Within the last two years. The chambered bodies are Basswood. The pickups are blacktop filtertrons, but I am not certain of their origin.

Since I have a live specimen, the workmanship is great. Tuners could be better in my opinion, the rattle matic bridge needs changing on spec to a tru arch or similar design. At 90 bucks, a tru arc is expensive, but it sure cures any tuning and rattling issues.

Again the Projet falls into that catagory of guitar that people feel the instant need to start changing things.
