That thing's going to be brutal. :applause:

Gloss neck?

Are their other pearl finishes derived from a pearl topcoat? I don't believe i've ever seen that option separated out like that before. :think:

Yes to the gloss neck.
As far as I know, the PTC has only been used on the JBPB and over classic white.
I had inquired about doing the PTC over the Primer Grey back on 4/5/18 and
I was also told that by the look on Jeff's face when asked about this, that he had not thought about
using the PTC over other colors.

maybe later paint the pearloid tuners white, to matck the other white elements more closely. do you expect the PTC to have a dramatic effect?

No, I think it will be subtle, but give some life to a otherwise flat color.

Post a video of that Thoruim pickup when you get the guitar! I would love to see if it holds a candle to the M22SD
My Kiesel/Carvin collection: ST300 (M22SD bridge, S60A middle, Twin Blade neck), SCB6 (S22B bridge, S22J neck), Bolt Classic (AP11's in all positions), SH550 (S22T in the neck and bridge), AC375 and CL450. Also a Carvin V3M 50watt head with a Carvin 1x12 cabinet and Fender Jazz Bass.
