    NGD! My baby is back!

    When I was 16 (1998 )I was a victim of some manufacturing/design flaws carried out by a well known Canadian bike company that was sold at a large very well known Canadian retailer. I am legally not allowed to mention the companies involved as part of our settlement agreement. 
    I was okay other than nearly 200 stiches to keep this mug looking sexy! " alt="" border="0" /> Always wear a helmet kids!

    Anyway I had took my settlement money, headed right to the guitar store and picked out a lovely black Gibson Les Paul Studio.

    A few years past and I fell in love with my Tele once again and grew tired of the LP. So I decided to trade it off to a friend for his acoustic. He was pretty much gigging fulltime and I figured he could get some use out of it. Plus I absolutely loved his acoustic. 

    So earlier this week I got a message saying he just picked up a White Falcon and no longer needs the LP and wondered if I would like to trade back. 

    I hadn't touched the acoustic for well over 6 months and I am primarily an electric player. 

    Today was the day and we made the exchange. 

    It has seen a bit of playing time. Loads of buckle rash and a once busted headstock but it plays like new! Actually a bit better, he fixed the faulty pickup selector.

    Thanks!!

    Not quite as well known as Norco but close.

     

    Oh ya this thing oozes mojo now. It was practically new when I traded it to him. I was afraid to set it down anywhere but in the case. Now I am not too concerned

    I removed the pickguard and IMO it looks way better!
