    I'm thinking of putting one of these together and would like to see some others for inspiration.
    Photos and advice welcome.

    As soon as I figure out what happened to all my files on imageshack (is there some kind of expiration date for photos hosted there?) I'll put up a pic of mine...it's not entirely accurate to call it a Warmoth though, because, while it started life as a Warmoth fretless 5-string, the new 8-string fretted neck was built by Michael Dolan, so the only thing Warmoth-y about it is the body. Oh, plus I bought the Schaller bridge from Warmoth, so I guess it counts.

    Pics to follow.

    Hi Sorry I don't have picks. I built a Warmoth Eight string ...alder P/J with a vintage nitro blonde finish. It sounded great but I have to tell you those Warmoth eight string necks are huge. Boatneck contour with slab fingerboard...makes it uncomfortable to play, and they are heavy with their steel reinforcement...major overkill. I sold it. I want to build another eight string but I will look for another neck option. Hope this helps.
