    There is more for the neck to connect to/more surface area. That is fact.


    My post was more about your prior comment that once you reach the joint, you are stopped dead in your tracks. What the hell are you playing? Do you thumb over everywhere you play on the neck? I get that its a preference thing, I prefer the AANJ to be honest, but to say that square heels are prohibitive to the point that everything past the 14th fret is rendered useless is just ridiculous. Unless you are like 4 years old, which I applaud your vocabulary and ability to form coherent sentences.

    If it's just free, everyone will have one. It has to be free, one of a kind, gifted personally to me.

    Not crazy about leaving the carve unfinished, but it looks like it should be a solid axe, just need to hope Iron Label QC gets improved.
    That neck pickup sounds amazing.

    Great playing too man, material sounded killer.

    Also, my earlier prediction is looking to be coming to fruition: the Premium line non-sig guitars are going to be rolled back and phased out, at least in the USA/North America.

    Not surprisingly given the output lately and the rise of the Iron Label line.

    Still sticking around for the bass lines though, which is where they really shined.

    Non signature Premiums were gone from the US the day they lost the lawsuit over the ZPS ;)

    They have been killing it with the (Premium) basses for a few years now. I wish there was so much cool new stuff and will to try new things in the guitar lineup every year.

    Hey Rich, are you able to comment on any potential MIJ production UVs in the works for later this year/next year? Not looking for specifics, just a general yay or nay situation.

    I have no idea if they'll UV or if they'll JEM7 again, but I do believe there will be something MIJ for next year and not just the Premiums.

    Right on. I heard a rumour about something for next year, but I'm assuming if that were true, they'd not want to pull focus from the P&W Anniversary models by talking about it yet.

    IMHO, Herman Li sure can spec out a tasty guitar:

    It's really annoying that they spec out beautiful gold hardware then leave the black plastic selector on there. Probably an easy fix but it would make it so much nicer.

    same with this one from last year

    If I bought that guitar first thing to happen would be gold pickup covers and selector switch.

    and then maybe evo gold frets.

    Wow they finally are doing the Herman model in orange. That was the color of his first custom shop. I remember an old Total Guitar I still have where he mentioned getting that and just a year or two later they made his sig in purple instead.

    I'd like them to make wooden selector plate.
