7/8th Bodies and Necks
You like a Fender body style. But, you also like playing a shorter scale Gibson neck.
Solution - the Warmoth 7/8 S-Style or 7/8 T-Style guitars!
Warmoth made a few back in the 1980's for customers. We made some more for Valley Arts guitars in the 1990's. Today, you can order everything you need to put one together yourself...all with Warmoth parts and in-stock hardware from brands you trust!
One of the early Warmoth projects was a 7/8 guitar for a customer. With a comfortable Mustang neck, Warmoth created a scaled down guitar body to match it. A handful were made for customers to use with their short scale necks.
During the early years of Valley Arts, they contacted Warmoth about making a new guitar. They were looking for a guitar that featured the ergonomics of a Strat or Tele with the comfortable short scale of a Gibson. The 7/8 "S" Body and 7/8 "T" body guitars were born. Warmoth produced many of the bodies and necks for the completed guitars sold by Valley Arts.
The Valley Arts concept was a hit. For the past several years, however, new production models have not been available. Since then, Warmoth has received many requests for a similar guitar. We've developed guitar bodies and necks that pay tribute to those early Warmoth and Valley Arts concepts.
Introducing the Warmoth 7/8 S-Style and 7/8 T-Style guitars!
Who are these guitars for? Players who:
- enjoy playing Mustangs and Jaguars
- prefer a Gibson style shorter scale neck
- want a lighter Strat or Tele style body
- wish the ergonomic Strat style was slightly smaller
- look forward to building their own guitar
- don't want something that looks tiny (look at our side-by-side comparison)
These styles use your favorite hardware, electronics, and pickups. We created custom pickguards that match terrifically. And, we have our road-tested, player-approved Warhead 24-3/4" necks that fit so well, you'd think we designed it that way...
While the body and neck are scaled down, the offering isn't. All of the paint, dye, stain, and finish options are available. Nut and fretwire options are the same as standard Strat and Tele styles. Best of all, the price is standard too!
