    Beautiful (X2)
    I love seein' the wood grain on guitars and natural oil finishes.
    Wish I could play 'em.
    Nice work!

    Those are both very nice. The finishes look great on both. Hope they play as nice as they look!

    Beautiful guitar Steve! Tell us a little for your experience with Warmoth, Did you call them or just order everything online?How was the fit and finish of the pieces? Just curious about the experience.

    I order online using the body builder or neck builder and choose the options I want. Warmoth has great customer service and are very helpful if you do call them with questions. All the parts I've bought from them come pretty much ready for finish and I've never had an issue with fit. I've only ever ordered one body that had a finish and it was flawless, of course you pay for that and it's not cheap. That's why I've done my own finish on the rest of them. I've built 7 or 8 Warmoth guitars now.

    Truth. I just finished a Strat body project, perfect fit no problems. Love the guitar builder software. Really happy with Warmoth.

    That's a beauty, man. What did you use for the body finish?

    I bought it used, don't know who made the body. It looks like it just has a light coat of Nitro.

    Here's the strat. Neck is USA Fender '81. Body is Basswood Warmoth. Paint/relic by MJT Guitars.

    I can do w/o but I didn't have them when I took the pic. I have them now....Wolfetone Strat Bitch.

    The Tele I have not decided yet...possibly the SD Hot Rails? (If they fit) Open to suggestions.....

    If it's a Warmoth body it won't fit. I have a Tele neck Hot rails sitting here because it didn't fit.

    It's not a Warmoth body, no stamp in the neck pocket anyway. No marking anywhere it's kind of an odd duck....
