  • NGD Orange Strat!

    OK, this is a tad overdue since I actually finished it last week. I just had to shim the nut

     

    I am also completely terrible at taking pictures. Not that the quality of my photographs is poor... But I'm always so preoccupied with other things that I never even remember to pick up the camera. LOL

     

    Well, here it is.

     Orange Strat!


    Body: AllParts, Candy Apple Orange

    Neck: Mighty Mite, MM2902FCR, maple board, compound radius, Floyd nut shelf (R2)

    Bridge: ORIGINAL Original Floyd Rose, thinner baseplate from early '80s, with a black d-Tuna

    Pickguard: Warmoth three-ply white pearl, cut for Floyd and Fat Trembucker

    Controls: CTS, 500K volume, 250K tones, and CRL 5-way

    Tuners: Guitar Fetish Gotoh style with pearloid buttons

    Pickups: GFS VEH in the bridge, DiMarzio Area '67s in the middle and neck

    Looks great!  How does it play?  Are you happy with the setup at this point in time?

      It plays pretty damn sweet. Probably has the lowest action out of all my guitars.

    righteous!...I also just had to put together an orange guit recently because it's such a seldom seen color and looks cool. Looks great!

        Nice!
        But, it's missing a GilmourD logo on the headstock.

          It's this body.

          Any AllParts dealer should be able to get it for you at 25%-30% off that list price.

            Very nice. I like it a lot better than I expected to from the description. Congratulations and Happy New Guitar Day.

              That's niiice. I'm not usually a fan of orange OR metal-flake (metallic?) finishes but I think this works out well. Good job! Bet she plays great. HNGD!

                    I would have gone with a plain pickguard. I think the perloid pickguard detracts from the great orange finish. Great guitar.
