Building an Uli Jon Roth Sky Guitar with 36 frets

Been wanting to do one of these for a while now - its an Uli Jon Roth Sky style Guitar.
36 frets on a Maple cap neck, 6 strings for now - will do a 7 or 8 string version when I am happy with the build. I am not scalloping the fretboard as I am not a fan of that style - the electronics will be an issue as these is a humbucker placed under the fretboard on the upper register (I am thinking of 3 Bare Knuckle Warpigs to much derision by my colleagues!). I am also going to include a Strat style bridge with piezo's in the saddles. Sails of Charon anyone...
