Re: Warmoth build ... done !

Love it! I would have gone with a wood mount on the bridge pickup, but otherwise I absolutely love it. Did you go with a Jackson headstock shape?

How is the string height from the top of the body compared with a typical Ibanez? You appear to have the standard neck pocket route rather than their "720 Mod".

Thanks ! Yes , pointy headstock . I'd have to bust out the gauge but the action is perfect , on the low side like I like'em . With the trem recessed it drops the bridge as low as you would need to .

That looks really great - a work of art. I'm a huge fan of Warmoth necks, and the bodies are pretty great too.

Re: Warmoth build ... done !

So if I'm seeing this right, the strings are about 0.425" to the center of the string from the top of the body?

I just measured my RGT320QRBB and it was 0.4375". I'll have to check one of my old RG's.

Warmoth's 720 Mod drops the neck down about an additional tenth.
