Hi, good luck on your upcoming project.
I'm also making an electric guitar. I have the luck that my dad has 'woodworking' as his hobby, so we have a limited set of powertools at my home. (beltsander, router,...)
This allowed me to start my guitarproject "from scratch".
I'm working on a website to show how I did it, and how i'm doing it.
So all those who are interested in guitarmaking: feel free to go the the following address:
Oh, btw, I ordered my hardware from warmoth.com (see hardware section on the site)
