    NGD x 2: all American Edition.

    So, it’s been a while since I bought myself some guitars. Long story short: sold my old house, bought a new one with the girl, profit was made, guitars were bought.

    It’s the first time I own an American made Fender and a Gibson. I’ve had Mexi-Strats and Epiphones in the past… Now it’s time for gentleman’s stuff. And I’m 41, FFS. lol

    I'm still in love and prefer reverse headstocks over anything else... But I've been pretty disapointed with what's on the market. I know they’re not that popular here, but I’ve always loved SG’s. To me, SG’s are to rock / metal guitars what Sabbath is for rock / metal bands. I’ve been looking for a “white” (let’s say “cream”) Standard for a looong time. Glad I found one. Love it! 10-52’s on it, Standard E / drop D.







    Specs :

    Gibson SG Standard Limited

    • Handcrafted in Nashville, TN USA
    • Body: Genuine mahogany
    • Pickguard: Full-size SG
    • Neck: Genuine Mahogany (SG Taper)
    • Fingerboard: Baked Maple/Trapezoid Inlays
    • Hardware: Chrome ; Vintage tuners
    • Electronics: Gibson 490R/498T
    • Bridge: Tune-O-Matic with stopbar tailpiece
    • Case: Gibson Hardshell Case

    ...

    Now, another one I’ve been searching for a long time. Absolutely wanted a white one. Found one in a little shop in Minnesota.
    Rhapsody Music. They were absolutely great to deal with.

    The neck on this thing… Wow. Compound radius… Satin finish… Stellar fretwork.
    For those familiar with the Charvel Pro-mod, I’d say the whole guitar is right up there in terms of mojo. Madly in love.

    For now, it has a set of 10 – 60’s on it and it’s in C# / drop B.










    Specs :

    Jim Root Fender Stratocaster

    • Flat white with bright white pick-guard (nitrocellulose lacquer).
    • Mahogany body with shaped neck joint for easier access to higher frets.
    • Bolt-on, one-piece maple neck/fretboard, C-shape, 12-16" compound radius, 21 jumbo frets, 25.5" scale,
    dot markers, satin finish.
    • Fixed, string-thru bridge.
    • Fender Deluxe sealed locking tuners (black).
    • Large '70s style headstock.
    • One volume pot.
    • Three-way pickup toggle switch.
    • EMG 60 (neck) and EMG 81 (bridge).
    • Schaller straplock buttons.
    • Flight case with strap, Schaller straplocks and extra buttons included.
    • Certificate of authenticity



    OH, also got me a 6505MH. Absolutely loooove this little beast! Sounds amazing.

    No reverse headstock no care.

    Well, those are both awesome

    I agree on SGs. They have a really distinctive sound and feel, and that Root strat has a kind of "aggressive, stripped down vintage" vibe.

    How is the 6505 MH?
    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

    Congrats.

    I wonder why they keep doing angled strings at the Nut... its a known cause for going out of tune easily and they didn't managed to correct that shit... please don't tell me because its the classic way of doing things because thats the most obtuse answer ever...

    That's exactly the reason. Don't want to change the Gibson headstock.

    Grats, man! I love that white SG! I'm saving for a white 2013 SG - which had the '61 pickguard. Yours looks killer.

    I like your white Jim Root as well, but I really dig the SG.
    All I can ask is that I suck a little less each time I pick up my guitar...
