Yea, a 15 fret neck joint is unique. They moved the neck and bridge/saddle about 1" north to make room for the pickup. The sound hole is still in standard location for a 14 fret J. If I had a trained ear, I could probably hear a difference. That ain't happenin'.

Congrats, Dave. 'Would love to see it out in sunlight,  but sunshine's probably not going to happen any time soon.

Even if the 15 fret bumping the bridge closer to the soundhole might not sound too perceptible, where your picking hand contacts the strings might now be closer to the bridge (?). . . that might be noticeable.
