i officially suck at gifs

so first i gotta thank harold who found it on digimart and suggested i contact dangerdog if i wanted it. huge thanks harold.

i also have to thank meestursparkle aka dangerdog. i couldn't be happier with the service i got. he picked it up, sent great quality pics because he happend to be set up for it - bonus, weighed and shipped it fast, very well packed, like hurricane proof well packed. i don't have to buy bubble wrap for a year. seriously.

here's what he sent me, his is pictured in the pics with two of them. he scored one as well.

SlickPic - Jamesporter's Gallery

thank you james, i really appreciate it and congrats on yours!

here's the take.

according to the warranty card it's a BFV-2010K.






got a bit of flame in there.

REVIEW: The guitar is stupid light, i almost worried about the wind knocking it over when i was taking pics outside. and it's not thaat windy. just under 6 pounds



the fit and finish is as good as i've seen. it stacks up there with PRS, Anderson, Suhr, and about every custom shop guitar i've played or owned.

the neck isn't as thick as i expected. without measuring it's slightly thicker than a typical R0 but not by much. it's in my goldylocks zone for sure.

pick ups are the Bacchus BRH-1 set with an alnico 3 bridge, alnico 5 neck. i suck about as bad at describing pick ups as i do at making gifs but they are fat and open sounding, they match very well, and the bridge is more balanced than mid heavy. they sing and i won't be changing a thing.

the finish is nitro at least on the top coat as it's starting to blemish the edges of the v at their ends where some leather inside the bag makes contact. i'm looking at those skb bag/hard cases.

Thanks for checking out my NGD thread!

haha shit. I only use a tablet and it has predictive text... Hopefully it's a North Korea (aka best Korea) V.

greg is your bacchus to blame for the current tensions in the region? kim jong-un wants a bacchus but can only get an epiphone?


seriously though, that's beyond awesome.

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.

thanks everyone, really happy with it.

Quote by Ippon
Congrats!

How's that gigbag? Getting a proper hard case?


it's a serious gig bag, aside the leather eating at the finish of the tips of the v.





i'm thinking i'll get one of those skb hardshell bag things. kind of a bag/case hybrid?

Ippon, that case is hideous, haha.

Hideous, like most protection, condoms, etc.; but, it offers protection! For such a nice guitar, I'd go hard case vs. anything else, like tube vs. SS, etc.
#38
thanks guys.

if the soft case (which aren't really that soft, they are form fitted to the guitar) are as sturdy as the one i remember then i'll be good with that.
Quote by JesusCrisp
Aaaaaand the GAS started.

there was one of those a couple weeks ago for about $600 plus shipping. so roughly $750 to your door. that was a stupid good deal.
