    is that the only part you have so far?

    build it, take pics along the way. I love building guitars. not quite so simple as just buying a bunch of parts. have to make sure they're compatible.

    Ask your doctor if lobotomy is for you.
    I was certain that this was what the thread was about.

    Got a shipment notification from Warmoth:

    Scheduled Delivery Date:

    Weight: 5.60 LBS ?!?!?!

    I wonder if that includes body and neck?

    Yay, someone called it a vibrato, which is the effect floating bridges are used for.
