Re: NGD !!! First Norlin !!!!

Congratulations, and welcome. Since you chose the best color I can tell you have incredibly good taste

I would guess your pickups are probably T Tops. Keep them, they are becoming popular and more pricey now.

Cool Custom,dripping MoJo.
How do you like it? How's it compare with your R9 ?I have a 71 Deluxe and a VOS 57 Custom.They're different in tone and feel,the Deluxe is lighter,but I love them both.

Re: NGD !!! First Norlin !!!!

It looks so classy in with the others, with it's inlay starting on the 1st fret. It's beautiful...and that fretboard looks like black glass. It really stands out, like a red-hot momma with her tag-a-longs beside her hahaha!! j/k, they all look like killers.

hey, I would happily put up with 12lbs of her...

Nice rig brother. Extra clean lookin

Correct me if im wrong but T Tops ran through 1980... 81-86 was Shaw era, still not promising shaws to everyone but in Customs its almost guaranteed

I love it Now I really can't compare it to my r9 because there's just something magical about my r9. However when compared to my trad pro it is much darker and has a thick bottom end that shakes the earth, now my trad pro has a creamy mid voice and a bit more bite to it.

Beautiful guitar.

If those three beauties were chics, there would be a gaggle of brew-hogs trailing them like remoras looking to pick up some scraps...

Love your LP. I especially like the back of the neck. You must fly playing that thing. Way to go she is a beauty and a keeper.
