    Thank you!
    The main truss rod adjust is at the heel, like on a old Fender. But quick adjustments can be done with the screw on the side...sort of a fine adjuster.

    The scalloped neck thing was more because of John McLaughlin, but I find it reduces a lot of hand fatigue, so both of my main guitars are scalloped.

      I also like how it is unique but seems really functional and good sounding.

          Thanks Gene! It has made its appearance at a few of Julie's shows.

            Man, Mincer, that looks great! Tasteful from top to bottom. I dig it!

              "Just" Artie helped out with the wiring, huh?

                No, thank you as well. I couldn't have done this without you either.

                  Thanks.

                  It's a looker, hope you enjoy it for years to come. Just keep it out of reach of Karma's claws.

                    Nicely done. Love the contrast in the wood selection. Liking the Warhead neck, too. That's the first one I've really seen out in the wild.

                    I'm hoping to make my next build a Velocity body, just not 100% whether to go more traditional or more exotic.

                      Well, the cool thing about this shape is that there isn't 70 years of tradition. So you can go wild and it still looks 'normal'. I picked the Warhead because none of the other ones looked right to me. I've come to really like it.

                        It’s a great shape combination.

                        Is it really that pink/coral colored or is that the camera?
                        Oh no.....


                        Oh Yeah!

                          It is really a deep red (sati dye) in person. It is the same red as the crab pillows. I didn't use a filter on the pic, but it wasn't natural light in the room.

                            That came out really sweet. I like it. Even better that it plays how you want it to. My Warmoth is one of my main players.

                              [ like it. Usually when you guitars go for a modern look it means that they have impractical body shapes and all the hardware is gimmicky. I like the ergonomics, control location, and conciseness of it.

                              The softness of the edges and matte paint is also nice.
                              If I only had a dollar for every song I've sung
                              every time I had to play while people sat there drunk,

                                Need a little photo adjustment then!

                                Have you weighed it? I’m scared the parts I have here will be a heavy build.
                                Oh no.....
