NGD- Siggery Custom 8 string

Well, here it is. After 10 months of waiting its finally here!

This was my first custom build and although i didnt draw up any designs, i had the exact look of the guitar in my head and i can say Marty has got it spot on. Its EXACTLY how i visualised it!

Photos below..


















-Complete spec-
-Mahogany body with Quilted Maple top (oiled and polished)
-24 fret 25-28 scale Sonokeling Rosewood fretboard with scalloped frets from 24th-16th
-Wenge/Bubinga 5 piece neck with AANJ
-Offset mother of pearl half dot inlays (with 12th and 24th 2nd dot in centre of fretboard)
-Custom headstock design with locking Schaller tuners
-2 x Custom Siggery Humbuckers (creme in colour) with 3 way switch and push/pull pot for coil split.
-Jem style input jack

Alot of people may say, ah it looks like a Blackmachine, or this or that. I can say that everything on the guitar is how i wanted it, how i pictured my ultimate guitar in my head and its not a copy of any particular instrument out there. It has many of the aspects i love from several different guitars ive owned, played and seen..from the RG and Jem, to Conklin and many others.

The higher frets are 1/2 scalloped?

I'm a lover… Not a fighter... But I'm also a fighter, so don’t get any ideas.

Yes, correct. The 24th fret is exactly scalloped halfway, then as it goes down to the 16th fret, it gradually gets smaller.

I really like wood combinations and colors of those woods. Guitar looks really good. Headstock looks awesome.

I played this thing last Thursday and its safe to say that its a beautiful instrument alright. The scale length and neck radius feels 'just right', and its SO DAMN LIGHT. You guys have no idea

That is incredible, man! It looks comfy as hell to play. Is this your first multiscale?

E: Also props on the BlueSky speakers and BFD2! I use the Prodesk 2.1, they're the best speakers I've heard.

I really dig that body shape. The headstock is not exactly my taste, but i'm not sure what my taste in 8 string headstocks even is yet

There is no finish on the neck. Yea its my first multi scale, its actually a lot easier to adapt to that i was thinking.

Yea just in process of installing BFD 2.0 and all the sound packs. Underneath the BFD box is a VSSD box from Toontrack..
