Both my first completed Warmoth and my first Telecaster.

Hard ash body
Maple neck with ebony fretboard
Bridge pickup is a Fender Vintage Noiseless, neck pickup is a Swineshead Dragonfly (reverse polarity, so the middle position is extra 'quacky').
Wired up so the two controls are separate volumes for each pickup.

I had intended this to be just a backup light rhythm guitar, but since I finished this I've not touched any of my other guitars. The tone of this guitar is incredible and I'm attributing most of that to the Warmoth body and neck. This guitar sustains almost as well as most of my Les Pauls - I've not had an ash-bodied guitar before, and this certainly won't be my last if this one is anything to go by. Won't be my last Warmoth either

Going to try and record sound clips or test video soon. The neck tone is unbelievable.

Really, really nice guitar

I like the contrasting neck pickup a lot as well as the markerless board and corian nut. They all add little bits to an already classy instrument.

Word.

Hard Ash is very overlooked IMO. Try tuning that guitar down to C. Don't change the strings, just drop it and go for it, I guarantee it'll make you smile.

It may not be the "loudest" wood, but Ash has really awesome definition when tuned down.

I don't have any of the tools for that sadly. I think the next Warmoth I do I might at least finish myself though, since I've had a specific burst stuck in my head for a couple of years and Warmoth won't do it.

The total I paid Warmoth was $951.36, including the shipping to the UK. Then once it got here I had to pay another £132 in import & VAT charges.

That's not including the cost of the pickups, which I bought one from Swineshead direct and the other I got off ebay.

It would have been a little cheaper, but I did splash out on a couple of extra expensive things like Planet Waves Auto-Trim Locking tuners. The black hardware cost more than basic nickle/chrome hardware of course.

In total, it cost me about the same as a Fender American Deluxe Telecaster would have. Of course the trade off is I got exactly the right wood species, finish, hardware and electronics I wanted, rather than just whatever is stock on the Fenders.

The truth is, I was going to order with with an all-maple neck. However, when Warmoth finish an all-maple neck they leave the finish on the frets, witht he assumption that you're going to have a fret dressing done. I couldn't be bothered to do a fret dressing (and it turns out it doesn't need it anyway, no sharp or flat notes anywhere) so I got it with an ebony fretboard instead, that way they wouldn't put finish on the fretboard and the fretwire would stay clean.
