gun-stang was pretty epic, though i can't imagine it'd be comfortable playing

the black w/ gold stripe is cool, and i'm less taken by the blue w/ orange. i could refin either of them, sure, but the thing is i've wanted the orange comp stang (with the hardware and electronics of a mustang) since rodvonbon showed up with a baker's dozen of them (or however many it was he had). i didn't have the means to propose a buy back then when they were about half the street value they are now, but my understanding is he sold most or all of them off. i could always go the ishibashi route i suppose, but i've never tried that.



Just buy one of his duh

i pm'd, so if i hear from him, i'll explore what's there in that conversation.

i did call warmoth a few minutes ago, and they can do everything i want with the matching headstock and comp stripe. they can't do the mustang pickups cos they don't sell them. that's fine, i'm okay getting the pickups, covers, pots, knobs, switches, and wiring and just handling that myself.

EDIT: as i recall, they don't do the decals either, so i'll have to pick up those myself as well. actually kinda excited to do this. just got my tax refund yesterday, so i have cash to make it happen.

You probably did your research but I searched warmoth comp Mustang and found this thread about an LPB on another forum. Looks better than the Bullet Mustang stripe at least

I didn't get why they did that and read the thread again. They aimed to make a copy of TEH KURTZ lefty mustang, since the decal is facing the other way on a lefty headstock, they just flipped the fucking letters on the righty guitar they built.

OK haha

The Matrix operator looks at this, goes "Woah, she's hot", puts his pants down and starts jerking off

JK, that's probably going to be the best fun putting it all together and seeing the final result to come alive

That's nuts you ordered it in basswood.

I'm looking forward to the throaty tone wood meshing with the snappy sbortscale and alnico siingles for sure!

Only thing about basswood is it's pretty soft and dings easily (at least in my experience - Squier CV P-Bass)

Definitely familiar with that aspect... my jagstang was basswood and it dinged and dented even in the gig bag. Got a hsc for it just in case.
