hey i was looking at the warmoth website and i was thinkin of making an explorer style guitar and was wondering how easily you can put em together (i was also wondering if you can easily put in EMG actives or if i should stick with the passive pickups) and how they sound compred to the ESP EX 400 and the Dean lack gold Z.

Thanks

I think they'll put them together for you if you buy a whole set.

^No, they won't. You have to do it yourself. If you've never installed a pickup or done any guitar repair, I wouldn't suggest trying to jump in and put an entire instrument together right off the bat. It's not difficult, but it's not a good way to learn.

It shouldn't be too hard if you're handy with a screw-driver and soldering gun.



Pretty much says it.

As for quality, they easily match/exceed the 400 and deluxe series from LTD. Careful though, it can get expensive fast.

If you want to keep the cost down, order everything you want as far as body/neck and shot for all the hardware on the used market. Also, if you know how to finish a body (paint it that is), you can save yourself at least $100 if you do the paint/seal yourself.

On the other hand, if you can afford all the bells and whistles, you won't be dis-pleased with a warmoth.


Oh yeah, one other thing to watch out for. If you want a 24 fret neck, they do theirs a little funny. They use a 22 fret neck and put a 24 fret fret-board on it. This makes a little 2 fret "over-hang" on the bottom of the neck. Just letting you know.

They make really nice stuff. It can be expensive you start adding alot of options. But no you gotta do the assembly. And if youve never done any guitar work not a good way to start.
