If you're refering to the PMC it's probably because it's routed for a ZR trem on a RG7320 or maybe it was a 7420. I can't remember, it was one of those. It's all Ibanez it's not one of those replacements. I also had to cut the claw slightly different than I usually do for that reason.

Yeah that's what I was saying... The back part of the route is even with the part with the insert so it looked off. That makes sense... great work on these man

I've got some pics of one of the other DNA's I will try and upload later tonight.
The headstock finish will be underway very soon for that one.

Re: Sebastian's DNA Jem Swirl Guitar!

Well I just got my DNA body from Michael last weekend.
He also painted and logoed my ET Guitars Ebony DNA neck for me.
The colors are so BRIGHT!
The clear is as good as it gets!

I finished the fret work, put the locking nut, trem post anchors, tuners, strap buttons and neck on.
Now I'm just waiting for the Dimarzio Gravity Storms and Injector Neck to arrive so I can finish it up.
