One other note on the Warmoth build...unfortunately, they don't have good resale so what you put in don't expect to get out.
Ok, those are the same thoughts I had. My Spector CRFM5, which used to be my main player, was heavy and I didn't mind it. I'd like to lacquer the neck and finger board. Would you mind if I pm'd you if I have a question during the process?
