  1. Here is another interesting video about the topic. Tim just recently put this up and while I still think there is a lot to do with human error between strums and what not, it's a really interesting experiment. I'm personally in the camp that there is definitely some affect, though not much, and as he notes here, tone is entirely subjective so no hard feelings toward either argument.
  2. Could be a number of things. Check the wiring diagram to make sure it's wired up properly. Check your solder joints and make sure everything is connected properly. Check the impedance of the pickup with an ohm-meter or multi-meter. Wire the pickup in a circuit directly to an output jack(find a diagram online to make sure it's done correctly) to make sure the pickup itself is working. If the pickup works, bypass the switch to check if it's good. Then bypass other components to see if there is a problem there, however, if the bridge pickup outputs just fine then the other components are probably fine. Those are the steps I'd go through but I'm still fairly new to the guitar building/repair game myself. If anyone else has more or better advice then let's hope they chime in. Good luck!
  3. It sounds like you have an output signal wire shorting to ground, hence the loud buzz that sounds like touching(shorting) the tip of an open guitar cable. Check the current wiring against a schematic that has the same setup, Seymour Duncan has a bunch of these. Could be the output jack shorting itself out, or could be a wire that has been damaged and exposed and causing a short.
  4. There is nothing wrong with leaving the neck full width. It will be just as strong as a narrow tenon.
