Default NGD - Circa 00 Maple / German Spruce - Audio/Video and Photos

(Edit)

I GOT A CIRCA!!!!

Here are a few photos taken from the trenches:









I took a few quick shots of it myself as well as soon as it landed. More to come! Here are the first few, but fair warning: The figure in that maple might induce legitimate dizziness:







EDIT - Just for y'all! These were shot on my crappy iphone, so sorry about the "headless guitarist" syndrome. Hard drive space is tight, so I had to keep the clips short. Audio isn't the best - decent headphones highly recommended. Enough apologies, though! Hope some of the personality comes across!

WOW! Beautiful flamed maple, and I love how John uses maple necks as well. I also really love the binding. Congrats!

Dude. Those pics are amazing!

And I bet you it will sound as good as it looks (or better!)!

I have an OM (adi/maple) guitar with John in the pipeline and I'm absolutely having a tough time waiting with all these build pics!!

I can't wait to hear a more detailed report after you play it!

Thanks for sharing the pics!

Wow your 00 is amazing, Brian. Looks like John totally spoiled you with fantastic looking woods all around.

I love how the figure in the neck matches the body.

I also think maple might be a good fit with your playing and really look forward to hearing your recordings.

A fine guitar for a fine player.

Congrats!
