I have a stratocaster copy body and a loaded pickguard for it. I need to get a better neck, an input jack, a bridge, and bolts for the neck. Anyone know any good ways to get my hands on this stuff thats relatively inexpensive? Also the body is set up for a traditional strat tremelo arm and I want to set it up with either a more stable 80's style whammy or a fixed bridge. Anyone know anything about options for a strat body? I've always had fixed bridge gibson style guitars.

warmoth.com will certainly have options and be able to send you various types of parts, it may not be the cheapest option though

allparts.com also has necks, and such.
Their base prices seem to be a bit steeper than warmoth, though.

Also, nifty Gov't Mule related user name there, dolphineus.....

The best deals on guitar parts are here: http://www.guitarfetish.com/. The quality is decent (not top-notch, but good) and the prices are great.

You may have to do some routing to upgrade the trem, especially if you want to install a Floyd Rose. I'm assuming that's what you meant by "80's style". It can be done, but it takes some work. You may want to look into ways to make the standard trem work better.

Or you can just block the trem and use it like a fixed bridge - all you need is a small block of wood.
