    Hello Luthiers Corner,
    I've had two Warmoth bodies in my closet for a couple of years now, with total parts to build about 1.5 basses (so 1 bass should not be an issue)...
    I'm looking for someone to do these Ash bodies in Trans purple. Does anyone know of any shops within 100 miles of Boston that will do something like this? I lack the experience or knowledge to attempt a project like this, I'd likely just ruin both bodies!
    Any ideas?

    In retrospect I don't even think local is that necessary! I'm willing to ship, but it would have to be someone with a trusted reputation.

    Railroading my own thread but...
    I just called Warmoth-
    Warmoth will do these two bodies in Translucent purple for $185 each plus prep! That's an astounding price. No affiliation...
    But sold!
    Looks like my first of two Warmoth basses is gonna get built soon.
