yo. what's up. i am building a new guitar. i am using an American Standard Strat neck i had laying around. i bought a beautiful SSH Rear Routed blue=>black burst guitar: quilted maple top, swamp ash body. you see, the body came yesterday, and it's one of the most beautiful i have seen. now i'm REALLY excited, and am convinced that this deserves to be the best sounding guitar ever. i am planning to use Fralin vintage hot strat pickups for the single coils, and a Fralin humbucker in the bridge possition. here's the questions i have: What hardware should i use. does it matter? i had a friend that insisted that i should use this special type of bridge that would give me awesome sustain. but does it matter? do the saddles make a difference? what about electronics? it's a 1 volume, 1 tone setup; should i use a 250 or 500k tone pot? any other advice?
