New DGT day!


I already have an amazing DGT that handles the standard DGT sounds which are warm, articulate, with a vintage vibe and all so I wanted to make this one my heavy hitter. Out come the DGT p'ups and in go a brand new set of Dragons that I scored from PRS's pickup sell off a few weeks ago. These are the same p'ups that I had sent to Chris for his shootout.


It took me many emails and inquiries to everyone to figure out how to wire them in but once I got the soldering iron out it was actually pretty straightforward. If anyone else takes on this I could draw out a diagram of how they get wired in. Now this guitar sounds amazing to me with a very hot and crunchy tone that cleans up surprisingly well when you roll off the volume. I am extremely curious to hear Chris's take on these but I am very happy with them for my needs. I also dig the 'Navarro' vibe it gives the guitars looks :)


Other than the p'ups this Standard model is as terrific as the regular DGT, different tone when stock due to the all mahogany but this i felt made it better suited to the upgrades I wanted for it. Very happy with it!


I got this awesome new DGT Standard from Derek at Morgan Guitars. This is my second deal with him, he supplied my Blistertone, and I cannot say enough good about his pricing and customer service, even emailing me after the delivery to make sure I like it and am happy with the deal.

SWEET! The D1s look good in there. Love the opaque finishes on the DGTs. Congrats.

nice pool and surroundings! OT question: What's the width of the path/deck over by the pool box? We have only a 3ft conc deck around our pool and I'm thinking of tearing that out for a 5-6 footer. Too much clippings and other stuff seems to end up in the pool.

Really dig the brushed silver on the pu's. With the white rings it just creates a really nice frosty vibe. Slightly not crazy about the looks of the gold bobbins against the chrome trem - still looks like a stunner though.

Pool surround is 4 feet all around of stamped concrete. Rest is pavers.

Yes I would have preferred silver slugs on the Dragons but as they are for a long time unavailable beggars can't be choosers!

Congrats to you. What a great looking guitar! Those birds work so well with a white finish. I'd love to have one myself.

Oh yeah... killer guitar too.

Now, about Shawn and I coming for a visit... will there be beer?

Very Nice! I've been intrigued by the DGTs dual volume controls. Need to get out and play one.

Thanks - I have a feeling we'll be doing something similar next year. No sense messing things up in "full season".
As for the slugs, hope I didn't offend. It still looks gorgeous and they tie in nicely with the brass bits too.

Always beer in the fridge, but I am a bourbon guy so the selection will be better!

Awesome guitar Wedge!

Would love to hear a sound sample with the Dragon 1s
