    Stuck on a rock !
    I fancy something unusual and different - anyone hear pick and mixed themselves a Warmoth ? I kinda fancy picking all the bitz myself, getting them to finish it and having an instrument thats unique and unlikely to be repeated.

    So anyone got one and what are your opinions ?

    Thanks in advance guys.

    I have a bass made out of Warmoth parts and I love it. I think the greatest concern you should have is not how good the parts are, but how well they're put together.

    If you choose good parts and good components, you're more than likely gonna wind up with a good instrument.

  3. My Warmoth is my main bass and it's one of the best looking and sounding basses I've played. Many thumbs up for Warmoth.

    The problem with Warmoth isn't the quality of the parts, it's the fact that you don't know how it's going to sound until it's put together. I have one, and while I really like it, it's not exactly the sound I was after.
