NGD - DC127

Postby Sparky131 » Fri Oct 21, 2016 9:26 pm

After a particularly rough day, I came home to this and I'm completely floored. K/C knocked it out of the effin park. Pardon my camera skills, I'm an audio guy far more than I'm a visual guy.

Obligatory box shot:

The moment my jaw hit the floor:

I wasn't sure how I would feel about the thin burst after seeing the posts about it AFTER I had ordered. But I have zero complaints. The Lithiums are currently waiting for me to review after I can actually plug this in:

Birdseye maple board w/matching headstock overlay. Props to Mike for suggesting a satin finish on the headstock to match the fretboard:

The only issue is that it's 11:30pm in Chicagoland and I really want to plug this in!

I really like this one! Modest yest beautiful. The zebra pickups really set it off and add the icing. Is it candy red metallic with a blackburst?

Ferrari red. I dunno if the blackburst plays into it, but it's a little darker than I thought it was going to be and it's exactly how I hoped.

Yeah, I based it off a G&L Invader I used to look at all the time in their catalogs at my old music store. Way too excited for this guitar.

Great looking DC! The G&L-like redburst is perfect! I also agree that the zebras are a nice touch on this axe. Sweet build!
