    NGD - single coil edition

    Just picked this up. I'm about to hit rehearsal and put it through the paces.

    This model needs to come back.
    -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.

    Pretty sure that all SEs (except the Bernie Marsden) have always shipped with .09s.

    I threw .10s on mine it thickened it up nicely.

    Gotcha. Thanks.

    This one had .09s, but man it's weird how one gauge up makes such a difference. I really like the way it sounded, but the strings were just too slinky. Man I forgot how much single coils pop. It shined up some awkward chords nicely. My drummer liked the EG better than the Singlecut.


    I just did the full wipe down, string change, fretboard cleaning. I put on a set of .10s and with just a little tweak on the trem and it seems to be fantastic.

    Here's a question. It appears that the adjustment screw for the trem arm is missing. Is there anywhere to get a replacement?
