As the title says, you're better off looking at someone else's NGD, there's a few out there.

Not much of note to see here that you ain't seen before.


Are you still here?

I bet you like watching cricket/paint drying.


I suppose enthusiasts of said activities are still people too.


So anyway, I got a new guitar.
And when it showed up I opened the case.


Then lifted the lid.


And a photo was taken:


Yeah, not too bad I thought.

What has it got? Well, it has gold hardware. And a pickguard that has gold round the edge. Not real gold, just plating.
The neck is mahogany with a maple fingerboard with no inlays. Makes it a bit trickier if you weren't exactly amazing in the first place lol


Oh it's an aluminium alloy body. Or 'aluminum' if that's what you say.


The humbuckers are a '59 and a JB.
Push pulls do the phase/split thing.
Is it weird we share a bed?

And what is it like to play?
The neck is something else. Kind of like a 60s profile and the surface to touch feels great, low on friction. Action is low and you could get up to some serious shredding speeds on this.
Plugged in you can get all the classic twin humbucker sounds you'd expect. Really versatile, through cleans for funk to as much br00tz as is bearable when distorted.
It might lose some of its looks as time goes by but then so do women

It was a gift... albeit from me to me .

Sorry for boring you to tears.

HNGD! Do love me some all gold hardware, though I know too many people who think it's just way too much.

How heavy is it? (weight. sound too I suppose ) I always imagined aluminium bodies being quite heavy to hold, especially if it's solid, even though aluminium is supposed to be quite light in contrast to iron.

Thanks all

Not solid mahogany '59 LP heavy that's for sure. More like a chambered one.
Soundwise, yeah it can do a nice thick distortion. Lots to explore on that still

when i read the title, i was expecting a typical sunburst strat or a blonde tele or a cherry sunburst LP or a schecter with lots of abalone binding and inlays and a flame veneer top

HNGD - i think that's officially the shiniest guitar i've ever seen. And i like shiny things

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

One of the best NGD's ever. Seriously, I love it. Reminds me of Buzz Osborne's guitar. Electrical Guitar Company makes it.

Really awesome. HNGD!

Do you notice any difference in sustain / shimmer if you compare this beauty to your average Gibson Les Paul?

Thanks.

Sure, unplugged, the raw acoustic sound is ringier and a little louder than a wood LP.
As research has apparently shown, body material doesn't make much difference to tone (*can of worms alert!*) so it's kinda similar plugged in but it has different pickups etc so it's hard to say what the difference is...
