    Hi guys

    I commissioned this awesome overkill pure ebony superstrat.
    I told my luthier buddy what I wanted but it turned out even better than I imagined.

    We discussed every detail starting with selection of the woodblocks to fitting of the Tremmory stabilizer und the tone capacitor.

    I am VERY happy how it turned out. I am going to wall mount it in my living room soon.
    It plays and feels great.. Couldnt have asked for more

    Its not the lightest, but really not as heavy as you might think it would be

    Heres the specs and some porn (it looks even better in person)
    -NTB construction
    -Solid ebony body
    -Ebony fretboard no inlays
    -Ebony neck
    -Black pearloid binding (front and neck)
    -Black floyd pro (narrow)
    -Black locking tuners
    -Bareknuckle Ragnarok set + black PP knobs

    Happy NGD! Is the binding on the headstock wonky, or does it just look that way up against the colored grain of the wood plate on there?

    amazing! The body, neck and fingerboard are all beautiful and luxurious guitars.
    I'm curious about one thing, but what is the weight of this guitar?

    It sounds excellent to my ears. Its a number or two brighter than my ESP custom. The sustain is insane.
    You can feel the wood vibrating when playing

    Really cool, looks awesome! Having got an ebony neck on my most recent, I don't think I'll go back!
