    NGD: How's this for Black'n'Pointy?

    So after a $#%& month and a bit with a ruined clutch and wedding bills soaring I had a stroke of luck and got this old Beast for a steal! I used to have the old BC Rich catalog and I loved these, so mental but I could never find one...luckily the seller kindly drove it to my house! It needs new...

    NGD: Today is a G'day!

    So I WAS meant to be saving for a .strandy* but after suffering a back injury I found myself not able to pick up my current guitars. Mild depressive episode and a reassuring chat with my amazing lady-partner and GuitarGuitar Epsom I was able to nab this beautiful boy! One Ormsby...

    So I got bored the other day and blagged another LTD Viper from a cashconverters for £100, I've decided I'm gonna try and make budget version of the Volsung LTD (Lars Frederickson sig) any ideas on good parts to keep it below £400? I figured possibly Irongears for pickups but locking tuners on a...

    NGD: Heading Loooooow....*sorry lots of pics*

    So in the space of a month I've missed out on TWO separate SC-607 sunburst models. But thanks to a little help from my other half I have managed to score the model up! And make great use of our sunshine :P So negatives first, 8 strings isn't ideal as it still confuses the jebus out...

    NGD: Caution Contains Purple...

    Finally got my 611! Great colour and so versatile! The pickup choice is great, both Seymours, a SP90 and a splittable Custom 5. The top is stunning, it has a great shimmer to it, I compared it to a premium ibanez and this made it look like a photo... Other specs are Graph Tech black TUSQ bridge...

    I have reached my Horizon!

    Before the juicy stuff, a little story: - Back in 2009 a Japanese guitar brand released a signature model based on a particular player's battered old guitar. A sort of Redish-pinky-fuchsia (yes Magenta) I loved it from the off but only working 20 hours a week at a little shop I couldn't afford...

I'll also limit it to one pic per guitar:) First up was a Dean Cadillac Select from a Cash Converters :P I've said many times that it's one of my fave shapes so finding this one for dirt cheap made me smile :) Next was another absolute bargain: Dean...

    NBD / NBCD Old Japanese and a cover...

    Got me a eBargain again :D Not much is known yet like body wood or pickup or even the brand! PCGC is the repair shop that sold it. The neck is reeeaaally thick like baseball bat thickness but it's actually really comfortable even if the frets are teeny-tiny, there is a loudish grounding buzz but...

    NBD: B-Stock wins again!

    I posted a tease of this in the gas thread and having been saved by Thomann (their price for this b-stock is £652, the UK price is £1099!!) I had sold about two thirds of all my gear and had a spare hangar (on the bass wall @JimothyBeed) so I thought "what do I NOT have bass wise?" I didn't have...

    NBD Sterling content old chap!

    As some may know I'm very very fond of my little white pbass, but it lacks cut for some things I'm working on with some other guys (and gals) so this happened... Unlike other sterlings it has an African mahogany body not ash and a nice quilted maple top in "Honey Burst" looks more...

    DelayedGD - Pablo'd Content!

    Didn't do a thread when I first got it as it needed work but here it is! Squier Telecaster Custom II! Always wanted one of these as no matter where you looked the reviews were great and at that time I wasn't earning enough to buy as much as I do now haha! When I got it the jack fell out, the...

    2xNGD + 1 Delayed (Just what the Doctor...ordered?..)

    Where to start? From the top! A whole month early (13th) after weeks of going do I go Squier tele or a Squier Jazzmaster for mods? Only for my glorious other half to surprise me with this! We were at GuitarGuitar in Camden and I was trying jazzmasters and said jokingly to the staff that...

    Your Main Guitar: TPS style

    So I've been watching That Pedal Show a lot recently and one of my favourite sets of videos is where they talk about their own guitars, so apologies if this sort of thread has been made before (feel free to throw the old virtual brick at me) but I am genuinely interested in people's guitar tales...

    NGD Out with the new, in with the Old(ish)

    Short and sweet tonight :) Went down to my local and traded in two guitars and got this in return: That boys and girls is a 2005 PRS Custom 22 (not a bonafide anniversary model but has 20th on the truss rid cover) has Dragon II humbuckers, volume tone and 5-way rotary switch (combos "we...

    WTB By way of trade: PRS SE Mikael Åkerfeldt

    So that's what I'm looking for, I plastered it all over the Facebook trade groups just thought I would put one here :) This is what I'm offering in exchange; my Gibson 2016 P90 SG, has light play wear by the pots which is hard to photo and there's a blemish around the bridge post but it is...
