    Help with EMG 89 SA SA Pickup Set Install

    You really need to provide more information, photographic evidence. But perhaps make sure you go through your connections for the 89 and make sure that the connections are not the reverse of what they should be. It might be better to move the thread to a more relevant sub forum...

    warmoth neck?

    Select the Schaller tuner hole option. Note: Also Warmoth does not drill for tuners screws or the locating pins found on Fender tuners but the Schaller bore will work for you.

    warmoth neck?

    My preference for Warmoth necks is with 6100 SS. But any work on them I do myself. Nuts from Warmoth are fine I would personally recommend TUSQ XL. The slots could be dialled in to suit a particular set up but they are playable out of the box.

    What is the purpose of active pickups?

    You may know this but technically speaking they do not coil split. They have three coils, two side by side, and a third stacked under one of the previous two which is used when selecting the "single coil" mode.

    PSA: Buying some European gear from Thomann and shipping to the US

    Not exactly. 20% is the VAT rate that gets added. So if the VAT on consumer products which is listed as included is then deducted it works out as about 16.67 % less.

    Jimmy page wiring?

    The first diagram is using the term tapped and showing Seymour Duncan pickups. In reality they would be split and the term tap is being used loosely rather then technically correctly.

    Roon seems cool

    @CheckSix and @iowa many thanks for your feedback. It sounds like Qobuz is probably going to be closer to my wheelhouse and compatibility and so forth is something I have been delving into.

    NGD Suhr Indigo

    Thanks, it is interesting though and I was wondering because I saw some of these metallic offerings on a German site which stated a C standard neck and smaller frets than the specs cited at Suhr.com.

    Pickup mounting screws issue

    Both types of screws are available from Warmoth for example compare the S10 and the S13. You need something similar to the S10. https://www.warmoth.com/Blade-Switch-Pickup-Mounting-Screws-C848.aspx
