    I'll soon complete my first nitro finished warmoth tele and now I'm contemplating a 5-string project. Has anybody built a Warmoth-5 and have any ideas about whether to go with a Deluxe 5 or a Gecko? I like more traditional tones and don't slap. FWIW my primary amp is a Nemesis 410.

    I like the idea of a sunburst D5 but since they don't recommend a pickguard I may go with a single dyed color (probably quilted maple top). Would like to keep the cost down and would like to hear how that breaks down if anybody's been running the numbers.

    I'm thinking single pickup. Any recommendations there?

    Thanks!
