    Does anybody know a manufacturer besides Warmoth and USA Custom that can do a down-sized Jazz body with the bridge pup routing a 1/2 inch back like the 70s Fenders? Warmoth says they can't move the pup rout a 1/2 inch and the USA Custom dinky J is a little too pointy looking.

    Thanks.

    Yes, we can do this for a shop fee. Just tell us which way to move it and how far... I can never remember which way that pickup moves. We hardly ever get asked for this, so it wouldn't surpise me if one of our sales rep didn't know we did this

    Sorry 'bout that!

    Really? Great! I wanted to order from Warmoth anyway. Can I just tell the sales rep that when I call to order?

    Also, I might as well ask this too, he told me that you guys can't mix custom colors. Is that right? I'm trying to get that light brown-mocha color from the 70s Fenders.

    Thanks.

    Man, I wish this thread happened back in July. Maybe next time, I guess. :bawl:

    Sure, you can tell them I told you so.

    We don't like mixing or matching custom paint colors though - big can of worms there. Many of those old Fender colors were standard Dupont car paints - if you can find the paint manufacturer's color number, we can sometimes try to order some in for you. More money involved here, too... :)

    Since we are on the topic, are there any plans to make a 20 fret 5 string neck and body pair? That would be so awesome. Big body, 4+1 tuner array, it would look so old school and cool.
