Just keep thinking, looking, and, learning. I've been crusin around the warmoth site daily since 2004 and my idea on my ideal guitar has changed alot, First I go by "sound" tone woods, hardware, pickups you know the sound i'm looking for. Then by "feel" scale length, radius, back contour, comfort contours, fret wire, nut width, string spacing width on the bridge end, then "logic" what don't I need or use, tone knobs, neck pickup, you know stuff like that. Then I go by "looks" what body shape would inspire me most, what head stock, what finish on the body colors, laminates, hardware color, inlay choices.....I know I'm going to keep my dream guitar semi simple, inspiring, playing and sounding good. Also go by what things on what guitars you've played in the past and liked. Do research on the parts on those guitars and base yours off that. My fav playing guitars are the old jackson dinkys from 95 and the 1988 HM strat. Both have very flat radius so I'm going with a strait 16 inch. Both had thin necks so i'll go with a wizard contour. Both had jumbo wire but not extra jumbo. So i'll go with the jumbo SS frets. Also the Dinky had a 16 inch radius but with a schaller bridge with a 10 inch radius and I always thought the action was a little weird on that guitar. So I'm going with a fender two screw trem so I can match the radius with the saddles. Also I played a charvel once with a pau ferro board with maple neck and really dug the tone so I;m going with a pau ferro board on maple. Every one knows that black korina is the king of tone woods for a body so I'm going with that. I also need 24 frets so I'm going with the soloist body. I also really dig the CBS head stock like on those high end charvels so I'm going with that. This is for my dream guitar tuned in standard. My priority is a baritone neck which I'm ordering first.
