My understanding is that it would be 24-fret. Not sure if that would mean a body like a GH3, or more like the outline of an Aries with a pickguard...or a new body closer to the Hurricane's... :think:

Ideally it would have the HSS layout with colored pickups, the angled humbucker and three mini switches.

The Becker bolt on and both Howe models are similarly designed, they have a neckplate. So no to the Aries idea. The G3 seems the natural choice as the starting point for this new model.
What was the scale length on Jason’s guitar? If 24 3/4 , I doubt they would keep that aspect. Based on shape and pup and bridge placement, I’d say that it is a shorter scale than 25.5.

This wouldn't be replacing the JB models that are already offered would they?
Saving up for:

JB200C
JB100 White/White w/ Black Hardware
JB100 Blood Red w/ Black Hardware
SCB6C Jet Black w/ Gold Hardware
DC700C White/White w/ Gold Hardware
K7H Deep Red Flame w/ Black Hardware and Binding
DC700H Deep Purple Flame w/ Gold Hardware
