Where did all the Warmoth T-bird bodies go?

  1. So, Warmoth used to carry a T-bird body, right? And I'm assuming that lots of people bought them, and that not all of them kept them forever, so I went looking for some on the used market and they're as scarce on the used market as they are on Warmoth! What happened to all the sold T-bird bodies?

    Considering how expensive it actually is to build a Warmoth, I'd imagine that the great majority of Warmoth builds stay intact, especially one that's discontinued and sought after like a Warmoth Fenderbird.

    Yep. I don't see too many Warmoth part-outs for sale on the webs (and I'm always trolling for parts). Occasionally you'll see the odd Warmoth body or neck for sale by someone who bought it for a project, but lost their ambition/never got "around to it", but that's about it.

    And I don't think I've ever seen a Warmoth T-Bird body.

    I don't know their actual sales numbers, but I don't think the tbird was all that popular. Back when they still made them, there might be a couple on the instock bodies page compared to probably 75 each for ps and js
