    Mmmm, not now.... I'm very happy with the thinness of the Bullet (standard strat bodies are thicker). ;)

    That looks awesome. That was a really great neck. Warmoth makes really good stuff.

    I've been contemplating something like an Ibanez AZ/Charvel DK24 type build with Warmoth parts. Maybe I'll pull the trigger on the parts soon.

    Awesome, happy new build man. For me, I actually pay the extra $108 to get the roasted quartersawn maple neck, no flaming allowed :D.

    Very nice...almost looks like a hologram. How long did it take to get the neck from order to delivery?

    Thank you!

    The same here: I was waiting for NAMM 2020 and 2021 for Charvel to put stainless steel frets but each year was a dissapointment. :)
    Ibanez AZs are beautiful but when I grabbed one in a store, the neck was too thick for my girly hands! :)
    I finally went to Warmoth. :)
    And the final result is less expensive than Prestige (Japan) AZs. ;)

    Thanks!

    From USA to France: 5 weeks.
    Exactly how it was annouced on their website.
    I chose Worldwide UPS and paid extra bucks. ;)
    I don't trust french postal service AT ALL lol!

    I have an Ibanez 1987 RG100 with a twisted neck. It appears to have a standard Fender Telecaster neck pocket and 22 frets so a strat neck from warmoth should fit in there fine. I keep thinking sometime this year I'll put a reverse headstock strat neck on it. I think it would nail the Charvel look, but with only 22 frets. My only issue is if you buy a DK22 or Dk24, you'll get most of your money out of it when you sell... not quite true for warmoth builds.

    This is good motivation though! Love the reverse headstocks!

    Beautiful neck! Warmoth makes outstanding parts. My Warmoth HH Tele is maybe my beat guitar. I’m in the planning stages for a semi-super strat build.

    As for me, I'm now planning to round off the fret ends to make it feel Custom Shop like!
    The frets are not sticking out (no fret sprout), they are sharp. I wanna dress them.
    Just bought a luthier tool.
    Will keep updated if interested! ;)

    Definitely motivates me to piece together my strat. I have a bullet hardtail strat at home. Neck seems like it's twisted and I'd been thinking about upgrading to maybe a warmoth roasted maple neck assuming they make one with a 10inch radius and geting stainless frets. Then just getting a black pickguard and installing a single bridge humbucker, a hipshot hardtail and locking tuners.

    Looks beautiful. But you need to add string trees.
