Looks to me the wait was worth it *

Give us a run down on construction, fit and quality of the inlay....I'd like to read it.

Very nice looking neck :biggrin:

OK, the rundown....

Profile--matches the UV777PBK perfectly. Left bare, no oils or such on the back of the neck.

Fretwire is the 6140 found on the older Jems or UVs. Not jumbo like the current stuff. I like the feel of the old fretwire and a maple neck.

Upper 6 frets are scalloped--two color vine inlay. The inlay is very nice. On a maple neck it is more difficult to mask problem areas, but this came out top notch! I thought the vine itself was a hair thicker than normal.

A 7 string maple neck, rock solid feeling, vine inlay with scalloped upper frets. Overall a nice piece of work from a Jemsite vendor.
