Finally getting around to my NGD thread. I've only had this guitar for 4 months, so this thread is long overdue. Many guys on the original forum always said that the '08 reissues that gibby made were really good players, so I thought that I would get one built for myself. The goat man bought the remaining stock of raw necks and bodies from the Nashville shop many years ago, so I had him build one to my specs. I settled on trans purple as the color. The purple stain was so dark because of the poplar body, so we opted to go with a holoflash finish on the front of the guitar. Matching headstock too. I had a set of Dimarzio pups lying around, so we put them in this body. I don't remember which model they were, but they sound amazing in this guitar. Had him install my favorite gold thin fretwire, which is hard as nails. She's a great player and I am glad that I had it made. Sorry for being a lurker for the past few months, but I do check in here several times a week. Here's some porn for ya.

Marvin wanted to rub his special goat oil all over this guitar so that it would have mojo. dielaughing
