    lots of places. I buy a lot from Allparts, and also from stewmac, lmii, etc

    I buy pickups and electronics from other places.

    I do not know of any single place that sells everything I want

    I can relate to desiring the ease and convenience of one stop shopping, but you can save a lot of money by buying from multiple places.

    For example, some places have cheaper pickups but more expensive inlays, while another might have more expensive pickups but cheaper inlays
    so you buy the pickups from the first place and the inlays from the second place.

    I'm all about getting the best quality parts I can find for the lowest price. For me, convenience takes a firm back seat to price and quality :)

    It really depends on what kind of parts you want. You also need wood, lacquer, components for grain filling paste... If you want to get everything correct to a '59 it will be expensive and difficult. If you just want parts that fit together, you could try for instance https://www.axesrus.co.uk/?

    See we make it easy for you around here! I agree, that one stop shopping is not always cost effective.
