Warmoth Stratocaster
I repeat the same description posted here waiting to get more details: the guitar was Consignment, and the store did not have complete information. I will edit later.

"It Warmoth kit was assembled by the workshop of Alexander (Orsay), the maple body gives a long sustain, the neck has a C finish pearloid celtic cross and corianskull, all with a rosewood fingerboard much for. violin part, the microphones are SP Custom lite Savage Beast in the neck and bridge position. These powerful pickups are made for distortion, fat while remaining accurate. The middle pickup is a classic Fender Lace Sensor giving access to more sounds "Vintage." To further expand the sonic palette, the microphones are mounted in opposite phase and a push / pull activates an acute filtering. superstrate This is unique because of its design and aesthetics. "
According to the seller, it is in an assembly that affects at least the 2000th.

UTILIZATION

The handle is very comfortable in C, with a pretty amazing finish. A real highway, although it is a little wider than my previous superstrate (Ibanez).
The string action is very close to the handle, I love it! It was an essential item for me (I had a Schecter Ultracure whose handle was also a model of comfort and efficiency - and this one is even better).
The instrument is comfortable to wear, balanced, and sounds pleasantly empty.
I knew a lot of instruments, but none have brought me as much pleasure from game one week before taking this guitar, I had the opportunity to try a telecaster custom shop and a Les Paul to ( it seems) 4000e. Well I prefer this superstrate is to say the quality of Warmoth parts! (And work behind violin).
The maple body brings some weight, but I've seen much worse on a strat.

SOUNDS

SP Custom pickups are my most interesting that the Lace Sensor perspective (which is very good).
They have a character that I like: very accurate, powerful, but also warm. And even in the clear I love these as much as a simple desktop humbucker (except that split they blow more than the latter). The electronics of my guitar is quite complex, and allows pleiiiin different things to the point that I was losing the first day. Versatility, but the character still, I love it! These pickups go great with this guitar. They respond really well when playing with the volume, it's pretty awesome! The "tone" is impeccably his job and I like to play with (this is the first time one of my guitar), and enables the opposite phase. The store was about a treble filter, but I am sure he is rather independent to split the two SP Custom. And split, they sound beautifully!
I do not put the maximum score, however, since SP Custom informed me that their "Savage Beast" deluxe version existed, and they were well above the "Lite". I almost find it hard to believe, however, that I had just Bare knuckle and who preferred the character of the "Lite". This guitar deserves the best, I will buy him a kit of two Deluxe soon as possible ;)

In any case, this configuration is quite well with the chosen wood, which helps to sustain and precision sound. A smart choice.

OVERALL OPINION

I was looking for a guitar "favorite" that can accompany me for long, and do not suffer any compromise. After looking I realized that monitor ads assembled from parts Warmoth guitars was a good idea. Initially, I had set a budget of 800 euros. I found particularly interesting announcements in the 600th (a TV and a Stratocaster), but I agreed to spend 450 euros more (on occasion) for a guitar I loved the finish (white superstrate with a plate celluloid flashy wheel beautiful, and with a vinyl sticker on the body that I can remove it, but I really enjoy), and configuration.

In the end, I end up with a guitar that inspires me and gives me more pleasure than any other guitar has never given me. Finish, comfort worthy of a custom shop, at least. The advantage is the originality and the fact that this guitar is like no other.
In fact ... I think this guitar and me is for life! (And for my next guitar will continue to look at the side of Warmoth).

Warmoth Stratocaster
Warmoth Guitar (neck and body) ... but I do not know the woods!
handle 24 boxes!
US stamped.
for decorative plate that secures the handle is a Fender.

mechanical self-locking and bridge wilkinson

3 micro fender custom shop, but Abigail Ybarra pickup changed:
DI-Marzio drop zone (which sounds like a simple double)

Setting: Gerard CAILLEUX the isle adam -95 -

UTILIZATION

guitar and handle super nice on my VOX lil train that sounds SRV!

I had to completely re-do the wiring that was done wrong (knob inexesistant then) and poorly mounted bridge pickup (ie positions of micro unusable!)
since the review (€ 100 set neck / bridge, new rope and re-wiring) nikel!
I am absolutely satisfied with my purchase (exchange against an Epiphone les paul Japan).

SOUNDS

the sounds are typical stratocaster ... therefore versatile.
my bridge pickup allows for fishing and a more modern sound.
the mixture in intermediate position (center + bridge) and also excellent ...
these microphones along well!
lol
I played a lil VOX train and there on a VOX ToneLab SE.

hard to describe precisely the sound since I do not have much to compare ... but the sound is typical strat given the little I have tried ...
large but comfortable playing on the shovel

OVERALL OPINION

I've had three months.
I wanted a standard strat US ... and I fell apart on this occasion and a big review on it, I am delighted.
before I had a yamaha pacifica which I was very happy (40 €! top for the price) ... found the versatility of guitar strst I find but here it is well above the quality and sound.

I think I love everything about this scratch!

I would just like to know a little more on it, but other than removing the neck and body to see (Warmoth logo and No. I think) ... there is no serial number or other on the head ... therefore not possible to know the history of the guitar!

I recommend this (my) guitar
(Not purchased as a kit !!!!!)

I do not need that because 10 other guitars ... I try to compare!

Warmoth Stratocaster
Warmoth kits are manufactured in the United States for over 20 years. I chose a swamp ash body strata, flamed maple table, varnished honeyburst (honey), birdseye maple neck 22 frets and oiled radius Warmoth 6105 frets, graphite nut, head explore key pao ferro. Fender texas special pickups in serious and middle, PRS Dragon 2 in acute. Start vintage vibrato, MECAS KLUSON, custom wiring to connect together all the microphones, etc. out of phase, split etc. Whew! connoisseurs will appreciate.
The quality is exceptional! Flamed Maple madness, super birdseye neck flamed AND Toppy, varnishes beautiful, deep, mirror. I know the Warmoth long time and is the stuff of egg, as they say young people today. The woods are chosen hyper, dried, etc. .. All the good qualities of their makers praise violin, always constant. We are in the category of big names like PRS, Tom Anderson, schecter us and Hamer us etc. .. Note 11 of 10.

UTILIZATION

Warmoth format is impeccable: neither too big nor too late, well in hand, well in hand! J'adoooore. Ergonomics is a stratum.
Sound: the sinews of war. It's a massacre! Dense, dynamic, big sound, pure strat premium. This is a scratch which sounds altogether. No comments unnecessary.
Note that I played for quite some time now and I've owned and / or played a lot of different guitars. This is the best I've played Strat! I taped the Warmoth are so rare! What a shame for those seeking a "real" instrument! Go to the site us! I put 11 out of 10.

SOUNDS

All styles are possible, as all the Super Start. Ash brings good bass and clear treble. The sound of body, thickness and grain. The Texas can give their full potential. The PRS Dragon 2 is epoustouflouflifiant: the sound is chubby, clear, notes stand out regardless of the plans. It is a more vintage and modern microphone, singing over that edge. Output level consistent with Texas. I am amazed! The violin is used super well with this microphone.
For info, Marshall JCM 800 amp power, and preamp carvin quadx 2x12 carvin Steve Vai Legacy v30.
Since then, I think I'm srv and Hendrix and I even failed to set fire to the guitar break, won in my solo ... Ok, when I awoke, I was beside my pillow, but shhh! Tell anyone ... Note 11 of 10.

OVERALL OPINION

I just move it up. This instrument is not given immediately, and although I'm amazed by the sounds for now, we feel a qu'y'en underfoot. This is a guitar to tame, which will prove little by little. It does not give the first night, sir, we must learn to know. I love!
Total cost, with microphones unearthed cars on the Internet for roughly 50% of their price (the rest is new): € 1200. Exceptional value for money. (Because quality TOPTOPTOP ..)
The downside, however: the resale of these kits is difficult because many are buying a brand or a concept more than an instrument for its quality. You sell them well below the average score of the range of instruments, but "scratched" and much less than its own qualities. The Warmoth are known only amateurs. Life is unfair. I will put 10, not 11 for the flat. Hello.

ps235's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Warmoth Stratocaster
First and foremost, you must know that I am a fan of stratum and with several models (fender (X2), blade) I Toujouse to recheche a stratabound but I do not have the means to SHUR buy ... EUR 5000

United States manufacturing
Body: Swamp ash (ash swamps) table dappled maple (quilted), blue burst finish very deep.
Channel 22 stained maple box "transparent blue", gloss, Fender Custom Shop logo (wow is not that right) ebony fingerboard, strips 6150 (jumbo). Profile C benchmarks pearl and graphite nut.
Configuration microphones:
virtual vintage (double stack) in neck
blue velvet di Marzio (single) (reversed polarity) in middle
Seymour Duncan (humbucker) SH4 JB in bridge
Selector Schaller (mega switch) in five positions:
1 - neck
2 - neck + midlle
3 - neck + bridge split
4 - middle + bridge split
5 - bridge not split
Wilkinson vintage easel
Mechanical sprezel
mirror plate
black hardware
Shielded cabling

UTILIZATION

Handle very nice, easy, a must in the genre, well above the fender when the setting of the action and the quality of the button, closer to a stratum or a blade ultra R4 / RH4, the best copies in my opinion.

Access to acute standart is a choice but that does not bother me.

Relatively large weight, but it's not a les paul, phew ...

The sounds come naturally, and the switch 5 positions a little unusual is not for nothing. Of course you lose the microphone middle one, but frankly with other guitars normally configured, it makes up for other opportunities.

SOUNDS

This scraper is perfect for me, whether in the studio with my preamp or amp (boogie mark 4), the sounds are perfectly defined.
The Di Marzio Virtual Vintage Stack in the neck position is incredibly powerful and versatile, it lets in light and transforms the game speak your attacks in light of the most pleasant crunch, with the middle sound is hollow and is ideal for arpeggios, providing both clarity gilmour type with possiilité effects to a level strong enough without distorting the grain ... it's mind-blowing!
The middle pickup is not used alone, I have no opinion on it, except for having mounted a classic strat config (std blade texas) it is very vintage and cool, but can be a little neutral for my taste.
The JB spit in the neck is fabulous, the best sounds are found carved in the stratum.
With the middle, it accentuates the mids without making the sound, the bass and treble crunchent slam ...
Finally, the JB one is no surprise, warm, powerful, harmonic out in short, all is well.
I have no sound on this really favorite skyscraper, all positions are interesting, but we must recognize that the most typed and therefore more attractive are the only neck and bridge only.
I do not hate anything, the range is really smooth.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for one month and after two months of installation / setup and tests I have to say that I am fully satisfied with my investment.
Only downside, the cost, relatively high, however:

Body: 459 euros
round 338 euro
fittings and microphones: 400 euros
What makes a guitar dream about 1200 euros (+ shipping and various VAT) imported in eight weeks and up (by myself ... oops!) In a few weeks ... but it's worth.

Two reservations, however:

1 - do not engage in this type of assembly if one does not feel the skills, and why do you hand over a Squier Stratocaster mex or example.

2 - the resale value of that even if there are logos and plaques (coronado custom shop) can in theory to scam to sell a custom must not be used for purposes other than the aesthetics of the instrument that finally make this beautiful shovel always be worth less in the opportunities that you have invested, much like a guitar maker.
