Custom Toronado bodies?

Post by spilltray » Wed Oct 24, 2012 7:03 pm

Are there any places out there that can do any custom toronado bodies out of different woods with custom routing options (but the original deluxe toronado bridge routing)?

I've experimented a bit with Jazzmasters and Jaguars, but I kinda like the 24.75" scale and the body shape. If I can't find one I might just go with a JM body and 24.75 conversion neck.

You might find someone on the forum could do what you want. I have a Toronado body outline template that I made a while ago that I'd be happy to share.

I've had Guitar Mill do three bodies for the Toronado/modern Musicmaster bridge with strings-thru-body. I don't know if they can do the Toronado body shape, but they can make a lot of custom work, so it's worth asking. I had them modify the Mustang body shape with a slant butt (kind of like the pawnshop Mustang) for my latest project. It's for a 24.75" scale neck too:

- They do amazing work, but beware that they are very slow. I waited six months for this...

Did you every find someone to build your toronado? I’m interested in this too.
Things are more like they are now, then they ever have been.

Me too, I wouldn't mind a Toronado at all.
