    I am curious how the Velocity turns out in this build.
    Been thinking about building a "sleek and fast" T-style Warmoth and the Velocity seems to fit that description but I don't see it very often in the wild.

    Keep us posted of progress!

      There is literally nothing in this build that appeals to me and that's why I'm feeling so much GAS for this. I love how you are making something out of these items that's truly your own.

        Haha! I figured- it is pretty different than any of your designs. So far, it is coming along just great. This is Karma trying to help but definitely not helping.

            Thanks! I didn't really specify the power of the Seths. I told MJ that I wanted them 4 conductor, and I was going to use them split sometimes, so that is probably why she upped the power. I hope to install them later this week.

              I prefer 24.75" scale length (Godin Exit 22, Gibson Les Paul, Peavey Vandenberg) so I bet your project will be killer. That Velocity body is killer too. Nice project, waiting for the final pics.

                Hit a little roadblock deciding how I want to direct-mount the pickups. I made a separate thread about it here. I see a few ideas of what I should do on other forums, but no perfect solutions yet.

                      I reverted to my 5 way 'Do It All' wiring, and I ordered small screws to direct mount the pickups, as I didn't want to drill out the mounting tabs. The wiring took awhile to sort out, but Artie helped me through it all.
                      I strung it with 9s at first, since that's what I use. But the shorter Gibson scale feels terrible with 9s. I swapped in 10s, did the set up over, and this guitar found it's voice. The trem, in conjunction with the LSR nut, floats like a butterfly and returns in tune. I never owned a guitar with an LSR nut, but man...what a cool thing. It comes with a bunch of shims for the right height (great idea!), and I needed 2 on the treble side and 1 on the bass side to clear the first fret.

                      I've already used this guitar at several shows, and it fits right in. The Seth Lovers are different than what I am used to, but I love their quirky, honky, bratty voice.


                      OK, here are some more pics!

                      These pickups came out great. There should be more powder-coated black pickups out there. I love the black logo, too.

                        That's a really stunning looking guitar.

                          Fab result indeed, red with black hardware is always a winner. Get yer Yngwie on! The neck looks like my PL, which, after 35 years of playing has gone deep tan (I call it fondled maple).

                          So the truss rod adjustment is at the side of the heel? Kinda reminds me of old Burns guitars, which had it at the base of the neck via a special key.

                            What's that screw (?) in the side of the neck heel?
