    That is pity and a peeve.
    As for the sparkles, I like green by far the most, but I don't know if they were just custom one offs and besides that, I highly doubt that one ever showes up used in Europe...

    This is my beloved Wirebird:

    Love me a good wirebird and that does not disappoint. I love Dez's from good tiger, black with the purple paisley underneath

    The sparkles look interesting but the wood figuring on the neck is gorgeous! As for the spring noise in your tremolo just stuff in some pre-cut foam inside the springs that will deaden the sound completely.:agreed:

    I have several JP6's and they are my FAV neck! I have two (soon a third) in Medallion Gold and Pearl White that although are sparkly finishes, they're not what they call a "sparkle". EBMM made a sparkle finish in what they call "sludge" which was really unique. Have you checked your S/N with EBMM's search site? It might be a sludge, they're really hard to photograph and appear silver sparkle in photos.

    Don't block the trem, the JP6 trem is the BEST stable non-floyd trem I've ever used!

    CONGRATS!!

    I put a perfectly fitting piece of foam from a BKP box directly under the springs, fits perfectly and stops the resonances.

    Feel free to supply us with some pictures ;)

    I don't think the Trem is bad either, just don't use it at all.
    Tried it for a second and I really had to laugh:
    It's totally caricatural for me.

    Apart from the fact that I don't listen to music where trems are used, I have no ambitions to incorporate this into my style.

    In the appendix there is a screenshot of the serial number query (I already took care of this before the purchase).
