  • NGD!! Happy Birthday to me!!

    My wife caught me lusting after one of these, so guess what I got for my birthday? Epiphone 339 Ultra Limited Edition Pelham Blue. (I love my wife!) After a new set of strings and a proper setup, I'm really liking it. Nice feeling neck, pickups sound good, and Pelham blue! Mmmmmm!

    Can't wait to try it out through a PA system to see what the Nanomag really sounds like. Through a guitar amp it sort of has an acoustic tone, but not quite. I'm thinking it will be perfect to play with the church band where I often need to switch back and forth between electric and acoustic.

    Size wise, it is half way between a Les Paul and a 335. VERY comfortable to play seated, but hangs kind of funny from a strap. It's lighter than my chambered LP. I'd guess about 8 lbs.

                    Thanks for your comments guys!

                    The nanomag is pretty cool and adds a lot of versatility to the guitar. I had a GraphTech Ghost piezo system on a strat a while back, and wasn't all that impressed with it... ended up selling the guitar. It was very thin sounding and not close at all to how an acoustic sounds. I think the nanomag comes closer to an acoustic sound and it also can be used like a regular single coil pickup, including higher gain stuff. It almost sounds like a tele. Piezo pickups, on the other hand, sound like crap with gain.

                    I've noticed that when running both the regular pickups and nanomag together, the tone gets real muddy and loses a lot of volume when you roll back the tone. I think I might experiment with some treble bleed circuits to get better control of the roll-off. It uses two PCBs, one for the nanomag and one for the regular controls, so modding it might be a bit tricky.

                      That's a beautiful guitar. I almost bought one last year. I was very impressed the quality. Congrats
