Just got an LGM 8 string

Have just purchased this:

http://www.lgmguitars.com/guitars/cu...ic/andy_8.html

Andy sold it to his mate, as I think he's now building his own guitars, and I in turn bought it off him. Awesome guitar !! I was thinking last year of having one built at by Blackmachine in London (got a Universe MC and a Tele instead). This is exactly what I've had had made anyway (and it's got a better headstock!), really chuffed with it

Alder, Maple, EMG's...? That guitar must be really bright sounding.

Looks great though

Congratulations

nice and easy for me really...but then I've been using a Universe as my main guitar for over a year now, so there's not all that much to adjust to. Will be able to tell when I give it a proper playing this week though !

Re: Just got an LGM 8 string

I hate people showing off their LGM's because I'm still waiting for mine.

Regards

André

Re: Just got an LGM 8 string

Vibe's so bloody fast that he probably NEEDS that brightness just to keep the note attacks from blurring together.

Awesome, mate, can't wait to hear what you do with that thing.

Re: Just got an LGM 8 string

I got my leviathan 8-string last week, cool to see someone off the forum ending up with Andy's. But I seem to remember that the body was swamp ash?
