    NGD

    20th Anniversary gift from the wife. The story is too long, so here's the pics: (Using some of the dealers to save time)




    Model: SC Hollowbody II
    Top Wood: Maple
    Frets: 22
    Top Spec: Quilted Maple
    Top Grade: Artist
    Neck Wood: East Indian Rosewood
    Neck Carve: Pattern (Wide/Fat)
    Fingerboard Wood: Gaboon Ebony
    Inlay: Artist Package Birds
    Bridge: Piezo Adjustable Stoptail
    Color: Red Tiger
    Hardware: Hybrid (Nickel and Gold)
    Treble Pickup: 57/08 Covered
    Middle Pickup: none
    Bass Pickup: 57/08 Covered
    Electronics: Piezo (Hollowbody)

    First I want to thank all the guys who helped me figure out what I really wanted. Veinbuster, rugerpc, jfb and others really offered great advice and were kind enough to let me try some guitars I wouldn't have otherwise had access to.
    It's only been an hour, but this guitar is AWESOME! I love that it has enough volume unplugged to just sit around strum. The thing sustains forever. Love the IRW neck, feels so nice. Didn't get the purple I was dreaming of (although Brian tried his best) since quilt top HB's aren't being made this year, only flame. But all in all I managed to find 95% of what I was looking for. There's always next time... (I know my wife doesn't read guitar forums so I can say that here)

    Killer.

    Is that a 2014? I thought they stopped using binding. Available in AP?

    Thanks guys.

    Can't believe I just missed your 5000th post Sergio. I tried to time buying a guitar for that.

    It is a 2013, faux binding. I wanted to have a 2014 AP built, but that meant no quilt. Thanks for reminding me to go plug in the MODCAT!

    Congrats on the new guitar and your anniversary! It may not be purple, but that is a heck of a top and back and red tiger is a great color!
