Part Warmoth. Part Ibanez.
Decided I wanted a very 80’s, 22 fret shredder and I had an old late 80’s Ibanez 540S neck lying around. Since the square heel is basically “Fender spec”, I decided to get an unfinished Warmoth Soloist body to slap it on. The body is alder and finished by me. Did sort of a lime green to a blue-ish green burst. It’s a little more subtle than I wanted but I’m happy with it. I think I will call it The Sleestak. The neck has that super silly thin 80’s Ibanez carve to it which I love.
Suhr Alrich bridge pickup and some random single coil in the neck. It was the only single I had around so it’s in there for now. To switch between the two is a push/pull volume pot. Wanted to keep it simple. The final touch was a green arcade style momentary switch to get my Buckethead on with!

Plays and sounds exactly like an 80’s inspired guitar should!
