    Hey guys!

    I mostly just lurk but now and then I pop in, and I like to post when I've got an NGD to share.

    Yesterday I visited my local Long & McQuade (Canadian instrument retailer chain/monopoly) and I ran into a Mustang. Being a big grunge fan and having been in the past very much into Nirvana I had to play it - I've played a few of these new models but this one being an FSR due to the finish really caught my eye. Mocha Brown/'70s Sh!tStain Brown. I played it for a bit, didn't plug in, and couldn't get it off my mind the rest of the night, so I went back today and figured if I slept on it and woke up wanting it more then I really had no choice but to get it.

    I love this thing. Pics follow, and hopefully some better ones tomorrow when the sun's up:

    I haven't been playing much for awhile, but this one's got me inspired again. I plugged into a Fender Bassbreaker 007 and there was no turning back. I'll be heading back within the next couple of months to get a new amp as well and a Bassbreaker 007 or a DSL5C will be at the top of the list (I only play at home, for myself).

    I've recently moved out of the city and will be working from home, I'm hoping some toys will keep me busy in my spare time.

    For those potentially interested in one of these they're dealer exclusives: Chicago Music Exchange in the US, Andertons in the UK and maybe EU as well, and L&M here in Canada.

    Congrats on a killer little guitar.

    I love that not very common color.

    I have a '75 Mocha Strat and I dig the color.

    Here's my '75:

    It's an awesome color! I'd like to see another release or two with this finish so that I can gather a bit of a set.

    And that Strat is beautiful!

    Congrats on that, I love mine too, it's a bit different being a 1964 and I've stuck a Dirty Fingers in it :laugh2:

    It's like playing a 1970s coffee table!
    The more I look at the images the more I like them.

    I am so loving that finish.

    As perfect looking as it is, I'm wondering how a pau ferro board would look on that........:hmm:

    I'm guessing it'll be :rock:

    You've got me wondering too. I wouldn't terribly mind seeing it but I can't quite picture it looking right for some reason. I held up a spare Epi neck I've got laying around with a RW board and it didn't seem like the brown and brown was working...sort of like mixing camo. I'm thinking Warmoth roasted maple neck now...hmm.

    The only changes I'm really considering are some '70s style tuners, maybe a Graph Tech nut (but this one's pretty well cut, I'm hesitant to screw with it much). I do like the idea of an ashtray/bridge cover too.

    I agree with the RW looking too dark on an otherwise dark finished guitar, and pau ferro, being a lighter shade of woodgrain may perhaps lend itself well to that.

    But if we're talking cray cray cool roasted maple necks with a raw wood burnished and polished with stainless steel frets on a setup like that, all I can say is:
