Re: I will be like Ayrton

It's so annoying, like the people who post "new guitar day" when they've only just bought it off the 'bay, and the only photos they have are those from the seller . . .

Re: I will be like Ayrton

Sorry guys, pics coming in a bit. Had a argument with Mrs Cid last night and never got around to getting pics taken. After I wash a pile of apology dishes I'll get pics.

Actually, I meant be like Ayrton in that I will start a thread before the item is here.
Anyway, pics like I promised.

Case:



Interior



Full



Close up



Head



Stats:
Mahogany/flame maple
Ebony board
57 Classic/ 57 Classic + (N/B)
Gold Fretwire
Steinberger gearless tuners
Ted McCarthy designed Logo (big deal)

Body feels slightly smaller than a standard Explorer, but not as small as the Pro. The 50th Ann. V felt alot like my old V-90, so I'm guessing this is based on the Explorer 90.

Re: NGD 12/07/08

Diggin' the inlays and the white neck binding. If that ages to cream after a few years it'll look awesome. Not to poop on your NGD b/c the guitar looks great but isn't that kind of a lackluster flame top for $2000+? It's probably just one of those things that doesnt come out right in pics but looks different in person though. And are those the 40:1 gearless tuners? How are they? I was thinking of getting some for one of my guitars but they're pretty expensive (online search shows they're about 100 bucks).

Sometimes the best flames are the most subtle ones, IMO. I hate those wavy extreme quilt tops.

Nice guitar Cid!!!
