    Here are the specs on the guitar
    Body- Carvin
    Neck-Warmoth 59 profile 10 radius
    Sperzel locking tuners
    pickups- Seymour Duncan- Bridge JB Neck Jazz
    Seymour duncan-LIBERATOR 500k vol pot
    Wilkinson Tremolo- Full floating
    Finish- NITROCELLULOSE
    I had the guitar built by my friend Matt Dreher of Spider Web Music out of frustration because I never been happy with neck profiles on standard guitars. I like big C neck.
    The guitar is my take on Charvel with a big C neck. This is the best guitar I have ever owned or played.

    Very cool.

    What kind of strap button is that on the upper cutaway?

    That's pretty cool. How do you like the 59 profile? I bought one for my strat and I feel it's smaller than it's measurements suggest. Not bad but I wish it was fater.

    I really like the 59 neck profile. However it does feel smaller than the measurement suggest. The next guitar I going to have built I am going to get a Warmoth Boatneck or Fatback neck.

    OP , how was the frets on the Warmoth neck when you recieved it ?
    Did they need leveled and crowned alot or was they ready to play after you assembled the guitar with the relief set ?
    Reason i'm asking is i've had many Warmoth bodies and they are great and i'm getting ready to get a 59 Vintage/Modern neck in one piece maple from them soon. I'm just wondering if the necks need alot of attention before bolting them on and playing them.

    My Friend Matt painted the body and assemble the guitar for me. He said the neck was perfect. There were no problems with the neck or the frets. He was impressed with the quality of Warmoth necks.

    You are going to need to finish the frets on a Warmoth. They're just set and nipped off at the factory. The necks are normally very straight from the factory so the ends just need a little beveling. I have 5 Warmoth guitars, all with 1 3/4" nut and boatneck profiles and they just feel like home to me. High quality stuff.
