Just ordered my 2nd Warmoth build


New Member
It's been 13 years since I've posted here, ever since I built my Gilmour Tribute Strat back in 2008.  So, it's about time for another build!

I wanted to have something that looked really classy, but be a kick-ass shred machine.

Here are the specs on what I'm about to order:

Swamp ash body from the showcase
Universal pickup route
Black-Red-Black sunburst on front and back
Routed for Gotoh 510 tremolo

Black/white/black pickguard

Maple neck from the showcase
Rosewood fingerboard, 22 frets
SS6100 jumbo stainless frets
Standard thin
LSR nut
Gold metal Warmoth decal

Gotoh 510 tremolo
Schaller locking tuners
1 volume, 1 tone
All gold hardware including gold dome knobs, gold trem, tuners, neck plate and all the screws

HSH pickup configuration, it will be wired like Steve Vai's Green Meanie:
Position 1=neck; position 2=middle+inner coil of neck humbucker; position 3=middle pickup; position 4=middle+inner coil of bridge humbucker; position 5=bridge
Bridge Pickup:  DiMarzio Mo'Joe, white with gold polepieces
Middle Pickup:  DiMarzio HS-2, white
Neck Pickup:  DiMarzio PAF Joe, white with gold polepieces

Here's a mock-up of what it will look like:


Does anyone know what the current lead time is for receiving orders from Warmoth?  I'm ordering both the body and the neck that are already in-stock, so I'm thinking maybe a month, maybe two?  Does that sound about right?

Sounds like it's going to be a cool axe! I love a good sunburst on a strat.

As for the time table, I would expect it to take longer than usual, so maybe a couple months?
