STM1 quality?

Really want an Iceman. Was playing on building one using Warmoth parts, but saw this.
Not much of a Dragonforce fan, but neck-through dimarzios are appealing.

Not appealing is the painted neck and Edge III, but I have a German OFR, and am not afraid to route a little to accomodate it.

I see it's made in Indonesia tho.

Anyone have experience with it? Or am I better off (and "cheaper off") going
with building one myself?

Re: STM1 quality?

Well as you noted, it's Indonesian made, has a wizard II, and an Edge 3. A lot of people don't really like any of those. You already noted you don't like the neck or the edge 3, so you'll be paying a bunch of money for a body and some evolution pickups. I say build your own using Warmoth parts.
