I've had this guitar for over a month already, but I've finally decided to post some pictures for you all. Here's what came in the mail: (pardon the cell phone pics)



I wonder what Fender has brought for me today



Wow! Never in my life have I seen a Fender like that before!



Oh wait, maybe it isn't a Fender...



That's right, it's a Warmoth!

The specs:
Swamp Ash body with Quilted Maple Top
Goncalo Alves neck
Ebony fingerboard
Stainless steel SUPER JUMBO 6100 frets
Graphtec Graphite nut
Sperzel Locking Tuners
CTS Pots, CRL switch, Switchcraft Jack, etc.
GuitarFetish Hardened steel 2-point Trem with FULL-SIZED STEEL BLOCK and stainless steel saddles
Dimarzio Area '58 in the neck, Area '61 in the middle, Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates in the bridge.

Let me tell you, this thing plays like a dream. It could be a personal bias, but damn, I still haven't touched a guitar that plays like this! Most of it is due to the Goncalo neck. It's unfinished and is SUPER fast since there is virtually nothing on the neck that is slowing you down. And I thought my Jackson neck was fast...

Balance is perfect, the weight is quite heavy, which I like (probably around 7lbs). I designed the guitar to be versatile, and it definitely is! If you've ever heard of all of the hype around the Dimarzio Area series of pickups, believe it! These are amazing pickups. Completely noiseless, yet retain the vintage sound and character of single coils. If you were ever to go noiseless with single coils, don't waste your money on the expensive Kinmans - these are the real deal and are much cheaper! The bridge pickup is just all vintage. I wasn't familiar with playing with PAF-styled humbuckers before this guitar, so it was a big change for me. It has bite and crunch. It's just a sound I can't really describe, but VERY vintage.

I forgot to mention the price of this, and a lot of you are asking.
The grand total was around $1250.

My goal for my dream guitar was to combine the sound of a Strat and a Les Paul, but with the beauty of a PRS. And here it is. I'm very proud of this one. Check out the beautiful natural mask binding that is exclusive to Warmoth guitars:



And the rest of the pics:







I'm really impressed with Warmoth. This is some professional quality stuff. The only non-professional part about this guitar is my soldering But it was my first time...what do you expect. At least it works!

Ah, this is the good part! It costs as much as an American Standard Strat. Around $1250

I didn't expect you to be wearing a t-shirt and jeans while playing it I would've expected this to be played by a middle aged guy wearing a suit at a blues gig.

It still looks great though.

Are my eyes messed up or does the first picture make it look like a PRS?

Here are some pics of it on stage:



The problem with this pic is the Fender Half-Stack. It says you have a Bogner Alchemist 2x12, so I am hoping its hiding in this picture somewhere.

BTW, your guitar looks a lot like one of my favorite most rare guitars ever......


But, I actually like yours better.

Yeah, I own an Alchemist, but the venue there provided the equipment...some SS Fender Frontman half stack In fact I haven't been able to use my Alchemist much for gigs. It's a shame, since I've only been able to use it once on stage.

No offense, TS, this doesn't look PRS-ey. But it's still sexy as hell.


Haha, no offense taken. In my eyes, the binding and the finish/quilt top remind me of a PRS.

Really? I think the finish, binding and gold hardware make it seem like a high-quality PRS standard guitar, but everyone has their own opinions.
