Custom Jazzmaster


New member
Hi all. This is my second Warmoth build. First time painting a guitar body, and first time owning a chambered body. It's crazy light and extremely comfortable to hold & play. I play live a fair amount when it's not pandemic out, so I like the idea of less weight on me on-stage. I'm always blown away by the good folks at Warmoth :yourock:. I configured and paid for the body and neck on 5/7, and even with a closure due to the pandemic, I received my custom body, neck, and the other stuff in almost exactly 4 weeks (ordered 5/7, received 6/10). That's impressive. :hello2: Everything showed up in perfect condition, and with all the correct stuff. It took me 3 days to complete. I painted the body with automotive paint that I had mixed and put into spray cans. I did primer, pure white base, blue pearl midcoat, & 2k Satin clear. To shoot it, I built a spray booth in my garage out of an EZ-Up, plastic sheeting, and of course....duct tape. Simple but extremely effective. It even had power for additional lighting.

This guitar is straight-up amazing. Sounds awesome, feels awesome, plays awesome...I love this guitar.
