Yeah, He's tried selling that one before. And as before, I pointed out that he didn't "custom order" that guitar.

Not impossible that he ordered it from a store, and one of the guys at the store wanted a PBK with a DY neck. Since the necks are different in thickness it would make sense. It's not unthinkable that he thought he custom ordered it from a store, and was given that guitar. I don't think he actually did, but who cares. It's not like his custom order adds anything to the price when you know what neck it is.

On the other hand, if that neck is as thick as a DY and got the rosewood/pyramid combo, it would be a one off. Someone buy it, now!

Re: What planet is he on!!

Back in the early 90s there were a number of stores in the UK from which you could order JEMs with different necks. FCN, the then UK distributer freely sold JEM necks to certain stores and you'd often see them listed for sale in the magazines of the time.

And to answer the Euphor's question... I've seen one other DY with a PBK neck, it belonged to a chap who did quite well in a Guitarist Magazine "Guitarist of the year" competition in about 92.

Granted I think this guy is making more of things that the guitar warrants, but it's not as misleading a description as folks might think.
