This unique design boasts a bound mahogany body and mahogany neck, carved maple top, thin poly finish, ebony fingerboard, split anvil inlays, and familiar control layout.

The Warlord is fitted with our Woodrite Barbarian humbuckers, a modern take on the classic PAF design, featuring Alnico V magnets for a clear and powerful midrange, ideal for downtuned doom metal and stoner rock.

All Woodrite Guitars are setup in C-Standard tuning with Stringjoy Balanced Heavy Gauge (12-56) strings made in Nashville, TN.

Quantities are extremely limited, so don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to own a Warlord for $1399, a fraction of the Woodbine Custom Shop price of $4200.

Woodrite Guitars was formed in 2021 as a partnership between the Woodbine Guitars Custom Shop and Does It Doom.  The original Warlord design was a collaboration between Woodbine Guitars and Steve Reis, featuring design elements inspired by Steve’s FA Custom Shop DC-6, the Yamaha SG2000, and the Gibson Les Paul and SG.

    It’s an absolute stunning guitar. Not only is it pretty to look at but the damn thing plays like a dream. I have several high quality guitars in my arsenal but was super excited for rehearsal day to roll around so I could break this thing in. And man does it deliver. Everything from beautiful cleans to nasty sludge riffs to monolithic doom to fast trem picking. The setup was spot on. The balance is perfect. And I love the placement of the pickup selector. Super comfortable to play. 10/10. You guys knocked it out of the park.

    First off I just want to say that the Warlord is the ultimate weapon of sonic sorcery! I ordered a Silverburst and it is a beautifully crafted instrument with quality hardware and holds tune very well. The Barbarian pick ups have the mid bite that deliver quality definition that shape a tone that I find very pleasing and I would highly recommend this guitar to anybody looking to up their game. The fact that is comes set up for C standard tuning is very CONVENIENT and the string gauge has the right feel so that it plays fast, yet has the power and sustain required to DOOM just like advertised. Steve has really delivered and I will be on the lookout for future products as he’s the kind of person that you want to support in business, his approach and ethics are second to none!
    Does it DOOM?
    You bet it does! \m/

    Not TRYING to hype this thing at all, but it’s the best guitar I own. Always wanted a DC-6 in silverburst, so this was a dream come true. I play way more than just doom too. I’ve played jazz tunes on it, brutal death metal and shred, and yes of course it dooms too!

  4. Brother Of The Riff (verified owner)

    Pre-ordered the silverburst on the first run of these and was really impressed with the guitar top to bottom. Beautifully designed, and the sustain is incredible. I am able to achieve an array of tones, both clean and of course boosted with dirt/fuzz pedals. Very happy with the purchase and the very reasonable price tag.

    Very happy with my purchase!

    My buddy has one of these! Def gonna be my next guitar. Could go on and on about the quality and price point. It’s an amazing deal on a super high quality weapon of destruction. Can’t put his down when we are at band practice

    I was fortunate enough to snag one of the Silverburst models on the first run. What an amazing guitar! Huge props to everyone involved in making this affordable version of the Warlord! I’ve always been a fan of the First Act Custom Shop DC guitars. It sounds great, plays great, and the most surprising thing for me was how well it was setup when I got it. I mainly play in C Standard and didn’t have to change a single thing. It was setup exactly how I would have set it up myself. I’ve never had that on a brand new guitar before. The Stringjoy 12-56s were a great touch and actually converted me to those strings.

  8. Brian Branson (of Amanita) (verified owner)

    Steve did all of us First Act Custom Shop DC fans a favor by teaming up with Woodbine to get these made. The more I play my Warlord the more I love it. The build quality is top notch, the set-up is spot on, the tobacco burst is just gorgeous, and the pick-ups are hotter than a $2 pistol. I was never really into playing lead until I heard the sustain and deep, luscious tone of this thing. It really sings and inspires creativity. I’ve always heard people talk about guitars where the notes “leap off the fret board” but I had never experienced it until my Warlord showed up and I jammed it into my Thunderverb. This axe certainly punches up from it’s price point. I plan to add another to my collection in the future. (And other future Woodrite models!)

    I didnt really know what to expect when I ordered my Warlord. Whatever reservations I might’ve had were instantly put to rest. The craftsmanship is EXCEPTIONAL and they play phenomenally. I love mine. Ive modded the shit out of it too. Installed some Seymour Duncan P-Rails in it. This guitar can do it all, while looking totally bad ass. I hope Steve does another run.

    I remember being on the first act custom shop website. and always about to pull the trigger on the pike DC 9 or the mastodon DC 9. two insane choices. but ultimately out of my price range. but came close a few times. and was in contact with that shop. and then it was gone…. :(, and a few years later I was making better money. that’s heartache.

    and then this……….GEM! of a human being becomes the wizard of first act guitar collecting. some how starts up a guitar company bringing these guitars back to life and gets it done at a price point that makes sense…..that makes sense!.

    my warlord is the prize of my guitar collection. I’m super proud to own one from the first batch.

    maybe the stars will align and I can snag one from the second batch.
