Guy trying to figure out stuff about building his custom guitar

Hi, Im new to Jemsite, and what better way to introduce myself than starting a new thread?

Anyways, I'm a huge Lynch, and recently I've been wanting to build a guitar that has similar specs as his M-1 Tiger guitar, u know, like only one pickup up and that's a bridge humbucker, solid maple body and one piece maple neck, and a double locking trem. But I don't want it to be just that, I want a little more in there, like scallopped neck, reverse jackson headstock, and a sustainer. So with all of this, I have a few questions.
1.) I'm ordering the body from warmoth, and it's the soloist style body. I'm also ordering the neck from warmoth, will they be compatible? Or do i have to mod it on my own?
2.) will the fernandes sustainer's battery box fit into a warmoth battery box slot?
Any answer that might help is greatly appreciated. Thanx

If you want to get close to the M1 specs, go with more of a Strat/Charvel single hum body style. That's what the original M1 used.

Warmoth bodies and Warmoth necks should work together as long as you order the matching heel and heel cut.

As for the Sustainer box, measure, and ask Warmoth for the measurements of their battery box cutout.
