NGD Black 540R

Got this one about a week ago and it's finally settled in after a big change in string gauge. My first black radius. I put an '87 Pro540R neck on it and Duncan Triple-Shot pickup rings. Very nice. But the thing shows finger prints like crazy.

Very sexy. What I do with my guitars that show "prints" easy is take the plastic that comes on electronics like printers or phones that self stick and put them in the places where my arms or hands touch. No marks that way

Re: NGD Black 540R

Fix that low E saddle!

And what's with the INF pickups? Email me and I'll send you something proper!

Looks great! I recently got a black 540LTD with the AANJ. I was pretty sure I would refinish it pearl white, but the black is growing on me.

I happen to like the Inf sets. They split well and aren't uber resistance.

Ha. Yeah I'll move that E back tonight.

Whenever I or my wife get itchy about how many guitars I have I always fall back on "at least I'm not into cars or playing golf". That's some serious time and money, those two hobbies.

Thanks. Black is a pain in the @ss to photograph. I never had high expectations for selling black bodies back when I was into that. On the plus side, it does hide some imperfections pretty well. There are several solid dings on the black one I just got but I don't see them unless they sneak up on me or I'm looking for them.
