Sound:This guitar has a very full sound. The bass is boomy and the trebles clear, a very nice sounding guitar. Pretty much a standard bluegrass guitar in sound. I really can't wait to drive it in a jam session though and see how it will cut through, seem fairly loud as of right now.

Finish/Construcion: Very clean, no glue showing, no smell, feels sturdy, and it's light.
I can not see a problem with the construction or finish. The top seems to be a good cut of wood and vibrates nicely and it is clean on the inside.
As for finish and looks it is simple, I would say models after a D-18, but the D-18 have black binding this one has tortise. I do however wish it had some dot inlays.

Play: Very good playing, the slightly wider string spacing at the saddle will take a little getting used to but no big deal. It feels wider atleast. The frets at good(they do seem a little narrow, does not seem to hurt my playing at all though) , the fretboard is smooth.

Overall: I am happy with it, pretty basic guitar, no thrills, projects nicely, feels nice, overall a good buy.


This is a cheaper guitar, but we do not see many NGDs here so I thought I would post.

Also, since it is a solid top would I need to buy a hygrometer and a humidifier?

Nice lookin box. I'm partial to the plainer guitars. I really like the look of the fretboard with no dots or inlays.
It's Only Rock and Roll, But I like It
