Thanks for the kind words, fellas.
When I first got the body from Alan, I mocked it up with the neck, and thought I'd made a horrible mistake, because the inlays on the PBK seemed a little out of place with the outrageous colors in the swirl. My 14 year old suggested that I go with white pickups to kind of tie it all together, and I think it worked perfectly!
The woodworking on the body, as Takin' a Ride mentioned, *is* outstanding. Alan used to get his bodies from Sims Custom Shop, and this is one of the last ones that Alan bought from Patrick. I've got to say that, aside from one pretty big f**k up, the body is perfect. Speaking of attention to detail:
That's what I discovered when I first when to mount the neck. I had to fill and drill on a brand new body, because the holes for the neck screws were drilled 4mm off. Kind of an unfortunate oversight in an otherwise very good example of Patrick's woodworking skills.
Anyway, aside from that, everything fits perfectly. It plays great with the Wizard neck, so it's a bit different feel from my other JEMs. I'm diggin' it.
