NGD: Warmoth Partscaster (pics + Video)


I've had this for about a month now, but I finally got around to getting some video of it down, so here I am.

Essentially, this is my take on a JS1000, tweaked to my specs. Chambered swamp ash body, quilted maple top, contoured neck joint, a somewhat chaotic, wavy birdseye neck, Original Floyd Rose, PAF Pro and Fred pickups, 3-way blade with a coil tap on the tone pot. I had Warmoth finish the body in blue burst, but id a tung oil finish on the neck myself - 8 coats, and I buffed back all but the last two to leave a thin gloss,

This is an awesome sounding guitar - very clear and piano-like in the attack, and loves mid-gain sort of liquid but not completely saturated distortion. It plays pretty spectacularly, too.

Video - first, me doing a playthrough of one of the songs on the album I'm wrapping up - sorry, I forgot to normalize the audio here so it's kind of quiet:

And then some clean stuff with the coil tap pulled:

and pics:





I'm completely thrilled with the way it came out!

Very nice! Congratulations. I'm building a Warmoth/Fender partscaster right now too. Just waiting for the rest of the parts to come to finish it off. What are the specs on your neck?

Very similar to yours, actually (I commented in your thread after posting this) - Modern carve, stainless 6150 fretwire. Warmoth Pro construction, however.

It's an awesome feeling neck.

Nice, yeah, mine feels nice from what I can tell. Cannot wait to finally set it up and play.

Thanks guys!

All in probably just shy of $1400. That said, had I finished the body myself I could have shaved that down quite a bit - probably less than a grand.
