  • Holy Best NGD Ever (No Exaggeration)











    Credit to XSSIVE for the awesome pictures, and of course the incredible guitar.

    This was really supposed to be my only new guitar this year. The build was started early this year, and I just kind of had a few extra NGD's between then and now. I wasn't planning on buying 3 PRSi, that just kind of happened. In the back of my mind though, I knew that there was only one guitar I wanted, and it was this one.

    Mike did an incredible job. This is a superb instrument, easily one of the best guitars I've ever played. The ebony board, stainless frets, and rosewood neck make this thing a speed demon. It plays like no other guitar I've picked up before. The body is incredibly comfortable, and on top of that, the whole guitar is only 7 pounds. Thanks to the high quality woods used on this build, it resonates like crazy. It sounds great plugged in - it's incredibly versatile with the chosen pickups, and that's without really even exploring the tap on the bridge pickup. For those interested, here are the specs:

    BODY STYLE: 1942 aka JD

    BODY WOOD: 1pc MAHOGANY w/ FLAME MAPLE CAP

    HEEL: CONTOURED

    BODY FINISH: DARK CHERRY BURST

    NECK WOOD: ROSEWOOD

    FINGERBOARD WOOD: EBONY

    RADIUS: 9.5" - 12"

    NECK SHAPE: C .820" - .880"

    NUT WIDTH: 1 5/8"

    FRETS: JESCAR 43080 SS (hidden tangs)

    NECK FINISH: NONE

    HEADSTOCK FINISH: BLACK

    TUNERS: LOCKING HIPSHOT STAGGERED

    BRIDGE: HIPSHOT HARDTAIL

    BRIDGE PICKUP: ZHANGBUCKER (T style)

    NECK PICKUP: ZHANGBUCKER (P90)

    CONTROLS: 250K VOLUME w/ TREBLE BLEED, 250K TONE w/ COIL TAP, 3 WAY TOGGLE ON LOWER HORN

    HARDWARE COLOR: BLACK

    Best of all, Mike was incredibly easy to work with. If you want a hands down incredible guitar that plays like BUTTAH, drop him a line. I'm sure I'll be getting another guitar from him in the future.

    Oh and I thought I'd toss one more picture in, just to show off the INCREDIBLE top on this guitar a bit more.

    BA-BAM!

        Hmm? This is the only one I own. I think you've got me mixed up with Ayrton.

              DAYUMM!
              That's sexy as Barry White playing in the background,
              champagne on ice,
              strawberries dipped in chocolate,
              lit candles,
              and your favorite hottie wearing nothing but whipped cream and a smile.

              Good job, X!

                        Wow

                        That is amazing!

                        No surprise considering who made it.

                            Bar patron thinking - Wonder if these guys know "Free bird"?
