Super Mega Belated NGD '87 77FP

Sorry guys, had this since February!

It was a 30th birthday present from my wife (what a wife!)

She's a bit of a player, but not too bad at all. Plenty of life in the frets. I gave it to my guy for a set up, and he filled in some of the bigger chips in the body. I wasn't too bothered about it looking mint, just wanted the bigger ones filling in so they didn't get any worse if it got a knock.

Action is reasonably low, but I'd like it a bit lower to be honest.

It took me about a month to get comfy with it, and I was spending more quality time with my egen, but one day it just clicked!

It's so comfy, and feels just right palyed in...so it should, it's nearly as old as me.

Without further ado



The Egen's nearly camoflague on my floor

Looks really nice, although I don't think it's an '87. The FP didn't come out until '88. If yours have an 87XXXX serial number, it would have been built in '87 and sold as an '88.

Re: Super Mega Belated NGD '87 77FP

Tried it on my wife and she wouldn't go for it - I guess after 20 odd guitars my excuses for new guitars are wearing thin and a 30th (or in my case 35th) birthday just doesn't illicit the same response anymore....

Re: Super Mega Belated NGD '87 77FP

Cool man. My wife got me my 7vWh so it's pretty awesome when that happens. I really want all three of the florals. I didnt like the new black FP when I first saw it but I tell you what........ These things grow on you and now I think the black one is the second best looking jem of the entire range, after the original FP.

That FP of yours looks to be in amazing condition for it's age. Nice score dude.
