New BFP Jem on its way from Sweetwater, should be a happy man come Thursday.
Depending on how particular you are make sure to inspect it well. I had to go thru 3 to get one acceptable with what are extremely minor flaws for a BFP [few scratches on the fretboard], but even it needs the nut ground, they've been getting taller and taller, no shims of course. The other 2 were, I'll just say not even close.
BTW they ditched the really crappy Premium Sig cases and everything is in the soft case now.
And, we came to the mutual agreement I'm going to suspend handling the new generation RG's. I had several sold, I just won't restock. It's not that there aren't some good guitars, Some of them are very nice, seriously, there are just too many different combinations of things that have to convene on the same guitar for me to buy it. Because even if you get the necks from the 1 guy that is really qualified to do fairly rounded ends on stainless without chewing out a couple mm of wenge [cleaning up the ends on a Gen1 and poor ends on stainless is hours of different and you can't clean up the gouging], but you have to get that neck on a body that doesn't have a poorly aligned pocket [the majority actually have good alignment, but that's 51%, I did a test and sanding these half burl thick neck pockets straight is twice the time, that burl is so much harder than the basswood. Then it has to have at least a pleasing bookmatched top, and, while some are bookmatched and beautiful! some are bookmatched and pretty lame [and in between]. most of them aren't, bookmatched. There are alot that are bookmatched but they glued the matched side to the body, giving,,, a cover match? Some of which are still really nice!, but alot get pretty far off. Then you have "are those the same piece of wood?"tops. I told them to search RG1070 on ebay and look at all the different "tops" and I'd be on the phone to Indo. Now I'm not sure bookmatch is in the spec, but because there are many that actually are match, I just assume that is the goal. If it's the goal they're failing, if it's supposed to be random they're doing a great job. But,,,, From a tech standpoint, fixing issues just takes too much longer *because* of the specs. I'm have within 2 jobs learned to absolutely hate stainless, and it's not wear on tools, it's the wear on my body, fingers, shoulders, thumbtips, they will eat your thumbtips as much sanding you have to progress thru. Oddly, alot of the RG6/7's are decent-ish. I'll revisit down the road and check the progress.
