'Sup, dudes? NGD for me
I've been trying to find a "perfect" guitar for awhile now (like all of us) and this is the next stop on that path. A Rasmus S100 - to those who don't know, it's effectively a Suhr Standard that was built in China, then assembled and set up at the Suhr HQ in California.
This one's H-S-S, which is very ideal (second only to an H-S setup), so I'm stoked about that.
The finish is IMPOSSIBLE to get a good shot of... Just imagine the sexiest dark blue Mercedes you can think of instead of this lowlight camera phone shot:
Maple Neck - Rosewood fretboard
Jumbo frets (not SS)
SSH+ in bridge, FL single coils in middle and neck
Love it so far. Setup's pretty much perfect. Only thing I need to do is put some foam on the spring and install straplocks - aside from that, I'd feel comfortable gigging it as soon as tonight.
The bridge pickup is way too hot for my taste, though. May be getting replaced with something else soon... the Anderson H2 is my favorite bridge pickup ever, but that's just wrong, haha. The single coils sound great with my rig and I'm stoked about having all the tones I need in one guitar.
