Here I thought Birmingham was in Alabama! (While Dueling Banjos play in the background)
If you haven't discovered already, there are plenty of information here to inform you on your build. Be sure to post up some pictures.
I'm looking into Bill Lawrence's Wilde Pickups (http://wildepickups.com/) for my SX, specifically the L-280TN & L-290TL NF Singles for my self. Great prices for great sounding hand wound pups.
Good luck on your build.
