Its gots some pretty awsome features: solid swamp ash body, unfinished birdseye maple neck and board, in the warmoth boat style, reverse headstock,nice tuners,German made schaller floyd rose(I might eventually upgrade it to an original), Seymour duncan JB in the bridige, I want to say I dimarzio fast track in the middle,and I zion humbucker in the neck.
:drool2: :drool2: :drool2:

This baby sounds awsome,plays like a beast, and stays in tune on top of it all! Its amazing how great a deal you can get on a used warmoth guitar, like this one. It as costs about as much as an epiphone, but destroys it!

My old metal guitar was a jackson professional soloist, but after playing the chunky warmoth neck, I can't even touch that thin neck:doh:I have pretty big hands, and the neck feels sooooo nice, like a dream to play.I hope I get over this love of big necks, becuase no shred guitars have them! I guess I can always go through life replacing the necks of my guitars with warmoth ones:icon_lol: :icon_lol: :icon_lol:

The only thing that I dont like about the guitar, is that for some reason, pinch harmonics just dont want to happen on it. I mean sure I can get them, but I shouldnt have to work hard for them should I? I raised the pickups and its doing a little better, but still, any sugestions welcome to fix this.

Cool fiddle, maing!
Yep, I like a thicker neck now. I can't play a thin neck over 30-45 minutes, or it starts to hurt my wrist and hand.
