Music Man stingray neck and body options, and pickguards (or go to wdmusic.com )  and control plates, and bridges, but those are also available at wd

the six bolt neck joint would be a plus to, but not necessary.

i would like to make one with a wenge neck and a jx5 rothstien setup and a emg hz mm.

Ernie Ball has taken legal action against Warmoth before for use of the shapes, and aren't they with Music Man?

Anyways, 2.5 years is a good way to forget about things :p

Anyone heard from Schmoop lately?

Now that the EVH Wolfgang is made by Fender, can we get that body style?

Just go with the G4 shape.  It's sexier anyway.

From Fender, the license pertains to replicating the shape of the headstocks.  The Tele, Strat, and other older body styles were never granted the legal protection because they waited too long to do so.  I would bet Fender learned that lesson and the newer bodies like the EVH are patented (possibly by EVH himself).  As I read the current license, there is nothing in there about the EVH body shape.  If protected, that would require another license, IMO.

FWIW, there's other manufacturers out there making EBMM EVH body styles.  They have Fender neck pockets too so your Warmoth neck would fit on it.
