NGD Koa goodness! RG2120KKB

Man this is bittersweet. I have a love affair with Koa and this has to be the most gorgeous guitar I have had come to me. I tried to find out about the model before I got it, but there was some conflicting info on the necks. I had to make a quick decision so I scooped it up. I am a Wizard, Super Wizard, and Pretige Wizard fan, so I was hoping it would have the Prestige wiz...but alas it has the Prestige Ultra. I want to get along with it bad, but I'm not sure I will.
But she is drool worthy to me to look at.

There was an actual JC model with a real top, this is not. Prestige with the veneer top.

My bad, I actually got the info from your site, out of the description on one of the ones you sold. I fixed my post though so thanks.

Ooops, my bad, I should have confirmed before my bad memory took over! The serial number gives it away, I wish I had taken neck pocket pics.
The JC was a real 4mm Koa top though.

By the serial number gives it away, you mean the second stamped one? Like they put that on the ones that came out of the J Custom Shop?

Correct, the neck was, not sure about the body though.

Re: NGD Koa goodness! RG2120KKB

If I pull the neck, is there a marking in the pocket I should look for?

Wow, that is a gorgeous guitar. If you decide that you can't get along with that neck, please let me know. I actually really like the Ultra. We could work out some kind of trade, sale, whatever. The veneer top wouldn't be a bother to me either.

I suck at taking pics, but what would you consider a neutral backround and I will see what I can do.

That's a beauty! Congrats! ^ ^ Grey, black or white are neutral, or something with a muted color. That red is quite bright. To tell the truth I did not even notice it though until I read the above post. That wood grain and shine is what caught my attention.
