I've been staring at that Dimeola for a couple of days that thing might have to be mine.

The tops depend on the construction - if they are carved tops then yes - they started about three years ago doing what they call a dual layer. So it's one layer of a non-figured wood and then a thinner layer of a figured wood.

My recollection was it helps keeps the prices reasonable and gives them the ability to put together some really incredible figured tops.

Is Warmoth still a good way to go? A number of people on RT were saying they're not as good as they used to be. I wanted to eventually get a 50% scalloped neck for my Strat.

Nope, not the way to go anymore. But remember, a decent education and semi-reasonable or better health are no longer the way to go either, so take that with a grain of salt. If youre one of those people that likes to be smart and healthy, you may still like warmoth :2c:

Note: I am so tired i am delirious, but what im saying is YES: they are still awesomepawsome.

Not on their carved top guitars, since those are solid maple with no veneers. No idea on the standard ones... it's probably 1/8" or 3/16" thick on my Warmoth, which isn't the thinnest I've seen and is certainly not a veneer.

That warmoth is gorgeous. "me Likey" I wish I didn't have 3 other customs in the works this year. That body needs to be bought by someone on this forum because I want to see how it turns out plus GOTM is pretty weak this month. C'mon guys, I can't or I would. I've already got to come up with the end deposits on a Bernie rico jr Slant Top, and LGM Leviathan, and a GMW Demartini Python. Somebody step up and do the right thing.
