    Hi,
    I've wanted to build my own guitar for along time. I want to build something a bit wacky / funky. Most of the assembly looks straightforward but I am worried about the wiring of the pots / pickups. I am trying to decide whether to go for the warlock or flying v model listed here:

    I like both equally, but which looks the easier to wire? I'm not the most technically minded and I don't think they come with wiring diagrams, but look like good value.
    Any thoughts?

    You could always get someone to do the wiring for you though it's not that hard. Personally I'd go for the V.

    Ok, I just imagine it being a bit complicated when you have 2 pickups, volume + control knobs and a pickup selector switch, but I suppose it is something I should learn. Is there more than one way to do it? ie to get different results sonically?
