Has Anyone Built a Warmoth Jazz Style 5?

    Tell me about it. Did you use hardware available thru them? How do the necks fit the bodies? Tightly? How did the B turn out? Is it worth the effort?

    I was thinking of doing an ash body in translucent yellow with a RW fretboard with blocks and binding, white pearloid pickguard, SD Basslines, Badass 5 bridge, Aguilar OBP 1 and maybe some Fender style Ultra Lite tuners.

    Post some pics if you have anything.

    I built 2. The 1st one I built is this one:


    The neck was actually slightly larger & I had to do fit it. Other than that, it was perfect. The second one perfect but I have no pictuers. :( The only reason I sold the pictures one was the weigth. It was heavy. The second one * built to sell & I made a small profit cause I had alot of the parts laying around & I bought the body off of eBay & the neck from the thrift shop.

    Warmoth now offers weight reduced bodies & if I didn't own 3 Sadowksy's I's build another.
