Red face Luthier Custom "Ibanez AT100 Like"

Hello, guys!

It's my first post in this forum and I'm seeking for any kind of help regarding the build of my new guitar. I never was an Ibanez guy, but yesterday I bought "body+neck kit" inspired on the Ibanez AT100CL (Andy Timmons signature), made by a Brazilian luthier with Brazilian woods. I was not familiar with the model, but it was SO cheap that I had to buy it. The guy who ordered the body and the neck from a luthier gave up the idea of mounting the whole guitar.
So, now I'm with this delightful (but laborious) project...
Coincidentally, I already had one handmade alnico V humbucker for the bridge, two handmade "rails" pickpus for the neck and middle, one set of locking tuners, capacitors, potentiometers, etc.. I also have one vintage tremolo, but it's not Wilkinson like the one on AT100, so I'll probably buy a new one.
I was hoping you guys help me throughout the project, since, as I said, I know just a little about Ibanez guitars.

Re: Luthier Custom "Ibanez AT100 Like"

Here are the body and the neck:

The woods are: Brazilian maple - for the neck); Marupa (which is very similar to Alder tonally) - for the body.

My idea is to finish the neck only with wax or Tru-Oil, since Andy Timmons guitar's finish is very thin. I plan to stain the body wood and wax it (no paint or lacquer).

PS: the guitar is LEFT-HANDED.

My first question is: should I use an output jack like this (above)?
