    - Warmoth flame maple neck. -Warmoth chambered single bound body. -Texas Special pickups. -Graphtech nut. -brass saddles in ashtray bridge. Whoever built this lost money on the build because I picked it up for $499 in immaculate condition. Everything is spot on and can't find any issues, nada, zilch. Kudos to the builder for an outstanding build:D

    Looks fantastic. Warmoths are great guitars, but resale value is low. Congrats.

    Great find. I would have paid $400 for the gorgeous looking body. Or the neck for that matter.

    I hope it sounds great too!

    Love the flamed look on the section of headstock and neck in the picture. Warmoth makes some beautiful guitar parts.

    ...easily. The body alone is around $750 with all hardware and no pickups. You would have to spend around $1500 to get this new today,. in pieces.

    This is why every time I contemplate selling my Hybrid Strat bodied tele, I just hang on to it. Warmoth body, neck, and pickguard with Texas Specials and funky switching to wring out all sorts of tones.

    When ya lay down $499US ya get some great partscaster value when it comes from Warmoth and has been assembled w/ care.
    Happy day.
    Peace - Deeve

    Classy! Love that curly maple neck. EVO frets? I've spent over $600 each putting together my two partscasters, and that was with building my own body from scratch. Great score!
