This is a guitar we built up in April ’09 but, I discovered today. We built this for a customer on a deal that apparently fell through and it never made it to the site until now! It’s got a great look, and ever better tone and playability. Rather than the normal maple, this is a mahogany neck, usually found on Gibsons, with loads of factory options. It’s one of the new style Warmoths with the truss rod adjustment on the treble side near the cutaway. It has the Wizard back shape, which is thin and flat, with a very flat 16″ radius on rosewood board, 22 medium jumbo frets (6150), clay dot inlays, with factory installed black graphite nut and Sperzel locking tuners. Body is a Mighty Mite solid alder, factory finished to a super high gloss. Pickups are Seymour Duncan with a JB bridge and Jazz in the neck, controlled by a standard 3-way. We can make it a little more versatile with a 5-way or push-pull…inquire. It has all black hardware including Sperzel locking tuners (staggered height so no string tree needed), Dunlop locking strap pins, Gotoh vintage style tremolo bridge, black metal knobs, and black neckplate with flush mounted machine screws. A lot of name players, Danny Gatton being the earliest proponent I can recall, swear by these machine screws with steel inserts in the neck. There is less loss of energy in the metal-metal transfer than with a metal screw to wood and you can take the neck off 1000 times without any wood fatigue. Danny used to remove his neck to fit in the overhead compartment of planes, which prompted him to start using this design. We chose a black pearl pickguard and backplate for this which looks “right” with the black body and hardware. It’s all new parts so it’s in immaculate condition. You can build one of these for around $760 in parts (neck/tuners alone were $368) and a lot of spare time and expertise, or you can get this one, pro-assembled and set up to perfection, for just $699. One of my new Chris’s Guitars gigbags included for $25 or a hardshell case for $65.
