    Hello guys,

    I've lurked SSO a few times but never made a post until now. This is from 1.5 weeks ago, and I uploaded the video yesterday.

    The original text for the NGD:

    New Guitar Day!!! GOC 8 string Materia armed with GOC 4th dimension pickups. Another fine addition to my headless guitar family. [​IMG]

    GOC Guitars gave me permission to mention the following:

    I was one of the Neko Guitars clients that GOC Guitars has been most kind in helping out.

    I purchased a guitar from Neko Guitars back in 2016, one I would never receive. Something serious happened to the owner of Neko Guitars at a personal level which ultimately led to the company’s collapse. He then transferred GOC over with the request that GOC aid any client Neko Guitars owed money to, this was something he insisted on. GOC verified Paypal transactions of Neko clients and the owner of Neko Guitars verified this with a CPA. Once it was confirmed there was indeed a transaction, GOC aided those individuals.

    I am forever grateful, and unbelievably fortunate that things turned out like this. I’d like to extend my sincerest thanks to both GOC Guitars for donating me a guitar, and the owner of Neko Guitars for his request. A long-awaited happy ending [​IMG]

    I’d also like to extend a special thank you to Michael Campbell for persuading me to reach out to GOC Guitars.

    Here's a link to the unboxing video:

    I've just seen the video now, wtf, why didn't they trim the strings at the factory? Also, was it me or the allen keys were just floating inside one styrofoam cavity?

    Besides that, the guitar looks really cool.

    Wow, nice to hear that they transferred your order from Neko to GOC!

    How do you like it in comparison to your Strandberg?

    Yes and yes. Small things, cutting off the strings ends takes less than 10 seconds really. The allen keys had their own compartment, but were just there, no biggy....

    I like both of them. Not sure how I'd compare them to each other, GOC's neck feels very Ibanez like, maybe just a little thicker. I like to use the analogy that the Strandberg feels like a state of the art aircraft since it's so light with the excessive chambering in the swamp ash, while the GOC just feels like a military grade battle armored tank.

    I regret not getting in on this run. Hopefully they do another one soon. Looks like they really came through with these builds.
