Wolfgang build

Ok keep an eye for this one. Doing a FULL build. Doing the body and neck myself. Flame maple top and neck.

Im having trouble deciding between a jewel blue or emerald green flame top. Suggestions PLEASE.

Headstock will match the body. Either way, doing chrome hardware.

Re: Wolfgang build

Awesome - I just bit the bullet and started a very similar build this weekend myself. Except I have ordered a neck from Warmoth (same specs as EBMM Axis) except 10-16 compound radius, and stainless steel frets which I absolutely love for vibrato. The neck will have a paddle (i.e. unshaped) headstock which I will shape like EBMM type, and will be unfinished (to be finished in Gunstock Oil/Wax blend similar to EBMM).

The body I will build myself and will feature a nice quilt top on a mahogany body. I haven't decided the colour yet (either green, blue, or purple). The bridge will be a silver OFR and will be recessed unlike the EBMM which is surface mounted.

Progress so far: Neck ordered, Floyd Ordered, Tuners Ordered. CAD Dwg complete. This weekend will make templates.

Looking forward to seeing your progress and finished product.
