NGD!
« on: May 04, 2021, 11:11:14 am »
I'll let here introduce herself:





2007 Gibson Les Paul Classic Custom. Some pics:
 


My birthday is next week and Toby said I should go for it so yeah, that's all the excuses I needed. There are some light scratches, the frets had some oxidation on them and nitro is doing its thing but I cleaned her up, did a setup and WOW she's beautiful. I'm thinking of maybe replacing the gold tuner buttons with perloid ones to closer match the black beauty look. Hopefully one day my playing ability will do her justice.

We’re all such a helpful bunch aren’t we? You can always find encouragement for a NGD - and she is definitely a beauty! Hope to hear you playing this one soon. Happy early birthday 😃

Oh my ... happy NGD with gusto.

Gotta say that gold fixtures and fittings ain't for me ... overall she looks wonderful ... that binding is something else.

Thanks everyone!

Hah for sure, thank you very much Mari! But you did hear me play it already - the link before the photos!

Thanks Richard! Gotta say I'm usually not a fan of gold shiny things either but once I had it in my paws I couldn't let go :D the hardware should wear and patina over time so it'll be less shiny, like these old Black Beauties.

I'm thinking of maybe getting pickup covers, old-school knobs and tuners buttons to make it look more like the old ones. The pineapple headstock will still give it away obviously.

Happy NGD and birthday to come, Ivan.

Great pictures and enjoyed your short demo. Look forward to hearing more over time.

Thanks David, so glad you enjoyed it! This is actually part of a longer song I've been working on lately, I'm waiting on a Boss RC-5 so I can load up a drum track and play it live. OM3 maybe?

That's it blame me, all my fault ? Yeah as if, you know you could not resist.  :D

Of course, who else? I'm going to print out your "go for it" comment and keep it in the case so you're directly responsible :D You can hear it right now Toby! There's a YouTube link above the photos.

Happy Birth Day Ivan and happy NGD  :)

What a beauty. I can imagine the fun you'll have as you explore the possibilities.  I find the gold bling rather attractive  ;D

I almost got a Gibson as the shorter neck is better for me but their necks are too thick.

That one is a beauty though.
