New job in the works...

Nothing is confirmed yet but when I get out to Tacoma there is a very good chance that I will be working at Warmoth. I've been emailing the head guy back and forth for a couple of days now and all looks good so far. They seem to dig the fact that I worked at Gibson Guitars for quite a while.
Maybe I can finally build a Warmoth baritone 7!

Warmoth? Awesome! Congrats on your new job.

I didn't know you worked at Gibson, Donnie. That's cool.

Most likely it'll be in the neck line.
When I worked for Gibson, I managed to learn everything so I think they see that as very usefull.

Sweet! And if you just happened to...I dunno...accidentally make a line of 25.5"-scale or 27"-scale 7-string necks. They'd probably have to be scrapped right...and they probably wouldn't care where they went...

...oh and the bodies would have to be scrapped too, probably, since they'd be set up for the wrong scale length as well...

Not to mention the ones you HAVE.

Donnie, that'd be awesome if you got that job. And I call in for a 25.5" strat-style neck too.

Hey, if you get the job, see if you can convince them to make Fender-licensed 7-string products. I'd build myself a 7-string Strat in a heartbeat.

By dream guitar is basically a 7-string Strat/RG hybrid with piezo

That would rule.

Well you at least know that you won't be working for some corporate suit who knows nothing about guitars. And you won't have to worry about your pay raise going to Baldwin pianos lol. I have a friend who works for the nashville store, and I've heard some tales myself.

If you ever end up with so many JP7s that you pick favorites and decide you just don't love a member of the family anymore, I'm sure someone here will give it a good home

Well, I start at Warmoth on Monday. I'll be working in the body department. I'll keep you all posted on how it goes.

elenen, I almost sold one of the JPs before I came out here. In the end I just couldn't bring myself to do it.

Congrats on the job, and the decision to not sell off a family member

Congrats, Donnie! That's awesome. I hope the job and the band work out great.

(BTW, you got some balls to just pack up and restart like that. Not me! I'm a chicken-sht, plus I love boring ol' Toledo. But kudos to you )

Keep us posted on whether you have any luck with the 7-string Strat thing.

Congratulations, Donnie!

Thanks man! Now I can start a collection of freakish Warmoth guitars. Being an employee I should get a pretty sweet discount.
Yeah, selling one of the JPs would have been like selling one of my arms.
