    After months of waiting, it's finally here, and it doesn't disappoint. It's lighter, looks better, sounds better, feels better, and is all around a huge improvement over the standard JP6 and even the standard BFR's.

    My ONLY complaint is that the frets aren't as large as i was expecting them to be. They're certainly not as "jumbo" as the frets on my Charvel re-issue, which I absolutely love. Maybe I just need to cut my fingernails. :X

    Running late for work, so, here are the pics:

    That finish is excellent - after the orange 7 string this is probably the nicest JP I've seen.

    I love the BFRs JP. I was lucky enough to play a couple, and a standard Albert Lee, best guitars I have played besides Parker Flys. Love the black bridge and hardware, and the ebony board. I want one of these in a bright green, maybe someday:) Nice score man:) I LOVE IT!

    Congrats! Awesome shots! Those are definitely some of the best pics I've seen of a JPX yet! Now I really can't wait for mine. Should be a week and a half to two weeks hopefully.

    Oh MAN, what a boss ass guitar!
    If that thing had a schallar hannes bridge, it'd be the most perfect thing ever!
    However, no complaints as is. It gorgeous in every way.
    I bet it sounds and plays even better than it looks too :D
