The spalted maple pro? yep. Had to take it to the luthier for a non-vanishing buzz around the 7th fret. Turned out to be a mild neck twist (scary) but he managed to fix it with a fret level. Plays better now too. I need to fix the output jack and actually set up the floyd on it again.

Considering swapping the dimarzio evo in it for a super distortion, if I can find one for cheap. It's a bright pickup for such a naturally bright sounding guitar (like brighter than an RG).
