    NGD: Decibel dB1 Figured Mahogany Javelin!! (56k = Devries)

    So here it is finally guys!
    My Decibel Javelin is finally ready! (or mostly so!)
    Darren worked hard to have it ready by the time we played the Mod Club in Toronto last night, and he just barely got it done (no thanks to the hardware he ordered arriving a week late) so the strings hadnt been on the guitar even 24 hours by the time the guitar hit the stage!

    As a result i cant hold onto it just yet as there is still a bit of tweaking that Darren wants to do and he wants to let the guitar set and adjust for the next few weeks before sending her off to me, but MY GOD i loved it.

    Playing a new guitar in our set on the spot can be nervewracking, but good lord this guitar sounded and played like what i was hoping for, everything was where it should be, and it felt so natural just jumping in. And the tone, good lord! So aggressive, and yet so clear and tight, the low strings just jump out and attack you and sound so full. And the high strings are bright in a chimey but not shrill or overbearing way.
    Definitely a guitar that reacts so well to hard picking, which is something that i love.
    I had wanted this as a live guitar, but with the way it sounds, it may end up on recordings as well!

    Anyways here are some specs and pics for you to enjoy!

    I'm searching through my GRE words to find a suitable laudation. I'll report back when I have something substantial.
