hey xykhron, I really enjoy your videos and actually I considered your previous review of the vapor to jump in this run. I don't know how much more these pickups are compared to Gabriele's previous models, and honestly I've been crazy busy so I've been barely able to try them again. Honestly I...
First, low quality photos:
It's been really long since my last NGD post and I have skipped a bunch, but I noticed there's not a lot of threads on these so I decided to make one.

Also, adding to the discussion, although I lack the proper evidence, I remember him answering a question regarding this topic on his frequent AMAs on Instagram, where he said something along the lines that he will still use and work with Mayones, but also develop this new signature model with...
