Looks like another sad top routing story


Senior Member
Tell me there was a good reason to top rout this one.

Be better rear route, but at least on that one the pickguard won't be covering up most of the interesting grain/figuring....
I like it the way it is. If it was rear routed the single coils would have the strange "open" look you get, not very strat like. The most important stripe will still be very visible with a pickguard on so its not a problem. I think the sadder thing is that Warmoth have finished it themselve rather than leaving it to be oiled by one of us!
Gold anodized pickguard with black PU covers, black knurled metal knobs, black bridge and jackplate is what that body cries out for....
