She is beautiful. Happy NGD.

Re: My newest lady

Its here!!They made a special trip  due to there error try as I might I cannot tell the difference between this Douglas Shadow CSB and a Les Paul Standard the weight and feel,tone volume workmanship is excellent I did lower the action a tad but all the harmonics are dead on as far as I can see the only difference is the name Gibson is missing but that aint worth $2300.00 extra dollars to me I saw another guitar on Rondo I want too LOL smile

this is there Agile model love the lines and color scheme I am going to get this one too

Re: My newest lady

What I don't understand is the guitar they sent me has the cream trim around the top and the one in the photo doesn't and it weighs more then 8 lbs still its gorgeous and after I lowered the action it plays smooth intonation is excellent I spent over an hour jamming through my ME-50 getting acquainted with the tone settings the pickups are defiantly more active and responsive then my strat very big sound happy me smile

big_smile That would be due to the humbuckers \m/ big_smile  Is this the first non single coil guitar for you Russ?  I figured you had have them with all your backround.

Oh and where is the pictures? would like to see a real world picture or it didnt happen LOLOL
