The conklin neck pictured here is the only/ element set in stone. I want to spec out the entire rest of the build before actually ordering parts. So I'm looking to find suggestions for body shape/body wood/trem/pickups/whatever, pretty much anything thats not the neck. So the only specs the other parts must have is 25.5 scale/bolt on body/fender style neck pocket. I could easily just assemble something that I know I would really like, but maybe I should do something more outlandish. Thats why I'm asking you guys! What would you guys do?

i hate the look of the rounded fender body with modern looking headstocks.

That would look sweet with a saber style body like a jackson stealth or something.

Whats on my shortlist now looking at warmoth is

-Strat bodies
-Tele Bodies (HEAVY METAL TELE :metal:)
-Soloist bodies
-Z bodies
-Whatever their prs bodies are called

I really like the soloist body with the awesome blue top, but it is too spendy for me.

I would love to go for a carved top soloist, but those bodies start at $500ish. Which is too mcuh for me.

Are there any alternatives I should consider to warmoth?

USACG. They're not any cheaper though.

Also, Allparts.

Anybody know if fender is the only brand that does micro tilt? I took off the neck and there is the micro tilt plate there.

Looks like you can't adjust it from the back anymore, since that mechanism is gone. :lol:
