    Don't take this the wrong way but "best" is what YOU think is best...not us.

    That said, your questions are certainly genuine and you will get lots of good input from the fine folks on this site. IMHO opinion the answers, speaking in general terms, would be;
    D'Addario 10-46
    Neck
    HS Filtertron

    I hope that you will use a flashy color on it... The single PU and the shape truly deserves it

    A+!

    If you get a chance try some Pinot Noir from Central Otago in the South Island of New Zealand. The unusual climatic conditions there produces award-winning Pinots. Of course, I have conducted extensive (and expensive) research both on location and at my local wine cellar! ;):cool:

    1. TI Bebop(round wound) 11s.
    2. Pick up positioning would depend on the genre I'm aiming at, I reckons. As it stands, I like having 2 pick ups. On my Les Paul, I like to play rhythm stuff on the bridge, and lead stuff on the neck. On my 6120, I like to keep it in the middle position, and choose which pickup to play leads on. Then again, I also like to use the selector switch a la Pete Townshend
    3. I like PAFs, Filtertrons, P90s, Dynas, and Staples.

    Very impressive. I like blue but have not been interested in a blue guitar. But this blue is changing my mind.

    Oh, If it was my guitar, I would have gone for a more "Flashy" color, even a "Flake" or "Sparkle" finish instead of that nonetheless nice "Natural Blue Translucent". But OK, it's not my guitar and it's me :oops:...

    The round binded soundholes are as nice as unseen, so is the chequered pattern on the sides, the headstock and the tailpiece.

    Good...

    A+!

    Well, I think it looks somewhat huge due to the peculiar offset shape of the body, in a size that is larger than the regular Bo Diddley "Cadillac".

    This guitar has something "marine" with that translucent blue and bubble holes...

    Interesting shape though, and interesting idea also for the bridge : a groved fret.

    A+!

    I have something totally different in mind ... don't ask me why ... The Jetsons ;)

    Somehow 50ies science fiction designs come to my mind.
