That was well worth the wait Thom, absolutely perfect colour for a maple neck too! Love these builds where everything just slots into place!
How are those pups compared to the rosewood board ones?
I'm doin a daphne blue with jap jazz pups at the mo, bastardized from an affinity jazzmaster, but it's been a ballache filling the swimming pool route in Rolling Eyes
I'll see how the pups fair before investing in handwound jobbies.

Cheers! Having had it a couple of weeks now, I'm still loving it. It sounds really different to the rosewood board one, this is what I've got in each:

RW: Bareknuckle Vintage Hot Neck, Nailbomb Humbucker Bridge
MP: Fender VMOD Neck, Bareknuckle Hot Bridge

The new guitar feels/sounds a lot snappier, must be a combination of the single coils and the maple neck. I would say that the RW one sounds rounder/smoother, and what has been surprising is the humbucker response. The Nailbomb is a HOT pickup, and I've got one in an LP and it can be really raw and brutal. But in the Jazzy it doesn't seem to in the same way, it feels a lot tamer, and is much more hot/fat/bluesy. When I had the VMOD bridge in the original guitar I found it completely uninspiring, sterile and just a bit flat which is probably why it stayed in the parts box.

Post a build thread for yours! Look forward to seeing it.

Got a new pickguard from my wife for my birthday, and just put it on with some black pickup covers...I think it looks good!
