    NGD and NPD!

    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.

    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!
