    I remember when Vivian Campbell endorsed those. A girlfriend's dad had one and I wasn't allowed to touch it. That guitar wasn't the only no touch rule her dad set.:sneaky:

    Congrats on the NGD!

    I had that very guitar for close to a month.

    I had to return it.

    While it did play faster than any other axe in my collection, and sounded KILLER (those Duncan's were awesome) I just couldn't get past the poka-dots. Trivial, shallow (perhaps)..... 1st world problems? Maybe? But I've since heard rumours that they are going to release the NS in other finishes, perhaps the lightning or Aztec, maybe even solid colours..... of any, I'll jump all over.

    Nothing wrong with polka dots on a guitar. Looks good.

    Most fret boards have polka dots on them.

    But there are some places I do draw the line with polka dots...

    I know. I regret returning it. But, one day I'll get one again!

    ‘they are going to release Aztec and solid black, according to what I saw on the Kramer forum. That forum doesn’t get much a
    Croon though. There are only 750 members on it.

    ‘when I sent my son a pic of it, he said “well It’s a good thing you know how to play, ha ha.

    Well, I just went through setting the intonation again. The neck moved after a couple of days, and my D major chord on the 2nd and 3rd frets was putrid. The stew Mac Floyd tool is awesome. Took about 20 minutes to adjust all six saddles. I also straightened the neck a bit.
