    Epiphone ES 339 PRO NGD!!

    Wow, these are nice guitars. Just picked this up in a trade. Cherry 2013 339 Pro. Great fit and finish, New pickups are AWESOME. Coil split feature seems like it's gonna be handy. Epiphone has really stepped up their game recently, especially in the Pro line. I can't wait to put some miles...

    NGD TV Yellow LP Special

    Picked up on ebay for a song. Nice glossy finish, can see some of the wood grain through it. Couple little dings on the back from previous owner. Fret work and fit and finish are great, just what we can expect now from Quindao. Has wood binding on neck, similar to the G-400's. The pickups...

    Pending NGD TV Yellow LP Special

    Yesterday, in another thread, I said I wouldn't buy a guitar without playing it....Whoops....It's been pretty slow around these parts for good used guitars, and I really don't NEED anymore guitars, but I've been jonesin' for a P-90 guitar. My first real guitar was an SG Les Paul Jr, always...

    NGD 96 MIK Riviera

    Just picked this up from the local shop. Couldn't find this color in the wiki. Kinda of a Metal Flake Black, VERY light MF in the paint, shows a little in the pics. Needs some rewiring, probably get some new pups, but it's good and solid, everything straight. Since my name is NOT Michael...

    NGD #1 Traditional Pro

    I was out making my weekly trip to all the stores and pawn shops, and found this. I have never liked "Colors" much on LP's, always been more of a Gold or Burst kinda guy, but it was cheap, and I picked it up and the sky's parted and a voice from above said "Take it Home!!!!!" It doesn't look...

    Elitist Pick-ups

    I recently acquired a pair of Pickups from an Elitist Les Paul, (50SR and 60ST). I don't have 'em yet, what should I expect 'tone-wise' from them? I am replacing the 57's in my Epi LP. I know what PAF's sound like, and what burstbucker and stock epi pickups sound like. Kind of an impulse...

    Truss Rod Problem

    So I guess I put this in the wrong place, so I'll try it here.... I recently picked up a 1996 Epi LP. It had a little back bow in the neck, VERY little. When I went to restring it, I tried to adjust the truss rod, which was tight, and when I backed it off, to get that wee bit of relief to...

    Epiphone LP Truss Rod problem

    I recently picked up a 1996 Epi LP. It had a little back bow in the neck, VERY little. When I went to restring it, I tried to adjust the truss rod, which was tight, and when I backed it off, to get that wee bit of relief to the neck, the nut backed of, to the point of being loose, but no...

    Question from a newbie (re: finishes)

    I have an Epi LP standard that I'm considering refinishing. Has anyone found a chemical paint/ varnish remover that WILL NOT attack the binding on the body and fretboard?? Any thoughts would be appreciated.. Ralph
