Thanks very much to Scotty of Guitar Brat. He and I have been chatting about guitars for many years and finally worked a trade. This ME Limited represents a significant emotional transition on my part... long story short, I traded away my prized Ken Smith bass. I play guitar almost exclusively now so I guess it made sense.

Don't worry, I kept the fretless just in case.

So without further delay... here's what Scotty is sending back my way. :cool:

Damn you! This is making it so much harder to keep from trading all 4 of my PRSi for one rosewood necked one.

I fell in love with the idea of the ME LTD when they first came out. Fortunately I waffled for long enough that they released the Studio and snagged me one of those.

wowsers that's sweet, congrats man!

You should mess with people's heads and paint that one orange, and put TWO lipstick pup's in it!

Every nice bass I have ever had has gotten sold or has been traded, girls don't usually notice the difference.

Oooooooo purdy one!

She's beautiful Hans!

Most excellent.
I do find the final 3 count down confusing though.

#1 is still in the oven.

The thread for #3 and #2 vaporized. I guess I need to rebuild those.

Very cool, Hans.

Had myself a little NGD party tonight with a slow blues jam in Am.

This showed up today. :) I now understand all the buzz from the new Studio model owners. Narrowfields sound fantastic and the wood on this guitar is exceptional. It is notably resonant.

After pulling it from the box, I yanked the strings, oiled the fretboard and the neck, loaded some nickel .10's, slammed the action, and tightened the trussrod just a hair. It is so smooth now. Man... I dig this one. I'll be keeping it.

Thanks again for a smooth deal, Scotty. I'm a very happy camper.

Awesome, love it!! Off the charts with the Rosewood Neck and the unique inlays, plus the sick top and the cool finish!

I dig those Narrowfields, had a SASNF, sold it a while back, because I felt the Humbucker plus 2 NF would be a better setup for me than 3 NF's. A Swamp Studio or a Studio has been on my wish list for a while, I just might have to get me one of those soon!

09-02-2012, 12:56 AM
Wow!! What an amazing NGD!!

09-02-2012, 07:31 AM
Great color and loving the knots! Killer score.

SWEET! A real beauty....

Beautiful! You should seriously consider a trip to the PTC for coil splitting on the Narrowfields. Before all the bad things happened to my Studio, it was my favorite mod! If I ever get another NF equipped axe, it's going straight back to Maryland for that mod.

09-06-2012, 08:48 PM
Very nice Hans, gotta love those narrowfields, they sound great.

09-06-2012, 09:41 PM
NFs are sweet, love that tone from the #2/#4 spots with those. Great top, beauty!

09-07-2012, 07:29 PM
Love it! Those inlays are incredible.

09-08-2012, 07:06 PM
Nice to see some love for the NFs. Would like to hear more about the coil splitting - something I should consider for my ME III?

09-09-2012, 01:16 PM
That color goes so well with mixed hardware. Totally sets it over the top. Congrats!!!
