    I'm good. Wrong bevel shape around the pickguard. Oh but it does have the tie bar grommets for hardware Iommi never used. Glad it has that.
    Probably a great guitar nonetheless. I'll have a luthier finish the job if I get one.
    Did Iommi's guitar have white P-90's?

    The "tie bar grommets" were actually used for a stop bar tailpiece. I'm pretty sure the pickups had metal covers to help with noise/RF interference.

    It's a repro of his actual guitar. It's correct to that spec. And the pickup covers are chrome, not white.

    Of possibly even more interest is the Adam Jones Silverburst Custom. Looking forward to seeing that.
