    It looks classy indeed. Thanks!

    Great indeed. Did you use a switch or a push-pull pot for eng?

    Looks and feels great. Stability seems good so far. We'll see how it holds once the weather starts to get warmer. People say that roasted maple necks need minimal adjustments (or none at all) throughout the year.
    Enjoy your JS. Looks cool too (more of surfy vibe).

    The first time that I saw one of those my eyes bugged out. What a great guitar. Three P90’s and that fantastic Tremolo. Looks great. Congratulations.

    Yeah, forgot to talk about the tremolo. I had the same one in another guitar before. Very smooth and expressive with no tremolo arm wobble at all.

    After little bit of playing during yesterday's rehearsal (we were mostly setting up computers, mixers etc for recording) I think I may raise the action a little bit. I went probably too low (around 1.3-1.5 mm, high-low E) just because I could (no fret buzz, no chocking with huge bends, nada) and I think I prefer my action at around 1.6-1.8 mm.
