We made a number of them as our first formal production pieces. We'll be formalizing the offering and pricing over the next couple of weeks.

This has nothing to do with the new F-hole option or even recessed controls, but why are there controls for a Volume, Tone, and toggle on a single hum guitar?

Whoa good point I didn't even notice that.

Cool f-hole btw.

This body was made for Nigel Tufnel - He specified a spot for the "more louder" switch:

Nigel: "So, I said to my Luther 'is there any way to take a single pickup guitar and make it louder - as loud as a double pickup guitar?' "
Interviewer:  "and then he proposed the idea?"
Nigel: "Yes - essentially it kicks in another pickup which is hidden inside the guitar near the back"
Interviewer: <pause> "... but won't that pickup be too far away for it to pickup the strings?"
Nigel: "Well, perhaps in a matter of speaking, but it's the soul of the body that will be picked up"
Interviewer: "and that soul is louder?"
Nigel: "Yes exactly!  More Louder."

Yeah. One of my friends (girl) used to play violin, and of course we joked about f holes and g strings.

Hey Gregg, ya'll ever thought about some different shape "F" holes. The traditional ones look cool, but how about a bit of creativity.  The VIP would look way cooler with something a bit more modern... :headbang1:

When I press the customize button, it lets me add a neck pickup option.

Otherwise...you could wire in a kill switch? Or a coil tap?

Oooo I agree with doug. The idea of double lightning bolt f-holes (ala Jesse "the devil" Hughes) is mighty appealing to some of us in the more 'outrageous' category of Warmoth lovers

Would F-holes on a chambered body be purely cosmetic, or will it make a substantial change in the sound?

LOL, yea.
A girl comes up to me at work the other day and just throws out "Are F-holes cool"?
No how you doing, no nothin'.

Really hard to keep a straight face, "Oh yea definitely, love em" I say.
