It's arrived! My first custom guitar! Some of you may have followed the build update thread, so check out the progress and the initial specs/rationale here https://www.sevenstring.org/threads/just-ordered-my-first-custom-with-vandermeij-guitars.342603/ But thought I'd post a NGD thread with the Pro shots that I recieved along with my initial thoughts. My first thought (other than holy cow this looks good!) was how light and resonant it was. I love all of the smaller details (like the Wenge middle layer, maple purfling, and set neck and body carves). Fretwork is great, and for a multiscale newbie I've had no difficulties adapting. Proably could do with a minor truss rod tweak and to lower the action slightly but thats personal preferance. Overall it was a pleasure dealing with Koen, would highly recommend working with him and this guitar is on par (at least) with my 2 Mayones. Can't wait to get writing recording, and giggind with this thing!
