    You may as well put Sadowsky electronics in it anyway, because he gets all his bodies and necks from Warmoth.

    Cue the flames!;)

    If Sadowsky did go with Warmoth it wouldn't surprise me at all. There are a lot of builders like K-line who are more of an "assembly and fine finishing" vs. total construction. There's something to be said for delegation.

    OK, the body looks HOT. Now lets see the neck and some in process pics :D

    Yep, it's similar. I looked at the redwood/alder combo too.

    Last night after the brown truck arrived, I did rough prep work on the body and drilled holes for the potentiometers. A big shout out to Rob LoPrinzi @ Sadowsky for helping me make sure everything was spec'd to accomodate the preamp and controls.

    Clamped up to drill pilot holes for the cavity controls:

    Getting ready to drill for the Sadowsky preamp:

    Fastened in the drill press for the control layout:

    Measure twice, drill once, great success!
