    so i cant let hannaugh have all the fun with his warmoth build. its just in the infant stages but here we go.

    basswood flat top lp body normal controls p90xHB set up. nothing fancy b/c i want to save some money and do the fancying myself.

    Side: (i personally did the comfort grooves to my liking, once again to save money and add personalization)

    you can see jonesy's caps wired up to some rs super pots in the back.

    im kind of in limbo now waiting for my paints in the mail and waiting for the neck and i feel like i have nothing to do. they are addicting and i kind of already dont want it to be over.

    its going to be a bit of a surprise color per say. and although the basswood does have a pretty nice grain to it, it will probably not be showing.

    well the paints came today but....
    as my luck would have it.....
    they sent the wrong stuff:rolleyes:

    this also sucks b/c i was going to bring samples to mirabella so he can get the notion of what im doing with the body so he can coordinate the neck work to it.

    That sucks... I know the feeling though, I'm going to have to get some cherry nitro and use it instead of the dye I wanted to use because of some weird things going on with the grain on my BFG.

    Wating makes the pay off all the more awesome, though. :D

    a quick call to the place and they got everything fixed up and threw in some goodies along with "expedited shipping" (i hope this means 2 day/over night b/c i dont feel like waiting another week for this to get rolling again) i was able to keep what i had an i may do something with it tonight to show you guys where im heading.
