    NGD: PG FBJ Q BRW OMFG

    Lots-o-letters! Didn't expect to be posting in this vein again so soon, but a streak of fortune, and "makin' things happen" have arrived at this, CantankerousCarl's "close as I'm getting in the foreseeable future to 'Private Stock Friday' Friday..."

    Absolute and utter love at first play. I didn't think anything would ever usurp my Siggy as the best-sounding guitar I own, but this PG just might have done it.

    I have heard clips, and folks describe the guitar as very "vocal" and that is probably the closest word to describing the amazing tone of this instrument. Through the Boogie, it just plain sings.

    I pretty much resigned myself to not do an NGD post again, coz they can be a bit self-serving, but I can't help myself...I am smitten...

    Don't hurt that she's a looker, too...

    On to the obligatory photos:

    It's hard to photograph, but it's almost a fade:


    Maybe a bit easier to see here:


    With flash to highlight the quilt:


    Some really nice figuring on the BRW:


    Even the back rocks:


    OK, seriously, I am done for awhile.

    Oh...almost forgot to apologize to Sergio...yes, it's unapologetic-ally blue...

    -I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.
