ok guys guitar arrived 30 minutes ago and other than not one stich of paper work with the guitar she's bran new .... supposed to be used or maybe a return who knows? any way let me get some pics posted....

she's a little fat feeling in the neck but not too bad. pick ups sound great atleast the bridge does so far. i have to play it some more but atm i'm going to have to say i haven't found any fret buzz ,,, i'm sure i'll find some though.

Supposed to have a thin neck, which is one of the reasons I likely won’t own one, but ebony fretboard and that new headstock...looks so good with all that binding!!!!! Congrats, man!!!!

Do your neck truss adjustment first, then string height, pups and last but very important....Nut.

Looks great btw!

ok guys so to sum this whole deal out. i bought the guitar used for 449 dollars and i picked up a new case for 99 dollars for a total of 617 dollars including the tax and delievery charge since the guitar was used. i love the way the guitar looks and the head stock is so much cleaner with the revised version..this weekend i'm going to try and set it up. guitar seems to have been taken home by the previous owner who did a shit job or great job of making this thing play like crap.....

You did well. If you’re not getting the results you’d like when you try to set it up, take it to a reputable shop/luthier. It’ll be a massive improvement.

Most of these things are pretty easy to do, and it’s kind of fun to learn to do them yourself. As with anything else, there are tons of online videos that help tremendously. Just check the comments below to confirm that the person in the video actually knows what they’re talking about.

Congrats and happy NGD! The gold hardware on customs just looks immense. As for setting it up, I would recommend watching a couple of videos online first, it helps so much to see someone doing it vs just reading about it. If you have any questions or concerns though just ask. Also if possible see if you can get one of those string action rulers, they are incredibly useful.
