    You can, indeed, get wire like what Sonic said in in auto parts stores in the US, and even cheaper at Harbor Freight if you have one close. I use them more in cabs than guitars because the guages...

    I use one of these. $.60 at Harbor Freight. You can lock the blade to the length you want. McCreed's device is better, but I found this shortly after I failed at trying to make one like it.

    Welcome, John. I am also in the US. Kit looks good. A tight fit on the neck is good. Great pup choice. The CTS pots will require enlarging the holes a little. Curious what stain Adam recommended?

    The rule of thumb is that you use 500K pots with humbuckers and 250K pots with single coils. It's just a rule of thumb, and not a bad one in my limited experience. Single coils can have a fairly...
