NGD 540PHH Minty Goodness!

I just got it today from the auction site which shall not be named. It is in excellent condition, no finish cracks or cracks behind the nut. Sorry for the crappy pictures, the color is much better in person.

Then I won't tell you that I have a 540PSH currently being refinished in original DY

Re: NGD 540PHH Minty Goodness!

What is the scale length on the 22 fret (your) version?
I notice that your neck-heel meets the fretboard at the 21st fret. On my 24 fret version it meet it at the 23th.

Pretty nice find. Has it been refinished? I don't see any holes for the pickguard.

Re: NGD 540PHH Minty Goodness!

I took it apart and it appears to be the original finish. The scale is 25.5"

There was a 540PII without a scratchplate, can't recall the model number... came in both HH and HS pickup configurations. I had DY non-plate.

Just curious, Taracatac, how much did you have to let go?

Congrats.

I didn't even see that one on the bay, I usually watch pretty closely for them just to see what the market is doing.
