So it's not exactly a NGD, as I've had this guitar for about a month, but this is the first chance I have had to actually post it.

Now, onto the pictures (sorry for the blurriness):

How does it play/sound? Is it worth they hype/money?

Looks beautiful! HNGD!


It plays like a dream; the PLEK setup really makes a difference. It has to be the first guitar that I haven't had to take time to adjust to the neck.

As for the sound, it has to be the most versatile guitar I have played. It can go from very, very bright cleans to the grittiest distortion and never sound out of place. In addition, I can change BOTH pickups from being either single coil or humbuckers, can put the bridge pickup out of phase, and can also turn on the pizeo pickup for electric-acoustic style sounds and set how much I want to blend that sound with the magnetic pickups.

The robot tuning function is also very nice, I can choose from 15 different tunings and tune to one of them in less time than it takes to read this sentence. It's accurate to within .2 cents, so it is very nice. In my opinion, it's worth the money, although I don't think it's going to change the face of music as we know it.

HNGD! hope u enjoy it.

What amp are u playing?


When practicing, I primarily rely on Guitar Rig 3 because it's convenient for a college dorm. However, I have tested this guitar on a Fender Bassman, a Marshall JCM 800, an Orange Rockerverb 50 and a Mesa/Boogie Lone Star, and the tone didn't disappoint on any.

Sadly it seems god put Leftys on this planet to Screw them over on Guitar Prices!!

also i doubt it will ever be made as a Lefty due to the fact that its an extremely limited run, if thats a 1st edition one then it will be worth a pretty penny some day.

ive sadly not had the chance to play one yet but ive heard great things about them for 'Robot' Guitars.

sorry to hijack this thread alittle but thats not uncommon, when giving a starter a guitar you let them find the way they are comfortable with it whether left handed or right. alot of leftys in my expiriance fidn it more comfortable to play right handed just because its easier for them. Chances are you probably did the same thing without subconciously

Yeah when I first grabbed a guitar im pretty sure I held it like a righty. It just seems that, since I write with my left hand, and do more activities that are gentle and precise with the left, that the left hand ought to go on the fretboard. If you ask me, right handers should be playing lefty guitars

very very nice! i've been looking into installing a piezo in my bfg for a little more versatility. would you say it's worth it? i've heard it can sound like a dead-on acoustic, and that it can sound loud and harsh. how do you like it?

Piezos are weird things, they can work and they can also backfire. may work on your BFG tho but iver never seen one done on it so cannot give you an 100% on how it will sound.

I really like it, especially since I don't have an electric-acoustic and that adds the capability to sound like one. It can sound loud, but I wouldn't call it a harsh sound by any means: I can crank up the distortion on an amp and it will still sound fairly clean.

It's great if you want an electric-acoustic sound. If that is what you are going for, then read up on it and try it out.
