Hi everyone!

First of all, let me introduce myself: I'm Mick from Germany and this is my first Warmoth custom order. I'm currently with COVID and under quarantine, so I have time to scavange the parts necessary to build my parts-caster.

I really like how the neck turned out. Although I ordered a flame maple one, the wood has some flamey and also burly characteristics, which I did't expect. It almost looks like marble on the head stock, I think the glossy coating hepls with the impression.

Enjoy the pics,
Mick

That finish is just incredible. They have a really good paint department haha. My first 'real' guitar was a Fender USA strat in the same color as the back of that guitar, it's still my number 2 (after my Warmoth Mooncaster)

Very nice guitar, I love it.
 
That reminds me to take some photos of the finished guitar and put it in a the "gallery" thread.
I'll put the link in here.
