I bought this body about 2 years ago . so I dont know the service these days... sorry.
but when I bought it, the service was 'fast', approx one or two months at most, but even could be a few weeks (I don't remember exactly).

Re: DC02: Jem Project 'Intense Rock II'

Have all the bodies you received from Monster been finished correctly?

I bought a body off him, and the trem cavity was too small for an Edge (I specified that I would be using an Edge when I ordered it) and the trem post anchor holes were too small.

I bought the body about 2 years ago, and it was delivered within 1 month of ordering.

I bought the body about 2 years ago, and it was delivered within 1 month of ordering.
the two bodies that I got from him (DC02 & DC03), have little issues.
the DC03 body, the lo pro edge bridge didn't fit well in the bridge cavity bridge, and I had to fix it with the router.
now this DC02 body is with the luthier and I can't say you about this problem.
as I said, other little problem is the anchors bridge holes. they was 10mm diameter and the real diameter are 11 or 11.5mm.
but no others big problems. they are easy to fix.


here is that I mean:












in any case, I think that all customs bodies from all luthiers always need fix them a little.
so its difficult receive a body from a luthier that does not need a little of work.

(sorry my english)
