7VWH build quality... whats it like?

I've read mixed reviews on this... most folk seem to say that its an exceptional guitar, however I've read some people claiming that the next and body joint can have significant gaps, and that it features "the trademark Jem hairline crack under the neck" (what's he on about?). Someone even said the inlays were mostly plastic, though I thought they were abalone? Finally, was the neck ever ebony? or am I just imagining that? I'm ordering one from Rich at the end of the month by the way.

edit: also is there such a thing as a bad sounding 7V? ie do they all sound and feel great, or do bad ones sneak through?
