    I would like to get a 5 string Warmoth Jazz body and neck. I will be using pickups sizes and control configurations not listed on their website. Should I buy the body and neck finished, but unrouted or is it better to finish it after it is routed.

    This is what I am looking for:
    2 Aero H style pickups (similar to Fodera)
    Hipshot A Style bridge (w/stringthrough ferrules)
    5 pot (v/v/b/m/t) and 3 switch (coil tap x2, active/passive) control configuration (once again, similar to Fodera)

    For what its worth, I didn't realize I was basically building a wannabe Fodera until I had planned everything

    Perhaps you could either do the routing yourself, or get a local luthier to do it for you.

    Even possibly order the routing templates from the manufacturer and ask if Warmoth will do it for you?

    IIRC, Warmoth will do custom routing work and such, for a price of course.

    I got a neck made there and they were so great to me. Their customer service is awesome and so are their products.

    Check them out, I did and my neck turned out awesome.

    I don't know about USA Customs...check out their payment options...

    We accept payment by Mastercard, Visa, and Discover.
    We'll even take your first born, as long as he knows how to sand wood!
