Smile New member few questions

First of all I'm sorry if this doesn't belong here, if not move it.

So i'm new here, awesome forum you have here! Anyways my names Kevin I'm 21 from Saratoga Springs New York. I've been playing for about 7 years. I play a Carvin Legacy through an Avatar vintage 4x12 cabinet with two Vintage 30s and Two Greenbacks. Of course I'm using an Ibanez RG1570 prestige reverse headstock suede black finish with Evolution pickups. So enough about me on with the questions-

I was browsing and i saw the ad for ET guitars. Sounds like the route I would like to go. I've seen a lot of the swirls here and they're absolutely fantastic, and I would love one myself! I'm kind of in the market for a new guitar and this seems like an awesome idea.

As far as ET goes....I'm interested in building my own guitar. I'm interested in getting a Jem body and Jem neck from them.

Questions-
Say i get a Jem body and a Jem neck are they exact replicas of Ibanez necks/bodies? For instance would a Edge pro and all of its hardware simply bolt on no problems?

Body wise- Do they pre-drill all the holes say for pickups, holes for the pads on the neck? All the hardware holes pretty much. How are their swirl finish'? Durable? High quality?

Neck- How is the craftsmanship on their necks? Playability? Comfort? Durability?

How much does shipping to the U.S. roughly cost?

That's pretty much it. If any of you have any other suggestions, or someone else to look into I'm all for it, and sorry for the long post, this would be my first "custom" so I'd rather ask now then regret it later!

Re: New member few questions

Well the aesthetics are amazing and for less about $1500 building my own guitar to pretty much what i want is a good deal as i was gonna order a plain ibanez for around that much!
