    Hi

    I was looking at the warmoth site the other day, realy interesting

    infact, i might considder to order some parts to build my own bass.

    I'm in love with the thunderbird body, but warmoth doesn't make the thunderbird styled neck. does anyone know a similar factory (would be better in europe even) that makes good TB styled necks?

    thanks you

    When you say "style," do you mean in the sense of neck measurements/specs, or just the headstock shape? Because you can order blank headstocks at Warmoth, and then just carve yourself a T-bird headstock.
     
  3. If you can do that suggestion, carving your own head, it would be better since Warmoth routes and drills for their necks and other necks [from another company] may not necessarily fit their bolt pattern.

    When I eventually get a six string bass, I'll probably go with Warmoth again. They did a very fine job on my fretless neck, so I'll go to them again.

    actualy i'm kinda looking for a pre-made one, i've seen pics of a t-bird with a tele style (early P i guess) neck, also looks kinda cool though :p
