    Re: NGD. Incoming build

    The black binding give a hard edge to the side





    The back is beautiful and the body is super thin and light



    I like the ridge at the headstock
    It's not in the way at all





    The body is about an inch and a quarter thick at the edge
    Super thin much thinner than either my Ibanez RGs or Gibson/Epiphone LP

    Really light I would say about 7.5 - 8 lbs

    Pickups are a bit dark.
    Fretwork is excellent
    They have a hole under the bridge to the pickup cavity
    For the piezo bridge
    The volume pot as a nice gradual taper
    Neck is a shallow D
    Not as thin as my Epiphone or RG
    But very near my slim D on my Gibson

    Balances well
    Just awesome
    Next week or so I'll swap out the bridge
    And pickups
    Because I can. Not because I dont like the ones in it

        Oh yeah, I'm taking that when you're not looking.
        Wonderful. It's a looker for sure. The binding gives it a real nice seperation.

          A sharp edge from the fade of the top to the red on back

          It is so thin

          I was playing just before bed and the pickups sound awesome

          I have some clips I gotta upload of my buddy playing it Thursday

          It sounds much brighter on my setup than his

                    Oh, I get it.

                    That's the way I do it so the strings can be loosened, but not removed, to do pup changes, etc. If you cut the strings right at the tuning post, you'll have a heck of a time trying to get the strings back in after removing them (presuming you want to save the strings).

                      I usually get just less than one wrap .but it's ok
                      Takes a bit for all that string to stretch out
                      It showed up "down tuned half a step"
                      And after sitting a day , last night it was down tuned again
                      Just more string to stretch

                        Ok here's a cellphone video of the stock pickups
                        No mods at all from the factory

                        Played thru the Bugera G5
                        At first I had the Biyang Tri Reverb in front with some amp reverb as well
                        Turned that off as you see in the video

                        I dont play that well but you get a sense of how it sounds

                        I'm kinda digging the stock pickups at the moment

                            ehdwuld, I've noticed on these Asian guitars that you have done you have very specific details in mind. How is communication with these people? Is there a language barrier, or do you speak a bit Mandarin? I find this process very interesting, and possibly something I may wish to try one day. I'm just leery of would my specifications be understood, and would they deliver on my expectations? You seem to have that worked out though.

                              Well it seems some of them use Google translate to read your text and to put their responses back in

                              One asked if I wanted a maple hat on the guitar

                              You have to use common words

                              Speak simply

                              Use pictures with arrows and such

                              Make sure they understand, they really want to make it exactly how you want
                              Make sure that they have enough to go on

                              Ask for pictures along the way, in case something goes wrong
                              On this current build
                              The logo on the headstock got tinted red by mistake
                              It was caught and corrected before shipment
