Talking NGD: so i built a rgt style guitar, check it out!!!! w/ guest appearance (56K no way)

i was gonna tell you guys a bit about my history, but i know how people are. i can't lie, i'm the same way. we just want pictures...

so pics first, specs later:

1. the nut is temporary. i'm waiting for my tax return to buy new nut files.

2. the mini switches will be replaced with black ones, don't worry.

3. the cavity cover isn't finished yet. waiting on said tax return to buy a new belt sander, so that the matching cavity cover is perfecto.




















i got the guitar done just in time for a special lesson last week. animals as leaders were in town...

tosin liked it a lot, and hopefully i'll be building him one just like it in the near future. with a few more strings of course.




superstrat style body with black limba wings, and ebony binding
thin body, at 33mm
white limba, cocobolo, and wenge neck. with volute.
satin tru-oil finish
maccasar ebony fretboard, side inlays only
25" scale length, in drop b (.062 - .012 d'addario xl)
22 frets
tom style roller bridge, string through body
hipshot locking tuners
ebony knob
recessed dunlop strap locks
bare knuckle nailbomb in the bridge
dimarzio air norton in the neck
one volume, three way pickup selector, mini switch for each pickup (just coil splitting, for now)

this guitar is all wood and metal were possible. no plastic. including the side markers...

i grew up playing rg's, and i always wanted a rgt style guitar. but i could never afford one. so i started building this a few years ago. i was building drums at the time, and had access to some good equipment. i've been working with wood my whole life, and grew up watching my grandfather build and design acoustics. well i got away from the drum building and moved around a bit, holding onto this beauty until the time was right. and that time is now.

there's a few minor things that I'm not 100% happy with. mainly the pickup routes being slightly big, and the 19th fret marker that is a little off. but I'm pleased with the way it came out. the next one will be perfect...

enjoy!!!

I like how the pickups are mounted from the back. That's pretty cool.

The woodwork looks perfect.
The choice of woods is very unusual, but they fit together really nicely. Great guitar!

Wow, man, that is one extremely beautiful guitar! I loved the build thread, but I certainly did not expect it to turn out this beautiful! Congratulations!

I didn't catch the build thread... What's with the hole on the top on the bass side of the bridge?

it's cool, it wasn't mentioned in the build thread. it's called a wormhole. basically it's where a worm burrowed through the tree, and left a nice tunnel behind. some people don't like them, i do

Love it!

Also major appreciation for the reverse pickup mounts. I am a huge proponent of that design.

Wow man that's a really nice guitar! Well done!

However I am interested in your history
It'll be cool if you get to build one for Tosin too, can't wait to see your next one!
