For a while, I've been wanting to build my own. Not having access to an enormous power tool arsenal, I thought it might be more realistic to just buy the body and neck, and customize it as I want to. I wanted to do a little more than just buying a Carvin kit and just assembling it, but I don't think I have the know-how or capability of doing these multi-laminate bodies and necks that are so beautiful. Any feedback on the quality of the Carvin bodies (ash) and necks? I thought I might try planing off the top 1/2" of the body and adding a burled or flamed maple top. I have also looked at those Gecko bodies and necks from Warmoth, and aside from having a lizard inlay on the neck, they seem to be pretty spiffy looking. Anyone ordered one of theirs? Thanks!
