    Sweet! The Zia is my favorite JP shape these days, and the matching quilt/burl is gonna be very striking.

    Zia shape is awesome on 5ers.
    Oil Oil!!! You can't go to holidays before oiling these basses...:D
    I didn't notice that you use Neutrik Locks for the jacks. Is that new???

    I'm getting visions of a Zia 5 with wenge/ebony neck and buckeye top (with matching headstock) over mahogany or korina. Is that wrong?

    :bag:

  17. It looks like you have a very hard G.A.S attack...

    PS: Sweet symptoms: Zia 5 Buckeye burl and wenge/ebony neck...:hyper:
