Re: NGD, finally my grand prize!

Right on brother!! I love mine, amazing guitars. These things sound soooo friggin sweet with the mahogany and maple and the fixed bridge. I still have not figured out a use for the extra F the 25th fret affords me but it sure is cool as hell to look at!

Very nice score, you will not be disappointed.

Yep, I got the strap, hang tags, warranty card, manual, and pick. The seller is the original owner, and he bought it new in Japan.

I had a friend pick it up this evening, and he will be back in Atlanta this weekend.

You are going to LOVE it, I promise. One of the nicest necks I have ever had the pleasure of playing. They are really special guitars.

Re: NGD, finally my grand prize!

I am extremely happy of course. I told the wife that I was (probably) not going to buy anymore guitars this year, and so far I bought only two.

I picked up an '06 Les Paul Custom last month for a deal I could not pass up, and now this one. I am going to have to sell off one of my amps, and some other bits and pieces I am not using to cover it, but I could not pass on this.

Re: NGD, finally my grand prize!

You sure he was the original owner? You had to win a "lottery" to be able to buy one of those new. There were only 50 for the Japan market. I had my buyer enter a few times and, nope, not lucky was I. ;/

Re: NGD, finally my grand prize!

I remember you had told me that, and what the seller told me exactly, was "I bought the guitar new in Japan". Who knows where/how he got it.

Re: NGD, finally my grand prize!

Man, the one pic looks gorgeous. I can't wait to see your pics when you get it. For all of his goofiness, PG busts out some beautiful guitars once in a while. Or did PG not have anything to do with this one, and it was all Ibanez?

Re: NGD, finally my grand prize!

It is killing me that I wont have it until this weekend, but I am lucky that a friend was in the same town on business and was able to pick it up.

I would flip if it got lost/damaged in shipping.

Proper pics when it arrives.
