How do I ensure I can get Warmoth do make me a thicker body, is there an option? Sorry I am confused, are you saying that the STANDARD Warmouth body is thicker than normal Gibson SG body? Thanks ~ Ted :icon_thumright:
SG bodies are 1-5/8 inches thick at the end pin. Warmoth bodies are 1-3/4 inches thick. They will do a thinner SG for you though, for a modest upcharge. Personally, the delight of an SG is its thin body. A reason I like the L6s is its thin body too - only 1-1/2 inches.
Wow.....that is very, very nice. I would love to build a string through baritone SG with a recessed tune-o-matic in matte black. I like the extra thickness on the body. Cross inlays look bad as hell too.
Damn. I so want that thing. I gotta think it's made of the tastiest of tasty parts. I mean, this guy had inside access to some of the highest quality woods extant, detailed by the best craftsmen in the business. Plus, I have a soft spot in my heart for the SG body style. But, I just bought an SG-style Melody Maker. Damn!
I wonder if I could go without food and beer for a month...
