    Didn't mention it earlier but I think maybe layered curved over straight might look nice to kind of match the tail piece. And in black or...

    Sure.

    There's some Ibanez, ESP, PRS and Schecter guitars (among others) with finishes with the centre natural unstained and a single or two tone burst on the edges.

    On the plus side. In trying to work out if I could change the design to accommodate the bridge I think I've worked out a nicer, and easier, body shape. Basically going to go for a body similar to the...

    You seem to have reversed everything. Bridge and Neck PUs are backward (from a layout point of view). And you have the tone and volume pots the wrong way. The tone pots have the capacitors.
