comment Do I need humbucking pickups?
There's still the option of having a humbucker installed with the option of coil-tapping it.

comment Do I need humbucking pickups?
String gauge will come into play for feel, especially if you downtune, not much more tonally. It would be more effective to find the closest pickup height that has the most gain without pulling the string or losing any definition.

Ha, I hadn't actually seen you linked to the hook theory as well before I answered myself. It is a great tool.

comment What is the “theory” behind “odd time signatures”?
There's a good chance that just about any Tool song would be a good example. Intolerance, Third Eye, The Pot, Forty Six & 2... Also Them Bones by AiC, 2/3 of everything Soundgarden and possibly 98% of all King Crimson and Mahavishnu.

comment What type of strings to use for easier bending in fast solos?
"Most people say you get "more" tone out of thicker gauges" but Tony Iommi and Ty Tabor use very light strings, for instance. I think the tone issue is more relevant with less distorted blues or classic rock tones than with metal-ish styles. I'd say go for the light gauges for comfort, and wonder about the tone in a couple of weeks/months.
