I envy you, Orpheo.
I made my order on December and haven't received a shipping confirmation yet.
Don't say you just can't wait, please  :laughing7:

Hey Gregg, can you help me to have my order shipped?  :binkybaby:

Fanfeckingtastic Orpheo!
It's making my eyes hurt! normal people plan their Warmoth projects one at a time.. unless you are called either Jack or Orpheo.. not fair.

en het ergste is dat ik dit nu waarschijnlijk weer twee keer moet aanzien!  :sad:;)

haha, zal ik, zal ik zal ik? zal ik t op gitaarnet gooien? ;) ghehe gun ik ze daar wel :D

i have to say, this build went like a charm, for almost the entire way, but around 8 pm, I made a terrible mistake. I tore the earthwire, and the stud just wouldnt move! i fixed it, by drilling the hole back from the cavity outwards to the stud, and through the stud itself. now, the earth wire is locked between the insert in the body and the stud of the tailpiece, instead of stud and body.

the wenge neck really howls, its true! the padouk is a bit 'dry' right now, but I think that will be ok after playing a few times with sweaty hands in a smokey bar (until 1/7/2008 haha).
