    Thanks, it's quite enjoyable to play now too.
    The level job I did on the frets along with scalloping 21-24 are significantly noticeable.

    That's looking good! I've thought about using one of his bodies to replace my rg7620 that's all beat up. How's the quality?

    Rock solid quality, so much to the extent that I haven't had to re-intonate the bridge in swapping bodies, which I've never encountered before. I literally bolted it up, installed the giblets, then did some minimal action/truss rod tweaks, done.
    I used it for 2 sets at church today & got lots of compliments. It really sounds like the 7620 body did. I haven't made any tonal changes to any of my presets.

    perle makes good bodies, I've got a destroyer body from him. It's quite heavy but it sounds great.

    I had my eye on a mahogany JS-7, but in retrospect, I'm glad I got this, it's more tele shaped & less stock looking that the JS which lives in that superstrat shape category.
