Hmmmn... Is that your inlay work on the $110 Taiwanese/Ebay neck?

I wish! No, that's the way it came. The inlays are very precisely done. I suspect the shapes and the pockets were cut with a laser or something along that line.

[Edit: Modify that last paragraph. The inlay pieces are cut out cleanly, but closer examination reveals a lot of gap-filling around the inlays. The pocket cutouts are pretty loose fits for the inlays. See photo.]

I have discovered that the wood, whatever it is, is fairly soft. It looks like maple, but it sure isn't sugar maple.

Well, it's done, mostly. The action may need a bit of a tweak, but otherwise I'm declaring it done.
