Default Saltwater Rod Build

Well after alot of contomplation i have decided that instead of buying my Saltwater rod i have decided i want to build it as it allows me to build it to my standards and spec.
I havent built a rod before so will use this thread to ask questions and advice
i'll be buiding a 3wt trout rod before building my saltwater rod
first of i am going to buy a Sage Xi3 9ft 9wt blank or a 10wt Sage One ( color Black and Titanium )
i want the guides to be solid titanium if possible
colors will be Blue/Titanium
I want to turn the cork myself as am picky how the handle feels
Cost isnt much of a issue as i will build it slowly and want the best i can
I would like a fighting butt

What are your suggestions and where is the best place to purchase the parts

Many thanks
Live,Love,and Fish
