Quilted Maple Slime WM 526 Concept Idea
« on: April 16, 2010, 05:07:39 PM »
I was thinking of getting this built one day. I'm waiting for the
Custom Shop to be ready to pull off all out custom one offs again.
Its sad how the economy has screwed things up at the shop.

-High quality perfectly matched Quilted maple top on both body and head stock.
-Clear coated mahogany on the back of the body, neck and head stock
-Body and head stock with the same electric green Dime 3 Slime Stain just like the late 90s Dime 3 Slime
-24.75 inch scale length
-The exact same neck dimensions as the old 2000 Dime USA 3ST Stealth
-Dime USA 3ST Stealth fretboard radius as well.
-Exact same sized jumbo frets used on the old Dime USA 3ST Stealth
-Bill & Becky Bill Lawrence Unshielded L500XL in the bridge
-Bill & Becky Bill Lawrence Unshielded L-500 in the neck
-Chrome Monsters Washburn decal logo instead of the standard version Washburn logo
-Custom Pearl lightning bolt inlays if possible
-Black binding on body, neck and head stock
-Ebony fretboard
-Pearl side markers
-Mahogany body
-Mahogany/set neck
-Grover Exclusive 18:1
-Buzz Feiten Tuning System
-Two volumes
-Original Floyd Rose trem
-Built in the USA!

why 24.75 ??! 25.5 works far better for lower tuning, less flappy.

25.5 or 24.75, I love both scale lengths for different things. I may just go for 25.5 in the end. Either way it will be awhile til a build like this will even be possible in the Custom Shop I've been told. :(

That would be an amazing piece of art when finished.  I don't know how the custom shop is taken orders and such at the moment, but for the right price I'm sure they could work something out.

I bought it that way. i guess washburn had a couple of these figured top ones in mind. it would have been great to see what they would have done with it.

I agree!  Gorgeous! My Wm526 is about the best playing axe Ive ever played. Id love to have one with a beautiful figured top too.
