    Cool guitar!
    I didn't realize this was a "signature" guitar until you posted, and went on to google St. Vincent.... :eek2:

    Looks like a compensated nut? Those work well. EB/MM necks are insanely well made. I haven't played the St. Vincent neck, and they do vary them by model, but the wood, workmanship, and finish are the best in the business. I would love to have a Ls Paul with a EB/MM neck profile and radius! While other companies sell out and cut corners and seem intent on jerking the customer around, EB/MM just keep on producing top quality guitars. I have a way old Sting Ray bass and an original Petrucci and nothing plays better than either of them. With the Petrucci, you can just look at it and it will play itself.
