It's finally here after 2 months.  I ordered it on August 10 and it arrived yesterday so it's 2 months and 10 days.

BODY:
Swamp ash body from the showcase
Universal pickup route
Black-Red-Black sunburst on front and back
Routed for Gotoh 510 tremolo

Black/white/black pickguard

NECK:
Maple neck from the showcase
Rosewood fingerboard, 22 frets
SS6100 jumbo stainless frets
Standard thin
LSR nut
Gold metal Warmoth decal

Gotoh 510 tremolo
Schaller locking tuners
1 volume, 1 tone
All gold hardware including gold dome knobs, gold trem, tuners, neck plate and all the screws

Electronics:
HSH pickup configuration, it will be wired like Steve Vai's Green Meanie (I downloaded the schematic from DiMarzio):
Position 1=neck; position 2=middle+inner coil of neck humbucker; position 3=middle pickup; position 4=middle+inner coil of bridge humbucker; position 5=bridge
Bridge Pickup:  DiMarzio Mo'Joe, white with gold polepieces
Middle Pickup:  DiMarzio HS-2, white
Neck Pickup:  DiMarzio PAF Joe, white with gold polepieces

I also plan to install a kill switch and Tremol-No.

The neck, from what I can tell just by eyeballing it, is perfect.  I don't have a fret rocker yet so I'm not sure but I don't think it'll need much fret work.

Wow, really cool combo. That body has nice visible grain, and the fretboard is wild! Rosewood boards are my favorite and that one is perfection.
