NGD Ibanez AWD102 Custom.
So I just scored this little beauty.
Almost unplayed and it came with a custom-fitted hard case as a bonus.
Really unusual instrument, Gibson scale length, chambered wings, solid centre with a set neck, Ibanez Super 58 pickups, even solid wooden porkpie hat knobs.
The neck is as straight as an arrow, the fret-ends are like full prestige bullet ends, it's acoustically quite loud and I cannot find a single quality issue anywhere, it's literally perfect.
Made in China 2006 by the Saehan facility!
As far as I can tell this was only available for custom order from the Artcore custom catalogue in 2005 and 2006 and there were not very many sold.
I've decided to add a Graphtech ghost piezo saddle system to it and to keep it looking as clean as possible I'm junking the standard volume pot and just fitting a blend pot with centre detent instead to control the piezo.
I'm shocked how good it is for a Chinese guitar.
