According to the USPS website today (July 7th), it was "Dispatched to Sort Facility" on July 1st.
Since I am in the Military here in Germany, I don't expect to get it in the normal 3-5 day range.
Our mail works differently.
It's a mess to say the least.
TJ sent it Priority Mail, so I'd say it should arrive around the 14th.
Oddly enough, I've had guitars sent from Musicians Friend, and they were here in five days!!!
I think it's different with big companies.
I'm just glad TJ sent it!!!

Has he sent anyone else's ?

Sometimes they get caught in customs for a week.
Usually 5 to 7 working days to europe.

Now that I've noodled on it, here's my review:

PROs: Looks insane!!!
Sounds better than expected (not sure what type of humbucker)
Price
Everything fits and is solid
No one on my block has one


CONs: Waiting for it to be built!!!
Tiny nicks at the end of the fins from shipping (no big deal)
It's a big guitar so you REALLY have to watch your surroundings while standing
Good luck finding a case
I still can't play like Vinnie Vincent

Would I buy another????
If TJ had VV guitars that were already built and ready to ship, I'd buy another in a minute.

The guitar is great and even the wife says it's very cool (!!!).

Great to hear. All V finned guitars like that are a nightmare to look after the fins when you're playing.

Enjoy it and post a video if you can.

If the neck and headstock was spruced up a bit it would be hard to tell its not a jackson.

Yup! I'm VERY pleased with the guitar.
I'm pretty sure you'll be happy when you finally get yours.

I dinged it this morning. (UGH!!)
Nothing major.
I'm really not used to playing a guitar that's so long.
Small ding, though.
I'll borrow my daughters pink nail polish and touch it up!

One more thing, I do wish TJ would have put his logo on it.
If your going to build something like this, get the credit.
Not sure if I'll keep it blank or put something on it.

the neck is not made by tj so maybe thats why he didn't put logo on.

Tremolo looks slightly off center in pictures.

Teej, are you serious? This has taken waaaay too long, and what could have been a good thing has become painful for those waiting.

Also, no work on the frets does not sound good.

The frets were worked on. I leveled them. I dressed them. I set it up. When I got the neck it wasn't worked on.
It's not teejs fault in anyway shape or form for my tardiness. Kind of a non sequitur.

Last time I spoke to teej he was very nice and apologetic. Now I am on his case??

Now teej has mentioned this I will bring up some things that I would have let go.

1. Over 2 years to make a guitar body. Tj bought cheap neck and bolted it on.

2. Dings in guitar is not acceptable

3. Trem route is off. Who wants a guitar with bad routing?

4. 2 guitars to ship again only bodies coming up to 3 years.

5. Owes a shit load of money.

6. Wolfies.. freddies.. vics and others guitars are falling apart.

7. Can not wire electrics as most wiring he has done are fucked.


So no teej its not your fault but you obviously have very low standards and dont understand tj is a body shaper who can not paint well. Dings his guitars.. has terrible communication. . Takes almost 3 years and can nor route a tremolo.

Ah, gotcha, cool. When you said they were just hammered in, I thought you meant you just hammered them in and sent it off! Phew.
