Long Delayed NGD! E-II SV

So I went to see Cain's offering during their first 2 live shows as a band when they came to Japan back in February. I had a chance to meet Jani Liimatainen and blew it so to make up for it, I bought this guitar to make myself feel better

I love everything about it, except the EMG81 in the neck. It's so thin. I need to crank the bass on my Amp's eq to get a decent sound out of it. Will probably change these out for the 85X/81X at some point.

Oh forgot to mention that this guitar is the 2016 model that was announced for re-release at NAMM this year. The fact I could find one of these, so shortly after NAMM, AND in Japan is a minor miracle in and of itself

The strap I use with her? An Ibanez strap that was only sold on the Ibanez USA webshop with Sharktooth inlays ESP sawtooth+Ibanez sharktooth inlays=metal BEAST

BTW, here's a real simple demo I made to demonstrate the EMG booster circuit in the guitar. It's the mini-switch below the pickup selector. I did this through the clean channel of my Yamaha THR10 amp (my H&K needed new preamp tubes and it hadn't come back yet)

That booster is a MONSTER.
