    Finished this build. I love it.
    Warmoth body and neck. Seymour Duncan pups. Vintage Stack in the neck and the Lil '59 in the bridge.
    It's my first build, and I'm happy with it. Sounds great. Still tweaking the setup a bit. It was a fun process. My soldering skills have improved quite a bit.

    Great guitar. I love the various neck profile options one can get with a Warmoth neck.

    Nice job. No matter what country the parts came from, you can say made in USA.

    Wow! Top notch components in a very classy build. Quite a looker, I used a warmoth neck with an ebony board in my first partscaster. I'm curious as to how your liking that lil '59 in the bridge, I've never heard one. Great choices on your build, enjoy!
