    Just picked up a beautiful Wilkins Road Tested Jazz in satin coral pink. Set up was perfect and incredibly low with no fret buzz (4/64" at the E, A strings, 3.5/64" at the D string and 3/64" at the G string). I ended up raising each string 1/64" just for my tastes.

    The action at the 1st fret was perfect as was the nice vintage frets and fretwork. Relief was spot on at .008" at the 8th fret.

    The only issue (not Pat's fault) is the D and G string do not intonate since the screws are too short. I have a call into Hipshot to send longer screws (typical problem with their bridges, they always send longer/shorter screws if you need them)

    The first 2 pictures are a little "redder" than it actually is. The 3rd picture of the headstock, best represents the true color of the coral pink.

    That's a strangely attractive and saturated color. I mean, it looks cool! Congrats.
