    Warmoth makes great stuff. They made two 8 string bass necks for me a few years ago.

    That is a beautiful slab of wood. Fantastic grain. What is it?

    I have 2 builds I am working on. One won't get done until spring due to my budget. The one I am currently working on is a HAMMER USA lime green ash body (circa 1986), with the EMGDG20 pickup assembly. The neck I am ordering is the Warmoth Pro CBS strat neck, large headstock with abalone inlays. I haven't decided on tuners yet. Do you have any recommendations?

    I just listened to the clip. Sounds very good and you answered the question on the body wood.:)

    That particular chunk of one-piece flamed swamp ash came from Ken Warmoth's private garage stash, back in the days when Ken's house was the store front and his back yard shed was the shop.

    Man, you should see this thing...it looks like it was rode hard, put away wet, and then used as a door stop.



    Oh, and all of you folks are too kind with the compliments. Personally, I think I'm a sloppy mess when it comes to playing the geetah.
