    Check out the luthiers corner section of this forum(where this thread belongs) Subscribe to the MIMF (free) and read their new builders faq. Look through their archives(need to be logged in). Get a good book or two, make your own electric guitar by Hiscock is the generally recomended book, but there are some other good books out there too. read as much as you can then go for it.
