  • My short-lived NGD...

    Well after waiting 10 days for my new "dream" guitar to ship from California to my house, I was quite disappointed. I love non-reverse Firebirds and since I sold off a lot of my collection for the sake of simplicity, I figured I would splurge a bit on something I have always wanted! After ordering, I was told it would be shipping from the Guitar Center out in Hollywood since it was apparently the last one in the system (in sunburst at least) among GC, MF, and M123. I originally wanted Pelham Blue, but it was listed with baked maple, unlike the sunburst model. Well to my surprise, which wasn't really much a surprise after researching it after ordering, it came with the infamous baked maple fret board. Plus my fears of buying a guitar straight from a Guitar Center floor also came true. The headstock had a chip out of the side as well as nicks on the top. Scrapes along the side of the body too. The guitar sounded alright. The switching was cool and all with coil taps and out of phase. The neck was a bit wide for my liking. Just wasn't worth the 1000+ dollars I spent on it. So within an hour of opening the box today, I returned it to my Guitar Center. Ended up ordering a nicely price matched Gibson Melody Maker Special and a Green Vox AC4 to match my AC15, along with extra money back in my pocket.



    Guitars: Harmony H45, Epiphone Dot Deluxe, Fender Mustang, Gibson MM Special, Gibson B25, Teisco Mayqueen
    Amps: Vox AC4, Vox AC15, Harmony H205, Silvertone 1430, Gibson G10

    Sorry to hear it didn't work out. Hopefully your next guitar will be better.



    I'd be ok with scrapes on a used guitar, but I wouldn't accept them on a new one (says the guy who owns a Road Worn Strat).



    Hopefully all's well that ends well!

                        That's a shame, I really like the looks on that guitar. As has been mentioned, nicks and scrapes are fine on a used guitar, but unless they really make it worth your while, they are a deal breaker on what is advertised as a new guitar.
