    NGD: Stoner Depression Edition

    Have to sell my extra 5 string bass (the Ibanez SR3-5 EPBM if anyone's looking for a 5 string bass) and my LTD MH-7 to pay for this, but it was so worth it.



    Even got to demo it through a Pre-Gibson Mesa Badlander, which sounded amazing, BTW.

    Apparently these threads have run out of GAS?

    Oh well, no sweat.

    After Jonesing for this beauty for days, I finally took a hard look at all my gear and decided I had enough to sell to pay for this one. Went down to the shop yesterday, Capitol Guitars in St. Paul, and one of the 2 owners happened to be there - really cool guy. He worked me a smoking deal and an hour later I was driving home with it. Now I need to find an OHC that fits, as these are longer than standard 7 strings...

    Didn't expect I'd be a fan of the Fishman's, but I instantly got a killer tone with it on both the Boss Katana Mini I got the other day and the Mesa Badlander and then my DSL1. And, the push/pull gives it a nice variety of different cool tones.

    The only thing off about it was the bridge humbucker was angled back toward the bridge (the bridge coil sat deeper in the body and the neck side of the bridge humbucker sat higher) which I've seen with several of these body mount pickups. Quick easy fix and boom, instant metal machine.





    I did chuckle a bit at the Jackson description of it:

    I'm anything but "highly-technical" or a "modern metal" player. :James:

    That's a sick looking guitar. Jackson's official pictures make it look like a bag of shit

    I totally missed this thread! Fuck yeah dude, happy NGD! Also, you get to peel the little protective plastic off of the Gotohs! So satisfying...

    That thing is going to be a breeze to maintain too. Those hipshot bridges are super easy to intonate, AND it has the easy access truss rod adjustment. Score!

    Yeah, even these pictures don't do it justice. The "Baked Blue" (stoner depression... get it? ha!) has this sort of "electricity coming up through the cracks" thing going on in the right light that's just incredible. It reminds me of the first time I saw the Ride the Lightning album cover and just fell in love with that artwork.

    Thanks! This is like my 3rd happiest NGD ever (one being when I finally got my first Saber, the 2nd when I got my KM6). Haven't got to a place where I've peeled anything off yet, but will soon. Need to go hunt down a case for it today/tomorrow, then all that will commence.

    Me too. It just has that "I want to sit and stare at it" effect. Can't wait to get it hung on the wall next to my KM6, Saber and Franken7.

    The really crazy thing is, I like it so much I'm considering selling my Saber to buy the 6 string version of this.
