Last X-mas I thought I deserved a few treats, so one of them was a 1997 Nj Warlock Body and Neck.
The guitar was pretty much a mess, dirt and rust and a few dents. It had been used for some time by a left hand player and then throuwn in a corner.
Some idiot who used to play in a band I really liked, signed the back of the headstock
Since it had been used with a left hand Floyd, I guess someone used a butter knife to route the needed space...
I sanded it, cut a piece of mahogany (wich was the wood I had laying around), glueded in and sprayed some black nitro. Can't seem to find those pics...
Now off to the electronics. Originaly, these come with N. Vol, B. Vol, 3 way and Tone.
But I went on a different path: Push pull for coil split on the neck and a mini dpdt on-on-on for Paralell/split/series on the bridge. I'll be using a Entwistle HDN on the neck and a Bill lawence on the bridge.
Used a Mallory 033 cap and vintage cloth wire. I do most of my soldering with the pots and switches stuck onto cardboard (i trace the controls layout from the body onto the cardboard first). A neat little trick that allows me to have just the right amont of wire
I do my own custom jack plates, from 1mm aluminium. i use a nice jeweler's saw to cut the shape and then sand/ polish.
Fits nicely into the guitar
And here she is, new strings and a setup later. I still have to do a truss rod and backplate, since I f*ckin hate plastic.
Sweet man. Looking really good. I love saving guitars from pawn shops myself heh. I have a ESP LTD F-207 and an old Warlock Platinum I'm working on atm.
