What tuners do you plan to use?
I was planning on going with the sg510

S5 style button
45 degree tag
Shaft length – 20mm
Shaft diameter – 6 mm
Bushing diameter - 10 mm
Gear ratio – 1:15

Tbh I am a little confused on the measurements given for the gotoh/grover option in the builder. Would you recommend selecting a different option? Straight 10mm like the planet waves?

Yes, the "Gotoh/Grover" stepped tuner hole does not fit all Gotoh tuners, confusingly.
If your tuners have a straight 10mm bushing you want a straight 10mm hole; I think that's the "Planet Waves" hole
 
Would you recommend selecting a different option?
The Planet Waves (13/32" - 10.32mm) are a shade bigger than 10mm and may be a bit loose with tuners apart from the planet waves.

I would recommend going for the Schaller / Sperzel (25/64" - 9.92mm) which fits most modern Fender compatible tuners, Hipshots etc. It may be that the hole may need to be eased with some sandpaper round a dowel for example. But that then ensures a tight fit etc.
