Looks ace.
Quite envious, I must say.

Dots and binding. I much prefer these without the big inlays and with the plain tops. Yours is one of the coolest I've seen.

Aye, not a fan of overly fancy inlays either.

The larger inlays on Yamaha SGs are amongst the most tasteful in my opinion, I really like them.
But that doesn't detract anything from this, it's a fine looking guitar as it is.

Let's not jinx the delivery time; this is EGC we're dealing with here...

(What's the neck depth like on yours, anyhow?).

Been playing this all evening and just remembered it has coil taps... Fancy push button ones. The split neck pickup is a wondrous sound fat but not too bassy.

Good point. Where would I take the measurement from?

Back of the neck to the front of the fretboard - squint through a shatterproof ruler is my preferred method.
