    So I posted an "incoming NGD" thread a few days ago, and now it has arrived! :D

    So here it the Official NGD thread.

    1999 MIM Standard in Midnight Blue, near mint condition. I bought this from fellow forum member @Bigdogdaddy

    He was easy to deal with, and kept good communication through the whole process. If you ever deal with him, rest assured he is a stand up guy. :thumb:

    Anyway, here is the new (to me) beauty. I tried to capture the color, but I only have an iPhone camera :rolleyes:. It looks great in person, goes from a very dark blue to a purple ish hue depending on how the light hits it. I love it!

    Now I'm gonna polish it up, and give it a setup to my preferred specs, and rock this puppy!

    Congrats. I have seen that color with a rosewood fret board. I think the maple looks better. HNGD!

    You’re not going to like it. You should just cut your losses and ship it to me so I can properly dispose of it... :)

    Enjoy buddy!!!

    Darn right it looks better in maple. I came close to taking the neck off of it and putting it on my 50th anniversary with the bum neck. It just didn't seem right cannibalizing something so nice.

    I guess great minds think alike. I have already ordered black knobs, pickup covers and switch tip. I'm gonna give it the same treatment as yours. :thumb:
