    NGD : nicest cockstock around!

    Ahhhh... Getting older : our adminishredder is having Les Paul GAS and i'm having GAS for guitars that doesn't have a reverse headstock... Even strangier : I've always hate the cockstock BUT not on this very particular guitar. Go figure!

    Maybe it's because i'm a Helmet fan since-forever?
    Also, isn't one of the nicest finish ever?

    So... Since I can't really stand angled TOM bridges and thick bodies, this one is intended to be my "Les Paul" or at least, to use it like I would use a LP-style single cut: 12-54's in drop C, blocked bridge, and most importantly : wearing it low.

    So far, it plays like butter. Not sure if i'm a fan of the Air Zone (I prefer hotter pickups usually), but I need to find its g-spot, height-wise.

    That is pretty!
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    The DM Norton in the bridge of my LTD (basswood) is handling Std C tuning on 12-54's pretty outstandingly
