I am jonsing for a Kotzen style tele with more of an Ibanez Wizard style neck. Maybe not quite that thin, but not the huge baseball bat neck that is on a Kotzen tele. I want the body contours and a few other tweaks I like on my guitars, but the look of this:
I am looking at Warmoth, but I really dont want to finish it. The Kotzens are hard to find except in Japan and I am a bit edgy about shipping a guitar from Japan. Plus it has a huge neck on it.
Is there a list of builders on MG that I can start hitting up and seeing what my options are? I searched but couldnt find anything other than Sherman. And since he seems to be Chris's personal builder these days I thought I might start somewhere else.
Warmoth (or an assembler who puts together Warmoth parts) is probably your best bet. Warmoth will also do finishes for you.
