    Re: Holy Best NGD Ever (No Exaggeration)

    I'm really lucky that most days, my boss doesn't care when I start working as long as I put in the work. Because if I had to have started work today at a certain time, I would have been ****ed. I played this thing for a good hour and a half before leaving for work, and once I got to work I played it for another two hours. It's addicting.

        I like the back of that thing more than the front. The neck is supremo looking.

          One of my goals for this guitar was to make the back as awesome as the front. That 1 piece body and dark finish (both Mike's suggestions) really make it pop against the rosewood neck and the front of the guitar.

                I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

                    I am embarrassed to ask, but who is this Mike fellow? I see his name now and again on this forum.
                    Also, I see this mentioned with guitars and I can't figure it out: "JD". Feel like a fool, but I must ask out of curiosity. Thanks in advance.

                        That'd be me.

                        The body shape is my own design and it's named the "JD" after my father who I lost a few years ago to bladder cancer. Since he's the reason I'm capable of working with tools of any fashion he deserved the thank you in naming the guitar shape after him. All my guitars are named with years (1950, 1954, 1981 etc) so this one is technically the 1942 (father's birth year) but I always call it the "JD" since that's the name it started with. It can be done any way you can think up, as a Floyded hot rod like DA.001 or a fancier version like DA.003 on my site, as a crazy custom mix of ideas like Jordan's, as a traditional T style with ashtray bridge and control plate (have one of them on deck), as a LP with 4 knobs and an upper bout toggle and so on.

                          Beautiful guitar!!! The only thing I'm not absolutely fond of is the switch placement ... and I can live with that!
