Ok, NGD for me YAY! It's a Mayones Legend HSS

This is my first guitar with single coil pickups in it. I really needed that for the more clean songs and bluesy stuff. Very nice built guitar (compare it to ESP quality, it's absolutely on par, maybe even slightly better).
It has a very comfortable neck AND body. The back of the guitar just hugs you thanks to it's weird shape and cutaways. For the rest it's a pretty standard guitar: JB in the bridge, SSL1 in the middle and neck, alder body, set in maple neck, RW fretboard, nothing very fancy there. The tremolo is very solid and takes the piss with OFR's. Floating bridge, no locking nut, stays in tune like an OFR, but handles doublestops ALOT better.
So all in all, it's a pretty sollid guitar, very versatile, very basic. I'll enjoy that axe, that's for sure.

This is not all,

I also wanted to take this absolutely stunning beauty with me...:





...but I didn't
Thing is: the neck is absolutely not my cup of tea. It's a very plump D profile. Extremely flat at the back, but at the sides it's very bulcky and it felt really uncomfortable in my hands. There are other S7's coming this year with different neck profiles. I hope there will be hardtails amongst them that are just as beautifull as this one though. I really like the looks of this sweet instrument. And the sound it makes and the harmonics ^^
So you may expect a second NGD this year :p

Well that certainly is an odd shape. Out of curiosity, how often do you use the middle pickup? Looks great though, HNGD!

I'm not familiar with Mayones at all, but after seeing your pix, I have to ask the vulgar question- how much does something like that run? (I need to know so I can adjust my GAS list budget accordingly.)

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Congrats! The SCs bring the VH4 to a new level of awesomeness, yea? So different from the HBs.


Yeah, it's a totally different amp with SC's. more transparent, less compressed (not that a VH4 is a compressed amp, not at all, but the compression is alot less with the SC's.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
