    NGD: SCHB II

    Got it yesterday on Pi Day. Oddly I snapped a pic on my phone and it was picture #314...no joke, no planning! Is it a sign?!? Haven't got to plug into an actual amp yet, have just done some unplugged strumming and played thru my phone for a minute. I couldn't turn down the price I got it for and I think the top and back are stellar. Here's some phone pics to start:

    Damn! You didn't say it was an SC. I wouldn't have been on the fence had I known.

    Great score. If you get bored with it, DIBS!

    Well, got to plug her in. Sounded great with clean & high gain. Plugged the piezo straight into one of the channels of our PA. Only problem is I got some massive hum- like a ground loop hum. This was with 2 cables plugged in at the same time. Maybe a DI like the Baggs para or something eliminates that? Should have read the little book that came with it. Have to do some research.

    You will have to lift ground on your amp if you plug to pa and amp at the same time. You are making a ground loop.

    I don't think so...

    Huh?

    What's pi got to do with three hundred and fourteen? Pi is a little over 3, silly.

    Nice guitar, though.

    I run a DI with the piezo output and some places need the ground lift on the DI. The Para is Greta, but most DIs have a ground lift, so you don't have to spend that much.

    Give me a break. I realize the picture is missing the decimal. The fact the picture was taken 3/14 and the pic is 314...never mind.
