Hi Guys! this is my first post and I write form Italy.
These are the pices of my first warmoth project and they came all from the screaming deals section of the showcase. I was very lucky witn them. I have looked at them for one month and when there were in sales I bought them!
All are wonderful! Let's see the specs
- Body: Black Korina (4,8 lb.) with quilted maple top finished in black cherry burst. Routed in HSH config and Wilkinson tremolo bridge.
- Neck: Warmoth pro construction in Birdseye maple with ebony fingerboard. 6150 frets and Graphite nut. Drilled for Schaller tuners. Finished in Vintage gloss.
- Pickguard from Warmoth in black Pearl
Pick to mount are Dimarzio Tone Zone (bridge), Fender American Standard (middle), Dimarzio Air Norton (neck)
Now I don't have yet the bridge and the Schaller locking tuners so I can't begin assembly my beast.
What do you think abot theese?
BYE!!! :guitarplayer2:

You're lucky. I nearly bought that body a few months ago, But i decided to go with the green one cause Doc already had 2 like that and I needed to be different  :toothy12:

Actually Curtis, I only have one.  I sent back the twin.  I wanted to be different, too.

IMO, black would look best.
Chrome gives me too much visual detail between the finish and pickguard, but black is a bit more subtle.
I assume that your going with black pickup covers?
