Hardware Shopping List - Help Please
Okay, ...I'm having a custom Jem built and swirled by Herc. But, ...I have to come up with all of the hardware to take the neck and body to a fully finished guitar, so I need your help! I looked on Ibanez Rules site and there are little things here and there all over the place that I don't even know what they are! So, I don't know if I need them or not. I know the big things, but I'm depending on you guys to help me out so I don't miss anything. I'm new to jemsite and have never built a guitar before. I'll have a local tech assemble and do the initial setup. So here's what I know that I need. Please let me know what is missing from this list:
*Clear pickguard (coming from Herc with guitar body and neck)
*Pickups (Evo probably, maybe Evo2 in bridge position)
*LoPro Edge Tremolo (separate components involved beyond bridge itself? What about springs and screws n' such?)
*Input Jack (what all does this consist of?)
*Volume and tone knobs with 5-way switch cover too
*Strap Pins / Locks
That's all I can think of right now. Also, is Ibanez Rules the only place / best place to get this stuff? I don't have any history with this stuff or that vendor, but some of the stuff seems high. And some things I want don't appear (pickup colors and similar).
Thanks a billion! Can't wait till I see the swirl on my new Jem and get it assembled and in action! I picked black, blue, silver, green and possibly a very small accent of gold for the colors, with pyramid inlays, and my personalized logo on the headstock!
