That’s cool!

Scale is a huge factor when striving for Jer-like tones. You are going for a “Jerry inspired” guitar so you have wiggle room to get creative. If you are able to go from p90’s to strat pickups in the event you want to change down the road, that would be even better.

Keep us posted, ask a lot of questions!

To this day, I'm haunted by an experience I had playing, and listening to others play, one of Bill Chapin's Strata-Houla guitars with a 24.625" scale. If I hadn't know the scale length, I'd have sworn, based on the tone, it was 25 1/2". It is the one and only 24 3/4 (well, almost) scale guitar I've played ever that sounded to my ears like a true Strat. I have no idea how he pulls it off.

Damn almost 400 views and nobody can give me opinions on firebird pickups, the best builders, pickups configs, comments on my guitar idea ... ? :cry: :P
Look at all these great responses. Sometimes a gentle reminder is all we need. :P
