    I disagree, it covers most of the big happenings in a several year old thread in one sentence. Which makes it the best title.

    The comment is out of context now -> it was merged from a different thread. :lol: The title at the time was just "siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick".

    No. What is this heresy? I want to see NGDs and reviews.

    I'm a bit late to the party on the pictures of the fretwork. I've been busy being a dad among other things. However, looks like they filed the fretboard while dressing the frets, not over sanding it. A file would cut through binding a bit easier. However, it doesn't look at all to me like binding. The fret ends look dangerous. I wouldn't be buying in until I saw an example of what they're shipping to people. I honestly feel like rushing a product to NAMM may have been as damaging to the brand image as everything else that's happened. I'd like to see the brand successful. There's some interesting innovation happening with them. They aren't for me. But I've enjoyed watching the product be developed. The pictures are making me nervous for the people who have ordered them though.

    I’ve cooled off, no NGD’s here. I soaked myself in the hype for a few days then let it continue on to the other folk.

    Hoping someone takes the plunge :)

    So I spec’d one out with what I’d prefer (mahogany body, maple/maple neck, that chartreuse color), and the price is not so terrible if the guitar quality is high IMHO. It’s less than I’ve paid for other guitars, that’s for sure. If there was a straight scale, Floyd option I might be in a lot of trouble. But fan frets are a no-go for me, and hardtails are boooooooring, so I’m safe on two fronts.

    if you burn sage, eye of newt, and a set of Fishman Fluences inside a circle of salt, it will summon Abasi to shred :lol:
