On the Vader, if you are going with Jet Black, you wouldnt need to add black back and sides. They will come that way by default. That paint option is for if you are picking something other than black, but want a black back.

I see your point, spudmunkey. I was unaware of that. Thanks!

Well, I just got an email this morning, from one of the techs. He advised me that my bass should be ready
by the end of the month. So now, it looks as though I will have the privilege of the full twelve weeks of waiting.
The order was placed on 8 November. 31 January will make twelve weeks.

So perhaps, I will see my Vader VB5 headless "horseman" some time in early February?! I only got a couple of options,
nothing fancy. There were people who ordered after me, with lots of goodies on their axes; & they are already enjoying
their guitars! Oh well. Everything's good in the proverbial hood!

We shall see what we shall see. I shall maintain a bright outlook! :)

I had a reasonably simply ZBM5 build too that took about the same timeframe, just that way it shakes out sometimes!

Yeah Captjag, I hear ya. Whenever someone orders a build, no one wants to go the full term of waiting.
But stuff happens. It'll come when it comes.
