Smile NGD 1997 J-Custom s3040bs

I bought this guitar almost 3 weeks ago and finally got around to doing an NGD. It's a 1997 J-Custom s3040bs and came with the original case bearing the same Reg. number as on the headstock. It was bought in Dublin Ireland in 1997 and I bought it from the original owner. There is a little tarnish on the pearl gold hardware but that is to be expected. Everything is stock and it is really nice to play and sounds great through my Mesa dual rectifier. Hope you guys like the photos. Thomas C.

Thanks very much guys. Looking forward to playing it a lot more. It was setup for gauge 10 strings but just changed it back to 9's tonight so will do a setup myself and see how it settles over the next few days. Happy days.


Another pic.

Thank you. From my research so far I know that 24 of this exact model were made in early '97. They were the first j-custom S series made. There was also an all white model s3040pl with exact same specs.

goddamn, those inlays are wicked cool. LOVE how the binding turns into the gold inlays up the neck. that gives me inspiration for a build in the future
