I found the ibanez site to be extremely helpful. They have the wiring diagrams for every guitar they make. So just find the pickup/switch/knob configuration you want, and look for it.

As for guitar body construction, there are no hard and fast rules. You’ll want to shape it to be comfortable to play, and I always make sure it balances well on a strap. Otherwise they easily get ‘Neck heavy’ and will tilt down at an uncomfortable playing angle.

Oh, and be VERY careful when mounting the bridge. If you’re off a bit, you won’t be able to intonate it, making it impossible to keep it in tune.

Good luck!
