7. Does it warp or bend in hot and cold weather?
One of the major advantages of the solid T6061 aluminum neck is it doesnt suffer so much from the neck warping that usually plagued past guitars. If you go from extreme temperature changes then yes, it will a bit, but on average its not affected. The basses have a hollow neck so they are a bit more prone to temp changes but the aluminum fretboard and all helps with this as well.

We've actually discussed this guitar here before.  If I recall correctly, it was Jay that pointed out that it has no fingerboard radius.  Dead flat.  Otherwise, I think it's pretty keen.  Somebody needs to put a regular Jazzy neck on it.

I think you can custom order the fingerboard..

Seems like these are pretty expensive one offs..
