    Any ideas of what sizes heat shrink should be bought for the three different stages it's used in?

      no idea, i just guess.

      The smallest is just the smallest i can get. I think it's about 1/16th of an inch. The next up is about 3/16" or maybe 5/8". The final one is probably about 1/4". It just depends a bit on what size wire you are splicing. It's not an exact science because the stuff shrinks by up to 60% (linear) so as long as it's big enough to go over the wire and shrink to contain it you're OK...

        Thanks again!

        This is by far one of the most useful threads for any guitarist looking to get to know their axe a lil more.
